Registered Staff Hours
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is it received a very impressive grade in inspections. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In this area, we gave this nursing home an A. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
