    I recently switched to this vet and am so much happier with them than my previous one. I've brought my chihuahua in three times and am pleased with how friendly, helpful and engaged each doctor, tech and staff member has been. They take time to listen, ask questions and explain, and they give recommendations without being pushy. My overall experience has been great, and I'm so glad to have found such a great vet so close to my home.

    I would not recommend this facility! Administration does not address your concerns, belongings go missing, food is terrible and if a resident gets sick, doctor rolls through like cattle call. It is old and dirty. My mother got pneumonia, was not provided for properly, nearly a month went by, finally sent to hospital because she passed out and fell and died two days later. Informed the facility she passed away and adminstration gathered her belongings, threw everything on a table and said come and get them. Horrible experience. Do not place your loved one in this facility.

    Fairly nice place. My mother has done much better here than other places.

    From top to bottom, Maintenance to Nursing, Five Star all the way! Yes, the building is old, but the care makes up for every thing else. I have never seen such an amazing group of staff that is truly like family, and it shows in the care. With out a great team, you could not have the care that the residents and patients receive at Cherrelyn. You know that old saying, "Its whats on the inside that counts, not the outside"! Don't rate your care from the looks of a building. The staff are top rate, as well as the food, activities, and Physical Therapy!

    I worked at this place for a few months. Before that, I have worked at different other places. I now work at a hospital & another nursing home. I don't recommend anyone to work at this place. The staff is very very mean to new employees. Specially, some of the people who have worked there for 10 or 15 years. The administration is not any better. The assistant DON is not an honest person, she doesn't keep her word. I talked to her about my concern, but she didnt care. She is not the right person for the job. Over all, it's just not a good environment to work. The administrator is a very great lady. She is the right person for the job. But you see her once when you get hired, and you will not see her again. It was nice if she could meet with staff once in a while & ask people about how/what they feel about their job. Specially for new staff. I only wrote about how it feels like working there, not about the patient care. May be i will apdate my post another time & write about the patient care another time, so that people could have a better understanding of the place. But if a nursing home is not a good place to work, then it's also not a good place to live. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice place for a loved one.

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
