We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall grade in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A-. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
