    I would give this home a less than 1 if I could ..the current administrator is a poor example of upper management.. He has no people skills or compassion for anyone but himself . He has unrealistic demands he require from his supervisors & other employees . I enjoyed working with the people in my department & others . I enjoyed the residents . The Administrator makes it hard to do your job efficiently when the facility is always under staffed . Good luck to everyone that continues to work there under his management

    If I could give NO stars I would. Because of the lack of care given to my mother she is no longer with us. She went in for short stay rehab after a stroke and was doing great when she left the hospital...simple enough, but ended up passing away from malnutrition and kidney failure because no one was making sure she was eating and drinking enough. She lost over 30 pounds in the month she was in the nursing home. She was unable to use her left arm so she needed assistance with cutting food into small enough bites so she wouldn't choke, but didn't get it. When family made reports to staff that something wasn't right, their concerns were ignored or they were told she would have to wait her turn to see a doctor. Many days my father would sit in the room and never did anyone come to check on my mother. By the time the facility decided to have her checked, it was too late, her kidneys had completely shut down, she had sores on her bottom because she couldn't move herself enough to get the pressure off. Please listen to your family member if they say they are not being cared for here!!! I do not want anyone else to lose a loved one because of this place!!! I DO NOT, NOR WOULD I EVER RECOMMEND THIS FACILITY!!!

    It's one of the few places in the area to send your loved ones, unfortunately. For the price it cost us to have my father in law there for 5 weeks, his care was unacceptable. Look for other options before sending your loved ones here.

    My Grandpa has been at Elmwood for the past 8 months and we have had nothing but great service from the nurses. They go above and beyond what I was expecting to make sure my Grandpa is comfortable, safe and happy! I couldn't have asked for a better experience :].

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
