You should especially avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L.

A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
