Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is it earned an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this very important category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
