In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Very few facilities performed this well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by these statistics.
