    My mom has been at Berkshire for 4 years . It was a rough transition for me at the beginning as I cared for her at home, but the staff really helped me with the whole process and shes in great hands. She has made so many great friends , plays cards and attends all the activities. She also loves when shes on the therapy program. The social workers have been so helpful and anytime I have had any questions administrations has really made sure they are involved. I highly recommend this facility. My mom is still here and doing great. :) Karen

    My Father passed away December 28, 2018 approximately 24 hours after I had them call an ambulance because my Dad was gurgling and barely conscious. He died from neglect right under my nose, although I tried everything to communicate my concerns. I didn't think he would make it even to the hospital. When the trauma emergency room doctor came to speak to me he said he was severely malnutrition, dehydrated, had pneumonia and sepsis which is poison in his blood stream caused by a urinary tract infection-a common infection that will kill elderly if not treated. On Christmas Eve I expressed my concerns about it and the test had still not been done 2 days later when he was rushed to the hospital. So much more can be said about the lack of action or concern the staff showed. Nurses not able to even recognize he was dying? Even more disturbing is the fact that not one person from that facility has contacted me to find out what happened to my Dad. My brother went to Berkshire to collect any items of significance 2 days later so obviously they know now but no one was had even made 1 phone call to me to even offer their condolences. The Father my bed had is now available. I urge anyone who truly cares about their loved ones but has no choice but to bring them to a nursing home NOT to bring them ever to Berkshire.

    Would I choose this Facility for my loved one, No! Would I look for an oustanding facility to leave my loved one, absolutely! Had a family member stay here for a few months. Everything happened so fast that my family didnt have to opportunity to search around. Let's start with the facility being so dirty, stains on walls, the smell(horrible) and the ventilation(horrible). The place looks like a phsyciatric ward. We had to complain about the room not being mopped or cleaned, hallway walls in and out the rokm dirty. Once a complaint for reported by several family members thats when they started cleaning to the point where i actually smelled cleaner waking down the corridor. NOW as far as staff, administration was OK and tried to accomadate the complaints. NURSES- unprofessional, they do not introduce themselves with name better yet dont even say hello. One time i was there I was sitting next to my family member, the nurse came in and said "I had to get out and rolled her eyes at me" I asked why she says "I need to change this patient and pointed to her" which was the patient next to us. Ok no problem but she didnt have to say it that way...it was rude and obnoxious. Nurses/Aids do not read notes left from the rotating staff or who knows maybe they don't care enough to right anything down. I could really go on and on with my experience here but I wont. Joint commision needs to pay a few visits here, not sure if they do check up here or if its another federal mandated company that visits to keep facility up to par. Definitely do your research and if you have no choice to leave your family member here be an active visitor, several times a day or week....as much as possible and do not feel intimidated by staff to complain! Much luck!

    If I was a live in patient in this facility or even being there for a short term I would definitely be tying sheets together and getting the hell out! Run for the hills everybody, your in the grips of the dreaded and disgusting Berkshire ugly decease. I don't even know how the New York State Department of Health allows this vile place to operate. The place is beyond dirty, the patients or should I call them inmates are filthy and they smell. My sister in law is now in there as a short stay patient, for rehabilitation. I pray that she doesn't pick up something nasty from some of the billion germs in there. The workers are just going through the motions sitting back saying "show me the money". It could be a great place to crash if your inebriated. Heaven help us all.

    This facility is horrible, my mother is in this facility recovering from a stroke and complications from cancer . When she arrived a family member had to confront staff about cleanliness, sheets ,bathroom etc. The staff seems as if they dont want to be there and care for the sick , just there to be on there phones . The staff also administers meds to my mother and when I asked what and how may milligrams it was, she had no idea .... then to top it off they only shower or bath the patients twice a week as per policy , another no no in my book. No wonder there so many people whom get more sick in these places . The hallways look like the movie Awakening with Robert DeNiro . I highly recommend you come for a visit so you can decide for your self but my mom is in here temporarily and even that is to long . Your love one is better off in a homeless shelter , than this place

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
