Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home also received first-rate inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher grades in this area, with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.
