    Palmer Healthcare has come a long way. There has a tun if cosmetic repair. I do have to say that the CNA's need to be followed up on a lot more. Over all this place looks and smells better then before I am happy to say that this is the best D.O.N. They have ever had. Keep up the good work Maintenance

    Bad place to work and send your loved ones to reside, nurses are rude, I have witnessed CNAs not wash their handd, and not wear gloves while working there for the 6 months i was there, under staffed, very high turn over and nurse was fired for verbal abuse of resident. Do not send your loves ones here.

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
