We found this city grade to be considerably better than the city grade of D received by the nearby city of Sun Prairie. If you are choosing between these places, Madison appears to be a no brainer. This city's nursing homes are stronger in some categories than others, but it didn't have any weak links in any of our four major categories. More information about these categories can be found in the next section.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded its facilities an A- for this category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. In addition, the city also excelled in the area of short-term care with a B+. In our final two categories, this place earned a B in our nursing category and a B- for long-term care.
