The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. Its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This facility vaccinated 91.095894 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure.

In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities.
