Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
