Although this nursing home's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
