Nursing Homes Massachusetts Framingham Oak Knoll Healthcare Center

Oak Knoll Healthcare Center has been cited for a total of 71 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 Oak Knoll Healthcare Center.

Since we bagan longer term (multi year tracking, numbers will naturally be higher than 3 (or so surverys).
There are 367 nursing homes in Massachusetts with a total of 22,497 deficiencies resulting in an average of 61.30 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.
