    My Step-Dad stayed here, and loved it! He loved the Bingo, and church services. He said the food was good, and the "Girls" take such good care of him. The staff was always helpful and friendly. Serenity takes care of these patients in such a loving way.... God Bless Indiana Veterans Home

    My Father almost 86 has been very independent and this past week we took there due to failing health afraid to leave him alone. He had been at another nursing home in Lafayette that was beautiful on the in side but their care was horrible. We made a quick move the next wk to the VA and the people greeted us right off the elevator to order him a dinner plate, welcome us and they have been amazing. My Father is still a bit uneasy about the transition but he's eating good food, being cared for and getting stronger each day. I was very nervous about taking him there but it has been a great move so far.

    I've worked in 20+ nursing homes in the last 12 years all over Indiana. And THIS was by far my favorite job. They did things by the book here, and didn't put up with abuse of patients. Lots of caring staff who give these people lots of love!

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
