    My uncle is dying by choice in The Carriage Hill Nursing Home and Hospice. He wants to die naturally. He has a colostomy and the staff does not know how to change the bag. He lies in his feces until some aide comes to change the bag incompetently. I am there once or twice daily and this happens at least once a day. The head Nurse tells me everyone there knows how to change the bag. He is in danger of serious infection. Last night his bag was changed and leaked three times. He wound up with his feet on the floor and he is unable to walk and his bones are brittle. Carriage Hill will kill him before his wish to starve does. I waited until he passed before reporting Carriage Hill. When I received feedback from nurse sent to verify my complaints, documents had been altered, dates were changed, meetings were invented. I urge you to document every day of your relative's stay. My 99 y.o. uncle had days when he screamed for morphine and none was given. I went to an administrator and he looked up the prescription. His PNR said he was to have morphine whenever he needed it. He suffered needlessly.

    This place is a racket. When we brought my aging Mother-In-Law there for rehab after she suffered a bad fall, they neglected to inform us that Medicare would only cover 21 days. Then they scheduled her stay for 22 days, and informed us during the final discharge process that we owed an additional fee for the time not covered by Medicare. She could have left a week sooner, in terms of her condition, but they encouraged us to leave her for another week, without advising us that an additional charge would be incurred. When we tried to find the appropriate staff to resolve our dispute, we were given the run around. As far as I am concerned they are a bunch of crooks.

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
