Registered Staff Hours

It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
