We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
