    If you can get a room on the newer side (c/d) ,because the old rooms suck, they are nice.But not enough private rooms. It appears that there might of been an individual or two in upper management who was unkind , but the rest of the staff was outstanding . The RN's , CNA's , OT's and PT's are for the most part GREAT . They are dedicated to your health and well being . I hope some day this place will consider having a union .

    The staff were courteous and pleasant. The respiratory therapist carrying for my friend was also very polite and courteous. The facilities were clean and well kept if a bit dated. Overall I thought this was a very nice facility. It seems my friend is getting very good care. He certainly seemed happy with how he has been treated him so far. Thank you for taking such good care of him!

    If I could put this star in the negative I would. My mother want in for rehabilitation after losing her leg. The next day she's in a comma. She managed her sugar at home just fine. She fell and her kidneys stopped working from being on the floor so long, that's why she lost her leg . She was strong willed and stubborn. Now she's a vegetable . Someone messed up didn't pay attention to her chart . Now I don't have a mom .

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
