While this place's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
