This city received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of its nursing homes received virtually perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Cordova an elite grade of A+ in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. In addition, the city earned a B+ in our long-term care category. In the last two categories, Cordova earned middle of the pack grades in our nursing and short-term care categories.
