Overall Rating 4.2 / 5.0 ★★★★★

  • ★★★★★ 8 months ago

    The support from staff is amazing.

  • ★★★★★ 3 years ago

    Solid nursing home, rated 5 stars by the government-run Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The Executive Director, Steve Copper, is great and really open to innovation and new ways of improving quality of care through technology. He takes a personal interest in the residents, and I'm sure would be a good person to talk with if you are looking for a place for your parents/grandparents etc.

    This facility is awful. Te nursing staff is rude and absolutely lazy. My family member was there for rehab on his hip and obviously could not walk to the bathroom. He was constantly told to wait or no one could help him. The phsical therapists were very good. The director of nursing is no better. She ignores all calls and has no control over her staff. The LPN on duty constantly ignored notes from the hospital on the care to be given.

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
