Registered Staff Hours
In addition to performing well overall, this facility also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.41379 percent of its patients, which is far higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.
