Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which is much better than its overall grade. Our inspection scores are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities.
