    Very understaffed!!!! Management/county doesn't seem to care. Their disdane reflects in the staff. As in all places, some good & some bad staff. Staff can only do so much with the staff that is there. Lots of call offs. Not a supportive place. Will lie to you to get you in & then wants nothing to do with you.

    My mom was a resident of riverbluff for almost four years! I can't tell you how VERY disappointed I am with them. The incompetence of this nursing home is staggering! First my 96 year old mom started to fall out of her wheelchair face first... The CNA saw her falling but went into another room and my mom fell face first out of her wheelchair and received a HUGE hematoma on her forehead! Secondly...while visiting my mom in the nursing home... I heard her making a gurgling sound... And insisted my mom go to the hospital... I told the nurse practitioner Jody that my om had pneumonia. Jody checked her lungs and stated her lungs were clear. The next day I received a call from the nursing home saying mom's health had drastically detiorated and asked me what they should do... I told them... ADMIT HER IN THE HOSPITAL! After 45 minutes the doctor called stating my mom is very I'll and he didn't think she'd make it. When I got to the hospital... My poor mom is struggling to breathe and had full blown pneumonia! I made the difficult decision to just keep her comfortable and my mom passed away on January 2, 2018...I was there right by her side. I find it interesting that just two days prior that incompetent nurse practitioner Jody found her lungs clear... Yet cause of death was pneumonia and sepsis... As the nursing home NEVER told me her kidneys had failed! By law they have to tell me EVERYTHING! IF ANYONE OUT THERE IS THINKING OF PUTTING THEIR LOVED ONE IN THIS NURSING HOME... DON'T.... read what they did to my mom! THIS PLACE NEEDS TO SHUT DOWN!!!

    Loved the residents and most of the people i worked with on PM shift but they did have quite a few people that are rude and uncaring! Their night shift nurses are lazy, rude and nit picky! CNAs on night shift would hide and sleep while the staffing CNAs answered all the call lights and nurses chased them around complaining! Not a place I would allow my grandma or grandpa to go but not the worst place I've been.

    The home has 170 residents and all look like they are well cared for. People were happy and i didnt smell anything that would make me worry.

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
