    Nice facility but understaffed. The response time to patients when needed (button pushed) can be long. My mother had a recent stay with them for rehab and needed assistance. It took nearly 45 minutes for a response. I spoke with one of the nurses with my concern because if she had fallen or was having a heart attack or some serious emergency, the response could have been too late and loss of life can occur within that time. The nurse had no answer for me with the lack of response time. MAJOR CONCERN!!! Lawsuit waiting to happen. Not good!!!

    Not happy with the care, a lot of in-services needed. (That is the nice version of the horrible care provided) Management will attempt to put words in your mouth, they will lie to your face and on the phone without any problem. The only thing positive here is therapy. The nursing care is pathetic. A nurse on the 11-7 shift yelled at my mother shook her and demanded she wake up to take medication, the nurse poured the pills in my mothers mouth and then almost choked her by pouring water in her mouth and demanded she swallow them and be quite. Please seek another place for your loved one. I am horrified that rehab facilities and Long Term Care facilities are run this way. You need to stay with your family to make sure they are not treated poorly or abused and they get thousands of dollars a mo from each patient, it is disgusting to say the least. Always call your local ombudsman for the facility you place your loved one in and call the state survey team if you have any concerns, taking it to the management staff is useless since they are providing poor care to your loved ones and trying to cover it up with BS. Nobody should go through such an experience.

    I stayed at the Oaks for over two weeks. I had excellent service. The staff was super nice and helpful. I was there for short term rehab and and found both the OT and JT were helpful and knowledgeable in their fields. When I arrived, I could not get off the bed by my self. When I left, I was getting up and down by myself and walking around in my room with a walker. The food was good but because I ate in my room instead of the dining room, sometime my food was not warm but was eatable.Would I recommend The Oaks...you bet I you are looking for a no-nonsense facility, I would.check out the Oaks.

    THERAPY is outstanding! When I called my great-grandmo ther's room # ,the therapist was in there & gladly told me how well her walking went how long they did therapy everything! THERAPY DESERVES 5 STARS! NOW for the 2 stars! The facility is beautiful but when a nurse brought my grandmother her pills ,she had to use the bathroom so the nurse went to look for a cna & since the family was in the room she came back after 30mins & says "CNA is busy so guess I will take u there so let's go" we looked at her as she pulled my grandmother up to the wheelchair to the bathroom then we told her that grandmother needs a gait belt used for transfers bc it makes her feel more safe & this is the reply we got "well I'm a nurse not a cna so I usually don't take folks to the bathroom & I don't know where the belts are anyways" WOW we thought... after the bathroom remark hour later as we were leaving the cna brought her lunch tray which was literally a bowl with a hamburger in it, a bowl of green beans & a bowl of bread... no plate when we asked what was going on with that the reply was "yeah we have to fix our own hall trays & bowls are all only available" what the hell.... after that we went to find the administrator to asnbk about a care plan or 72hr meeting that no one had set up with us so we requested it to be within few days & maybe that will help make us feel better about the staff. Ugh

    I would not recommend anyone's loved one being taken here. There are a few good people but that's about the only positive. Just don't do it. If it would let me give zero stars I would.

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
