    A Nursing Home Poem A nursing home to me seems so sad, But I needed a place to put my dad. He had a massive pulmonary embolism the hospital said, And he was very lucky that he wasn't dead. Out of the hospital, he couldn't come home, Not until he could walk on his own. So I swallowed my tears, and here he would stay, Where he could get physical therapy each day. Everyone one was nice, the staff was the best, But I must be honest, one minor flaw did exist It isn't the home or anything they lack, It's their location which is near a train track When the train blows its horn conversation will halt, But no one can say it's the nursing homes fault. So if you like trains, as so many do, Well my friend this place is perfect for you. To the staff I say thanks for helping my dad, Your care for him was among the best he has had. So if ever you find that more help you need, I recommend here, it's a good place indeed. June 2016

    I received good care. One nurse named Pat got me through a couple days when I was really sick. There were many activities and the food was good for a hospital.

    My grandmother has stayed here twice. I can't stand this place & i have no idea how they are still in business. The first time, a few years ago & the care wasnt great but also not horrible. I felt like she was treated as a number rather than a human. The 2nd stay was through respit care to give myself a break for a few days & go on vacation with my kids. Well, the first afternoon she was there, it was reported that she kept getting out of bed. I sent an alarm to be used, but it wasn't being used. The next morning I received a phone call saying that my grandma had rolled out of bed & was found in the middle of the night on her floor. She was in pain, but they said there were no major injuries. She already wears a neck brace due to multiple neck fractures from falling out of bed months ago. They told me they were ordering a floor alarm for her. I demanded that she be put in a chair with an alarm & be constantly visible until the new alarms were in place. That did not happen. Also, they did not give her the nightly sleeping pill that she is used to having. Then i found out that she was only being given drinks at meal times. She has had kidney surgery & has chronic kidney disease. She needs to stay hydrated.I stressed that she needs fluids. Nothing changed. I said to put her in the common room & not leave her in bed all day. That didn't happen. One excuse was that they didn't have a wheel chair or walker for her. Then on Day 4 they taped off a wall in her room that was being painted. My grandma & another lady were left to lay in their beds while the paint fumes filled their room. My grandmother is mute & cannot walk without assistance. The day after she came home, we found major bruising on my grandma. Her left side has a bruise on her eye, elbow, hand & a huge bruise on her rib area.

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
