    I had to revise my 1-star review I wrote on August 26, 2016, due to the fact that over the last two months, I've come to learn that my father (who has dementia) has been manipulating my sister and the staff there because he wants to leave. He has violent outbursts and tells my sister and I that he's in a prison and a lot of other horrible things. I will say this is a predominantly African American patient facility and my father is older and has asked if there were any other people he could have a room with that were like him, which we understood his meaning. Unfortunately there are not, and they put him in another room with a man who doesn't speak because he is dying. It's a sad place to be, and most people are very ill. We feel for our father but I have to say since I called to complain about a lot of things, they have made some serious effort in attempt to make our father happier. The problem is my father will never be happy again. He was an alcoholic for 60 years who is now sober and he has brain damage from a hemorrhage about 8 months ago and it's only made matters worse for him and my sister. I don't wish anyone to go through this with their parents, because it's taking a massive toll on my sister's health back home. I'm in California and the calls I get have been crazy, and not very accurate. After coming to realize and talk with several helpful and very polite staff members, that what I was being told months ago wasn't altogether accurate. This is a facility where you come to rely on because you have Medicare and Medicaid. They helped our father get Medicaid, too. We don't have private health insurance, and this is one of the few places that take in patients with limited financial resources. We spend a lot on his other needs, like the diapers he likes, razors he wants, Fixodent, mouthwash, food he loves, and taking him out once in a while which adds up. But it's a facility that does their best with the budget they have and the people are actually very nice.

    This place is a disgrace! My grandmother has been here for less than a month and we're already having issues with this place. Bad enough I've heard horrible stories from other people. In less than a week, we found a bruise on my grandmother's face and scratches on her chest, today she was sent to the hospital because, according to these people, "she tried to get up on her own and fell". Now she is admitted with a busted face!!! My grandmother is almost 94!!! She can barely walk and has alzheimer's. WHY IS SHE LEFT ALONE!???!!!! This place is lucky i've been caught up with work for the past few days and haven't stopped in and see who's responsible for this. These people are careless and will leave the poor elderly people yelling for their attention, witnessed it myself over the weekend. The state needs to shut this place down, or hire people who are responsible and care about the elderly and sick. Some of these women are on their cellphones most of the time. And it's pointless to speak to the management here, they promise to "investigate" and things only get worse. Very disgusted!

    I've had continuous problems relating to my mothers care here at Alaris at Passaic county. She's had a fractured arm due to incompetent staff. Her room has not been painted even though i'v asked to remove the mildew along sid her bed for a year now. I constantly call 3 days ahead of time according regulations to take her out for weekends but her meds are not available. Sometimes I get coroperations and other times I do not. My mother is not allied to leave. Reporting or calling the state pays no regards here, because when I called to report staff who didn't report my mother being injured; it didn't get help. She received a fractured arm, no one reported it and my mother was held to blame for the issue.

    If you value your loved ones do not place them here. The staff is unprofessional and the incompetence is beyond astronomical. The nurses sell cigarettes to patients on the side and just watch tv during night shift. Security had to actually leave their post to find a nurse to assist my son and give him the meds he needs because they refused to answer the phone and emergency button. My son was there no more than 3 days and almost died under their care. His sugar levels went down to 34 only because the nurses would give him insulin without checking his levels first. They also have faulty life saving equipment.

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
