This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This facility also received high marks in the category of long-term care, with a very impressive grade of A- in this area. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes.
