    I just raised my review from one star to four... my first impression was, "This place is a nightmare!!! NOTHING like their website. The rooms are tiny and shared, the toilet is shared by two rooms, 4 people! NO television, no air.. I can't breathe in here, it's disgusting!! The food is totally inedible, absolutely disgusting! The only good thing is Amazon NOW is delivering me some things in an hour...." That very night, Emily called me and wanted to do whatever she could to make me more comfortable.. and she has, short of helping me get into Maribella. But Emily got a fan put in my tiny shared room that night, and a commode.. and offered to even go grocery shopping for me, but I told her Amazon Prime NOW was on their way. Since then, My "ESA" Emotional Support Animal (FELINE) has joined me, and we have even been moved to a private room, so that might rate a 5 right there, if the bed wasn't so terrible. The plastic cover on the mattress leaves me soaked every night.. so Emily is off to see what she can do about that. This came up because I asked yesterday how often they change the sheets, I'd been on these sheets 17 days.. which were immediately changed! So the long and the short of it is, ASK for what you need and you just might get it. Emily definitely deserves the extra 3 stars for the effort she has put in to make me more comfortable. If she'd just promise me this room, or better, until my apartment is ready, I'd give her a full blown FIVE STARS, for all her extraordinary effort. Emily definitely makes this place tick and is the person to see if you have a problem. Thank you Emily!!

    Have come here a few times and I have noticed that they need to update a few things. They need to fix the doors and make them automatic for people with wheelchairs. Although they do have very caring nurses and staff, there is a lot of work they need to do to this place. There are some patients who have mental issues who they just sometimes ignore because the patient does act up all the time. Regardless of the situation people should be treated like humans. They were very nice to the mental patient but could have done a lot more to reassure her that she was safe and sound. The day staff seems to be young adults who are extremely hot. Lol It's not a horrible place, they do a great job when it comes to helping patients out to a point. But there is a lot of work that needs to be done. Oh so they could use a little bit more cleaning and some more smiles and attentiveness.

    This is a great facility. Skilled nursing is not easy but it's clear why this is a five star building.

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
