    If you need to have a loved one in a nursing home. Please don't send them here. The staff is incompetent and they don't care!My mom has been there for over 1 year and still I have to tell them to wash her after being diaper changed. My mom is on oxygen 24/7 and the staff has messed up the amount to give her time after time. In all a terrible place all around! They don't deserve even 1 star!

    Mother was here a week. Left in a wheelchair for hours when she requested to go to bed, they tossed her legs onto the bed once they eventually DID help her. Left dehydrated and looking worse than ever. She had no real space of her own, her room mate was given all the storage space (4 wardrobes plus) and she only had one side table to the far corner. The television (her only real form of entertainment) was left on said table, unplugged and out of her way. They couldn't move it because the other Room mates 4th wardrobe was placed where that would normally be. They were unconcerned when her blood sugar hit 46 (very low) instead of seeming proactive. They apparently gave her meds that according to her she had just taken earlier. The staff (apart from their case manager) all seemed very indifferent towards patients. Food looked like the worst possible hospital food you've ever seen (that's saying something). I'd be less concerned if she left there in better condition for rehab than she came into it, as LifeCare in raynham had done considerably.

    I'm happy that my mother lives here and that she's happy and in good spirits. Thanks Wedgemere ?

    My father in law was here for a year and they were amazing to him. Everyone treated him with kindness and respect. He liked everyone there also. I have absolutely no complaints about Wedgemere at all. They did a great job taking care of him. Whenever I asked a question, they did all they could to get me the answer if they didn't know it.

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
