While its overall grade was awful, this city's nursing home performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. The second best grade we gave this place in any category was its long-term care score, where it earned a B-. Finally, we gave Pharr abysmal grades in our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
