While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city's nursing homes an A for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. The city also excelled in the category of government long-term care with a B. In the last two categories, the city received a C for short-term care and a grade of D in the area of nursing. In spite of an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating of this caliber may be a bad sign for levels of nurse staffing.
