    My grandma has stood here before and she was very happy and loved staying here. The place was very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and caring while my grandma was here. My grandma was well taken care of when she stood here.

    My great grandmother just passed away while in the care of this place. Not even within 24 hours when my family arrived to clean out her room they had already done it without contacting any family members. Some stuff was outside and some in a closet. They had broken into a locked cabinet that we had a key too. We hadn't even contacted them and told them of her passing. Before her death she even told someone she suspected them of stealing her personal belongings. If you really care for your loved one this is not the place to put them.

    My grandma has been staying here for a few months now and I can tell she is very happy. The facility is very nice and I can tell the staff really takes care of her.

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
