PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Typically in May, the city's police force sees an average of 15 aggravated assault cases.

LENOX, Mass. — After the Department of Public Health completed its annual survey at Kimball Farms Nursing Care Center, it issued a report that is rare in Massachusetts: deficiency free, for the fourth time in recent history.

In perhaps the most regulated industry within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and across the nation, nursing facilities are thoroughly surveyed and rated on core criteria including quality care, safety, administration, food service, nursing care and patient rights.
