    Would not recommend for rehab. Rehab and Nursing Home residents in same rooms/wing. A separate rehab wing is more appropriate and available at other facilities. If we had known this before admittance, we would have chosen the Eddy instead. Do your research before you admit loved ones to any care center and don't be afraid to leave and find a more appropriate setting. The excellent staff care did not outweigh the negative staff experiences. Food was a big complaint by most.

    It doesn't matter the place or how the place looks. It's all in ones head. If you want change then it must come from within. Look up at the sky and feel the breeze passing through your fingers as you smoke cigarettes. No words can describe natures bounty when you are sober

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
