One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies.

Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This was one of the higher totals we found. In addition, a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. In addition to offering high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at.
