In addition to performing well in its overall grade, many of the facilities in Aberdeen performed extremely well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received almost flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. In addition, we also awarded this city an A- for our short-term care category. Wrapping up its quality report card, we gave the city a B+ for its nursing rating and a B in the area of long-term care. We really found this place to be competent in each category we assessed.
