    I have lived here for about 8 months. I have found the staff to be fun, loving, caring, helpful, and very giving of their time (often free time). I think the food is excellent with a good variety of choices. I really appreciate the effort in managing all of my doctor's appointments. I can't imagine taking myself to all of my appointments. I'm informed prior to and the night before each appointment is scheduled and the staff makes sure I'm ready to go with a ride that gets me there in plenty of time. I've made many friends during my stay and I have a great support system here (friends and staff) to the point that I'm not sure I'd ever want to leave. I enjoy living here. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone should you need the care.

    This place is TERRIBLE. They don't take care of the residents, they don't give important meds on time, it takes them over 30 mins to answer the call button and they will let the IV machine go off (due to the bolus bag being empty) for a log time before coming to fix it. They toss dirty gloves on the floor, they lie, they have no compassion or empathy. Your loved one would be better off anywhere other than this place.

    My mother in law has been staying at Apex for the past month due to a fall at her assisted living facility. She was admitted to rehab after being hospitalized for a week with a broken pelvis and sacrum...she was released today. We have been pleasantly surprised at the amazing care she received! The staff took extra time/patience with her and checked on her every 15 minutes due to her dementia and risk of falling. The nurses, and CNA's who work here truly care. The social worker Michelle worked with us and was efficient and followed through with us in every possible way. I would recommend apex as a quality rehab hospital to anyone who has any reservations!

    They are a little short staffed with assistants but that is true of most healthcare facility. My elderly mother was in the facility for 3 weeks for recovery from a fall and fractured femur. The physical therapy was impressive - daily. I felt very comfortable with her being in this facility. The laundry service is slow - prepare to have at least 1 week of clothing if having in-house laundry. The facility has been updated and rooms are painted with nice neutral colors and new flooring.

    THIS IS A DANGEROUS FACILITY FOR HIGH RISK PATIENTS. I found the C.N.A.s to be hard working, respectful, and full of commitment toward their patients. However, management was lacking in terms of helping to provide adequate staff to support patient needs. Family members timed response time for call lights to repetitively be 20-45 minutes. If your loved one is fully functional this is a great facility, but not fit for patients with more needs. It should also be noted that one member of the nursing staff received an emergency call from a family member in response to a changed condition in a patient. She was asked to immediately check on a patient due the patients call to family for help. The nurse DID NOT treat the situation as an emergency and insisted that the patient was fine due to his recent vital check. She admittedly DID NOT go to the patients room, nor believe that a family member was capable of noting change in the patient. Later emergency response teams diagnosed the patient as having a stroke, and issued a warning to the family that, "Timing in response to a stroke was paramount in effectively treating, stopping, and reversing the effects of it". The family firmly believes that the patient having access to a personal cell phone is the only reason emergency response teams arrived in time to adequately diagnose and treat him in terms of his stroke. THIS IS A DANGEROUS FACILITY FOR HIGH RISK PATIENTS.

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
