    I am an RN. My mother required hospitalization after a couple of weeks at Wittenberg Nursing home due to renal failure, brought on by dehydration (not being offered sips of water) and extreme bowel distention (brought on by untreated constipation). I found the staff to be unresponsive to her needs and dangerously aware of the signs and symptoms of relatively basic nursing diagnoses.

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
