On top of being a strong nursing home overall, this place especially excelled in our inspections category, where it received an A. Few facilities fared better in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's above average category grades came in the area of long-term care. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a score of B+. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care.

This facility gave the vaccine to 86.09271 percent of its residents, which is a few points below what we anticipated. Fortunately, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital.
