    My father recently passed at westchester's rehab center from his ongoing battle of kidney disease and other illnesses. The nurses there are very nice especially Teresa, Regina, and Maria these three beautiful souls deserve to be recognized. They helped make my fathers stay at the care facility very comfortable with the care they provided for him, he loved them! They always fed him for me on the days that I was running late for his feedings. These women are experts in providing care for our loved ones, they are angels from above. ?????

    Mother moved into Westchester 4 years ago. Facilities are excellent. Staff is friendly and there to assist in any way. All levels of care are offered. Their private bus takes residents shopping, banks, restaurants, etc. Campus is kept clean. All types of activities offered, even students from ASU come to entertain. Worth the visit, and stay!

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
