    Evidently they're changing owners and the office is so upside down their phones don't even work properly.

    My father is a resident at Sunny Side. I am so please with the care and attention he is receiving. When I visit my father there I can feel and sense the warmth and care from the staff. The staff works hard and takes the time to comunicate with the residents. Its a good feeling to know my fahter is getting such great care.

    I worked in this hell hole for two years. I tried to make a difference but the level of neglect was more than I could stand. I would not put an animal in that nursing home. It starts with management and trickles down. I'm surprised it's still open....

    My wife just went there to get her Mom. She fell this morning because no one was there to help uer get out of bed. They lost her hearing aids. My wife has pictures of the room with food all over the floor. When she got there her mom was waiting for someone to help her get from the chair back into bed since lunch and that was at 2:30pm. Place is a p.o.s. with an a-hole staff. We will be following up on this.

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
