One of the many reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this very important category. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. 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 tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
