Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than its overall rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Unfortunately, this score hurt the nursing home's overall profile a bit.

This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.58678 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital.
