There are no G
GOOD nursing homes, PERIOD. Having had experience with nursing homes since 1958 I know about the illness nursing homes are on the face of society. I will always carry the regret for the decision to place my fragile father in one, only to be abused - physically, emotionally, nutritionally, to die too early from this abusive and neglectful behavior. DON'T PUT ANYONE IN A NURSING HOME. I could possibly help with keeping your person save and happy. I cared for Dad a year and others before then.

Ivy Hall has a bit of a bad reputation from years ago but the new DON handles things rather well and knows ALL of her patients by name.

Has nothing to do with that DON (not saying anything about her, don't know her). That nursing home turned around years ago. That bad rep was 10+ years ago. It is hands down one of, if not the best in the area. The owner/admin knows them all by name and snuffs out any bad apples that try to work there in a hurry. TN Gov data has Ivy hall at Four stars for a few years, then 5 stars going into three years in a row.

Pineridge is a great nursing home. The staff there care for the residents and its always clean and smells good. It is an older building but if that's the only thing wrong then they are doing good.

The bad reputation years ago was deserved. Some patients were neglected, without enough food or water and almost no nursing or medical care. At least one got bed sores which were diagnosed at the hopital. Ivy Hall's defense was that the patient got the bed sores during the 1/2 mile ride in the ambulance to the hospital. Let us hope things are better.

It absolutely has something to do with the current DON. As well as the administrator. They both know all the patients by name. They care for every patient there. The know the family of every patient there. I know in the past, they were not a good place. But now, I believe they are. The staff is always friendly and caring of the patients and their families. State scores are pretty good now from what I understand as well.
