This city received a fairly ordinary 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 them an elite grade of A- in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. The city also received an impressive nursing rating where it earned a B in this area. Lastly, Newport News received middle of the road grades for our short-term care and long-term care areas.
