    One particular dirty old man doctor here kept sexually harassing my mother, as well as a few strange instances with other doctors when I went here as a child. Be very careful with some of the old perverts here put alone in a room with you if you're a woman!

    The nursing care my father received in the Med/Surge department of this hospital is second to none and we have been to many hospitals of late. Thank you to all the nursing crew and the behind the scene staff members. We will always remember or positive experience.

Compare The Number of Problems

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
