Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
