To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its inspection grade. This score is far better than its overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
