This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
