It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
