    I am grateful that Labor Day hindered my mom's admission to this chaotic facility. I arrived prior to my mother's discharge from the hospital to set up her room and put away her belongings. From the moment I walked into the facility I saw nothing but unhelpful staff talking to each other in the hallways completely unresponsive to me with bags in hand wandering around trying to find her assigned room. The chatter and clatter were so loud it felt at odds with the healing atmosphere I had pictured. My thought was "wow, with this loud chaotic atmosphere how could anyone recover?" Especially considering that my mother has moderate Alzheimer's Disease. I felt anxiety upon entering this facility and was disheartened by the lack of concern or awareness the staff had for anything other than their own personal conversations. I found my way to my mother's shared room and found a sweet elderly patient in her bed wanting to know if I could move her. I introduced myself and helped her to find the nurse call button. When no nurse arrived as I was unpacking for mom I went out to the nurse's station to seek assistance for this patient. It was at this time I was told my mom couldn't be admitted since the pharmacy had closed for Labor Day at which point I called her husband and said we needed to find a better place as I was highly concerned about what I was seeing. I am a nurse practitioner and make patient comfort and safety my priority. I have heard that this facility offers excellent physical therapy however the skilled nursing aspect of this facility was appalling. Please come and check this place out unannounced prior to sending a loved one here. I relied upon my mother's husband's opinion after his visit. He was impressed by the positive reviews her hospitalist and physical medicine physician's assistant gave and was told this was a premier location for my mom to rehab from her pelvic fracture. He trusted their esteemed opinion despite having some concerns of his own on his tour of the facility. I am grateful we found the calming skilled nursing facility just down the road that also has a stellar reputation with a much lower patient census so that my mom can feel more comfortable, heal and return home. This was a shocking and eye opening experience. And if your hospital case worker gives you a hard time about changing your mind and wanting to change rehab facility locations do not accept anything less than your loved one deserves. Their job is to assist you in making the best decision for your loved one so do not feel pressure to pick what's easiest for the case worker to free up a bed for the hospital.

    They hire nurses that are openly homophobic. I suggest you look into is caring for your loved one, and avoid Naiomi Ekemode! If you can hate and condem one group, how can you trust them to care for everyone equally?

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.
