Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second best area is its long-term care grade, where it received a grade of C. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of care.
