    My dad was moved from Red Wing to this facility and I have to say the nurses and staff are so nice. We call and check on our father and they give us a thorough update. My dad is very comfortable and we are pleased with everything they do for our family and father. Caring staff, nice people, and they got the necessary equipment within minutes. Highly recommended!

    I would never have believed that such a place existed in our day & age, much less that it was in operation only a mile or so from where I lived. Do not go here or allow anyone you care about to go here under any conditions - the standards of care are beyond atrocious.

    This place should have been shut down a long time ago. The neglect and borderline abuse that takes place here is unforgivable. The place is crowded and understaffed and residents call buttons are ignored regularly. Residents are treated like cattle. Meds are missed or in my grandmothers case discontinued without warrant. They stopped antibiotics for pneumonia she contracted after sleeping in a freezing room late in the fall with open windows after we asked repeatedly that they be kept shut at night. They took it upon themselves to stop meds after two days saying she requested to no longer be medicated. Thier justification was that she was asked whether she wanted to continue meds and she said no. She was so mad when we asked her if she refused medication for her pneumonia! So was my uncle who had a lawyer on the line in our meeting with them. She "never refused medication in her life and wasn't about to start with pneumonia meds" was what she told us and her mind was perfectly intact, she was there due to extreme weakness and being unable to care for herself physically following a broken hip. If we hadn't pushed to find out that they stopped her meds which they skated around actually divulging initially she would have died years before she did due to a curable illness. This place is neglegent. On her last day a few of the staff also circled a tiny elderly man and were psychologically bullying him about hitting another resident. They didn't just remove him or talk to him there were three of them in a circle around him yelling. It was the saddest thing I've ever seen. None of these people are trained or have the compassion let alone common sense to deal with the elderly or vulnerable. They act like they work with hard to deal with inmates. Visit some of the residents in this and other places and not just the floor they take you to. Stop in on other floors without a tour guide. Residents here look like they have given up. This isnt the case in all nursing homes. Do not send anyone to live here.

    I truly wish I could mark minus multiple stars because if I could I would! This place damn near ended up with me leaving there in a hearse along with the help of Regions Hosp. Regions discharged me to this N.H.after I had spent a week or so at the hosp. with what they diagnosed as a subdural hematoma.I had been a frequent visitor there in my work years because of my job and the place horrified and scared me to death 20 yrs. ago due to multiple reasons re/the care I witnessed being given there.During the week I spent there they never gave me ANYTHING! but tylenol for pain and I had already been taking really effective pain meds for years prior to being taken to Regions WHICH IS NOT my normal hospital---that is and has been for over 15 years UNITED. My head by the end of that first week felt like it was on fire. The N.H. refused to have me transported to my own hospital after I had asked several times for something more potent for pain and spent my last night at Bethel with heated blankets wrapped around my head. The next AM I started asking the staff to send me to my usual hosp. and they refused saying that it would be against medical advice. I ended up having to contact the police who informed the staff that they HAD to let me leave. Within an hour I was in the ER at United having a CT wherein they discovered a bleed in my brain (which amounts to inflicting the same kind of damage that a stroke does) and had open brain surgery along w/a craniotomy 48 hours later. I now have infrequent seizures which are fairly well controlled by medication.This was about 39 months ago. This all started with being taken to Regions rather than United by the ambulance and I hold them *almost* as responsible as I do Bethel. Bethel is a hell-hole (for many other reasons than what I've listed here) as compared to most nursing homes in the St Paul area. A good thing to keep in mind when trying to find a nursing home for family members to stay in is to seek out non-profit nursing homes that have an affiliation with any church.

    The staff is Extremely unprofessional. My father was damn near killed by the incompetency of the nurses and the doctors. He came to them speaking normally on a Friday and within 5 days he was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. I advise anyone to not put their family members in this urine infested facility. They also stole his property and refused to replace it. I warn you all to not put your loved ones here cause they're going to either end up in the ICU or dead

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
