    I recovered from knee replacement surgery here,and had a very positive experience, especially with PT. I had some medical students helping me dress my incision and was very impressed with them and the nursing staff supervising them. I was able to walk outside and enjoyed socializing with other patients and the staff. We were treated to a barbeque one day, and food in the dining room and in my room was good. Kudos to the acting director, who, as I understand it, donated outdoor furniture, lawn chairs, a picnic table, and planters for flowers. The activities room downstairs has lots of fun available, tv, DVD's, CD's, and a motivated activities director who is busy all day, every day, creating fun crafts, providing live musicians, and keeping people active. The only negative comment I would make is that pills were given to me all at once which made me nauseous. However, sfter I spoke with the supervising nurse and dpctor, we worked out a way to take them a few at a time. For me it was a positive experience, and kept my family from being burdened. ?

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
