Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home earned a decent overall score, its inspections score is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it earned one of our better scores in that category with a B+. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.
