One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it received an A+ inspection grade. This is as good as it gets in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
