    I used to work here before I got fired for speaking up on the mistreatment Of staff and patients. charge nurses were racist and non attentive to their job. I witnessed patients get brutally beaten daily! Patients were covered in ants and roaches and nobody ever did anything when notified. theres something's tricky going on because I have absolutely NO IDEA how the state overlooked such conditions when they are crystal clear soon as you walk in the facility.

    I went to visit my brother at the facility and the whole while I was there, no one came in to check on him at all. The employees are not doing there jobs. The restroom was in needing of a good scrub down, the toilet seat had urine all over it, there was a portable toilet on wheels that had feces left on it from the last person that used it. My brother's knees are almost the size of melons and the skin on both feet are cracking and shiny since no one is actually doing their jobs. The employees were either talking up a storm with each other or on cell phones. Some of the patients have TVs while others do not even though all patients should have one for each other. My understanding is that they have internet, but only the employees are able to use it and as for the patients, who cares (Employees). I forget what is wrong with my brother's stomach, but he was given onion soup one day knowing that he could not eat it. I needing dentures so that he could have teeth, they gave him glasses that were so thick that I do not remember that last time I saw anyone wearing thick glasses. Why are the employees supposedly working at the facility from having the training, but are not trying to do their job that they are getting paid to do? FREE money all around while no work to do I guess. Almost four hours and no one came in to check on my brother even once. Even the social worker will not do her job, sad. I am reading all the reviews and I just don't get it, praise is being given, but its not the truth.

    How this place is still in business, in the business of caring for the sick and elderly, no less, is beyond me.

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
