Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is more respectable than the facility's overall grade. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect.
