    Transferred my Mom down here from Michigan City. What a difference! My husband and I checked it out first before the transfer, walked in, unannounced. We were immediately greeted by a very happy smiling staff, got a tour of facility. Every one, staff and residents alike looked happy, cheerful, friendly. Very clean, caring environment. Food is great! My Mom is very happy there! I like the "I can do" attitude! Great place!

    After my car accident this was the only place willing to take me for rehab. The staff was amazing and some of the residents have become family to me. Almost 2 years later I still go back almost every month to visit and bring goodies.

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
