The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A-. Inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
