Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This grade is far better than the facility's overall grade. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
