    I have been working in this building for over 27 years since Signature took over and made it a Christian facility. I truly love working in this building. We have a sweet administrator. He is a fair person to work for. My pastor always told me that everyone is not going to like you.No matter what you do. The staff here is great and very pleasant to get along with. They are team players .

    My grandmother is a patient there for rehabilitation. She has been there several times in the past. She is an elderly woman about 93 but very feisty. She complain to me today that because the food is always cold n it takes the nurses 20-30 mins for the nurses to come when she calls. She spoke with administration today and no longer wishes to be there. Personally I've visit every time she is there and its always been clean n the staff are nice. However I'm not there all the time. I have read the reviews and I'm impressed. I hope things work out for her.

    I came there from Candler bc I can't stand almost 3 yrs. Just had arthroscopy on left knee and amputation of big right toe. Was supposed to stay until 8/8, 21 days total. First day PT guy Joe insisted I put my full weight on both feet, lifting my butt from the bed. Ended up badly spraining both ankles, still hurt. Decided to switch from PT to OT knowing I wasn't ready to stand. My surgeon and their Dr Hall both said Zero weight bearing until the stitches are removed. Darren said Joe told him it's okay for me to stand and Darren took his opinion over 2 Dr's. Was told I need to participate in some type of therapy for our insurance to pay for my stay. At first was told OT covered the requirements.I was not offered any alternative PT. Only that Joe insisted I'm ready to stand. I'm not but I have been doing leg and arm exercises daily. Then told NO, if I don't do PT they're releasing me that Saturday July 28th. I was supposed to be sent home with an electric hospital bed and a Hoyer lift. I have my own wheelchair, walkers, ramp. Still haven't rcvd the lift. It was like pulling teeth to get Darren to approve just the bed. He refused to authorize the lift. I cannot transfer from the bed to a wheelchair. Then late Saturday afternoon we were told the cost of transporting me home was our responsibility. A great crew heard our problem and took me home. We didn't have the $ to pay a transport fee that day or any day. Darren didn't care nor did he offer any alternatives. I'm now home in a hospital bed under my husband's care. The staff was 50/50. Some really nice, some nice to your face and the rest didn't do a thing. Of course I had favorites. Meka on day shift was always right there. Virginia and Alvilla (sp) on overnights. Midday were polite but very slow. Housekeeping were sweethearts. Always smiling with nice greetings. Brightened my lonely days. The nurse practitioner was a haughty, overbearing, ignorant excuse for her profession. Spoke to my husband and myself as if we were uneducated children. Spoke slowly and we felt degraded. Thankfully we had very few reasons to see her. The food served there I wouldn't give as scraps to stray animals. I'm allergic to onions so I asked no meals be brought near me prepared with onions. I asked for zero fish just the bc I hate it. 3x I was brought fish. Didn't like the big breakfast they serve. Way too much heavy food. Asked for cereal, yogurt and cranberry juice. Lactose intolerant so I used the juice on my cereal. Asked for 2 cereals for lunch and a big salad with 2 hard boiled eggs for dinner w/Italian dressing only. Same menu, every day...keeping it simple. Once or twice they'd get it right but more often than not I'd be sending it back. Then a nurse comes in telling me I'm abusing the aides having them go back n to the kitchen. I'd say back, my preferences are listed. Just follow them. Never got 2 eggs, only 1 cut in half. They told me that's 2 eggs. So IMHO, I feel their dietary and kitchen staff have no concept on how to run a nursing/rehab schedule. Point in fact: first few days I was brought 1 or 2 toasted cheese sandwiches. Great for a snack but not an everyday staple to live on.First of all I'm completely sedentary. Can't stand or walk so eating those for every meal would've constipated me for certain. Plus I'm diabetic (toe just amputated) so from a dietary view they're totally unacceptable. One now and again but not 4 a day. It's all bread cheese and butter, a carbo/fat nightmare. Semi private room, this didn't bother me one bit. In fact I looked fwd to the company as my husband couldn't stay as long here, mainly bc the only chair available was hard solid wood. My roommate was one of the sweetest ladie's I've ever had the pleasure to meet. She'd had a stroke recently and didn't speak or move well on her own. But her right foot shook when something pleased her. Her daughter was a constant visitor, ensuring her mom's care was done right, or if it even had been done.

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.
