    My mom caught an infection called C. Diff (Clostridium difficile), which caused her to bleed internally, which then got into her blood... which them caused her to die. If this facility had noticed blood in her stool, they might have been able to call my mom's useless doctor Chang to get permission to call an ambulance early enough. Keep your loved ones away from this place. Nurses are constantly socializing, the orderlies hate their job and will put off changing patient's undergarments for as long as they can and the place seems understaffed while they try to cram 3 patients to room. Update: My mother passed away... Why the hell do I want to meet with you or your auto responder. I have a suspicion that most the positive reviews are from people that know the owners or are related to employees.

    "This place is inhumane." An insult to other health providers and facilities who do care about their patients. it should be shut down immediately. if you don't believe me, do your research and you'll see that they've been cited numerous times for a variety of violations in recent years. by my relative's experience it seems that they have not cleaned up their act. they should be ashamed of themselves!!!! STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE! Who should I contact to discuss the matters? Name, position and phone of the contact.

    Looks like they drug all of their patients so they won't have to deal with them. My patient roommate is a poor old lady, they don't take the time to cover her, so she's the first thing you see when u walk in and is very exposed, just wearing a diaper . Senior patients would be crying for help in station public areas and no one would be responding. They just simply ignore them. This place must be hell for everyone here. The staff doesn't seem to care. There is no compassion and professionalism. This place is AWFUL they have VERY rude staff not helpful at all! HORRIBLE! I wouldn't even leave my dog there! This place is beyond awful. This place needs to be shut down. It is the biggest joke. I don't know how they get away with DPHS (Dept. Public Health Services) regulations !!!??? Numerous calls, complaints and reports are being ignored and unresponded by government entities .... GO FIGURE !!!!

    My personal opinion.....I thank God for this place and all the loving hard working staff that work here. In my opinion they all deserve raises. They go out of their way to make sure your comfortable and well taken care of! I'm 53 years old and had never been in any kind of hospital or any kind if facility like this before. I had a battle with cancer and had surgery to have it removed. After staying 2 weeks in Huntington hospital in Pasaedena I was moved to this place. At first I was upset, scared, just didn't know what to expect, without giving the place a chance I called my family and told them I wanted to be moved immediately, I could find everything wrong with this place within minutes. Well I got some sleep and woke up to the most heat-warming, caring, attentive people I've ever met in my entire life... I judged a book by its cover...but once I opened that book, I felt the love on the very first page!!! Great Job and God Bless all the Staff at San Fernando post acute hospital!!!

    I have to admit, when my daughter first got transferred here, I judge the book by its cover and also from my past experience with Subacute facilities. Turns out they they took excellent care of my daughter. From the nurses to the CNA's to the excellent work and compassionate social worker Marlon Balabbo that went out of his way to help, in the care of my daughter!! A big thank u to u all

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
