    Do not use this home for you loved ones. Some of the nurses act like they are doing you a favor by helping your loved one. It is a big show when you are moving someone in and then it goes down hill. Lost laundry, moving rooms which make the patient very uncomfortable. Then when you try to talk to them about your concerns they get really snotty and rude. I have been in there and seen a resident with a puddle of urine under their wheel chair and no one was helping them. Please choose another home.

    My Auntie has received the most excellent care. We had an issue and concern when I say it was handle expeditiously, all concerns met with the most caring and professional staff. I am confident and secure in leaving my aunt in their wonderful and capable hands. Thank you, Cassandra whose name fits her beautiful personality she just amazing in introducing us to the facility.

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
