In addition to receiving a great overall score, this place also received first-rate inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in this category, with an A-. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
