    My mother died there. She was a diabetic and went into sugar shock, and the staff left her alone in her room where she fell out of bed, slammed her head on the floor and went into cardiac arrest.

    I won't put a dog here either

    Do not send your loved ones here. My wife arrived here after knee surgery, and they were not prepared at all for her nor did they care. They did not have any of her needed meds, and was going to wait until Monday when their doctor would come to evaluate her. Even though she had major surgery, and suffers with AFIB. This could have killed her! Would not provide her with a walker or a cane again until Monday. Said "she has to call a nurse (only one on the entire floor) or go to the bathroom on her own without a walker. I would not send 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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
