In fact, some of its facilities received almost perfect inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Mountain Top one of our best ratings in that area with an A-. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies.
