    Proximity to Cedars Sinai hospital is it's only strong point. I'm only 59 and was sent there for rehab after an extended hospital stay. It's really a nursing home. I ended up back at Cedars after 7 days there and was able to come home at that time. I'm an RN and was a director of nursing in a SNF years ago. The nurses (LVNs) didn't even know what the medications were they were giving me. I saw too much to ever recommend this place. How they ever got a 5 star rating from Medicare is beyond me. Then, when I had a family member pick up my belongings, there were a lot of missing items. Im.still working on getting answer to who the thief was. The food was pretty decent, better than Cedars. Extra star for that.

    Worst experience ever. I took my grandmother to this facility to recover from a stroke. Every time I would go see her I had to find the nurse to suction out secretions, as my grandmother was unable to swallow or move. Also, nurse had not noticed her Foley catheter had blood in it due to irritation until I brought it to his attention keep in mind this place is a nursing home it's rehab with licensed nurses and my grandmother was not receiving proper care. A week went by my grandmother now had fever, nurses reponse to this was; we will contact the doctor, hours went by still nothing no doctor no nothing. Finally doctor ordered antibiotics the same night my grandma passed away. Due to lack of care. Why did she pass ?? "Natural causes" It has been one month 2 canceled funeral ceremonies .. why? Because their doctor will not sign death certificate. I do not recommend this place to any one. I had to be on top of them to provide care and this is only because I also work at a facility. Not happy. Please if you leave your loved one here or anywhere else make sure they provide the care they need.

    The so called Representative Tally is the most unprofessional, uneducated, rude person who should NOT be working in the health care field. Based on my interactions with her alone, I would NEVER trust a loved one at this facility.

    As of January, of 2015, it's number three on the Medicare web sight behind the two CountryVillas. The interior has been improved over the years, but you have to stay on the staff. Their proximity to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is their strong suit.

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
