Services

Special Notes

This facility has been designated as a Special Focus Facility (SFF) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This designation identifies nursing homes whose quality of care has consistently demonstrated failure to maintain compliance, as well as a history of facility practices that have resulted in harm to residents, as measured by recent survey experience. Facilities under this designation have two certification surveys per year by the Department. There must be significant improvements during this designation, otherwise serious consequences can be imposed on this facility. Significant improvement is where no harm has occurred to residents according to the survey history during that timeframe. The Department and CMS will identify whether the Special Focus Facility designation can be removed, or whether additional actions are needed.

Ombudsman

An Ombudsman is an advocate for residents of nursing homes, board and care homes, and assisted living.  Ombudsmen provide information about how to find a facility and what to do to get quality care.  They are trained to resolve problems.  If you want, the ombudsman can assist you with complaints.  However, unless you give the ombudsman permission to share your concerns, these matters are kept confidential.

The State Office for the Aging (SOFA) employs an ombudsman in each county of New York State.  The State Office for the Aging can be reached at 1-800-342-9871.
