One of the best aspects of this city's stellar report card is its nursing homes' inspection scores. Inspection grades are discussed in the next section.
On top of having quality nursing homes on the whole, this city's nursing homes really excelled in the area of inspections, where we gave it an A+. Few cities fared this well in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. We also wanted to emphasize that we gave the city a grade of A in our short-term care rating. Rounding out its straight A report card, the city were awarded an A in our nursing category and a grade of A in the area of long-term care.
