    My Mom has been a patient off and on since March 2017. The Staff is wonderful and my Mom just loves this place. I made the decision for her to be sent to this facility because she had a very good experience when she was a patient there on 2012. This place is clean as hell and all the nurses and cna's are very nice and professional. Me and my siblings always visited almost every day and we always found our mother very happy and well taken care of. Forest Hill is one of the best places your loved one can be for rehabilitation. Sincerely, Helen E. T. Smith (Daughter of Clare M. Smith)

    This place is horrendous!! DO NOT send your loved ones here. They will be neglected and not in good care. The staff is unprofessional and rude and not competent to care for the people they are getting paid to serve. Randomly check up on your loved ones staying here. Shut this sanatorium/insane asylum down immediately!!!!

    It's just an ok rehab center. It looks clean from the outside but if you have any type of respiratory problem be careful. The air vents and air conditioners are full of dust and grime. The administrators are very unorganized, lack of communication is very common. House Dr is extremely slow to communicate needed orders.

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
