Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for.

This grade is often a useful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. It looks like this place was subpar in several staffing metrics we focus on.
