    I found the staff at Starr Farm Nursing Center is be extremely competent and very pleasant. They were compassionate and patient in the face of difficult situations. The staff constantly lightened the mood at times when patients were frustrated by their medical conditions. I actually enjoyed my two week stay at SF and missed the staff and patients when I left. The facility is very well maintained and comfortable. The design is pleasing to the eye. The food is good. My husband was able to eat with me for a small fee which made the time away from home more bearable. I would have no hesitation about referring others to Starr Farm.

    If I had to spend time in a rehab facility again, Starr Farm would be my first choice. The facilities are very modern, clean and comfortable. In decent weather, there are beautiful outdoor spaces with lovely gardens. More importantly, the staff of Starr Farm are skilled, friendly and efficient. The nursing staff and the therapists are professional and just great people! Thank you everyone.

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
