Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem.

In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.
