    They lied to me about getting in touch with my doctor and they did not give me the correct medicine. I ended up calling my lawyer. The day I was leaving. They had not written up my release papers....my ride home was coming to pick me up in fifteen minutes. Glad I am home.

    If you care at all about your family you will NEVER put anyone you care about in this awful place. The food is horrible and nonsensical. They serve bland, poorly cooked food, as well as food that makes no sense to serve elderly people such as chicken wings. Many elderly people have arthritis and can't eat this, or can easily choke on bones. The care is abysmal. When I visited my grandma recently, she had pressed the signal for help and 15 minutes before I got there, and even after about 15 AFTER I got there, STILL nobody had come to her room. It was dinner time so I was prepared to cut them some slack. She couldn't stomach the dinner they brought her so I went to the desk to see if they could bring her an alternative dinner (mind you, at this time her buzzer was still unanswered as well as at least 3 others on the same floor). When I got to the desk there were 3 aids SITTING AND CHATTING, ignoring the buzzers going off that could easily be someone having fallen in the bathroom or something life threatening. We are moving her to a different facility as of tomorrow, and if you have anyone you care about in this facility I suggest you do the same as soon as possible. This place is terrible. I would give ZERO STARS IF POSSIBLE Citations: Me (former CNA)

    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
Linn Health Care Center has not received any fines, complaints, or inspection problems in the last 3 years.

Staffing Levels Per Resident per Day
