    My family and I had a great experience here. They took care of my dad and truly cared about him. The nursing staff was excellent, they knew me by name and cared about how I was doing too. The residents are also great, they are all so kind. I would highly recommend this place to bring your loved one.

    Facility has greatly improved regarding staffing and quality care. Amazing administrator who is always willing to go the extra mile for his residents. Director of Nursing is wonderful and the new facility Physician and his team of Nurse practioners are a cut above the rest!

    DO NOT SEND YOYR LOVE ONES TO THIS DUMP! UNPROFESSIONAL, UNCARING, NON RESPONSIVE. CAN'T PROVE EDERLY ABUSE BUT I KNOW THEY DID NOT TREAT MY MOM AND OTHERS WITH THE BEST CARE. RANDOLF DOES NOTHING BUT COVER UP LIES AND DEFEND HIS INCOMPETENT STAFF.

    This place is DEPLORABLE and should not be in operation. It's filthy and the staff is highly incompetent. Truly a nightmare!

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

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. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
