    I have been very impressed with the Barron Center. My mother has been disabled with dementia for three years. She was placed in a private home initially but we quickly learned that they were not sufficiently trained to cope with higher level dementia patients. They were incompetent. My mother was transferred to the Barron Center. What a difference!! Trained, compassionate care-givers. Yes, it is a state run institution; the wall paper isn't new, the floors are stained; but the care-givers are compassionate and respond remarkably well to their charges. My mother has done well there.

    My father was here for a year and a half. I hated the place. It was very dirty. They had cloth seats for the patients to sit in out in the main room. I can not understand why they had chairs that were not washable in a place where people were incontinent? Every chair was stained and nasty! My fathers clothes were missing shoes were missing, his glasses were missing for 2 weeks, they even lost his teeth. There were times that I went there and didn't see anyone that was suppose to be taking care of the patients for 45 minutes. One time a caretaker was crying saying she could not handle the patients. My father was in the Alzheimer unit. My father got hit by other patients and there was one patient that would not leave the other patients alone. She would lift her shirt and expose herself, she would touch men in an inappropriate way. When I complained the answer I got was that she didn't know what she was doing and no they couldn't keep her away from other patients. If you have any other choice do not put your love one in this place! .

    I was a rehab patient here for a couple of weeks recently and I have to tell you, this place knocked my socks off. Having stayed in another local rehab facility about a year ago, I feel I have the basis for a good comparison. We're talking night and day. High points for me were: most of the rooms are private; big screen TV with remote; excellent and well prepared food. Also, a knowledgeable and caring staff; everyone, including the cleaning people were so willing to be helpful. And last but not least the place is SO CLEAN!! And that's just the tip of the iceberg as there were lots of pleasant ways to pass the time besides watching television. There is a hair stylist who will cut your hair (men and women) and do pretty much anything basic. There is a one-person whirlpool that I enjoyed several times during my stay. I also loved having access to a gorgeous and top of the line computer that is hooked up to cable and lightening fast. In short, my stay here was most pleasant and I would recommend it to everyone. I can't see how you could be disappointed unless you're impossible to please and expect a five-star hotel.

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
