Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. This score is better than this place's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality metrics.
