    I was in Brush Country for nearly 10 weeks for their in-patient rehab services... you could not ask for a better group of people that care about you as a patient and work hard to make you comfortable and strive to help your rehabilitation to the fullest. Great nurses, CNA's, and a wonderful group of therapists that don't mess around. They have a nice facility with various levels of care, specialists and a Doctors to accommodate all... and backing them up is a great support staff and administration that are there to make sure you are getting what you need and deserve. After all I went through, I was impressed with the fine group of health care people that are very proud of what they do, and how they do it. I would not give it a second thought if I had to repeat my rehab ordeal, Brush Country would be my first choice! I thank them all the time for my recovery, it was a trying time... I even continue to return on occasion to just say HI, and see the folks that were such an influence on my rehab and medical care. If you ask me today... or tomorrow... I will recommend Brush Country Nursing and Rehab as a first choice to get continued medical care, rehab, and end up with friends that care!

    It's a nice place with good hard workers but upper management sucks.

    Very nice place. I stayed there after surgery inthe hospital. My first time ever staying in a rehab and was very impressed. Had a great room. Very excellent care by all the staff, lots of things to do to keep me entertained, very comfortable bed, great bathroom and shower, clothes washed every day, nice surroundings, lots of different types of therapies and very nice patients. Would definitely want to go back if necessary but hopefully never will need to again.

    Christy, I just wanted to take a quick moment to send a HUGE THANK YOU to you and your staff at Brush Country! I talk about you guys all the time and share with my family/friends/and colleagues about the care given to my mom! I would truly appreciate you forwarding my sincere Thank you to everyone there. To name a few staff that I encountered while staying with my mom: Mr. Byron, Mr. Joe, Ms. Maria, Ms. Fifi (not sure if I'm spelling correct), Ms. Gayle, Ms. Samantha (who is always welcoming) and I don't remember the name of the gentleman that would come to clean her room, but he was very respectful and kind...all these folks were OUTSTANDING! I can't say enough about your facility and staff but sure am recommending to anyone I come across that Brush Country is one of the best place to have a love one. Again, thank you very much for all that you do! May God Bless you, the staff, and the facility richly!

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
