    My 80-year-old husband, Ron, recently spent six weeks in the Palomar Heights Post-Acute Care Center after breaking his hip and elbow. We found it to be a great place for his recovery and rehabilitation. The workers were caring and professional. They created a pleasant atmosphere with fresh air and sunlight as well as a view of the nearby hills or of their garden in front. Privacy curtains were available around each bed. Everyone had his own flat-screen cable television and remote control. It was kept very clean. The food was dependable and tasted good; they provided snacks twice a day. The dietitian even interviewed my husband to determine his preferences. Visitors were welcomed and chairs provided as needed. Visitors can also take advantage of its location near the shopping centers and food establishments of East Valley Parkway. Enrichment activities were available to the patients, offered in the "senior care" side of the facility. When x-rays were done prior to a trip to the doctor, the service was provided at bedside. The gym was large and well equipped with occupational and physical therapists that took care to further his progress during sessions each weekday. He also had the freedom to move along the supervised hallways outside his room to practice his skills as he recovered. Rose, the head nurse, worked with us to allow his departure when he felt ready. We even were allowed to use a separate room for signing papers with a notary present. Ron says he can't think of any improvements needed at Palomar Heights. In fact, it was better than he had expected.

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
