    The administration changes quite frequently, they do not provide good customer service, it doesn't appear to be enough staff to care for the patients, and the facility is in need of repair. In 2016, my family member was to be transported, by at least two staff members via hoyer lift, but was dropped twice in which he sustained injuries and had to be taken to the hospital. In both instances, Birchwood staff told my family that only one staff member was transporting my family member when he was dropped. If you are looking for a nursing facility, do your homework and read the reviews and ratings before making a decision. My family and I are very happy that our love one is no longer a patient at Birchwood Health and Rehabilitation Center.

    Went to do a tour of Birchwood I must say this facility needs a makeover from top to bottom Facility reek of urine Rooms/bathroom dirty Staff working dirty uniforms/hair not comb The furniture outdated The facility have only 3 floors in operation understaffed. The owner needs to stay off the blog profusely apologizing for every poor review when she knows this place is ran poorly,take the time and money to bring this facility up to date stop pocketing the money

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
