We gave it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
