    Bronx Gardens is a fabulous nursing home! As we service the vending machines here I witness how each and every resident is being taken care of with all their needs. The place is always spotless clean and the staff members are so nice and friendly.

    My mom was there for at least a month or a little less. She is on a ventilator. I came to see her almost every day, even making surprise visits in the middle of the night. Because of her stage 4 bed sore i wanted her to be turned regularly. It was always something why they couldn't do it every 3 to four hours. I had many concerns and tried to follow proper chain of command. Leaving my mom lying in her secretions for hours was disheartening. When I complained about it, there was always an excuse to justify it, when we ordered protein and vitamins for our mom from an online site that we trusted, we asked at the care plan meeting if it would be approved to administer to my my and i was told that my mom would get it because it had been approved by the nutritionist. Every day when I would come visit my mom i would ask the nursing staff or nurse practitioner if she had gotten it for the day and i was told yes that my mom was getting the vitamins and the protein I ordered and that it was in the chart or in the orders. Two weeks later when i came to visit my mom i asked to see the multivitamin supplement that was approved by staff and the safty seal was still on it. They had been stringing me along the whole time. I told the director that this was unacceptable because my mom who is a cancer patient needs all the help she can get to help her fight . A few mondays ago when i demanded they take her back to the hospital she was dehydrated, needed blood transfusion and much more that this nursing home failed to identify. When I put a Sony DVD player by her bed side to stimulate her because of her love for music, it was stolen with out a trace. I was told by director they would get to the bottom of it and of course I never heard back from him or any one else regarding the matter.You will be in for a rude awakening if your loved ones have to rely on this nursing home for their care. Do your research first.

    If you care about your family member don't send them here. It always smells bad. The place is old and run down and so is the equipment. Social workers barely return any calls. One of the head nurses barely speaks or understands English. I come to visit almost every evening and I've never seen anyone clean up the room. The same garbage stays in the garbage can for days. The place is extremely loud at night with all the machines beeping all the time. It takes them 20-30 minutes to check and see what the problem is. I don't think they do any actual rehabilitation because I've never seen that either. They don't clean the patients properly. The nurse practitioner told me that they turn the patients every 2 hours...that was a lie. I've sat in the room for hours without seeing that done once. I feel sorry for the people that don't have any family to visit them. Stay away from this place. In response to your response...If the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services gave that facility a 5 star rating they must not have spoken to the patients or their family members. Any one who stays in there more than a few hours can see how that place is being run. And you need to hire more staff...preferably people who speak and understand English.

    When I worked there, it was a fairly good nursing home. Now it is Privately owned. I don't know which way it will go. Probably not better.

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.
