Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.
