    Staff for the most part is helpful. There are a few that could improve their people skills. The building itself is old and showing its age inside the faclity. They are lacking in modern furnishings and need a higher level of cleaning throughout the building. Spider webs in the sunroom windows, saw a roach in my clients room and the windows,walls and seating look dirty, some of it is the aging of the facility the rest is due to not being cleaned thoroughly.

    We currently have a loved one in this facility. And we've just had a loved one pass away that was a resident here. We give the facility and staff a 5 star rating. All of the staff are friendly to us, keep us informed of things and seem to genuinely care about our loved one and his well-being. I can see a big difference in his health (mentally and physically) since he has been in rehab. After the stroke they have worked with him and his speech is better and his mind is better. The nurses and staff are always upbeat, smiling and laughing while we visit. They seem to enjoy their jobs. Cleanliness is a 5 star rating and the hallways are brightly painted and welcoming.

    I have a love one there and feel horrible the way how she is being treated with lack of respect with her appearance. The quality of care with the CNA that works there are terrible! Please do your research and ensure you choose widely.

    Horrible facility! The building is dated and it looks as though nothing has been updated in years. I wouldn't leave a pet here, much less a family member. My family member has gotten bed sores, laundry in their room piled up with the room smelling of urine, no one in the front to monitor people coming and going from the facility. If I could leave a review with no stars that is what it would truly be. With what it costs to stay in a nursing home you would expect so much more and certainly not abuse and neglect. For the Huntsville area I would look at other places. I would not ever recommend Diversicare of Big Springs. My family member lasted less than one year in this facility and died here. Horrible care!

    Diversicare of Big Springs is not the place for your loved ones to spend their recovery time or life period!!!! My father was admitted into the hospital and was eventually transferred to long term care. December 2018 to June 4th 2019 he resided there. In April my father had a surgery and required his bandages to be changed frequently to minimize his risk of infection...THAT DID NOT HAPPEN....THE TECHNICIANS COMPLETELY DROPPED THE BALL IN MY DAD'S CASE.... THEY WOULD IGNORE HIS REQUEST TO THE POINT HE HAD TO GET OUT OF HIS BED, ROLL DOWN THE HALLWAY TO DEMAND SOME TO CHANGE THEM. AS A RESULT OF THEIR NEGLECT, MY DAD NOW HAS A LIFE THREATENING INFECTION (MSRA WHICH IS NOW BEING UPGRADED TO SEPSIS AS I TYPE THIS REVIEW), ACCORDING TO THE DOCTOR, HE IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION, AND WILL BE IN THE HOSPITAL FOR AWHILE AS THEY FIGHT TO KILL THE INFECTION AND KEEP HIM ALIVE. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR LOVED ONES TO LIVE HERE! I AM PURSUING LEGAL LITIGATION AGAINST THIS PLACE. PLEASE DO NOT LET YOUR LOVED ONES LIVE HERE!!!! PRAY FOR MY FATHER PLEASE!!!

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
