In that category, we awarded this facility an A+. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
