To pair with a strong overall grade, we gave this place a grade of A+ for inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
