The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L.

A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
