    I was there for a toe operation, on August 21. One day in and out I was told. After the surgery the pain med were not working. The nurse kept asking me in a accusing tone, are you sure you don't take narcotics at home? Insult! It was around 7 pm, I asked to asked my doctor if I could stay overnight. The nurse came back told me he said no. Later b when I spoke to the doctor he said yes! Around 9 still in severe pain no medicine working. I told the nurse I Was staying. My daughter had gone home and due to the storm we had no electricity. So then the nurse sent in a house supervisor. She said it would be fraud to keep me, and my personal problems weren't there problem. So I had to go home!!

    Had all 4 of my children at Northfield Hospital and loved everything about it. Especially the double beds! All the nurses were kind, sensitive and supportive. My Family Practice Doc and the Women's Health Center Docs worked seamlessly together. We checked our itemized bill against a friend's bill from another hospital and Northfield was quite a bit less. Quality of care excellent!

    Went to ER with severe neck spasm. Was refused help with pain, was told this was directly related to the fact that I was a pain clinic patient. I go to a pain clinic for chronic lower back pain (have had 6 surgeries on back and also am on disability because of pain). Even though my visit had nothing to do with my back, I was told by the ER doctor that if I ever returned again saying I had neck or back pain I would be refused help. Anyone who is in a similar situation as I am, I would NEVER go to this place again.

    We have a child who is sick more than usual. She has been to the ER at Northfield several times now. Each time we never had to wait, which is really nice when you have a sick and scared toddler. On our last ER visit she had to be admitted. All of the doctors, nurses, and ancillary staff were very caring and helpful. They were very thorough, and erred on the side of caution to make sure they didn't miss anything. We are grateful to the staff and we have never had a bad experience with this hospital. We have other options for care, but we will continue to choose Northfield based on the care we've all received there so far. One caveat: We have not used their regular clinics, only after hours emergency care.

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
