Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. 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.

This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy.
