To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this city an A- in our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. In addition, Greenville also fared well in the category of long-term care with a grade of B+. Wrapping up its strong report card, this place were awarded a B+ for its short-term care rating and a B in nursing. Greenville really did not have any weak links based on our assessment.
