  • ★★★★★ 2 months ago

    I have been working with the team at Salem transitional off and on for years through my work. I have always found the staff there to be attentive to patients. I have found that the coordination of actual rehab to be great. Patients come out stronger and closer to baseline than when they went in. I always know that the residents that we care for will be coming back to our community well cared for and on their way to recovery. I love working with Kori and Elena in discharge and Melissa an LPN. I'm sure everyone else is great as well, it just so happens that I communicate with them most often. The only reason this review isn't a 5 is that I don't care for the receptionist set up or the phones. I feel that someone should be reachable and that you shouldn't have to wait sometimes ten to fifteen rings for an answer. I'm hoping avamere will see that concern and change the hours of the receptionist to be more available to direct calls.

    My grandma stayed here while healing from a broken hip. The staff was friendly, the facility was clean, and even the lunch was pretty good! My dad and aunt felt the communication between the staff and the extended family was excellent. It was a pleasant atmosphere to go visit Grandma in. She was well-cared for here in her transition from the hospital to a nursing home.

  • ★★★★★ in the last week

    Dad was there for a couple weeks. Staff seemed friendly and knowledge, cleanliness in building ( both patient-focused and in general) as well as outside was good. Accommodations were simple but tasteful.

    I have been a patient twice at Salem transitional and it was a good experience. The nursing staff was caring and took wonderful care of me. The nurses aids are amazing and really spoiled me! I would highly recommend this nursing/rehab facility.

    Not happy with this place what so ever. They are NOT attentive to their patients. Lack of communication with each other and their patients. While my grandfather was staying there none of the nurses were on the same page with his care or what was going on with him. Tore a leg muscle while in the care of these people. Every time a physical therapist came in to take him to therapy we had to question them on how that was possible with his injury he acquired while being there and the hospital called them and told them no therapy at all! The doctor who comes in twice a week is a JOKE!! We requested they wash his clothes for him while he was staying there and that NEVER happened after asking several times and he was there for 20 days. Had to request several times to take him off of stool softners because of very loose bowel movements. Changed the doesage of his insulin and within a day of being home had to call 911 for low blood sugar caused by the insulin intake their joke of a doctor changed it to. We need more people in this field who care for people rather then just a paycheck. We have already tried contacting this facility to get some answers and they take no responsibility at all.

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
