    Lorien of Columbia is a wonderful skilled nursing facility. We work with many families who have received care at Lorien and they have given us great feedback. The staff is knowledgeable, skilled and friendly. Their convienent location has skilled nursing & rehab, onsite dialysis, assisted living and doctors offices.

    When you hear nursing home you think this is where I'm sending Mom or Dad to die. This is totally not the case with this facility. I did read several reviews before I had my mom sent to Lorien from Ho Co hosp. and I have to admit I was concerned but once she was settled in I was amazed at the how well my mother did here. She had a heart attack and a fall so she received therapy while on the rehab unit. The staff was helpful, the food wasn't too bad and she even made it to the dining room for some of the activities that were being held for the long term residents. The nursing staff that took care of my mother were all great and she is a handful! My mother has since come home and is doing well thanks to the help of Lorien during her recovery. I hope this is as helpful as some of the lessor reviews that are posted to Google - they really don't do this place justice.

    Had a relative in this place recently and I have nothing but good things to say about this facility. Everyone was just super, I would go there in a heartbeat if I had to..... God bless all the beautiful employees who help to make those live's special who can't help themselves, I was quite impressed with this place, considering I've seen a couple other places that were horrible......

    Very very unpleasant, dissatisfying service. Night shift staffs are worse than you can imagine. They don't do their jobs right. I stay there for only 1~3 hours a day and even during that short amount of time, I encounter with so many issues. It's not like I'm so picky. It's just basic stuff like leave oxygen open, change food, and suction. They can't even do these basic duties right. I do agree that SOME staffs are nice and knows what they're doing, but MOST staffs are worst. When we tell them there's problem, they grins and seems irritated. No apologies, all you hear is "I don't know." They seems okay during daytime but you don't know until you check back how your family is being treated at night time. When you are touring this place you should seriously consider spending time talking to the patient's family if you can before you make decision because I regret admitting my family in this place. Planning to transfer him to other facility if I can.

    Deplorable. My mom came here after 5 weeks in the hospital. In one week, we dealt with the SMELL of this place (urine), incompetent staff who didn't react when alarms went off in the rooms, and uncaring staff who yelled at my mom in the middle of the night when her pillow fell on the floor. Really? The owner should start paying attention. When we moved my Mom to Lorien Mt. Airy, it was a totally different experience.

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.
