Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Not many facilities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
