    My mother is a relatively new resident at GHCC, but I am delighted with all aspects of her care thus far. She moved from another long term care facility in Gainesville, and I can truly say that GHCC is head and shoulders above her last residence. The facility is modern, spacious and very clean. Every employee I have interacted with is friendly and helpful. Her nursing care is very good. She is just starting physical therapy which will be a positive experience as they are well staffed and the equipment is state-of-the-art. I would recommend GHCC unconditionally.

    Horrible , horrible horrible!!!! If you care for your loved one I strongly advise you not to leave them at this atrocity. Not enough help so your loved one will be left in the bathroom 25-30 minutes . My mother and her roommate finally hobbled to their wheel chair and left on their own. Neither are in any position to stand by them selves. Couldn't find bed pans so they just put them both in diapers and told them to use those. Yes, I'm serious. My mother has extreme health issues and high levels of pain, they don't give her meds on a regular basis. I had to finally sneak her meds in where she could take on her own when she wouldn't receive them on time. Luckily my mom had a cell because there's no phones in the room. I sat with her on the phone 25 minutes waiting for the nurse she buzzed to come . Anything that you can imagine negative about one of these establishments is what your love one will receive here.

    I can't speak to the reviews here from years ago as places do have management/staff turnovers to improve their business but the recent ones, I have NO idea how they did not rate this place good! Just posted the following on Facebook too: Unfortunately we have been in this situation for 2 years and have had our fair share of BAD "long term rehab" (AKA nursing home) for my stepdad (like Palm Gardens, North Florida Rehab) and he's been here for about 6 months now and they are so clean, caring, attentive and we couldn't be more thankful for the staff there (especially Jose Dell who has been especially amazing to my stepdad)!

    The new facility on Archer Rd is so much better than the old place. It is bright and sunny and the rooms are larger than they were at the old place. The residents each have their own TV mounted on the wall. There are visiting areas for company. I think they are doing much better now.

    This is the worst place to put any human. Our loved one was in there for 34 days. They allowed a man that is a client there to enter womens rooms while they are doing personal things such as getting dressed, etc. and they do nothing to stop him. According to the Administrator he has the right to roam and he is harmless. If they put and keep your loved one in Lock-down there is no way out. According to the administrator he alone, not even a doctor, the nurses, the social worker, nor could a patient earn their way out of Lock-down unless the administrator say they can be put on a regular wing. The administrator gives medical information with him having no medical degree. He couldn't even pronounce the medical terms and did not know what they meant therefore could not explain the findings of a CT scan as he was trying to read it. They outsorce the filing of Medicade for assistance in payment. The company wanted a fee to file for Medicade. The company starts off by saying that they understand we need assistance in filing for Medicade and they were asked by Gainesville Health Care to contact us. They proceed to ask all the questions and at the end they ask for payment of over $2,300.00. What a shocker! Gainesville Health care refuses to help in any filing of medicade papers and claim they can be done online and try to give a web site address and send you on your way and not to mention of how rude the financial lady was. The day we were moving our loved one to a different facility, they claimed not to be aware of her leaving. That was not ture. They were all told that if she wasn't going to be moved out of Lock-down, then I was going to move her. Even the day before she left they were contacted. So in turn, they had no paperwork completed which conviently delayed our loved one leaving. The facility said they are striving for a 5 star rating, but it will take more than nice furniture, new building and fruity water at the door to get a 5 star from us. Very upset and disappointed in Gainesville Health Care. The Administration made a hard decision even worse ny their actions.

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
