    ***UPDATE: I am reducing my rating of this facility from 2 stars to 1. I have also attached photos of recent meals my friend has received (disgusting, no fresh fruit or vegetables whatsoever, the pictures speak for themselves). My friend's physical and emotional health had continued to decline unabated since moving to this facility. The responder to my initial review gave their own facility 5 stars in response to my review! This alone demonstrates the complete absence of integrity, professionalism, and caring at this facility. *** A friend of mine has been living unhappily in this facility for two years and it has gotten to the point where I feel I need to write a review. She reports that the food is very substandard (no fresh fruit or vegetables and very limited selection of healthy food - this morning they ran out of bread and the "ham salad sandwich" consisted of a soupy "ham salad" poured on top of a scoop of white rice), unreliable medical support (strictly limited access to doctors and nurses, neglecting to refill prescriptions in a timely manner) severe lack of general cleanliness of the facilities and bedding, absence of any aesthetic element (barren walls, etc.) and overall unresponsiveness of staff, in particular a failure to protect patients from those mentally unbalanced patients who may pose a physical danger (my friend has been physically and verbally attacked by other patients in the past), and severely restricted time outdoors (patients are allowed 20 minute smoking breaks several times a day). My friend has not left her room in many days, nor left the facility for weeks and I am deeply concerned for the declining health and emotional well-being I have witnessed during her stay in this facility.

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
