    Horrible! I pulled my Mom out of that hell hole! Call buttons answered most times for a half hour. I was told my Mom had to sit in her feces and eat her dinner so no else would be offended. My Mom had a open bed sore.Numerous complaints to the director of nursing, who than asked if this was the first time my Mom was in skilled rehab. I could go on and on.

    They admitted my grandmother into a unit that she didn't belong b/c that's where they had an open bed. She had dementia & they let her sit in her own feces b/c they do not have enough staff. The staff is very small, they always look unhappy and the decor is downright shabby & depressing, unlike other homes in the area. When one of the best staff members complained to the authorities, they fired him. I'd reserve this place for my worst enemies. Avoid this place at all costs.

    No one seems to know what they were suppose to do. I got routed to three people. The third person, Mary Ann, a nurse, told to phone back on a Monday to get may answers. Saturdays are not a good day. If you wish to wait from Saturday until Monday, to get answers then this is the place for you. If you want answers now, go some where else. Nov 29, 2008

    Awful place! I wouldn't let my worse enemy stay there. The staff would rather watch tv and talk on their cell phones than take care of the residents! The place is dirty, the residents are not given quality care and nobody wants to be responsible for anything! Do not take your loved one there!,,

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
