    My husband spent six weeks at LCCK, recovering from a near-fatal stroke. He received excellent, personalized care, and the speech, physical and occupational therapists were absolutely phenomenal. They worked with him steadily, setting and achieving goals that were well beyond expectations. We are especially grateful to the speech therapists, Lea and Alana, for their patient, persistent, caring and creative work. By the end of his stay, it seemed like everyone knew him - from the laundry lady to the chef - and all cheered his progress. Thanks to them, he is 90% his old self - walking, talking, driving, enjoying time with friends, and going back to work. I had several meals with him and the food was pretty good! You can buy a meal ticket for $3 at the business office. There was a special pre-Thanksgiving dinner buffet, and various events and activities guests may join. At Christmas, they brought a little tree to his room, and "Santa" left presents underneath. I would recommend LCCK with confidence.

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
