Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
