    This place is worse than hell. My mom was released 4 days ago. Short staffed is an understatement. The staff they had didn't know what the hell they were doing so, they did nothing. They released her when they decided there was nothing else they could do for her. She had just had a pacemaker implanted and most of the time waited until most of the day was gone before they took her vitals. Her heart rate kept dropping and they kept telling her it was too slow. Whenever she called for help no one came. We were terrified the whole time she was there. They were supposed to help her build up enough strength to go home. They walked her out to the hall 2 times period in a whole week. She could have died there.The food isn't good enough for rats. She won't be back.

    Absolute hell-hole. How they can claim to care, and hold onto the facade of some kind of Christian caring is amazing to me. My father was there for three days. He was totally ignored for three days. Staffing was well below required levels, and the few who were there spoke very little English. I managed to find one nurse in the entire building on a Sunday, and she looked totally shell-shocked. I wouldn't send my worst enemy there. They specialize in nothing but mistreatment. And rude? I have never been spoken too like that in my life!

    I'm not sure about the 1 star reviews here but I have a loved one in there now and I have no complaints... People who complain are generally the ones cause the initial problem and then are vocal about it..

    This place is a hell hole. There's a few gems here and there, but the majority of the staff treat patients and family like cattle. Super rude. The fifth floor is especially bad. DO NOT leave your loved ones here under any circumstances.

    This place is very hit or miss. One floor may have good staff another won't. The last time my dad was there is was so bad. Mismanagement, mistreatment. We had a family member go there every day to monitor what was happening. I would never let him be in there again

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
