What to look for in Cleveland Nursing Homes?
- ITS ALL ABOUT THE RATINGS! Once you have
narrowed your list down to a few different facilities (whether based on location or other exterior factor) use the links
I have supplied you on the left hand side to check out the ratings. Foremost, these statistics do not lie.
Check Ratings for Criteria Important to You and Your Family:
- Overall Ratings
Once you have found some facilities that meet your criteria, the next step is checking the score on Medicare.gov - The government
visits nursing homes randomly throughout the year and will partake in a several day inspection of the facility. They rate everything
from food quality and staff behavior to building code and fire escape access.
Finally Medicare breaks down this information into a 5 Star Ratings System
1 being the worst quality of standards, and 5 being of the utmost quality and integrity. A 5 Star Medicare Rated Facility should be heavily weighted as a favorite on your list.
- In Cleveland Nursing Centers, nursing staff should be specialized in providing a number of different
health care and nursing facility related tasks. These may include changings, bathing, &
treatments among others.
- Nursing homes should be well equipped to handle various health & emergency situations including stroke,
trauma, injuries etc. Proper facilities contact private or public emergency services immediately.
- In the Cleveland area there are regular nursing facilities to help and assist people suffering from diabetes,
HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses, you must specify with your Cleveland Nursing Home
provider to ensure your specific illness is accepted in their facility.
- Make sure the staff is friendly. Simply walking into a Nursing Home and speaking to a few staff members
should give you a good feel for how they might treat your loved ones. Many nursing homes use staffing agencies,
these are usually a large downfall. We recommend Private Nursing Homes that specifically hire
staff on a personal basis rather than utilizing such agencies.
- Cleanliness. On your first visit make a serious point of checking the cleanliness of your surroundings.
Smell is a large factor - If the facility smells bad, move on. Infection and bacteria spread rapidly in
Nursing Facilities and should be a serious concern for your elderly loved ones.
