    CNA's and nurses do not even care about the residents. They leave them sitting in their own shit for hours. When residents pull their call lights for help, nurses let it ring for about an hour to then help them later. Mind you, while its ringing, a resident could possibly be in danger. My boyfriend, Sister, and I all worked there for only about a month or 2. The boss has preferences on certain employees. She let's go of people who actually care about their job, and keeps employees who are only there for the money and don't give a shit about the residents. That is why my boyfriend and sister left that job too, terrible place to work at. And the place is very dirty.

    This place is one of the worst shitholes I've ever seen. The facility is filthy, the staff is lazy and disinterested, I saw a man laying on the floor on the hall and when I told the staff they're response was "he likes to lay on the floor so we let him" seriously?? There's no way in hell I'd let anyone I love stay in this toilet.

    our experience was leas than satisfactory. my daughter with a brain injury who is capable of functioning and had a hard time excepting her state went to lowell and was put in diapers and was extremely drugged. when she came home her toenails where growing into her toes. they were never cut also her clothes were dirty as was her hair. this facility should be investigated. Finally, the summary was a laughing stock. This company is money grubby and do not care about the well being of their residence. and i noticed that the rating for this facility leaves alot to be desired.

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.
