    Please do not send your loved ones here. Horrific, unprofessional staff verbally abuse and neglect patients. They also refuse to give patients their medications and curse/scream at patients for asking. This place needs to be shut down ASAP.

    My father had a quintuple bypass. He was in the Shrewsbury rehab for 6 days. We weren't sure exactly what but something was wrong. Long story short they almost killed my father! I have never seen such a bigger group of people in a so called "medical facility" that don't have a single clue on what they are doing. One hand has no idea what the other is doing. From the dieticians to the physical therapist,from the "nurses" to the "doctors". Please please please believe me when I tell you they will kill someone soon. If you love your friends or family member DO NOT SEND THEM HERE! Within 3 hours of rushing my father back to the ER he was a million times better! He was Coherent and much stronger. Not a person at that Meridian knows what he or she is doing. STAY AWAY!!!

    My father in law developed a severe stage 4 pressure ulcer which became infected. He was left in bed for 4 days and not one staff member assisted me in finding his wheelchair which was lost. He would not have gotten out of bed if it wasn't for me. As a practicing occupational therapist in the industry for over 20 years, I was quite distraught from the substandard nursing care and therapy he received. I had to advocate constantly for therapy services to be rendered as well as a basic diaper change.

    We just took my dad out today,AMA due to what we, as a family, felt was neglect on their part. We did the right thing, showing up at different times, so the staff did not see a pattern in our visiting. He was admitted there for what was supposed to be intensive leg strengthen after a hospital stay. He was only getting 1 hour of therapy a day, the rest of time in wheelchair or bed..how is that strengthen his legs? Facing the wall to eat while others are all together, like a time out? Calling for someone to help him to bathroom, no one helps, he has accident, and they complain? As we were leaving, they said he couldn't leave because of the oxygen he needs...dad wasn't on oxygen! He looked like an old, frail man. Got him back to his assisted living facility, and within an hour, he had a sparkle in his eyes again, and was crying to everyone he was so happy to he back, and never wants to go to "that bad place again". Please, think long and hard before bringing a loved one there.

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
