Please continue reading to learn more about how this city's nursing homes were rated in our category grades.
This city received a somewhat average overall grade, however, we really want to point out that some of the nursing homes in the city almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Lima also received strong short-term care score with a B in this category. In the other categories we looked at, we awarded the city a B- for nursing and a grade of C for long-term care.
