While its overall grade was not elite, the nursing homes in Ashland City performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded Ashland City an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. The city also received an impressive long-term care score where it earned a B in this category. Lastly, Ashland City earned grades of B- and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. Even with an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing score in this range may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
