Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving an elite overall score, this nursing home earned an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a facility. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale.
