These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home.

We would also like to draw your attention to this nursing home's strong inspection grade. This facility earned a B in this category, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
