This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe.

We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it was given a dominant short-term care grade. In fact, short-term care turned out to be its second highest category score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a score of A-. Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home.

This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility.
