One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies.
