The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports.
