    They should use this place as a set for a horror movie. Unfortunately google doesn't allow you to leave no stars. The doctors are invisible and incommunicado. The nurses are understaffed and don't seem to care about anyone or anything. The superiors don't know how to communicate to the family. They would not allow my father to go to the bathroom without assistance, problem is, when you rang the buzzer the assistance didn't show up at all, or showed up after it was too late. The food they gave him was not suitable for a diabetic. They threatened to release him at home when his medicare ran out even though they told me he was not able to live independently. The place is dirty and smells, there are no real activities for the residents and in my opinion this place should be closed down.

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.
