An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.
