    One of the worst experiences I've ever experienced. Family member could not have the care needed. "SHORT STAFFED" They put my family member in a wheelchair, after they fell at this facility. Their idea of a 1 to 1 is sitting the patient behind a table, (to keep them from getting up) or at the nursing station. Even with a suspected broken hip. Unreal!

    Some of the aids are decent.. Thre rest came from Concord so go figure. They only have one social worker who clearly has no idea what she suppose to do.. My mom was transferred and was sent with no info on her care for the new facility. Yes its modern than most places but has the staff of any other run down care place.. They never ever answer the phone. Only reason they get 2 stars cause of great parking! Everyone is there for a check! So if you love whomever may need assistance look further!

    My dad has been here for about a week now. Morning staff are typically pretty great and helpful, but overnight staff are the worst. Some nurses are very rude and will ignore you and some complained when he needed assistance with cleaning/taking care of himself during his first couple of nights. Multiple times during his stay, he has had to wait 30+ minutes after pushing the call button for someone to come answer his call. His food has been cold when brought to his room. And honestly, so much more. It's a nice looking facility but the staff make it a horrible experience. Don't send your loved ones here.

    Be ware!! This facility is NOT associated with KU Hospital!!! Due to its proximity to the main campus, people are confused that this is related and IT IS NOT. In fact, KUMC should take it off of all recommendations to its patients needing rehabilitation. Our elderly neighbor spent a considerable amount of time here. Employee turnover seems quite high leading to inconsistent, sub-par care. (The food service was excellent, however, and those serving it were welcoming). Our friend has no family and was advocating for himself when he told us that he was not being bathed. We have stepped in to make sure that he is cared for and he has since been moved. Through no fault of ours, his transfer to a long-term care facility was delayed because necessary state paperwork was not filed in a prompt manner. The facility--including the ADMINISTRATOR--shirked this responsibility and proceeded with the charges for this extra time, denying a credit!! We were disgusted. And we worry for those who can't speak up and advocate for themselves. The other fellow residents' concern and smiling faces through their own rehabilitation challenges were the bright spot! God love them. Kansas City Transitional Care should be ashamed.

    Keep your loved ones away from this facility. This place may look nice but the medical care is a joke. My dad has been here for 3 weeks and has only taken a shower because my mom helped him. They do not bathe the residents, they are late with medications, they never answer the call buttons. The doctor, social worker, nurse practitioner on staff are worthless. It's sad when Jennifer, the social worker, tells you that she has 90 cases of patients to take care of and admits that she isn't doing a good of a job as she can. I am reporting them to the state of Kansas today. If your loved one is at this facility, move them right away. My dad has 2 bed sores and they only just yesterday got him a bed. Run far away from this facility.

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
