Historical

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is it earned an impressive grade in inspections. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In this category, we gave this nursing home an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Historical

Turning to our final category, this nursing home received a strong long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a B+ in that area, completing one of our finer report cards. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis.
