    I was the former Director of Social Services...the only reason I left was to move to be with my family in South Jersey. I visited yesterday and I was very impressed with the new subacute floor. I have 15 year geritic nursing home experience! Great facility and family!

    2015/10/23 Review Homestead RHCC. I am a 65 year old male who suffered a Triple AAA aneurism seven months ago. I was in bad shape, I coded three times but was returned to life by some fantastic surgeons. Apparently God did not want me yet. After many surgeries, medical procedures and a long recovery period, I was released to Homestead RHCC in July, 2015 to begin my rehabilitation. I can honestly tell you; the Nurses and Aids are the best. Every one of them CARE about their patients. I believe that they love us like they love their own parents. The Therapy Staff is exceptional! They were knowledgeable, understanding, yet stern. They pushed and prodded and made me walk again! I HATED them and LOVED them for how and what they made me accomplish. The Homestead support staff; administration, dietary, food, recreation, etc. all made my stay a bearable necessity. Do I want to be there? NO!! But I can't think of any other place that I would want to rehab! Thank you; Homestead staff!! ? ? ?

    Used to be one of the top rated care facility. Christy shut down all not for profit places and now this place is strictly bottom line. Firm that ruin it had problems in other states. Just another example of how your state govt says thank you to the generation that got them through the 30's & 40s. It should be called save a dime.

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
