Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health.
