    The nurses are very nice and friendly. But the food lacks and needs improvement

    My father was under the care of the staff there for over two years until he recently passed earlier this month. The care he received was outstanding, the staff was so courteous to my mother and sister and helped us understand what was happening and what to expect. I highly recommend the services offered here to anyone who needs help.

    Our family has been very happy with all aspects of the Ohio Veterans Home, from the admission process, nursing care, activities, etc. It is a very stressful decision to move a loved one into any facility but having someone like Kim in Admissions made it less stressful. Kim was great to work with. She was very responsive, kept us updated on the admission process, and explained things in a clear, easy to understand manner. She was extremely helpful not to mention caring. One admitted, everyone there made us feel welcome; the maintenance staff who helped set up the room, the activities director, the nursing supervisor, and the aides were all great. Over the past few months since my dad has been admitted, he has been well taken care of and his family is very pleased with the level of care and attention he receives as well as the updates on his care and well being.

    My father was transferred to their Memory Care unit from another facility which was newer but the care was terrible. Well the difference has been night and day. He is received 100% better care at the Ohio Veterans Home! They keep him clean, engaged and he's gaining back the ten pounds he lost in the other facility! The staff is so friendly, caring and professional. He doesn't ask to go home all the time like he used to. He has adjusted so well because of the care and attention he has received. The staff keeps our family up to date on everything concerning my dad and we are able to call anytime of the day or night to check on him. We visit often on various days/times and all the caregivers we have met have been wonderful! They really know how to do memory care. Today my dad is going on a 'field trip' for a scenic ride and for milkshakes with the other residents and the wonderful activities director! We are so thankful to everyone at the Ohio Veterans Home.

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
