4 star rating

1 star rating

Primary concerns: There is not a single area of assessment in which this facility received an admirable rating. Its quality measures are severely lacking and it is plagued by a poor health inspection history. Understaffing may be the underlying cause of many of its issues and it is not uncommon for corporations to keep staff at inadequate levels to reduce overhead. Unfortunately, this also reduces the quality of care provided.
