    I would highly recommend Merwick rehabilitation or nursing home to anyone who is looking for a high-quality rehabilitation or long-term nursing home care facility for themselves, their family or friends. I came to Merwick 5 months ago, unable to walk and take care of myself at home. Consequently, I lost my apartment, job and my car. My first Introduction to Merwick was for short term rehabilitation. I worked with the therapist for two months and thanks to their diligent care they got me back on my feet, and I can now walk about 2 to 3 miles a day, I can truly say that the therapist are top rate wonderful, very patient and a pleasure to work with. I was later transferred to long term care which is where I presently reside. I feel that now I have had a lot of experience with the nursing staff and have also found them to be very attentive to people's needs and give excellent care. My experience with the aids has been very good as well, about every hour and a half someone ask me if I need anything. The food is also very good, the only issue I have is that a lot of times they do not always have what is on the menu. All things considered I would give Merwick an A+ rating. Lou B

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
