It received a decent grade in this category with a B-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect.
