Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent score in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
