    First of all, Community sold me a "bill of goods" when my husband was in the hospital and we discussed at-home hospice care. They told me that he could have at-home care until he became too sick to handle, despite the fact that their facility only had 9 beds.. They also said that he could be given an IV morphine drip at home. All of this turned out to be a lie. Once my husband was home, their story changed. They said he would have to die at home, and that for many people, this could be "beautiful." Sorry, but not for me. The last day a nurse came to see my husband, once set up at home, was on a Thursday. The following Sunday, his pain started getting very bad, despite being on very strong opioids. I called the hospice for a nurse to come out quickly. Two hours later (with no nurse in sight), my husband needed to use the bathroom. While in the bathroom, he collapsed. I just could not hold on to him sufficiently. I struggled to get him seated on the toilet. He fainted. (I thought I had lost him.) When he came to, I leaned him against the vanity and ran to my neighbor for help. He called 911 and helped me carry my husband back to the hospice bed (which was even more agonizing for him). The ambulance was there in 5 minutes. While riding to Washington Hospital Center in the ambulance, the EMT told me that he was severly hyperkalemic and that his bp was 45/25. (Yes, 45/25). Once in the hospital ER (another horror story), he suffered another 2 hours before they were able to get his pain under control, immediately after which, he passed away. No one should have to die like this in a modern city in a modern hospital. DO NOT USE COMMUNITY HOSPICE OF DC. THEY ARE THE WORST. I have already spoken to my lawyer.

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
