Places with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
