One of the more important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we also want to point out that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This typically suggests that a facility's bad track record has been an issue for several years.
