    It is a clean facility, a nice facility, many caring workers...then there is the other workers, the office personnel, the administration AND keeping that 5 star rating. BUT what about TRULY caring for the patients and families? What about the patients that are there for rehabilitation to go home? My mother came in standing alone for 10 minutes, now not even 10 seconds. My mother was doing 2 hours a day of therapy, now not even 5 minutes. Yet, somehow this is not any of their doing?? Coming from Madonna Hospital (as there were no beds open on 1st floor to continue rehabilitation) my mother had even started using the walking machine at Madonna. Now as she is not progressing Ridgewood put in a claim to have Medicare coverage revoked? Shocking!!!! How this came about?? I was notified of a general meeting a week before... which would take place the following Thursday, just an "update" on my mothers progress. With my mother sitting there with me and a whole crew at the other end of the table we were told I can appeal the decision BUT she must be out by Tuesday or it would be self pay a $241.00 a day and this would be with no Therapy in this fee!! WOW!! Sad my mother had six surgeries in 21 days, five on her head and one in the stomach. Life flight for an inner cranial aneurysm, first a drain tube, then a team to fix the aneurysm. Then came the shunt, a shunt revision, later a subdural hemorrhage was found, another drain tube, a metal plate on the left side of her head as the neurosurgeon had to saw two 3" incisions into the skull to repair the bleed and drain the rear left cranial where the blood had been and other issues along the way. I am still a bit speechless and in shock at the comments that were made to me about my mother. Not even 3 months ago from the start of it all and kicking her out the door or pay $$$ with NO therapy??!! If this is compassion, caring and all Ridgewood claims to be think twice!! I STRONGLY suggest you look else where. I did appeal, I won THEN the next day they turned right around and started a new claim. In the midst of trying to figure out how to move mother into a new facility that TRULY cares if she ever walks again as her prognoses is 100% recovery over a years time STRESS!! Mother was so outgoing and independent before this... she needs her life back. Be very careful when our older treasures are on the mend 23 days of poor care can destroy what was gained in about the same amount of time. I'm just truly heartbroken AND it is heart wrenching to watch what has ALL been done to my mother from the Hospital that misdiagnosed her, sent her to another hospital which did the same.... seven hours later the rupture, two more hours to be resuscitated, stabilized for flight AND then the 55 minute flight, a total of nine hours before she arrived at UNMC/Clarkson to begin a long road of surgery and recovery... now this??!!.There is truly something wrong with our healthcare system in this country. I DO apologize to all of the caring dedicated workers at this facility... ALTHOUGH if there was a ZERO I would rate Ridgewood as such. Obviously this is a management issue for the most part or this is how a Vetter's Facility works. Thinking about it if I would have brought her home and cared for her myself it would have been easier as she is in worse shape now than when she arrived as far as mobility. The other therapies she was receiving at Madonna which Ridgewood says they provide... sorry just don't see it or believe it. Shame on them.

    Best place of employment I have had the pleasures of working for as a registered nurse. The Vetter Healthcare Services mission, vision, values should be implemented throughout all health care facilities nation wide. I received my CNA here while still under the previous company, worked here in high school and during college. Moved away to obtain my LPN and came back after receiving my ADN. As a charge nurse in long-term care under skilled facility guidelines, I obtained a vast amount of knowledge and leadership skills to carry me into a role as a director of nursing and nurse educator. I would recommend any new or experienced health care provider to apply. The Administrator, DON, and nursing team have the resident's care as their top priority. I worked at Ridgewood Rehab & Care Center along side some of the best health care professionals of my career. The quality of care and compassion towards the resident's and skilled care patients set the facility and staff above the competitors. Their staff in the rehab department and memory support unit are well diverse and current in all healthcare practices. This would be the only facility I would want to place of loved one for their healthcare needs!

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
