    I went there (1/26/2020) to see my father who terminally ill and the staff was so nice. He tells me his nurse was coming in frequently to check on him and make sure he is comfortable. I can't thank the staff enough for the kindness they are showing my dad.

    Will never use this facility again. Ive been to this same hospital many years in a row with different physicians to receive FREE yearly std screenings. This year should have been no different, except i was paired with a crook named grant coauette who proceeded to code my typically free routine services as 'diagnostic' which made my free service cost over $500. Billing said it was up to his office to recode it and his office refused to change it.

    Came here because refuse to go to Sanford ever. Was hoping for a better result as this hospital used to be good. Found that on all provider (Leonard) was very rude and condescending. I even apologized for her having to come in and she still raised her eyebrows and continued to be rude the last I checked they were paid to be on call.

    We've been doctoring with Essentia since we moved up here in 2011. From our children's needs to going through a second trimester miscarriage to the birth of our youngest, we have had nothing but positive experiences. I won't go anywhere else.

    I have severe body-image issues and weight issues. I was not given an option to opt out of being weighed, I was not asked if I am comfortable being weighed. I was triggered immediately and have been upset and crying all afternoon because of this. I felt extremely embarrassed and immediately upset, but I didn't know if opting out was an option.

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
