    My Dad passed away on October 27. My greatest regret is I trusted these people with his care. They were aware that I lived 5 hours away and needed their help. I took him out of the facility early and about a week later he passed away at my home surrounded by his family. If you cannot stay with your family member at this facility, Do Not leave them. They will not receive quality care. I have requested all records by registered mail. I have where they signed for it but I have not received any communication from them. Not surprised! My Dad was there for rehabilitation so that he could move to SC and assist with his care. There was no rehab and he died in the loving care of hospice. Thank goodness he died with our care and not alone in that place.

    My mother was admitted late on 12/19/12 her first full day was the 20th. Not pleased is a woeful understatement. 3 hours after staff was informed they finally showed up to change and clean her after an incontinent episode (pee). She is only there short term for recovery after broken hip surgery. She is 85 years old and an extreme fall risk. Knowing this we had to insist on a bed monitor. They also were aware of her advanced Alzheimer's prior to her transfer. When pressed for an accounting of her nutritional intake for the day, none was found on her chart. If you have a loved one at one of these facilities visit them often and at different times. Make these facilities responsible for their poor care.

    The building looks dilapidated, filthy, and very short staffed. The staff is very nice but cannot provide proper care for it's residents. Possibly good care for those looking for hospice like situations but not for those looking for extended care .

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
