    My impression of Darcy Hall was that the nurses have great passion for what they do. I don't know all the details of the facility (I heard it could do more with rehab), but I felt my mom was properly tended to until the end.

    Watching the video gives my a peace of mind that my loved one is in good hands. I hope my loved one feels comfortable throughout her rehabilitation experience at Darcy Care. At this moment, I am pleased!

    My husband Frank was admitted to Darcy Hall In February 2016. He was dealing with dementia , psychosis, with other issues. It was very disturbing to see a man go downhill so quick. I was high on anxiety worrying if I had picked the right facility for him. Needless to say, with months of getting Frank stable was certainly a task. I cannot express my appreciation for the doctors, staff, at Darcy. They must be commended for the unique people they are.This is not an easy task to come in daily and face patients in need, you have to have a special quality to do the job. I observed how they handled the dementia unit and was quite pleased to see that each and every patient was taken care of with their individual needs. I visited several times a week and felt that my husband was taken care of. Wherever we walked through Darcy, everyone knew Frank, they hugged him and spoke with him and made him feel special. I felt special too. The facility was clean, the food was good, they had activities for the patients who could participate. They had Holiday dinners for the patient and families. It was well run and organized. So, thank you Darcy Hall for the utmost care you gave to my husband Frank. Things are stable with Frank now, however, I know, one day he will have to return. My choice would be back at Darcy where he had acquired another family that cared about him.

    Clean, comfortable residence with one major drawback. The administrator, Kesler, has a mean streak. I was thrown out of this facility after I discovered numerous illegal activities. For one, he invaded the sanctuary and privacy of the Resident Council and conspired with other staff members to have its president removed from office. He runs this place like the Gestapo. After he had four or five residents removed, those remaining are in constant fear. Find a calmer place for grandma.

    In the news today for charging for rehab when not needed. Administrator is the 5th in not so many years and the current one is the worst, Kesler. Any trouble from a resident or family and look for a discharge notice. The place is old and the residents are living in fear. Look at other facilities and stay away from this one!

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
