  • ★★★★★ in the last week

    Chris Seitz P.A. from Sierra View Medical Center was very professional and the excellent staff their was able to quickly supply my own Physician Dr. Mating with all the needed information that Dr. Mating needed to continue my treatment. Chris Seitz P.A provided thorough information to not only my physician but also to me as the patient. I have seen the E.R. Techs and nurses provide some of the most optimal care. They care about their patients. Keep up the great work.

    WORST "HOSPITAL" EVER! My mother has been constantly in and out and they can't seem to find the problem, they don't even care to prescribe pain medicine or refer her to any specialist. How is it possible to go into the emergency room and be there waiting to be seen for over 5 hours just to be told to go back home?! This place is ridiculous I pray it closes soon!! Bunch of fkn idiots! Please people go some where else,, some where else where you might have a better chance at getting better!

    Not a hospital I would take my kids or family to. I'd rather drive 30min away for good care.

    If there were a way to give it negative stars, I would. If I were in need of dire medical attention and had the choice between being taken here or just left to die, I would choose being left to die. I feel I would have a greater likelihood of survival being left to die than being taken there for treatment. I wouldn't put it past this facility to have someone brought in for a broken leg and they end up removing both kidneys and sending the patient home with no kidneys and an untreated broken leg. This may sound ridiculous and far fetched, but ask yourself, "is it worth the risk to go here or is there anyway I can get to another hospital?"

    Some of the nurses are nice. Other than that everyone that I personally know who has gone here, had a bad experience. It seems like they just don't care no matter the situation the patient is in. Do not take your loved one here, do them a favor and go somewhere else.

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
