Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale.

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade.
