In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also received first-rate government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that category, with an A-. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B+. There are several criteria included in this area. Many of the criteria are tied to nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This facility provided the vaccine to 91.97397 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we expected but still a decent figure. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
