The last category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable government inspection reports in recent years. We gave it an F in this category. This dragged down this facility's overall grade significantly. For places with bad inspection grades, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed significant government fines in recent years in excess of $50,000. This typically signifies that inspectors became fed up after multiple years of failed health inspections.
