    The staff was wonderful and always ready to help, not only my mother in law, but the family as well! When my mother in law was in her last moments of life, she was wonderfully taken care of until her final moment and afterwards. As for myself and my family we were allowed to be by her side 24/7! The staff was amazing to us and even made sure that we were not forgetting to eat and even take breaks to get some fresh air and sun while they were watching over her like a hawk. Sometimes they even brought food in for us! I can't say enough good things about our experience with this facility during our very difficult time! Even during our difficult times the staff always made sure that we were actually happy! Whether it be through the care she was receiving or the smiles and interaction with the staff, we always felt comfort, happiness and peace within the facility!

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
