We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
