As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of the city's nursing homes received almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave Wausau an impressive grade of A- in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death.
