This city's overall grade was propped up by its inspections in recent years. We gave the city one of our higher grades in that category, with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. The city also fared well in the area of government long-term care with a grade of B. In the last two categories, we awarded the city middle of the road grades for our short-term care and nursing categories.
