Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed spectacularly well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received nearly flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, Gallatin received one of our highest ratings in that area with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. The city earned a B for our short-term care category. In the last two categories, we awarded the city a C for long-term care and a C in nursing.
