    Please read. We really wanted to trust that this nursing home would take good care of our mom. But there were multiple incidents of neglect and improper care. First , her reoccurring diaper rash. She would get open sores. Extremely painful. We learned from St Luke's hospital that if the staff at Care one would take proper procedures , it would go away. But apparently they were NOT changing her diaper frequently, allowing our mother to sit in a soiled diaper. Another incident .... She was left in her wheel chair unattended , and fell out on to her head suffering a nasty hit to the hard tile floor. She had to be rushed to the hospital. While during her stay at the hospital, her diaper rash cleared up again due to the nurses making sure her diaper was changed frequently and using proper barrier cream, and my mom was doing very well and looked very good. When she returned to Care one , the second day she was VERY groggy. Third day I knew something was wrong. The staff at Care one insisted she was fine. I insisted she wasn't. They made me feel I was being "difficult ". But I knew something was wrong. I insisted they call an ambulance and later found out from the physicians at St. Luke's that my mother was very dehydrated !!! After giving her IV fluids she perked right up and felt better again. I don't understand why the staff at care one did not pick up on that but I realize how extremely dangerous it was and that her organs would've start shutting down had this gone unnoticed by me. I do not recommend this facility.

    This place is terrible they have terrible staffing issues. I went their for an interview & they had me waiting for over an hr. When i walked in the back i just saw workers sitting around & talking. The lafy had an attitude from hell. It was just very unprofessional & not somewhere i would want to work or have my loved one at.

    DO NOT send your loved ones here!!!!!!! This place is a NIGHTMARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you have a family member staying here and they unfortunately pass away, these so called "people", will not even tell you where your loved one was sent....... I use to visit my aunt there all the time, they seen my face in there all the time that made no difference when she passed. And the way they broke the news was "She hasn't been her in over a month"... Sorry but last time I checked, a little compassion goes a long way.

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
