severity score of D through F means no actual harm was done, but there is the potential for minimal harm that does not impose immediate jeopardy, according to Medicare. A severity score of G means actual harm had occurred but it does not pose an immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety, and the deficiency was determined isolated.
