While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our best scores.

It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have too many deficiencies. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
