    My mother's experience in this facility was a nightmare......the staff is lazy , rehab is marginal it is not rated well in terms of its rehab program ( which we didn't know at the time) they lost my mothers bridges...so you can imagine what a nightmare that was............the staff does not help these elderly patents at all...in fact they are rather rude, dismissive and uncaring Oh and did I mention they were giving my mother the wrong meds............................food is awful ....... we took my mother out of the facility ................. my mother left Putnam in worse shape then she came in I have nothing good to say about the staff and this facility if you can avoid this place................ please do so

    My father stayed here for seven nights respite while I took a vacation. Overall his stay was satisfactory. The admissions' director ask me a lot of questions regarding his likes and dislikes, his habits and routines, and I appreciated her gathering a lot of information. My father's nurse did the same thing and I appreciated his interest. The facility was clean. My father's skin gets flaky when it is not washed for several days and his ears were flaky when I picked him up. The rest of his body seemed ok. Most of the staff was friendly and warm. There was a couple who were mean, nasty, and rude. While at Putnam Ridge my father slid out of his wheelchair. The staff immediately contacted my family members and let them know that this happened. I appreciated the staff's quick response to let us know this happened.

    My grandma has been here for about 2 weeks and we are moving her promptly. The night time staff is incompetant and neglectful to the elderly patients here. My grandma used her call button for the past two nights, asking for her pain medication (which should be administered every 4 hours, but it not.) She has dementia and forgets to ask for medication, but they only give pain medication when the patients ask for it, which is ridiculous. My grandma actually called us crying several nights because her pain was so bad and she was not being attended to during the night. My grandmothers roomate used the call button in the middle of the night because she had to use the bathroom; an hour went by and she deficated in her bed. When she was too embarrased to ask for help, she cleaned herself up, and proceeded to use the call button again, and then had to wait another hour before a night time nurse came to help. My grandmother and her roomate told us that they stop drinking water around 4 in the afternoon, so they won't have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, because they know that no one will come and help them use the bathroom in time. That is very sick, in my opinion. The day time nurses are very good, but the night time staff ruins the centers reputation.

    Situated in a stunning wooded vista that creates a private, stress free atmosphere the Birch Wing Sub-Acute Rehabilitation Center is structured to reflect the hospital setting. This said, the primary objective is to focus on and move each patient through the physical and occupational therapy phase to transition into the home setting. Kudos to the professional staff that constantly evaluate and re-evaluate the patient's progress. The staff doing the grunt work, a thankless job, are constantly in demand. The winners are those that can feed themselves and are motivated to do the time and get discharged.

    If you have a family member at Putnam Ridge I highly recommend you move them somewhere else, and if you're looking at putting someone here, I hope you change your mind quick. If your family member reports abuse or poor care or treatment here, don't brush them off as being old and not knowing what they're talking about. It's most likely true. Not all of the caregivers, but most of them, are heartless people who could care less about your loved ones. My great- aunt just died at 98 years old after living there for more than 2 years. She did not die of old age, or illnesses. She died of a head laceration with bleeding in the brain after she was found on the floor next to her bed. She wasn't strong enough to even pull her self up in her bed when her pillow slid down, let alone try to get in a wheel chair next to her bed as the family was told. I believe the caregivers dropped her and made up the story of her falling. On more than one occasion things were stolen from her drawers, and 2 years ago the caregivers broke her arthritic hand trying to get her to the bathroom. They would get angry with her when she soiled her adult diaper, yet wouldn't come and help get her to the bathroom when she would call. She kept her mouth shut while living there, but I will not keep mine shut now. If you have any love for the member of your family you are putting in Putnam Ridge or who already are living there, I hope this review might help you reconsider.

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
Putnam Ridge has not received any fines, complaints, or inspection problems in the last 3 years.

Staffing Levels Per Resident per Day
