    todays review..6/10/2018 1:00 pm. room 421A..upon entering I get evil eyes from the nurses,I said hello to one 3 times(3rd time loud)before she acknowledged me,I wanted to take my mom outside but that would have required help,so because of the greeting I got coming in I didn't ask,I didn't want to tick anyone off,so I visited with her in the hall,in everyones way.

    Although most of the nurses are very helpful, very rarely are they prompt with helping a patient with a urostomy. There have been several times when my bag has needed to be changed, and I have had to wait 4 or 5 hours to get it changed. Anyone who has a urostomy or knows someone who has one that urine on the skin is like battery acid to a car battery. It eats at Askin and can cause severe infection. When it comes to prompt service, I give Brookshire Nursing Home an "F" Also the miscommunication between the CNA's is very poor. First shift can take a patient out of bed right before shift change, and five minutes later another CNA from another shift is bringing the patient back to pit her back to bed.

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
