    ZERO STARS....I apologize for such a long post, but I needed to say this. First of all, I was able to walk in the front door, no secuity at the desk. I yelled hello a few times and no one answered. I somehow managed to walk through a dining room to the elevators. Once I got to the desired floor as soon as the doors opened, I was in total shock. Oh my goodness. It was the gloomiest corridor ever. Walls need painting, desks in disaray no organization and not clean and fresh looking. I asked a guy where was the room I was looking for he pointed me in the right direction. As Im walking the stench of urine is unescapable. I beared it because I had to visit my family member. There were people just sitting at a nurses desk I guess thats what it was. I greeted them and found my way. The rooms were dark and it appeared that folks were lounging as if they lived there. I couldnt tell the patients from the visitors. So Im at the room and when I go in it is hot. Theres no air circulating, just warm air coming from these control it yourself radiator/air conditioner boxes. Im wondering, its 100 degrees outside, my person is on a super oxygen mask and is sweating. Im getting irritated, so I ask the guy whos checking vitals, why is this room so hot. He tried to explain something and said he would inform the maintenance. My person said they told him to bring a fan. Huh? There are no modern televisions. You have to get up to push the push buttons, not even basic cable. Wth? I just made sure that my person was comfy and I prepared to leave. As I was leaving and smelling the urine I noticed how sad it looked. Theres no LIFE in that place. No brightness. It looks like your final destination. Poor conditions. I saw huge quilts and bedding I suppose from the prior patient on the chair. I will be contacting the facility next week. Something needs to be done. I would not recommend this place to anyone. It needs a total renovation. They are just taking these peoples money. This is unacceptable. It is so sad to know that sick people are sleeping and given sub standard care in a place that is suppose to take care of them. God bless those parients.

    My 59 year old mom was there and just started to do better and suddenly she died. They didn't perform cpr. Her last words was call 911 they put her on a broken oxygen tank and walked out the room leaving her to die. The doctor was call a few times he never showed up. They cnt speak English there. The nurses are all foriengers.

    No. No. No. No. We need to have a zero star rating posted for this Facility and if you have family please never take them to these type of facilities and you and your family not tag team, visiting your love ones. Advantage is so easily taken of our sick, disabled and elderly, and less quality care is given to them when people sometime, doesn't feel that you have family who care or seem not to care. Visit them. Call them. Send them flowers etc. When you walk in a facility and the living seems as though they could be the walking dead and this is just my opinion because of what actually has been seen. Get your family out of there fast. No one should have a career in this type of business for a check. I personally know first hand about this type of profession and have done it. It's a lot of work and most people are severally under paid in this field of work. You need education, patience, nurturing qualities, social skills, cleanliness, excellent listening and communicative skills Etc. To me equals LOVE and PROFESSIONALISM for what your doing. Be Aware.

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.
