    My mother spent the last 7 years at SWCC. She passed away peacefully last week. I wanted to thank all the staff for taking care of my mom. This facility is located in South Austin off Manchaca in a cul-de-sac. Although it is an old facility, it is small and homey. I feel like the residents have developed friendships with each other, and the feeling was that of a large family who looks after each other. I got to know the administrator and most of the staff by name. I do feel like they could use more CNAs, especially on the weekends. There are some CNAs that went above-and-beyond in their care of my mother, and I am so grateful for their care. I find that your loved-one will get better care if you visit often. That way you can address issues on a timely basis. I also liked that there were daily activities for the residents to participate in at SWCC.

    I've been a patient in this pit awhile for physical rehab of a fractured leg. There is a pass the buck &/or just lie about problems here. The food is totally bad. No calcium or protein. Sometimes none at all. The meds are delivered sporatically. I find this is mostly a place for dementia, dying, or psych patients. The phones are NEVER answered on a regular or polite manner. Bedding never is changed regularly. MEN WANDER INTO MY ROOM! There ARE gold star employees here, but they are the definite minority. DON'T COME HERE! THIS IS A REALLY LOUSY PLACE.

    Southwood is located near Manchaca and Ben White, easily passed by since it's located at the end of the street between some apartments. As a high school volunteer there I found it very sad to see all the elderly and even young Garrett just in the facility everyday with nothing to do. Don't get me wrong there's plenty of activities daily for them to participate in but I feel like due to the fact that it's mostly funded by the government that it's not at it's full potential. Therefore they could use numerous volunteers to just spend their lunch break at least just spending time with someone. Especially since some of them don't get visited by their own family very often. Other than that the staff is great and friendly, like any staff team it could use some ironing out but that's just my opinion. (great in full-fulling the needs, and some of the wants.)

    Some of the orderly's and other employees are ok and helpful, and nice. But on the whole the care is poor if not negligent. The facility smells of urine a feces. And I have continually seen my great uncle being ignored, and left to sit in his on filth while nurses sit around the desk and chat. Because it is quote "Not their job." So if you care about your loved ones you should not send them here.

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
