    If I could give NO star. I would. My once vibrant mother suffered a severe stroke and stayed here for about 3 weeks before being discharged to go home with Home Health. She developed an open sore while here because they did not turn her position often enough. She was receiving tube feeding because of her difficulty swallowing, but when she was discharged, the feeding equipment did not arrive for 4.5 days despite numerous calls for help. Apparently the orders were placed without the doctor's signature, and despite numerous calls, nobody bothered to correct it until the equipment company escalated the order to an emergency level. The bed, wheelchair, and commode did not arrive until 2.5 days later either. They also forgot to refer the Home Health agency, and the agency had no record of the referral as of 4 days after the discharge. Though I made a dozen calls and emails, I still did not get a response from Life Care. It is as if they don't care once the patient is gone. The patients are supposed to be turned every 2 hours, but sometimes no one showed up for over 6 or 7 hours even when we called for help. I hate to imagine what other noon-verbal patients suffer without any family member observing and demanding attention. This should not be how human beings are treated at the end of their lives.

    Not good communication with admission staff or social services. Nursing staff is mediocre. Some better than others. Messages left for directors or supervisors not answered until 3 or 4 days later if at all. Please don't bother them at lunch or weekends. That's a no-no. They dont respond anyway. Would not recommend. Its clean but you have to beg for care or help.

    Disappointing is all you can say. What hurts the most is to know that their stuff disappear's when you bring them things. its heartbreaking.

    Stay Far Away...my mom was there for 3 weeks and now has an amputated foot because the wound care team wrapped a gauze bandage too tight cutting off blood circulation. Horrible.

    STAY AWAY! This place is HORRIBLE! The nurses loved my dad but overall lazy staff. Therapy takes their time so you use all of your benefits so they can get your money. The picture on the website is a JOKE. It looks like a hell hole and smells like one too. We are trying to discharge my dad and they are making it very difficult.

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
