    I had a family member tgete, seemed to have caring staff.

  • ★★★★★ a year ago

    I am grateful to the staff of the Aldersons for making me feel safe and clean and cared for. I want to share the news with others who may have doubts. I am a 57 year old woman and spent time at the Aldersons on two separate occasions. I had two total hip replacements and my recovery was made so easier thanks to this facility. The entire hospital is kept immaculately clean. There is none of that "old folks home odor". Meals are good and nutritious and always on time. Laundry is done and delivered to the room. Visitors are made to feel comfortable in the recreation room where we played games or I played the upright piano. The nurses really do give personalized attention to each patient. In fact, once while outside the building doing my Physical Therapy, the head nurse hunted me down to give me my pain medication! Talk about personalized care. The Physical and Occupational Therapy staff are dedicated and experienced therapists who have incredible patience and often a great sense of humor. My greatest debt of gratitude, however, goes to the CNA staff. The CNA's are always there when I needed them, ready with a smile and gentle care, to bring me ice, or a warm towel, or help with in the shower, or change my surgical dressing. I often hear people afraid of skilled nursing facilities and see them as depressing or creepy, as if old age or infirmity is contagious. I found the place to be joyful and good. When I get old and senile, I WANT my kids to put me in the Aldersons, because I know I will be safe and cared for. Grateful Patient, Margaret Sloss

    Everything about that place is horrible. The staff, food, looks of the place. From what I saw, it was bad

    My mother is staying there for a month for physical therapy, and the staff there are absolutely wonderful to her. She is getting excellent care, and is getting better by the day. Great job everyone, and a million thanks from me.

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.
