Overall Rating 2.2 / 5.0 ★★★★★

  • ★★★★★ 9 months ago

    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.

  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
