These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few relatively minor dings aren't something to panic about.

This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is higher than most nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital.
