Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

This means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy.

On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

This nursing home provided the vaccine to 77.07865 percent of its patients. This is slightly less than we anticipated but still a decent percentage.
