This city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities received nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave Columbia an elite grade of A- for this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. The city performed spectacularly well in the category of short-term care as well. As a result, the city received an A- in that area. Rounding out its impressive profile, the city received a B+ in our nursing category and a B+ for long-term care. This city did not have any weak links based on our assessment.
