In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility also earned an A+ inspection grade. This score is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can offer a nursing home. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor dings aren't the end of the world.
