You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
