As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor.

Without all of the deficiency related data for this nursing home, it was challenging to really evaluate it in the area of inspections.
