    A friend has been there for a few weeks and I (and numerous friends) have visited several times. My friend is weak and cannot get out of bed, walk or shower/use restroom without an assist. I have dropped by unexpectedly and seen the care they take to make sure he is not in discomfort while they are moving him. His clothing and body are always odor free, as is his room. They check on him periodically, are always cheerful around him, and seem genuinely concerned for his welfare. They have transportation available to take him to Iowa City for tests and doctor visits if desired. There are two friendly cats on each floor that roam free and give the residents company. There is also a large birdcage with small colored birds that residents can sit by. We usually arrive shortly after lunch, and have seen entertainment, ranging from Bingo to singers, taking place each time. I have met the Administrator, and she was outgoing, friendly, and seems genuine in her concern for my friends care. The facility lobby, hallway bathrooms, hallways, common areas, and my friend's room are always clean and odor free. Everything is well lit, the furnishings are maintained and modern. I spoke with a maintenance man who was painting/touching up a small spot in my friends room. He was also friendly and talkative. My friend's room had no TV, so I inquired. The maintenance man said they have TV's available for the rooms and could be brought in anytime ( my friend didn't want one at this time). I am a former elder abuse investigator and have been in numerous nursing homes before. From everything I've observed, Alverno deserves their high ratings, and I'm glad my friend is receiving care there.

    Both my father and mother have used their "skilled care" facilities. While my father had a good experience when they housed this service on the lower floor, my mother had a very horrible experience. Her room was as far as you could get from the nurse's station on the 3rd floor.She was left chilled and alone on toilet. They argued with her over 45 minute waits for a response to her calls. She was left in the dining room for over an hour when everyone had gone. They gave her food she physically could not eat and told her it was that or nothing. They took two hours and several prompts from me to get her a simple cup of tea. She had had surgery pain, and anxiety and they treated her as if nothing was wrong. They are understaffed and frankly no longer doing skilled care no matter what they say. I think they are living on a former reputation. DO NOT put you family member here. If you do drop by at night when the lack of staff is obvious.

Compare The Number of Problems

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
