    I have worked at quite a few places but I've never worked with such wonderful people, and I'm not just talking about the staff. Everyone is friendly and genuinely cares about the residents. The activities girls always have smiles on their faces and try to get as many residents involved in the activities they do as possible. The resident liaison does anything in her power to make sure the residents and their families are happy during their stay. I have never seen an administrator who is so involved in the goings on in their building. I've read posts from friends at other facilities and they all talk about their admin not even knowing their long term residents names. That is definitely not the case at Altoona Nursing and Rehab. Its kind of like Cheers, its a place where everyone knows your name (even family members).

    My father went in for rehab for a broken hip and shoulder, two (2) month after arriving there he had sepsis and his whole heal was rotting. I found on my daily visits that he never had his call light or urinal. Also one day a nurse was doing a swab on his heal and put his bare heal with an open wound on the dirty floor in front of me. I brought my father home with hospice after only 2 months at this center and he died 9 days later.

    My Mother-in-law is at this facility. It is all my Father-in-law can afford. My Mother-in-law suffered a stroke and is receiving some physical therapy. She was bleeding from her vagina for about 3 months now and the nurse said she is going to be having a surgery this month. They won't tell me what kind of surgery. I just keep praying.

    I would not put anyone here the staff is uncaring and the ones that try to help are over ruled by a higher up

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
