    My Mother is there and frankly I do not care for where she is at. She should beable to walk more and more activities because she knows what is going on. If was not for Kurt my Mom would be worse. The aids are kinder then nurses. There one nurse my mom really likes. I just do not think it is big enough. They should have better walking space. I know my family would not put me in there. My Mom was put in to early and has caused a lot of family problems. The little room we see Mom in the floor is so dirty our shoes stuck to floor. You can see it. There rooms are in bad shape and need painting and new furniture. Tv barely works. Kurt and the gazebo is nice and big eating area and tv area. My Mom needs better bathing habits. She stinks from BO and needs to put on deodorant and body spray that we have furnished. Atmosphere is quiet and boring.

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
