  • ★★★★★ a month ago

    The nursing staff are caring and compassionate, cheery and nice, the physical therapy is extremely good, and the administrative staff were very helpful in helping complete and submit paperwork in a timely manner when we needed things to move quickly. Its hard to call any rehab center perfect especially in an old building such as this one, but the beds and flooring are clean and well maintained, I watched the cleaning staff and they do a good job although there is a slight smell likely from the old building. Give them a new building and it'd be hard to beat

    This place is HORRIBLE!!!! From the time you walk in the front door without any screening to the time you exit the door it's a complete circus. Patients roaming the halls that look like they are fresh off the street. My family member worked his entire life and has wonderful benefits and this place is an insult. Patients are doubled up in rooms some even fresh on the floor with a mattress equivalent to cardboard while empty rooms just sit there. What sense does this make? The best part is that we were told to take my family members possessions home because sometimes drug users will go in the rooms and steal stuff. Someone needs to get in there and take down the 5 star banners because it's a LIE. So disappointing! Stay away.

    If i could rate this place a zero I would. The health department needs to shut this place down. They don't take care of their patients. The facility is nasty dirty and smells. DO NOT CHOOSE THIS PLACE FOR YOUR LOVED ONES!!!!!

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
