Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety.
