    Often disregarded diabetic needs, serving sugared drinks, some late meals, and giving some insulin inappropriatly. Failure to give needed laxative resulted in poor outcome. Lost clothes in laundry. Did not always clearly communicate patient info between therapists.

    Sunshine garden health facilities is an amazing facility. I am blessed to work with amazing people and even more blessed that im able to get to know and care for the residents here at sunshine. I have worked here for almost 5 years now. The owners are amazing people who truly do care about their employees and the well being of every single patient. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone, including my own family members. One thing I can assure you is that your family member will be in good hands. I am a N.A.C here and I love my job! I get to care for people in their last day's or if they are just coming in to recover for a few weeks. I thank God everyday for giving me a job that I love, in a facility where I know I'm appreciated, and my residents are well taken care of. I give them a 5? recommendation!

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
