The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that category, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below the national average.

This place provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
