    Last December 9th my dad was transferred from MGH for a 2 week stay while he was waiting for heart surgery. Although MGH sent his chart, clearly stating not to sedate him, the staff did and continued throughout his stay. On the Sunday before he passed, he was not aware or responsive. His dinner never came and when I went to the nurses station, I was ignored and over heard a nurse talking about Dad, stating he was due for labs, no one responded and when questioned, I was told they would be done later, they never were! Monday an ambulance was called, against Life One's recommendation. Dad was taken to Brockton in critical condition, in fact, according to the attending Physician, the worst he had ever seen. The Dr asked where he was being taken care of and when told, he stated he would NEVER SEND ANYONE THERE! That was again on Monday, 6 days after being at Life One. Dad passed away on the 16th from pure neglect and unnecessary drugs. I would NEVER, EVER recommend this facility to anyone unless you want your loved ones to die!

    I have currently spent 8 days at facility for rehabilitation after a total knee replacement. There are some exceptional staff members that went out of their way to make my rehab as beneficial for my situation. Ellen, Nurse of 2nd Floor (east) was such a caring professional individual who made my difficulty with meds and meals so much more tolerable. She was able to tell when I was in need of more personal/medical care. She perfected 'ice bags' that reduced my pain and discomfort. Stella,my Nurse's Aide was very competent and caring. Stella assisted with my first post shower and was very courteous and she showed compassion when I was throwing up for the umteenth time, by rubbing my back and speaking quietly to calm me down. Stella had many patients but continued to moved through her work with individual attention to each of us, making us all feel important and not rushed.Thumbs up for superb care!

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.
