In addition to having quality nursing homes on the whole, this city really excelled in the category of inspections, where we gave it an A. Very few cities earned a better grade in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. In addition, we also awarded Lehighton an A- in our nursing rating. Rounding out its report card, this place received favorable grades for our long-term care and short-term care categories as well.
