    Very unprofessional staff .harassing a disabled person while the nurse was supposed to be working taking care of elderly .how unprofessional! Smh the supervisors should pay attention to their staff better .

  • ★★★★★ 5 months ago

    I was hired in the Nanticoke location. After I was given a offer letter, I was then informed that the person who hired me should have never done so because they were still interviewing?! I called the manager and was told he had no idea what goes on with the hiring. I told him my concerns and my story and he completely disregarded me and when I asked who could help me and if there was someone higher up he hung up on me. Do not ever work here! These people are highly unprofessional!

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
