    Please do not ever come here to work or have family members under the care of disgruntled, disrespectful, discrimination of the so called supervisors, and nurses. I have never been subjected to such rude behavior from another human being especially a supervisor. Who is suppose to be upholding face of the inner runnings of a nursing care facility. So if you want disrespect and to be completely degraded as a human being, this for sure would be the place. Absolutely applaud. They need to do some house cleaning of these long term supervisors who no longer should hold power over others. Especially when not using it for the right reasons.

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
