    If there was a negative star Id give it. Clueless administration, indifferent and angry aids, horrible smell and unclean. Dont sit on the guest chairs!! The business has gone through a continual rotation of management none seem invested on providing dignified or compassionate care. A terrible, run down and under staffed place.

    Park Ave Health Center is a wonderful and caring facility for the aging. The small facility and one to one interactions with residents, makes this elder caring facility...a welcoming resolution to any family. My mom is treated well, and the staff there care for her like their own. The facility is always clean, the food is good....fresh coffee and tea, are free. Check out this unique living home for your loved one. We are very happy!

    My grandmother has been here for years now, I couldn't imagine her anywhere else. I care very much about her and want the best for her as anyone would for their loved one, I never would have imagined her socializing and being as happy as she is in a nursing home. I Couldn't be happier and I know she is well taken care of here. She enjoys activities, the food and nursing staff and rehab services is very attentive to her.

    I like the way the rehab staff is making me stronger so I can go home. I like the nurses and James the nurse is great to the patients and everyone in the building. People working here look happy while they work! Alison always keeps eyes and ears open for someone who might need help-she helped me find my missing shirt!

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
