Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.
