One of the reasons this proved to be a decent facility is it earned a very favorable inspection score. In this area, we gave this facility a B+.

Facilities with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
