    My family member was admitted to Kennedy earlier this year and I was pleasantly surprised. I do read reviews and I saw most reviews were not recent. According to staff there have been many changes to the facility in the last 2 years. My grandmother was treated like family at Kennedy and if someone asked me to give my honest review I would recommend the facility to anyone who wants their family to be cared for by wonderful staff.

    Although the care center seemed very clean, I was unhappy with our experience there. First, the facility tried to tell me they couldn't return one of the medications that they asked me to bring in with my mother-in-law. When I told them I am an attorney, suddenly the medication could be returned. Second, when I counted the number of Lorazepam tablets I took in -- the medication they didn't want to return to me -- I found the count to be 10 short. I asked the facility what medications my MIL had been given and was told she wasn't given any. Third, my MIL went to the facility with a large washable waterproof bed pad. It had her name and phone number prominently written on it in 1.5-inch high black letters. That has disappeared, too, and still hasn't been found 3 days later. Fourth, when I called to ask where the pad was, I was told that according to her inventory of personal effects, all she came in with was a pair of yellow slippers. Wrong -- she took no slippers with her at all but did have tee shirts, pajama bottoms, and a pair of padded heel boots, which were brought in in a large purple tote bag. The slippers which were supposedly hers were not returned, although everything else came back except the mattress pad and the drugs, even though according to their inventory NOTHING should have been returned with her. And the inventory isn't even dated correctly but says 15.02.15. Well, as far as I know, there is no month 15. I can't comment on the care my MIL received as she was only there for 5 days, but if you have to take a family member to this care center, don't leave anything you'd like to have returned, and be sure to have all medications inventoried in your presence.

    My Mom likes the folks there. She appears to be treated well. All the people I met were very kind.

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
