We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies.

Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
