    There are times the food is fresh and tasty, but this time the food was fair. The broccoli over cooked, not the fancy mushrooms i like and I'm not crazy about the type of rice used. All very ordinary. i was underwhelmed.

    Very nice facilty and staff. As an ex-employee here on the skilled floor, it is a decent place for your loved one. They have a lovely garden with a small pool area and an amazing view of pikes peak from the front door. They just remodeled their main shower room and it is very pretty. My only complaint is the kitchen needs a new manager, but the food is decent most days. I will miss working here and cherish the memories

    Horrible horrible skilled nursing facility. They neglected getting my grandfather the treatment he needed. We had to take him to the ER our self to get proper care. He was in the hospital for over a month before going to rehab to get back to where he was before going to the Medalion. I cannot speak on how the assisted living side is. If you are looking at the skilled nursing side look elsewhere.

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
