    I chose this place for my mom because the pictures looked pretty and cleaned, plus the offered rehabilitation. My lack of knowledge caused my mother a lot of neglect and humiliation. There is a ton I could say but I'm going to narrow it down to four: 1. My mom called me one day around 730pm and stated she had been calling for someone to come change her diaper since 3:30pm. 2. My mom suffers from CHF and needs a low sodium diet. Whatever she would chose from her REGULAR menu to eat, the kitchen would send her whatever they wanted her to have. Usually something processed and high in salt. Now my mother retains fluid very badly. 3. After seeing other areas of neglect, I researched better facilities and put in to transfer my mother. I put the request in, in person on a Thursday morning. I came back Friday afternoon and it had not been send. I checked on it Monday evening it was finally sent. Then there was the transportation issue, the family pays, WHAT no one told me. Well Magnolia social services didn't help me, nor did they offer guidance or contact numbers. So I called the transfer NEW facility and admissions said "we will take care of this for you and we will get you the lowest price possible, we will try to make this transition smooth". About 15 Min later I was set with transportation. 4. They are always short staff, once my mother had a very bad case of heart burn. She pushed her button for help, a hour later mom called me and I called the nurses desk. The supervisor came, took her BP, said she will be back with some tums. An hour later Mom pushed the button. No one came. She called me, I called the desk, the new shift nurse said the supervisor WENT HOME! So I got dress and went to the store and drove from the South side to Gardendale to take mom some heartburn meds. When you enter Magnolia Ridge the smell of OLD urine and bowels will meet you at the door and it lingers in the hallways. Whenever I leave the building that smell is stuck to my clothes. If you put your love ones in this facility "YOU BETTA CHECK ON THEM DAILY"

    Horrible facility......my mother nearly died from lack of medical care from the nursing staff. I filed a report with the state and filed a police report naming two nurses from that facility. If you love your family member- do not put them there.

    Horrible place! The night shift more than the day shift, my mother in law is staying due to a broke hip, I went to ask some of the staff members a question and it was like it pained them to get off their cellphones and give me eye contact and smile, one never even turned around and keep her back toward me. It breaks my heart to see how badly the residents are treated and how run down and disgusting the facility is.

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
