    My mother had back surgery and against my wished came to this kennel. The place is not disinfected at all, the staff doesn't feed the patients, leave them in there waste all day. They don't provide proper medical attention required while at the facility. My mom has been cursed at, left alone with nothing to eat or drink, left to fend for herself. The nurses lie about checking on you. I spoke with Elise Joseph and the same thing is still happening. Not feeding my mother, not bringing her food, giving her medicine. The staff needs to be fired all the way to the head nurse Ms Stephanie. They have mistreated my mother as if she doesn't have a daughter who's about that life when it comes to the care of my mother. My mother is a retired educator and should not be treated as if it's a privilege to be at a faculty when the nurses ignore the patients when they speak to them or have them outside when they want to come in. This place is a disgrace to serve anyone.

    The nursing and care skills are a disgrace to the nursing and healthcare field the staff needs to be trained on customer service and quality service when people put their family members here they trust they will be in good care. I came to visit my aunt who's here for physical therapy the staff were very unpleasant I expect to be greeted by a friendly welcoming smile when I go to any medical establishment it doesn't make sense the service we received the restrooms are very nasty and smell horrible I pray whoever is in charge will receive this review and make a change as soon as possible or I will be forced to contact the health department as well as Human Resources. Don't apologize to me for the care we are receiving you guys as the owners need to straighten the staff out and fix the problem there are too many negative reviews on here for this establishment everybody can't be lying!

    I've had the pleasure of working with these folks for about 8 years and I can't think of a better crew. They are truly my family and I admire how passionate they are about caring for our patients.

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
