    My aunt was placed in this facility for rehab after she was in the hospital for over 6 months. She was allowed 5 therapy visits per week. It change without notice to 3 visits per week. The physical therapist saw her 2 days and the occupational therapist saw her 1 day. My Aunt informed me that therapy didn't last but 15-20 minutes at a time. Part of my Aunt's therapy was to be out of bed and sitting in her wheelchair everyday. She had ask most days of the week and several times she was told that they were too busy because they were short staffed. She was told that she could sit on the side of the bed herself and do therapy by herself on no therapy days but she was scared to do it without support or someone watching her. She slept on an air bed that inflates and deflates on it's own. Being left in soiled diapers for a couple of hours at a time was normal. She had a very bad diaper rash as well that was a bright angry red. She complained to the therapist that her feet were heavy and she couldn't feel them. She was told that they just needed to wake up. She was repeatedly told by the staff that the management will do anything they can to keep you there because they needed the money. On every visit that I made to Pinehill, the facility smelled of old dirty diapers. I brought my Aunt home after 4 1/2 months at Pine Hill. She was barely able to stand on her own 10-15 seconds with consistency at first. She began receiving PT 2 days a week at home & OT 1 day a week. Everyday she sat on the side of the bed and did her exercises while I supervised. She transferred to her wheelchair each day. I placed the bed pan at her side where she could reach it to use for her bowel movements. Within a few minutes of meeting my Aunt, the therapist said that she probably needs to go see a neurologist for her feet. She may have neropathy. Flash forward 5 weeks at home. She is able to walk the length of our full basement with the assistance of her walker. She uses the bedside toilet and is diaper free with limited exceptions. Her diaper rash cleared up within 3 weeks at home using Desitin. She transfers from the wheelchair to the car without incident (including in pouring rain). She has been taken off a couple of the medications that she was kept on while at Pinehill. Unfortunately after talking with staff and other patients, this is the normal routine. On my Aunt's final invoice, it showed a $672 credit. I emailed Beverly (the Director of the facility) and received no response. A couple weeks later, I emailed her again. I called a few days later and was told that a check was being cut. A week later and no check received from my Aunt's personal account or the $672, and I was informed by Beverly that she thought I was owed something but the management didn't think so. I asked to speak to the person that she spoke to and was informed that I couldn't. She couldn't even give me the number. I asked for the name of the management company and the person she spoke to and was given a name of Michelle with Beacon Management. My Aunt is also missing several pieces of clothing and even saw another resident with her clothes on. My Aunt reported it to the head house keeper. We made a list of items when I checked her out. I was given a call last week from the house keeping manager and was told no one had reported anything missing. I was just informed by Beverly when I called that nothing could be found. I wouldn't recommend Pinehill Nursing Center.

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.

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
