It is generally in your best interest to avoid facilities that have too many deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 10 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Additionally, we gave this facility an F in the area of long-term care. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe.

In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.64499 percent of its patients, which is a very solid figure.
