    My husband had fallen and broke his femer bone and required surgery. After surgery he had to have physical therapy in the hospital for about two weeks. At that time we had to take him home with Home Care and PT. Once we took him home we discovered his wheel chair would not fit through our interior doors. So we had to come up with a plan for a nursing home with PT". I suggested one in Lebanon but he insisted that we go to Marka because it was closer. Well against my wishes we took him to Marka. He was put into a room at the end of the hallway. There were three beds in the room. One for my husbands arrival had the bed made, but the other two in the room one was only with a fitted sheet and the third bed had no sheets on it. Wires where hanging from the ceiling and down the walls. Three televisions and none of them worked. The bathroom was a dirty mess and he was suppose to share with a lady in the next room. Since my husband had had surgery he was only allowed to get around in his wheelchair with one leg and his arms. He was not allowed to put any pressure on the hip that had surgery for 6 weeks. So he needed assistance with wiping his butt due to his injury. So my family and I was concerned for his safety that night and I knew I had to come up with another plan. Upon arrival the next morning my husband was in the dining room. And had a couple of.buddies visiting him. After they left He ask if I would take him back to his room. He Told me he had had a bowel movement earlier and tried to clean himself. He didn't because of not being able to move the surgery side. I said that was uncalled for and rang for a nurses aide. I can't remember her name but I surely would recognize her. She finally came and she had gloves in both hands. I said my husband needed assistance with wiping his butt and didn't get cleaned. He had done the best he could. She looked at me and said I dont want any poop on my hands and I'm sure you don't either. I said so you are telling me you will.not clean my husband especially after sitting in it. She then said to me that she could get me some soapy water and a wash cloth and I could clean him. I told her that was unacceptable and that I was paying her salary and that I would reporting her actions to her supervisor as well has to Medicare. She really did not care what I said and left the room. I cleaned my husband and told him to get out of that room and go into the dining room that I had forgot something at home and I would be right back. As I went out the door I starting. Crying not just for my husband but for all the residents in Marka that couldn't talk for themselves. So I contacted another nursing facility with phisycial therapy that was highly recommend. By that after noon we moved him out of that hell hole place (not fit for a dog) to the other facility where he was welcomed and had wonderful care and great physical therapy. This experience was in December 2018 and today in the mail I received a statement from Marka. Medicare and our supplement has paid for everything for my husband medical bills so I don't know why after 8 months they send a bill with no explanation. They actually expect me to pay. It doesn't even state what the charge is for. Now I have to wait until Monday to call them again. I did call today (Friday) and Renee said she would return my call. Well I called at 4:00pm our time and at 4:30pm I called back and was told she had left for the day. So it isn't just the nurses aides but no one seems to want to be very professional. They just do not care about the residents. So sad and I am telling everyone about my experience. Which they can not believe. Please do not put your husband, wife, mother or father in this facility.

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
