It should be noted that this nursing home's inspection grade outpaced its overall grade. We awarded it a B+ for its inspections rating, which is a very solid score. Our inspection grades are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital.
