Facilities that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients.

Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
