One of the reasons this place turned out to be a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ in our inspections category. This is just about as good as it gets in this very important area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. It doesn't look like we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Overall this looks like a good option for long-term care.
