This city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities received nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We gave Erie an impressive grade of A in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. The city received a B in our long-term care category. In the other categories we looked at, we gave Erie slightly below average grades for our short-term care and nursing areas.
