    My mother stayed there several years ago and they took very good care of her. Now I am looking for my Dad.

    Please, please do not trust these people to take care of your family, The nurses and staff obviously do not care about these residents!! As you walk down the hallway you can clearly smell feces, and urine, the residents look like they all need a good, long shower and the whole place is extremely outdated and so far from liveable! Every single person that works here should be ashamed if they have not brought the living condition concerns up to the state!! Someone needs to bring it to their attention! Disgraceful place for those sweet residents to put up with.

    **** ???Would have gave it 0 stars but you have to at least pick 1 ???.**** I agree with every statement I've read on this facility. I urge anyone who kept records of all the things that has happened (or not happened in a lot of cases!!) to contact legal advise because the more people who come forward WE CAN MAKE THIS FACILITY BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR ITS POOR CARE!!!! Because 1 nurse to 20 patients is just too much!!!! How can our loved ones receive the proper care that they rightfully deserve with those kind of ratios????!!!! This facility needs to stop worrying about lining their pockets and put out some money to hire enough QUALITY CAREGIVERS to give QUALITY CARE TO THEIR PATIENTS!!!! JUST SAYING ??????

    This place is one of the most unorganized, unprofessional, and secretly racist places that I have ever seen. The nurses sit at the desk not helping to answer call lights or helping to feed patients while the CNA works all day. DO NOT bring your loved ones here the patient load that each CNA has is close to 20 patients each and they are always short of staff due to the slave drive mentally that they have towards their CNAs and the way upper management treats them. How can one person care for that many patients properly? The upper management stays in their offices most times with signs on their doors about not being disturbed or on conference calls or nurse is out. They have no shame in the lies they tell to families about how great the care they will receive or all the extra things that they will provide as long as they can get your money. No matter what promises this place makes please DO NOT believe them. There is never enough of any supply that your loved one may need and they purchase the cheapest stuff that they can find and the food that they feed the residents here is one big minus. OVERALL DO NOT PUT YOUR LOVED ONE HERE OR WORK HERE YOU WILL DEEPLY REGRET IT.

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
