    My father has been living here for about 1.5 years. It is a really nice ficility. My father seems to like it here. The only complaint we have is that it takes about 15 mins for someone to pick up the phone after the receptionist transfers the call to the back when myself or family call to talk to him. Then you have to wait for them to take the phone to him. You better put their phone # on your calling plan and have lots of time and patience when u call.

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
