Historical

On top of earning a strong overall grade, this facility also received excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our highest grades in that category, with an A. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
