Places with better grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
