    There was a leak in the lobby and the fire alarm happened to go off and usually the first instinct I had was to rush out in case there was a fire I was visiting my grandfather at the time and I tried to walk out of the room but one of your workers said I couldn't leave. So as I wanted I thought what if there was a fire would we be held captive then? This could have been a way more serious happening and people could have died in the mix of it someone could have even phoned the police to complain of being held against their will so I suggest next time people shall not be held against their will and be able to ivacuate as a show of free will. But this isn't the end we saw others coming and leaving while the alarm went off and the worker said it was "matinence" but by the looks of it it was an elderly woman entering what seemed to be an overnight bag. So if you can get back to me about this that would be amazing.

    The facility supports its' mission statement offering Age-Specific Care in short term rehab., acute and sub-acute care, long term care, hospice and respite care...Have experienced care offered at Apple Rehab of Watertown with family and friends as patients/residents..Being a Registered Nurse with 40 years experience, and having worked in nursing homes part time for over 30+ years, my expectations were high but I witnessed all disciplines performing their roles in a holistic & caring way...

    I just completed my internship there. The staff is incredibly caring and everyone holds each other accountable to seeing tasks through. All department heads are engaged and are constantly making improvements to optimize performance for its patients and residents. It was an absolute pleasure to go to work there everyday!!

    I would not recommend starting your career at this facility or even work here. The staff is extremely stuck up they do not train appropriately and are not welcoming of new employees..... Libby who is HR needs an attitude adjustment she is very rude. I would not recommend bringing your family member here either they do not clean them properly and some CNAs leave residents in the lifts while changing them this is not only a safety hazzard but degrading as well.

    I was recently admitted to Apple Rehab in Watertown, and have had nothing but a positive experience here. The nursing staff is very attentive and accommodating on each shift. They are always warm and pleasant throughout every interaction, leaving none of my needs unmet. I have never been in a situation where I needed to rely on anyone; the staff here has made me feel comfortable receiving care, during such a vulnerable time in my life. The rehab department has been patient, kind, and has pushed me to accomplish things I never thought I would be able too. They offered me another chance at walking, when I thought I would never stand on my own two feet again. I cannot say enough good things about the quality of care this department can provide. Meal service is always prompt and leaves nothing to be desired. I have enjoyed the variety of meal choices, and my experience in the stepping stone cafe. It is nice to be able to socialize with other residents during a meal. It gives a more home like feeling. The common areas are inviting and always clean. Many resident enjoy congregating throughout the day in these areas. It has been comforting to see how happy and well cared for other residents are here. I would highly recommend Apple Rehab Watertown for anyone who is in need of short or long term skilled care.

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.
