You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
