In fact, we awarded the city an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death.
