    My father was admitted to this facility for rehab from the hospital. He only came in with the clothes he had on from the hospital. The problem is that I brought an entire duffle bag worth of clothes for him after admission . A week later he's discharged to another facility with only a gown on. I came back to morse to pick up whatever he had maybe left behind due to the time laundry takes to wash everything. They said nothing was on his inventory sheet. The marble floors and nice decor fooled me into thinking I had nothing to worry about. It may not mean much to some people but when all you have to your name is a duffle bag of clothes and a few personal items it means a lot to that person. All of his clothes and items have been labeled yet nothing can be found and of course the inventory sheet sheet had nothing on it. They said they would continue looking but all know how that is going to go.

    Two years ago, when my mom got cancer, Dr. Markle, a geriatric doctor, told me that I should think about giving her quality of life and to think twice before putting my mom through chemo. Dr. Markle is not a specialist and was inferring that I should basically let het died of breast cancer because since she is an Alzheimer patient. Not once did the Dr. say, let's go step by step and consult a cancer specialist before making any decisions (my husband that was in the room said that in that meeting). Then there was the "Social Worker" that continued asking me about my mom's funeral arrangements, during the meeting??? Human Factor out the door. Initially that didn't want to provide my mom with cancer treatment see the specialist. I had to threaten them by saying that I would report them to Medicare if they didn't get her the care she needed. Morselife dragged their feet for 3 months. After seeing the specialist, it was determined that biopsy would need to be done to verify the mass inside my mom's left breast. The biopsy was made, and the malignant mass was removed in the same procedure and she got a radio therapy treatment for 2 weeks. So, why did they hesitate to grant her medical service she needed. They also manipulated the situation in their favor because they refused to get her neurological attention. Another issue, my mom is currently in a assisted living place. Two weeks ago, she fell and banged her head. The assisted living admin called me to tell what happened. Pace/MorseLife pick her and 2 hours later they brought her back to the assisted living facility and never informed me about any of the results. NOTHING!

    Marble floors and beautiful decor impress you when you walk into the entrance of the rehab center.....10 different department heads descend into the patients room in the first hours of arrival...all explaining what a fantastic job they will be doing for your loved one. Bu't try to connect with one of them a week later to respond to a problem and it's an impossibility!! The phones won"t connect you to ANYONE... NO ONE on the floor or at the desks know what is going on re: the activities listed on the calendar ; how to get to them or where to get help for your questions .....what a joke! There is no cell phone service anywhere in this building so you must go back outside to make or receive a call. Very understaffed for the level of care needed for all those in the rehab center...24 patients to 1 nurse...8 patients to 1 CNA. Maybe that is why one of the first things I saw on the way to my mother's room was a man who had fallen ...lying on the bathroom floor of his room with not a soul in sight.I had to find a CNA and report it myself. The quality of the food service was the only good review to offer.

    In September my grandfather came here. I took care of him so I knew when something was wrong. He couldn't breath and was dehydrated. I advised the nurses he needed to go back to the hospital asap and they didn't care at all. I had to go overboard in order for them to actually send him back. Thank god i was there because not even an hour of being in hospital he was resesitated. Past away that night. WORST PLACE EVER.

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
