    The roof needs redone or fixed over my grandmother's bed is a spot where it has been leaking also there is alot of roaches in the nursing home..I mentioned everything 3 months ago and it has not been fixed. Why keep residents in something like this alot needs to be fixed. Some nurses are nice,some are very ruse and nasty, but the building itself needs improvement and work for the safety and health for the residents. Also I seen other reviews of roaches 8 months ago shouldn't something be done about this!? they want to take resident's money but can't take care of them better than this! The roof, roaches, some nurses, and overall building need work and nurses and people that work here should be nicer they wouldn't want one of their family members in this building! They need do something about the smell too! I know the perfect company to help with the roof and to fix overall building but they don't want to pay for it!

    If there was a way to rate them without a star I would. These people don't have the residence safety or best interests in mind. A family friend was admitted last week, then Friday sent back to the hospital. We were told he fell out of a wheel chair. He was sent to the hospital with no identifications and unconscious. The home said the ambulance lost the paper work. Right. We also found out he didn't fall out of a chair, he fell out of the bed and laid there for who knows how long bleeding with a head injury now. This place should be investigated and shut down. Absolute trash and uncaring lying staff. DON'T SEND ANYONE HERE IF YOU AT ALL CARE FOR THEM!!

    They placed my mother here on Monday, HORRIBLE place!! They wouldn't give her food said hospital should have feed her before placement SHE is a Diabetic!! Her bed was a piece of plywood with foam and the bed rails, etc were broken. She was refused her meds because they said they had no doctors orders which we knew was NOT true. Family had to get her meds and they argued we could not give her meds to her BUT yet refused to give her her shots. When the family left and went home for the night later that night she started having chest pains they called family asking what to do instead of calling 911...we advised them to call 911 and she went back to hospital. Place was nasty and showed no concern of her health and wellbeing....

    This place is so disgusting. I would NEVER think about putting any of my loved ones here. Over the past weekend I did my clinicals here for my school. Theres 8 of us who did clinicals here and pretty much all of us saw cockroaches in different residents' rooms. This morning I walked into a residents' room to give her her lunch and she asked me 'can you please step on that?' I looked down to be met with the biggest cockroach I've ever seen. I went to kill it and it started crawling up the wall and making a hissing sound. It scared the resident so bad. Once I told the CNA and cleaning lady, they simply said 'well we are scared of bugs so we aren't gonna get it. It'll eventually go away.' Then walked away. All of the staff here only care about money. They don't care about the residents. The living environment is horrible. The food they are fed is absolutely disgusting. Yesterday they had steak for lunch and literally only one person was able to eat it. They were hard as bricks. Everyone was complaining. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

    I have been working with this nursing center for a while now...and I am pleased to say that my experience has been wonderful...Yes in every environment that you may work for may not be as amazing as the next, but you make the best out of every situation. I walked into an environment full of warm, and joyful nursing staff along with the amazing administrator Ms. Sharon Jones who has made my career opportunity the best change in my life thus far. I have had the opportunity to be trained by one of the best Social Services Directors ever Mr. James Pope. Mr. Pope has shown me things I didn't know as taking the roll of an Director and I'm very appreciative of that. Now on to what I have read previously on the reviews...every and I mean every Nursing home has there up and downs along with any other residential facilities here in Georgia...Is this not the South??? To all that are reading reviews of Willow Wood Nursing Center please come and experience the warmth as I have. If you are thinking of placing your loved one with Willow Wood please come and Tour our great facility 8am to 5pm. Thank you

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
