    I have been working in the long term care environment for the last 25 years. I can say this with a lot of confidence, experience and pride- that Merry Heart is no doubt one of the best places to work. They truly embody their motto of "Family Caring for Family".

    My brother did rehab from surgery at MH. They are a 5 star facility. Staff & management are caring, warm, nurturing, responsive and professional. You can feel the Christian love & attitude. Thanks MH.

    I am proud to be a member of the Merry Heart Health Care Center family for almost 10 years. Merry Heart truly lives up to the reputation of a caring place for short term rehabilitation and long term care. - Heather Carpenter, PT

    My inlaw has been in Merry Heart for 2-weeks for assistance in walking. As of today, they have not done anything for her. She's still in bed, with a feeding tube (2 months now). Which they won't take out because they said she throws up. She is not disabled or handicapped. Before her surgery (2months ago) she was driving, walking, etc. Now she's been in bed for 2 months and can't walk or stand and their not feeding her regular food. You ask questions, no one knows anything. They told me this was the best place for rehab. I say not.

    The first thing you notice in the dementia ward is the smell, then get ready for some 1950's nursing care. The pride themselves on offering nothing in the way of wellness or mental stimulation for patients. They offer shelter, food and keep the patient clean, but beyond that they got nothing. If you dare to ask for anything you are told to leave. I would not board my dog there.

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
