This nursing home has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
