    My 89 year old dad experienced neglect and abuse by some staff. And then we nearly lost him to blood clots in his lungs as no one was concerned about a sudden worsening cough over a period of days and his oxygen levels dropped, yet t took family intervention to get my dad to the ER.

    When I visited the facility, in the building was nice, clean and bright. Staff and nurses all seemed very knowledgeable and helpful. Most of all the patients looked happy to be there...

    My words can't express how great they've treated my sister here. She has a disability for many years, and my family and I finally decided to put her in a nursing facility because it's getting too much for us at my brother's and my age. They've been so kind to her and good. She's always kept clean and she's THANKFULLY always doing something, whether in the recreation hall to the dining room. We love the fact that she even has her own friends now!!

    This facility is AMAZING!!!! I would not hesitate to put my father there long term if needed. He was able to come home after a short stay in Rehab but if needed I will definitely choose Gardner Rehab for his home. The staff was very nice and supportive. They made sure we had everything we could possibly need before being sent home. It was also nice to see Upper Management on the floors helping their staff and checking in on their residents. I did check out the long term floors, they are not updated like rehab but I am told that is in the works. Very impressed!

    Though my family didn't want to place our mom into a nursing home, it become apparent we needed to. We met with Gardner and took a tour. I must say the facility is lovely. The woman giving the tour was very informative and helpful. So far my mother's stay has been amazing. We have seen multiple higher ups present on the floor, checking in and even helping with the residents. I must say overall very impressed and highly recommended!!

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
