Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of A. This is a notably better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
