    My sister has been a resident of this community for about 8 years. I would have to assume she is well known to the staff, yet, EVERY TIME I SENT HER A GREETING CARD to let her know I am thinking of her, it is returned to me as, "Return to Sender, Not deliverable as addressed." Each time this has occurred, I have called the facility to inquire how I can better address her mail so this will not happen again. I know she pays a great deal for living in this facility. Even though she is now in the "Memory Unit," I am NOT and I want her to receive mail reminding her that she has not been forgotten by her family. What is going on?

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
