  • ★★★★★ in the last week

    My sister was in this nursing home after being partially paralyzed by a stroke. She was recently admitted to the hospital and has some of the worst bedsores professionals have ever seen and a sore on her foot that grew from a nickel size to a half dollar size in just a few weeks. The physical therapy is a joke. They do the least amount possible. DO NOT SEND SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT TO THIS FACILITY!!!!!!!

    Took care of my great, great, uncle very well.

    My mom was diagnosed with Lung Cancer on February 10, 2016. My mom passed away on April 15, 2016. As you can see, that time went very fast for us. On Friday, April 8th 2016 I received a call from Hospice that my mom had begun "rapidly declining". As the day went on her change became more and more dramatic. Her pain continued to increase, which I told the nurse about every chance I got. She was no longer making any sense; the words coming out of her mouth were jibberish. She could no longer swallow her pills, or feed herself. She could no longer stand or walk without assistance. She did not understand the concept of a call light or to even ask for help if she needed to use the restroom. If I left the room for more than 3 minutes, I would come back to find her trying to get out of bed and stand up. I caught her in my arms from falling 4 times. She had to keep using the restroom and I would push the call light for help but no one would come. I began timing how long it would take someone to get to her and the longest time was 18 minutes. I would never expect someone to instantly be there, but anything over 5 minutes is not acceptable. I would yell for help, no one was even in sight. One time I yelled for help and an aide started walking very slowly toward me, full of attitude. One time this very same aide sat my mom down on her bed and scolded her, "Next time you need to use the bathroom you push that call light and you ask for a wheelchair!!" She then tried to explain to my mom that she needed to scoot closer to the top of the bed, which my mom did not understand. The aide proceeded to grab my mom by the back of the pants and pull her where she wanted her to be, and my mom literally screamed in pain and surprise. That was the final straw for me; I knew I had to get my mom out of there. I did not feel comfortable leaving to go home when I knew my mom wouldn't get the care she needed. I will never forget the nurse, Eva laughing when my mom told her she was in excruciating pain. I did not see anything funny about that. I worked in an assisted living facility for over 10 years. My point in telling you this is to try and explain that I knew what to look for, both good and bad. I saw the good when I toured your facility, and I saw the bad the minute my mom needed more care. Also, treating me like an annoyance was not acceptable. Even if you found me annoying, I deserved to be treated with respect. In my time at the assisted living facility I NEVER treated family members of my residents like they were annoying or bothersome. Not only would it be against my own ethics, but I would have lost my job! My bosses did not accept anything less than the best, and had administration heard anything of the sort that would mean immediate termination. I also found it very rude and inappropriate to yell at the woman in the room across from my mom to stop banging on whatever she was banging on every single night. "STOP BANGING!!!" "PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO SLEEP!!" "SERIOUSLY SHUT UP, I COULD HEAR YOU ALL THE WAY DOWN THE HALL!" Yes, no doubt that was annoying...but how dare you raise your voice at that poor woman. Would you want someone you cared about being yelled at by someone you are supposed to be trusting to care for your loved one? Let me tell you, no one willingly walks into Anchor Lodge or ANY nursing home and says "I can't wait to live here! I would much rather live in this nursing home than be independent at my own home!" The people in your care have no choice but to be there. Those people were just like you and I at some point in their lives, and one day before you know it, you will be the woman banging on something for attention. You will be the 55 year old woman who 3 months ago was absolutely fine, but all of a sudden is dying of an aggressive cancer who has to be in a nursing home where the staff is rude and degrading the minute you need more care.

    My mom lives here and it's not perfect, but it's a pretty good nursing home and the best in Lorain County.

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.
