Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
