On top of being a strong facility overall, it also received A+ inspections recently. Its inspections are virtually perfect. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
