Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A-. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection ratings are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.
