As mentioned above, this city received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of its nursing homes received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded Lancaster an elite grade of A for this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Lancaster also excelled in the category of government nursing with a B. Wrapping up its profile, the city earned grades of B and D for our long-term care and short-term care categories respectively. For the most part, we were pleased with this place's grades, but it really struggled in our short-term care category. This may be a problem for those looking to find a rehabilitation facility here.
