Registered Staff Hours
Although this place's overall score was not a highlight, it received a slightly more favorable grade in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B- for this area, which is a decent score. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
