    If I could leave NO stars, I would. This place should be closed down. The people that live there are there to die, that's about it. The aids do not do a thing so if you want to get paid to do nothing, get a job here. The rooms are outdated and filthy. My father was a severe diabetic and went into a diabetic coma because of sheer neglect. He had low blood sugar and was rushed to the hospital after he kept insisting his sugar was dropping, calling the nurses station for something to raise it. He was told the nurse was on break and he'd have to wait. I would NEVER EVER recommend this zoo to anyone. I wouldn't even put my dog there. Run faraway!!

    This place is nothing like the pictures. Except the entrance lobby. Rooms are dirty, food dripping down side of nightstand. Ceiling tiles brown and about to fall down. Soup can screwed to nightstand to hold remote for tv. Smell of urine in patient area. I was there for about 1 hour and left. Disgusting. I gave it one star for the newly decorated lobby. Otherwise it would definitely be a negative 1.

    I live here and witnessed abuse here. The aids do the bare minimum. People come here to die. Look the other way. Be warned!!!

    My Dad was placed here by Huntington hospital after (imho questionable at 80 yes old) back surgery (my Dad's decision but it was done as a "Hale Mary)" with his surgeon possibly overselling possible outcomes success rates. Given he was reduced to not walking or barely walking with a walker he was desperate to gain structural restoration to maybe get him to walk again. I have only been to Apex once so this review is 1st impression only and should be noted only as that. . While my experience included a few very good and dedicated people it left me with many questions unanswered as to my Dad's health and the handle that they had on his accelerating diminished mental capacity (which has become a bigger concern esp. since in August he tested negative for Alzheimer's and other dementia type illnesses (that would show up on an MRI) but unclear all other possibilities like Parkinson's or even over medication are ruled out as of yet. While the medication issues are largely due to prior hospitals - they seek they could cause or worsen his underlying problems and cause some worsening of any diminished capacity (in what was within the prior year a high functioning person). -- I met with many kind staff, including their. Iciness Manager Michelle who then took time to answer many Austen's I had regarding Medicaid etc. She then took me to find my dad in the cafeteria where I met a very professional and caring speech therapist, Ryan, who mad me aware of a few surprising.motor skill problems that seem new to me that have caused my Dad to have problems chewing and forced him for now on to a blended diet,. I then went on to see him in therapy with his Physical therapist, Sylvia, who spent time showing me his recuperation level towards walking (still a long way to go and with his age --maybe very long) but they were causing him to make an effort which was a significant effort given his seeming confusion he took directions pretty well. Sally (his Units daytime LPN) also took time to talk to me the day before I visited, at length. All these people tell me that Apex has many caring staff in the hospital but it remains to be seen if it all Functions together well as its too soon. I'd have given 4 stars but the monthly 15 minute meeting and the time spent talking with Social workers has been too short and until I feel a more clear handle on my Dad's psychological issues (or illnesses)and get more clarity into his diagnosis I am saving the hopeful 4th star until I feel More clear on the consistency of their leadership from his attending doctors who may have been in the monthly 15 minute staff meeting I wa conferences in on but failed to grasp much For smaller rehab/nursing homes but Id feel a lot better speaking with his primary Medical Doctor and. Psychiatrist -they may well Have been in the Jan 6th initial 15 min phone conference ( where I was unable to gain much traction given time too short for the complexity of the discussions needed mho (other than to be clear my Dad clearly needed to migrate into full Nursing care. So for now I have given my review as acceptable with leaning towards the possibility of it being a good place overall. It certainly has a decent energy level And activity level as viewed from the stints all being engaged out of there rooms-?as opposed to simply sleeping in their rooms which many pure nursing homes one might might see commonly. I am no expert but have been a volunteer musician for many senior homes in MA and hope this hospital will turn out to be Anglos one but it's too soon to say that. With some hope in what is a sad visitation for any child whose parents has to enter into nursing care .. this is no easy business and requires folks who really care..

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
