This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection grades are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few relatively minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.

This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, this nursing home was relatively weak in two of the major areas we look at, with below average scores for minimizing its patients' major falls and pressure ulcers.

In fact, it had only 0.33 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
