    Definitely know sign language if you're going to work here. I don't think it's exclusively for the deaf but most residents are and a good bunch of staff as well. Initial impression was the place was relatively clean and the people we're nice.

    Most people think this place is for the deaf .....but it's for everyone. I am 44 years old and had a few surgeries and had to find a place since I couldn't walk on my own and needed rehab. Please check it out the staff is great and the rooms are wonderful.

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
