    The majority of the staff were either rude or disinclined to be of any assistance. One aide would actually get up from the nurse's station and duck around the corner to avoid any kind of contact. We asked that the room be kept warm or plenty of blankets be available. We were informed that our loved one had fallen out of bed early Sunday morning. Instead of calling the squad, the staff just put our loved one back in bed, with one sheet. When we got there, he was completely incoherent. This was over 2 hours after the reported fall took place. When we asked why the squad hadn't been called because he was unable to speak sensibly, one of the aides reported that "he's always been like that," which was a total lie! We'll never know for sure how long he laid on that cold hard floor. We called the squad to have him rushed to Riverside for x-rays and tests. They determined that he had a stoke that morning while in that place. He died 9 days later.

    I worked at their skilled unit called TCU for 22 days and I regret every bit of it. Why? because I quit my other job just to be employed at Whetstone. The residents are too needy, the unit managers and other administrative staffs {particularly the DON} are always looking for a slightest possible means of suspending or firing employees. Your hardwork will never be appreciated and no elements of job security. I will strongly inform you not to work there at all.

    The friendly, professional care that everyone provided my mother was the needed support for her return home. I was very impressed with everyone I encountered during visits. I highly recommend this facility!

    Art first I thought this nursging home was a nice facility.... A week ago my aunt was taken from her room here to Riverside hospital. She was unresponsive and the sixties said very close to death from an infection she acquired at this nursing facility. The infection was never treated nor cared for.... SHE ALMOST DIED because of their negligence!!!!! My Aunts Infectious disease doctor told us NOT to send her back to this place. He said had she not arrived at the hospital when she did she would have died.... This is NOT acceptable!!!!!! Please do not send anyone you care about here!!!

    Well, they didn't follow our instructions for my mother in law in pill taking. I found important pills disolved in a glass. But we needed the break. So Whetstone it is. I did like most of the people there. They could use a nicer receptionist too.

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
