    This facility needs to be closed and torn down. It is very old, everything looks like it is half way put together. The paint is peeling, fire escape doors are blocked with beds. My Mother was here and the staff does not do what they should. My Mother got an infection here. I had to ask them to give her a correct amount of food. She was getting less then what a toddler would eat. They do not bath the patients until the day they are on the list....... NO they don't bath them even once a week. The place is cold, drafty, nurses standing at the side door inside the building smoking.. The Admin people can never be contacted by phone. There is no person to answer the phone just who ever happens to hear it ringing. They have a "wanderer" person that wanders the halls going in other people's rooms. That is against the law. This place is horrible. Why does the state allow these places to stay open. People sitting in dirty diapers should not be allowed.

    *Note: this review is for the rehab section, I am not sure of the nursing home here* We did not want to send my dad here based on the other reviews, but it ended up being the only place that his insurance would cover. We were extremely hesitant and tried to stay as present as we could the first few days to check out the situation. A few days went by and we were very surprised - everyone was friendly, we were updated if anything went wrong, my dad was taken care of well. I ask him regularly how he is treated and he says everyone has been professional and kind- this has been our take on it too. The building is not in great condition and needs updating for sure, but we're overlooking that since he is getting the care he needs.

    My 92 year old Grandmother was in there for three weeks of therapy we took her out after the forth day. The only good thing I can say about this place is the roof does not leak. This building should be demolished. The staff is terrible, rude not well trained & have dirty habits. Over all most of the staff does not follow the minimum state requirements. Think twice before you send your loved one there.

    Violations of state mimumum requirements are easy to spot in this facility. Disgusting treatment of patients and visitors. Guest "rooms" overlook charming decor of used car tires in stacks, even during the night where staff refuse to close the blinds.

    Absolutely disgusting. My great-grandmother was harassed, and neglect on the verge of abuse is rampant in this so-called rehab facility. Staff refuse to bring water, answer calls from patients, or even speak to the patients. Water is classified as a fundamental human right, and yet is denied here. I would not allow my dog to be cared for in this facility. $5000 a month for blood-stained paint-chipped walls, rude staff, and filthy corridors. Staff refuse to make eye contact with visitors, answer questions, and aid patients when they need to use the restroom.

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
