    This place is absolutely WORTHLESS. Our father has been there for about a month and they have done nothing but neglect him from day one. They put him in a room with someone who clearly needs to be by himself due to his condition and keeps our father up all night so he gets NO sleep. This man has been there over two years and constantly gives the staff trouble so you would think they would know not to place anyone with him yet they just went ahead and put our father there even though when we went to visit him there were PLENTY of open rooms available. They have not once, not twice, but THREE times failed to take him to a follow up appointment that is crucial to his health and had nothing to say for themselves except "well we didn't have an appointment down in the book" - ummm THEY are the ones that gave US the info for the appts! Our father has stated that it sometimes takes up to 2 hours before someone comes in to assist him when he is needing help and says the food is so terrible that he refuses to even eat. They have given him incorrect medications several times and once when he was having back pain asked for a heating pad and they stated they didn't have those. How can you be a nursing facility with physical therapy and not have a heating pad?!?! His sheets have maybe been cleaned once since he's been there, he has had no physical therapy which is crucial to his healing process and we constantly see nurses just standing around doing nothing. Do not let your loved one stay here it is not worth it and the place smells terrible like it hasn't been cleaned in ages.

    This facility is poorly run which translates into poor care for the resident. Lack of communication between caregivers/staff impacts the quality of care for the resident which seemed to be a constant issue I was dealing with. My relative that was unfortunately staying there needed high level of care and these needs, although staff did attempt to meet them, was unable to give her the care that would be considered acceptable. There were nice people on staff who wanted to do well, which is unfortunate that they also struggled at their job due to being poorly run. I believe due to less than adequate staffing, high turnover in staff, poor communication and poor administration of facility made not only my relatives experience very negative but also the staff struggled as well. During the 6 months my relative was there she became dehydrated, had impacted bowels, bed sores, and UTI's not to mention lack of medications being administered properly and also lack of showers regularly. This was happening even though I was there 5 times a week and requesting things be done better. I would not recommend this facility unless and until significant changes in the way the facility is run. My relative has been moved and after a month of clearing up all the medical issues that compounded from the stay at Tonganoxie, she is doing great now.

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
