Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than its overall score. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily something to panic about.
