The best part of this place's profile is its nursing homes' remarkable inspection scores. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph.
While its overall grade was somewhat average, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. Inspections appears to be this city's second best grade. It received a B- in this category.
