The last category we assessed is inspections. This facility did not receive favorable government inspection reports in recent years. We gave it an F in this category. This ended up pulling down this facility's overall score significantly. For nursing homes with bad inspection ratings, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines recently of more than $100,000.
