On top of being an elite facility overall, this facility also performed well in our inspections category, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes fared this well in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem 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.

It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
