One of the major highlights of this city's profile is its exemplary inspection reports, which you can find in the next paragraph.
This city received a somewhat average overall grade, however, we really would like to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city virtually perfect health inspections the past few years. We gave it an impressive grade of A- in this category. Inspection grades are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. In addition, the city also excelled in the category of long-term care with a B. In our final two categories, we gave Tyler a C for short-term care and a C in the area of nursing.
