This city received a fairly ordinary overall grade, but we really want to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We awarded them an elite grade of A in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Lancaster also excelled in the category of government nursing with a B. In the last two categories, Lancaster received a B- in our long-term care category and a grade of D for short-term care.
