Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's overall score was propped up by the fact that it has received favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that category, with a B+. This is a much better grade than the nursing home's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Our short-term care scores are meaningful for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing.

On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists.
