    Took a tour and very rude staff plus depressing environment. Competitors do a much better job of connecting with you and family. Went to Kavinaugh house and way better staff. I understand now why they don't have many patients.

    My dad was here for two weeks and we moved him to another facility. I was willing to give them every chance, but things just did not get better. They couldn't get his meds to him on time; it was extremely loud - patients AND staff yelling in the halls; no one coming in to check on him for hours at a time; his food tray sitting for hours with no one coming to get it; they insisted that we leave the room while they changed him, which made us wonder why, because we've never had any other place insist on that; they didn't change his bed linens- he laid on a pillowcase that had bloodstains on it for days; the toilet always had feces smeared on the seat from the other resident who shared the bathroom because they didn't clean it up; the staff was indifferent- when we couldn't wake him up to take his meds, one of the nurses told me he was "faking sleep". It was like "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" there.

    Bishop Drumm is the absolute best Senior Living community in the area. I have had the opportunity to see different communities across the country and the staff at Bishop Drumm us top shelf.

    Well I've worked here and it was good up until. CHI took over. My opinion is if you love your family member dont put them in this retirement home. Overall the staff is not trained properly. The environment is enclosed and feels like prison. Many of the residents there that I'm close to all say that Bishopp Drumm in there words is a S*** Hole. The administrators are complete dipsticks and dont care about the residents just as long as it puts money in there pockets. I put in my two week notice and both of the administrators didnt say a word to me. Not a thanks for the work I've done and nothing. So dont I mean dont put your family member in this place. If you really wanna know how to get to know the place just walk in and you will see what I mean. The building is so run down. The walls have black mold from rainwater water. And what did they do put in new carpet..... theres my point the administrators are dipsticks.

    I like Bishop Drumm Retirement Center. Overall, BDRC has a lot of good things going on. When one gets of a certain age or develops an infirmity that requires around-the-clock care, it's a big deal. Not just for the person entering a long term care facility, but for the family and friends, who quite often are responsible for initiating and paying for the life-changing event. Such matters are frequently difficult, if not painful. BDRC is ready to provide three hots and a cot, activities, therapy, access to counseling, coordinate transportation and doctor's visits, and whatever a human being needs to stay healthy and clean on a daily basis. Showers a couple times a week. I see one fellow really dinged the facility. No clue if he's family, a former employee, or someone with expectations beyond what is basically available. Don't know. Anyway, my experience over the last year has been positive. People and businesses - that are made up of other people - have good days and not so good days. A person has to ask themselves, "Based on my budget, and comparing this facility to other similar facilities, how much help do I need to survive in old age (rehab or chronic sickness), and what can I afford to pay?" If one has unlimited resources, or ridiculously high expectations, then maybe in-home private nursing is best for whomever. If you or your loved one are existing on the charity of others, then perhaps it would be well to abide and be thankful for the blessings that do come your way. Again, I like Bishop Drumm Retirement Center.

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
