This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade.

Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services.

This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.
