Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it earned a very impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections is its best category. In that category, we gave this facility an A. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.
