    My wife is in McGuffey's, Every day, i make the 60mi round trip to bring her food. why? because the food there is so bad i would not use it for hog slop. i have eaten it 3 times and twice it made me sick, the smell turns one's stomach. One day, she had tomato soup hat looked like a dirty red brick. I poured it down the sink and it stopped up the drain. i don't expect a kings feast, but i do expect something better than hog slop. The staff don't seem to care what they serve. Every day, a menu is filled out, but the served food seldom reflects the selection. My wife is served chocolate ice cream, even though she indicates that she is lactose intolerant.. Their version of the simple grilled cheese sandwich is a slice of bread, a slice of cheese, a slice of sandwich meat, and another slice of bread" nothing more, not grilled or toasted. the staff doing the fixing or ordering, not if its made in house or not, should have to taste it.

    This is the third time my mom has been in rehab. She liked this place well enough the first two times that she wanted to return after having complications from back surgery. The third time was not a charm by any stretch of the imagination. She was basically ignored. Some days she didn't get her medication on time. She was to get antibiotics 4 times a day and some days didn't get it until the night shift came in. Her pain medication was sometimes not given until over two hours after the time they were requested. She was only asked twice if she wanted a bath. On one day she asked for a bath and was told there was no one to help her get it. Some of the time aids filled out her menu choosing foods she didn't like and could not eat. She enjoyed her therapy and had no complaints with that department at all. All in all we are appalled at the change in actions of the services of this place.

    Problems w/ laundry &vth3 Problems w/ laundry & theft. Activity Dept was 5 star's EASY until recently. Meals are average but redundant. CNA's talk dwn to residents. Awesome Administrator/Nursing Staff. Some rooms too small to turn @ in. Best resident Dr. in the state (Dr.Kenny Smith) IMO. There are 5halls, 1 being Rehabilitation & 1 being a lockdown unit (Memory Lane). There are 3 designated smoking areas, 1of which is scheduled & supervised smoking (Memory Lane). There is an on-site resident bank. Visitors may come & go as they wish. Residents may also be signed out w/family &/or Sponsor's. There is also a Gazebo in the courtyard for your enjoyment. Church services are available as well as daily devotion (Mon-Fri). It's Wi-Fi accessible/basic cable for $10 dollar's Monthly taken out of your SSI pay. I've been a resident for 5yrs. Reason for my leaving is laundry/theft & cut in activity Dept. It isn't the worst but by far not the best (as previous years). It will be sadly missed however.

Compare The Number of Problems

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
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
