Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Our short-term care grade is often employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing.
