One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this facility an A+.

This place provides an incredible 6.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing high levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed.

An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines.

This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
