This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection scores are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
