    A family member of mine resides here. He is content and doesn't have any complaints of the staff or environment. Just petty issues with other tenants. Staff members that I work with are extremely friendly, caring, compassionate, understanding, and are sensitive to the nature of the circumstances.

    Because I had to click a star to write a review, this is the only reason they got one from me and my family. My mother visits my Grandmother 2-3 times a week and in almost every visit my Grandmother is soaking wet down to her bed to her socks. It reeks of urine. You can smell it from the doorway of her room. They are not helping changing her. This and very personal recent event I cannot write about at this time. I am working on getting her out of this home. I would suggest you all do the same. I feel very strongly that my loved one is not being properly cared for. ??

    They are very responsive to the residents' famly and the medical staff clearly care about providing good medical services to the residents. It's comforting to know that my mother's health and safety are in good hands.

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
