    The staff is amazing, they take care of my stepfather with so much love and respect words can't describe they love I have for the staff. I walked into this place in fell in love with so many veterans. The love in there eyes is easy to see. I thank them for what they do every day I'm there.

    I can't say enough good things about this place. My dad spent his final two weeks at this home and they treated him with such kindness and respect. The nurses were so professional and patient with him. When my dad's body was removed from his room, the veterans lined up along the hall and saluted and the nurses held their hands over their hearts. It was something I will never forget.

    My 91 yr old father-in-law was cared for with such kindness, dignity, and contagious joy during his stay here following a second hip replacement surgery. The nurses, CNA's, and LCSW were out of this world! Their gentleness and smiles eased his pain, and let him drift off to sleep grinning. They worked beautifully with our caregiving family, always with an inexhaustible compassion, generosity of time and spirit, and cooperation (very notably with the 17 yr old grandson caregiver). Never patronizing nor "too busy" to address our questions and his needs. I was impressed with the careful attention to detail that goes into every aspect of the veterans' care, such as food selections that remove challenge and frustration from the struggle of self-feeding. I appreciated the Occupational Therapist talking me through what she was seeing and working on with him. The LCSW worked so diligently to navigate and quickly coordinate his transfer of care when it was time. The residents themselves are a delight! Such endearing, happy souls -- I cried when it was time to leave more than once. Without hesitation, this is the place I wish for myself and elderly family to spend our final time when our needs can no longer be safely managed at home. THANK YOU Molly, Roberta, Bethany, and crew! You are precious to us! God bless you! with love from the Scotts

    My family and I have volunteered at MVH Augusta, sharing music and visiting with the residents. I also visited MVH Augusta several years ago with a group a co-workers and had a great time sharing a meal with and visiting with the veterans. MVH Augusta won a national silver quality award, and it shows. These people simply care about veterans, and care about the quality of the care that veterans receive in their home.

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
