This nursing home's third best category grade came in the area of government inspections. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Sadly, this nursing home was assessed a category L deficiency, which is not what we expected based on its inspection grade. This category of deficiency indicates CMS uncovered a widespread deficiency putting resident health or safety in imminent danger. Even a single serious deficiency of this nature should be taken seriously. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.
