Lenox Care Center has been cited for a total of 42 deficiencies since we began saving each survey. We believe it is worthwhile to show how things are and were. Some improve and some get worse. Rather than a snapshot, we take s longer view than most. A longer view, we believe, paints a better and more worthwhile picture. We start from them most recent and go back as you scroll down.

Tip: Surveys happen throughout the year and you may want to check with the location or here to see if more recent data is available for Lenox Care Center.

Since we bagan longer term (multi year tracking, numbers will naturally be higher than 3 (or so surverys).
There are 415 nursing homes in Iowa with a total of 17,154 deficiencies resulting in an average of 41.33 deficiencies per nursing home.



The following table describes how deficiencies are scored. An easy way to remember the severity of a deficiency's scope is that the further along in the alphabet (A through L) the scope value is, the more severe the deficiency is.
Additionally, A through F means no actual harm has happened.
