We wanted to note that this city's inspection rating was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Garner a B+ for its inspection grade, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Inspections appears to be Garner's next best attribute. The city earned a B- in this category. In the other categories we looked at, we awarded the city slightly below average grades in our nursing and short-term care areas.
