    My mother celebrated her 100th birthday last week. And the Lutheran Home Hearthstone threw a party for her. A big cake, even the mayor was there. We tried to convince her for years to allow us to move her to Hearthstone. It took a bad fall and her family doctor to get her here. Now she says "this is heaven".

    Lutheran Home should be called a haven for all of the residents. We have the aid and help we need from the staff. The service and food would be difficult to match. Most impressive is the gardening, flowers, walkways which are carefully planned and enjoyed by everyone. Beautiful display of landscape all around! Virginia -- Resident

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
