    I HAD A FRIEND IN THERE AND USED TO POP IN AT DIFFERENT TIMES OF THE DAY TO CHECK ON HIM BECAUSE THIS MANAGEMENT IS NO GOOD. IF YOU HAVE A LOVE ONE IN THERE, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK IN ON THEM ALL THE TIME ESPECIALLY IF THEY CAN NOT TALK OR CONFUSED. THEY HAD AN ISSUE THERE OF SCABIES WHERE THEY ORDERED BOXES OF ELIMITE CREAMS AND PUT THEM ON THE PATIENTS ON THE LONG TERM SIDE WITH THE ACCEPTION OF A FEW THAT CAN TALK AND WITHOUT THE FAMILIES BEING AWARE. STAFF WERE ALSO OFFERED. THEY HAVE NURSES/SUPERVISOR IN THERE THAT ARE IN SPECIAL PROGRAMS AND ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO TOUCH NARCOTICS, SIGNING THAT THEY GAVE THEM...HMMM..ONE CAN ONLY WONDER! MEDICATIONS NOT BEING GIVEN BY CERTAIN NURSES. CRITICAL LABS NOT BEING CALLED IN TO THE DOCTORS. STAFF WITH MULTIPLE ABUSE CASES STILL IN THERE CARING FOR PATIENTS EVEN AFTER THEY'VE BROKEN THE PATIENT'S FINGER BUT WAS EXCUSED BECAUSE THE CNA BACKED THEM UP. ON THE 3-11 SHIFT YOU CAN EXPECT TO FIND THE CNA'S JUST SITTING AND CHILLING AROUND THE COMPUTER AT THE NURSES STATION WHILE NUMEROUS CALL LIGHTS GOING OFF. ONLY TIME THEY ACTUALLY DO A DECENT JOB IS WHEN THE SURVEYORS ARE IN THE BUILDING. SUPERVISOR ALONG WITH THE CNA'S PUTTING THEIR HEADS TOGETHER TO WRITE AND SIGN A PETITION OF LIES AGAINST PATIENT AND FAMILY MEMBERS THAT THEY DON'T LIKE TO GET THEM KICK OUT OR START TROUBLE WITH FAMILY MEMBERS TO GET THEM BANNED FROM THE BUILDING. STAFF ARE RUDE AND NASTY! WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW. STAFF COMING TO WORK UNDER THE INFLUENCE AND HAD TO BE SENT TO THE HOSPITAL. THE DON WOULD TELL THE NURSE TO KEEP A BLEEDING/SICK PATIENT IN THE FACILITY EVEN AFTER THE DOCTOR SAYS TO SEND THEM OUT. THEY'LL TRY TO KEEP A VERY SICK PATIENT IN THE BUILDING AS LONG AS THEY CAN OR START IV'S JUST SO THEY WON'T SEND THEM OUT OR WILL SEND THEM AFTER A CERTAIN TIME SO THEY CAN GET PAID. FOOD IS NASTY. DRESSINGS NOT BEING CHANGED. THEY HAVE WAYS TO FORGE OR COVER UP WHAT THEY WANT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES. MANAGEMENT ARE WRITING GOOD REVIEWS ABOUT THEMSELVES ONLINE. IT'S A GOOD LOOKING BUILDING WITH THE WRONG ADMINISTRATION.

    Life care of PSL is a beautiful clean friendly skilled facility with some of the best nursing and therapy staff in town. The staff are hardworking caring compassionate that have our residents best interest at heart. No facility is perfect or will ever compare to the care given by their own loved ones and it can never compare to the comfort of our own home but we strive daily to come close. We are always willing to listen and try to make things as comfortable as possible while you heal with us. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your family.

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
