In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, most of the nursing homes in Okatie performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded Okatie an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. In addition, the city also earned one of our better grades in our short-term care category, with a grade of B+. Lastly, this place received grades of B- and D for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively. We are somewhat disappointed by its nursing grade, but there's still plenty to be impressed with on this place's report card.
