    Most Long Island facilities are v good if your loved one is not vulnerable to catching pneumonia from a shower room that is lite by less than very bright fluorescent builds, has dripping faucets, damp and drafty. The current showers? Just check out any facility before bringing anyone into any residence or rehab facility. This facility has residents & families thankful for their time here. TVs are poor. How pulmonologists can blindly refer advance stage COPD patients without periodically checking diffetent residences thoroughly boggles my mind. My loved one not only caught pneumonia in a facility that by design did not have staffing to respond if one gets a 103-105 fever as 02 levels get closer to brain damage risk nor do the nice gals with certification and or licenses serving meals have suffcient time outside of serving duties to demonstrate in that facility the ability, experience, CE or training to diagnosis if not stay w a patient who might die that evening if left to sleep off a nap after misdiagnosed & in reality in a life threatening stage quickly spiraling down. My loved one got that pneumonia, the next morning put on a antibotic, I understood that nap was a rapidly deteriorating situation headed towards death & after the emergency evacuation St Francis Hospital immediately took her off that prescribed older more general, less specific to pneumonia antibiotic (generic and thus cheaper, who knows?!) that may or may not have even started to have minimum efficacy. I walked in around dinner time & saved a life. The resident w her head bend backwards in a 45 degree angle. She did not respond to me and the on duty licensed gal serving dinner in another room told said she was sleeping but in reality she was losing oxygen % rapidly & to my recollection unconscious. With differering opinions from an on phone Doctor etc I had to be the decisive decision maker and by the time we got her to St Francis she was clinging to life, down critical multiple liters of fluids dehydrated, delirious and with 105 fever. I stayed up all night with the nurse treating her. She had a better day, a few days of talking with family yet the fluid in her lungs never subsided and she lost a valiant battle with pneumonia three or so weeks later. Was it avoidable, was it eventual? I will not play the part to say so. My point? The facilities around the country have their demographics, they do it well but unless your advanced stage COPD loved one has his or her own registered nurse visiting daily, supervising the bathing and coordinating with a private Certified Nurse Aide it is my experience and opinion from an experience in late May 2015 that pulmonologists are not doing their due diligence. It must fall completely on the family. To any facility who would like to reply to my comments : What patients do you turn down and via what process? What is the current standards of your showers? Ambient temperature? How often do facility staff check for drips or water collecting anywhere? The gals serving the meals, are they currently at different licensing and what escalations are they trained for? Who do they report to? What is the current patient to nurse practitioner ratio after 8pm? Your doctors, is it 7/24 on premises, one round a day, on call with 15 mins response time? Seven days a week or less calls on weekends? Do you have specialists, such as pulmonologists visit patients if they are COPD, COPD with pneumonia and do they coordinate with staff physisians, RNs or NPs? Are your medically licensed meal servers qualified to judge if a resident is not getting enough oxygen or just napping? If they choose napping incorrectly, if the resident does not have a hired private monitor, loved one or a privately hired CNA to watch him/her carefully who checks to see if that most current assessment is correct? Who checks the 'napper' after 15 min if the intake chart may possibly say three pneumonias in the prior six months? If there is an emergency, what is your response time internally, by whom and what is his or her qualifications?

    My father has been there for 8 years. NOT HAPPY ! called on saturday and spoke to Desiree, the supervisor, and she was dismissive and rude. Two issues we have : why my father went to the doctors with his shoes on and came back with only one ! She couldnt even give me the name of the ambulance service that took him there ! Their record keeping is in a "book". !! Second issue: Why did NO ONE pick up that my father has skin cancer. ! we had to ask about it. and then get action. Turns out he has Multiple Cancer Cells! I am reporting them to the NYS dept of health !

    Not what they seem. Couldn't get my mothers medication right, refused to admit she had to go to the hospital. The aids were rude mostly, only a small handful seemed to like their job. And the place is NOT as clean as they look. Also the rehab is absolutely terrible.

    My 89 year old mother has been at the Sands Point Center for the past two years and we couldn't be happier with her care. She requires assistance with most day to day activities as well as skilled nursing care. The staff has done an outstanding job in all cases. They are some of the most loving, caring people we've ever met, as well as being consummate professionals. The food choices at the Center are excellent and the residents are offered numerous activities to keep them busy. My wife and I moved out of the NY area last year and stay in touch over the phone and with visits 2-3 times a month. No matter when we get there, and we often come unannounced, everything is as it should be. I would not hesitate to highly recommend the Sand Point Center to anyone in need of the services they provide. Joe and Tina Barber

    My 95+ year young Mom has considered SPCHR her home for many years now. She has made many friends there of both residents and staff. The highly competent staff treats my Mom with dignity, and is welcoming and appreciative of family input. We could not have made a better choice for her ongoing care.

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.
