  • ★★★★★ in the last week

    I'm writing this review in advance based on my tour of the facilities and speaking to two former patients (that I know personally) and one resident that is there now....I looked at two other facilities for placement of my Mom who fell and fractured her femur and hip...and chose Lexington based on my tour and personal reviews...but reading all of these negative reviews I hope I made the right choice for her...as I told the young lady who gave us the tour...If you fooled us you fooled us well! She's being transferred in today...so we'll see....

    I worked here all of 2weeks. This place is nice as far as apperence but nothing else. My co woke was very unprofessional. The manage didn't care as long as they had workers. They have a high employment turn over rate. Just no a good place to work at. They treat they residents horrible on the 3 floor.

    My father spent a few months in and out Lexington the year of his death (he died at home in hospice), the staff was always very nice and the room accommodating (he was contagious and had a room to himself). My father would have rather been home, but the facility was adequate. His real only complaint was the food. My mother was in Lexington late in 2013 and again in 2014 for about two months each stay with a chronic infection. The staff was wonderful, but they kept giving her roommates that were unsanitary (urinating on the floor from their bed to the bathroom), often exposing my mother to hazardous conditions and bacteria. You would think they wouldn't put someone with bodily function issues and poor hygiene in a room with someone with a chronic infection, especially when many other rooms are at half capacity/available. Also, the staff interrupts her many times during the night. She is there for IV therapy and rehab, there is no need to wake her 4-5 times a night to check her blood pressure and such (one morning someone was actually moving furniture around at 2am!!!). One of her biggest complaints, more so in 2014 since new ownership, is the food is horrible! Many times like dog food in smell, taste and appearance. Several times a week we bring her food and when we can't, she often passes on the meals (they don't credit you when you are not eating). This can not be good for her strength and rehabilitation efforts - probably prolonging her stay! They REALLY need to do something about the food they provide. Just because most of the residents are elderly does not mean you can feed them substandard food. I believe prisons feed their "residents" better. Also, be smarter on who you make roommates!

    They put my 91 year old mother out in March, 2015 when her 20 days under Medicare ended without given me a chance to discuss payments due for the next 80 days at 20% out pocket expense . This was done based upon false infomations given to them by relatives who was taken money from my mother do to ELDERLY ABUSE. They did everything behind my back and refused to listen to me because they had made up their mind 4 days before I was informed. SERVICES WERE VERY PURE.

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
