In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale.
