As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A. Our inspection grades are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients.
