    My grandmother was brought to Bethesda for care. She is legally blind, has the beginning stages of Althemers, cannot take her meds without assistance, has left the stove on after attempting to cook on several occasions, has fallen and had to be transported by ambulance to the hospital on more than one occasion. There are so many things, well let's just say too many to mention. The last time she was in the hospital (the reason she was sent to Bethsada in the first place) her doctor told the family that she was unable to take care of herself and needed to be in the nursing home or assisted living home and would NEVER be able to stay alone at home again. She has become violent and has hit and kicked nurses & family members many times. Well she went to Bethsada and oh the staff there was plenty accommodating and promised the best of care. After about a week of her being violent to the staff they decided that her medicine for the dementa wasn't working and wanted to transfer her to a hospital in Carthage so they could help get her medicine regulated. She stayed in Carthage for about 3 weeks. They finally got her medication regulated. They told us that she had NOT been taking her medication right for quite sometime & they also found a medicine to help with her dementa and told us that it would be only temporary help that eventually the dementa would be so bad that nothing could be done. After getting her regulated her violent tendencies stopped and she started to recovery as well as she could with her other illnesses. She was transported back to Betasada and finally started to get settled and nearly stopped asking when she could go home and stopped begging family members to take her home every time we visited. Well low and behold when her 30 days was up at the Bethsada they kicked her out!!! Telling the family that she was well enough to take care of herself and go home. They said as long as she could go to the restroom by herself she was perfectly capable of staying at home alone. After saying that they contradicted themselves by saying that other options was available like having a nurse come set with her daily 7 days a week only during the daytime but we would have to find someone to stay a night for ourselves . If she can take care of herself then why would she need a nurse at all? My grandmother is very loved & all of her children & grandchildren do all we can to help take care of her. Unfortunately we all have to work & cannot stay with my grandmother during the nights. We have children and responsibilities that have to be tended to. But Bethsada didn't seem to care as long as they didn't have to care for her anymore. Last night was the first night my grandmother came back home. My grandmother has 3 children (1 son and 2 daughters) her son, my dad has Ankleosenspondilitice (a crippling back disease,) has had a heart attack and many other illnesses, her middle child, my aunt just recently had a stroke, so it is very difficult for them to help with my grandmother but since Bethsada kicked her out we have no other choices. All 3 children plus my mother helped bring her home yesterday. As they was getting her settled; they gave her nightly medicine to her...afterwards she asked 5 times about her medicine wanted to make sure they left it out for her to take for the night. Does this sound like a person that can take care of herself? Bethsada was getting my grandmothers social security check along with her retirement check for them to keep my grandmother there to make sure she was taken care of. Apparently that just wasn't enough money. ITS A CRYING SHAME THAT BETHSADA HAD TO LIE ABOUT WHY THEY WAS KICKING MY GRANDMOTHER OUT. They said it had nothing to do with money. Their own therapist told the family that my grandmother WAS NOT able to go home & WAS DEFINATELY NOT ABLE to stay alone & take care of herself. So apparently Bethsada does not listen to what their liscensed therapist says. So what's the point in having one if their not gonna listen to them? So I have only one thing to say to Bethsada SHAME ON YOU ALL!!!!

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
