    If I could post a picture here, I'd show you how this facility sent my Dad to the Drs office. First off, I got there 10 minutes early and he had been dumped out and left alone for awhile and when I saw how dirty he was, I burst into tears. He had dried food all over his face; then he got sick & my sister who is a retired nurse begged for a week to check him out as he was sick. Eventually, they did and he had an infection so bad it went into MRSI, & he had pneumonia and was in ketoacidosis with his blood sugar so high the monitor couldn't read that high.

    I would give Comfort Care a 5 star rating because of the attentive nurses and the clean and pleasant facility, but I am only giving 2 stars as the result of the management. I'll be polite and not give the name i've seen on her badge and just say it also has Director of Nursing on her badge. I have witness multiple times where she would be fussing out nurses in front of not only other nurses but also everyone else that is present in the hallway VERY loud and harshly. Two times i've actually seen the nurses start crying as a result. I don't go every day, so I can't imagine how often this goes on. That's bad leadership skills and will only eventually bring down the nurses attitudes and eventually the reputation of the nursing home as a result. I think the management here needs a lot of leadership training.

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
Comfort Care Nursing Center has not received any fines, complaints, or inspection problems in the last 3 years.

Staffing Levels Per Resident per Day
