While this city received a middle of the road overall grade, its inspection grade is notably higher than its overall grade. Due to some of its nursing homes receiving favorable inspection reports this year, Arlington received one of our higher grades in that category with a B. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, Arlington also received an impressive short-term care rating with a B in this category. In the last two categories, this place earned slightly below average grades in our nursing and long-term care areas.
