About State Inspection Deficiencies

Nursing Homes that are Medicare and/or Medicaid certified are licensed by the state and are required to comply with rigid standards enforced by regular facility inspections and extensive evaluations.

The state inspection deficiencies provided here are accounts reported by state inspectors of every discrepancy found where the home failed to meet the minimum standards set forth by state and federal regulations. If a home does not show any deficiencies, it has met the minimum standards required.

Please note: Findings in these inspections do not present a complete picture of the quality of care provided. Information in this database should be interpreted carefully and used in conjunction with other sources, as well as a visit to the nursing home.


Deficiency Ratings

Our nursing home inspector tool compares the severity of deficiences rather than the number of deficiences. We calculate the severity of each deficiency using the formula:

Severity Rating = Scope + Level of Harm.

Deficiency Rating= Sum of ALL Severity Ratings

Severity Scope Level of Harm
2 1-Isolated 1-Potential for minimal harm
3 2-Pattern 1-Potential for minimal harm
3 1-Isolated 2-Minimal harm or potential for actual harm
4 3-Widespread 1-Potential for minimal harm
4 2-Pattern 2-Minimal harm or potential for actual harm
4 1-Isolated 3-Actual harm
5 3-Widespread 2-Minimal harm or potential for actual harm
5 2-Pattern 3-Actual harm
5 1-Isolated 4-Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety
6 3-Widespread 3-Actual harm
