    My mother in law recently became a patient at this facility. From day one everyone treated her and us very well. As busy as Friday nights are, they were all smiling and happy to help her and take care of her! As a nurse myself, I understand the demands of the job! And while not one place is 100% perfect, this center is def 100% great and strives for the best. It shows in the team work that the CNAs do and the nurses that over look and treat the patients. We are very glad to have picked Lake Balboa and love treating the staff with goodies and desserts! Keep up the good work. Thank you.

    My mother is currently a patient at this facility and she receives excellent care. The therapists, nurses, and CNAs are all very attentive and caring. Freddy in the Activity Room is a hoot, very upbeat and knows everyone's names. The Dietician spoke with me about moms diet, she is diabetic, and she receives healthy meals with fresh vegetables and not too many carbs. I would highly recommend Lake Balboa for your loved ones recuperation.

    I work there for a couple of days about a month ago. Still till this very day they haven't paid the place is unreachable. They don't answer there phones the staff is very rude. The time being there was not plencent the staff was not friendly to the patients. Most of them look like they over there job being they are being paid lower than the minimum wage. I had to constantly ask them what was my pay and they keep brushing me off. I had to call them everyday to remind them about my paycheck took then two weeks to find my paper work. Def. reported them to labor and commission.

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
