Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall score was not a highlight, it actually received a very good grade in the category of inspections. We gave it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines.

While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an B-. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, nursing scores also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
