    I Will forever feel guilty for placing my Mother in this place. She was previously living at Winslow Gardens. When visiting my Mother several CNAS would just look at you and turn there heads . You could hear them complaining in hallway about various issues. Some you could see did not interact at all with patients verbally. The housekeepers did a wonderfull job of interacting with patients. And there were two very kind hearted women that did activities with patients . I made a complaint against a nurse who says she has worked there a long time. Time to retire maybe .Who seems to be extremely comfortable there .So comfortable that she would continue to be extremely unpleasant. I believe her superiors are probably frightened of her . But then again the first person I complained to about it is,as grumpy as she is .I tried to deal as little as possible with her . I came in the evening she was texting . She had three elderly women in a room with her . She was not engaging with them just texting on her phone . She saw me but ignored me . Several weeks latter she would not answer my Sister about a medical question she had .She refused to give eye contact . My sister then asked for her name . She then was rude to my brother . After the first complaint she became even more hostile. So I made another complaint. The same day my complaint was finally taken a week latter !! Thats the day I was told my Mother needed to leave asap. The following day the nurse I filed complaint against supposedly said my mother did something unsafe . And there were two CNAS with her . Which is extremely unusual because you can never find anyone .My Mother was sent to Geri Psychiatric ward . If I could do it all over again I would have never put my sweet Mother in this place . Some of you in the medical field need to change your careers. Very unpleasant experience. I know its difficult in trying to find your loved one a good nursing home . Try to take your time looking . Good luck

    My grandfather was a long resident of Linn and Winslow Gardens. While he was inpatient at a local hospital for a bloody nose we were notified he would not be able able to return to their facility. We had to scramble to find a new facility. I feel this was a horrible thing to do to a 93 year old man who has been a resident for over 10 years. No one from this facility reached out to see if we need help with anything. On the day we went to pack up his belongings a house keeper who was very apologetic and stated how much she will miss him was the only one who acknowledge our presence. I would not recommend Linn due to the fact that they basically evicted my grandfather and we had no say about it!

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
