    I called this organization and requested some help after being Diagnosed withProstate cancer and having surgery and could not walk my dog. After seeing a commercial for this organization showing that someone came to a patient's home to dog I called them and they Informed me that they do not provide that kind of service. How can an organization such as status have a commercial on TV advertising it services and when you call they don't provide them. I am very disappointed in me the good Samaritan society

    After a rough start they have proved themselves to be really good at what they do. Although it took some action my dad is now involved and actively participating in social events that work his mind and keep him from being isolated as one of the youngest residents. He has had huge challenges to over come and I am grateful that action has been taken to improve his quality of life. The nurses and staff have gotten him medical assistance timely and for that I am so very very Thankful! ?

    My dear 92 year old friend had a very sever stroke and came here after a stay at another facility. What a remarkable difference! Here the staff are so kind, friendly and helpful. The rooms are private with large windows to see the bird feeders and grounds. I am so glad the family was able to find such a loving and caring facility. My friend has made lots of improvement and I know the people and atmosphere has been an important part of the progress. Thank you for all the you do.

    My mom is here and we were a little worried how things would go and they are great. The people who work there are so nice and mom said the food is good. We feel so good to know she is safe and everyone is looking out for her.

    My wife was at Good Samaritan for about 2 weeks prior to contacting pneumonia and passing, during her short time at G.S.I could not have been more pleased with the care she was shown by the fine and professional staff. My wife was treated with respect at all times and her comfort was always a primary concern. I would say that GMS should be very proud of their staff and management, I know I am. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart and God Bless. Robert Biastock and family

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.
