    The place is really nice the staff is very friendly and helpful and caring. This is very well maintained landscaped and decorated it seems that the staff does everything they can to accommodate you and your needs. I've only been here for 3 days but so far I have been very comfortable very well taken care of having a few problems with a new Pharmacy as in that have no complaints the physical rehabilitation team is excellent everyone has good sense of humor which is important in the healing process. I'm not at Liberty to comment on the nursing home side it's on a different wing but when I ventured that way checking everything out it was very clean smelled nice the staff over there seemed very friendly as well I would have no problem recommending this place to anyone and I'm pretty picky I would have given it a five-star except for the pharmacy department but that is not their fault of course their contracted out. I hope my stay is short can walk out of here soon no place like home but if not I'm sure they will have me on my feet because of the atmosphere makes you want to work , without it seeming like too much work if that makes sense.

    This is a nursing facility for long term or rehabilitation. It has modern design. I noticed it was clean and nursing staff were very helpful to residents and visitors. This facility has good security and is well lit at night. The food served looked good. The residents appeared happy. This was an overall good experience.

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
