    The staff is amazing!! Nurses, CNA's, receptionists, social workers....all very compassionate while caring for my dad and the entire family. My brothers and I have been dealing with various skilled nursing facilities and hospitals for a decade and we were always less than impressed with the majority of the facilities. What a difference with this place...nothing but good things to say about our experience!!

    "I just returned from Independence Way at Cedars. My recovery was easier because of the great nursing staff, physical therapy dept., and the TLC given to me by every member of the staff. The spacious accommodations were much more home-like than I ever expected. Thanks to all involved in my care; I am feeling much better today." - Ray Tessier

    My mother and sister were admitted to Cedar Crest with injuries recently. Although most of the staff are wonderful workers/caring people i.e. James, Benny, Norma, Adeka other names slip my mind (with a few exceptions one being Haley), we found there to be very poor communication with staff in general and changes of shift. The place looks nice on the inside and outside but try to get help to go to the bathroom!! You have to wait an average of 20 minutes (not too bad) on a good day and at LEAST 45 minutes on a bad day. Sadly, we found this place to be short staffed or working at a bare minimum almost everyday making the wait to relieve oneself unacceptable. The staff and nurses were often times confused as to how to set up my mom's leg in her bed. Per my mom's surgeon, she was told that her leg must be elevated on a pillow. But, when family and friends would visit staff needed to be reminded or seemed confused as to what had to be done for her basic needs so she could HEAL after her SURGERIES! When I spoke to nurses about issues/concerns the messages didn't get relayed to CNAs. It was not only frustrating but frightening!! The dietary department also kept sending the wrong meal beverage requests for my mom. I had to speak with at least four staff and dieticians at least two times over the phone before my mom's choices were to her liking. This place has a lot of potential. I was hoping to have a great experience especially since it's a nursing home very close to where me and my family reside. We had several other issues (my mom almost fell twice, reusing ace bandages over and over again instead of changing them) but this is basically an idea of our experience at The Cedars. Management if you are reading this more staff on duty is a MUST for BASIC care and reminders for staff to communicate with one another is a MUST so doctor's orders are followed properly. Basically, not having enough staff to do important jobs in health care is unacceptable.

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.

Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
