Autumn Care of Norfolk
1401 Halsted Avenue
Norfolk, VA 23502
(757) 857-0481

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 stars rating

Primary concerns: This nursing home has received poor ratings in all areas of assessment. It is quite possible that the root of all its problems lies in severe understaffing. For profit institutions will cut costs by reducing staff levels, but this results in the inability of the remaining staff to tend to the needs of every patient and tend to sanitation and hygienic matters.

Sentara Nursing Center Norfolk
249 South Newton Road
Norfolk, VA 23502
(757) 892-5500

Ownership— Nonprofit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: Understaffing is also a concern for this nursing home, which also has an abysmal health inspection history and lacks the quality measures to ensure that each patient has an individual plan in place to tend to his or her needs. This center should be avoided at all costs.

Autumn Care of Chesapeake

Chesapeake, VA 23320

Ownership— For profit corporation

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: As is the case with many nursing home chains, Autumn Care has seemingly placed its own profits over the wellbeing of its patients. Mediocre staff levels have resulted in a horrid health inspection history and quality measures that are lacking. This problem has actually become quite common with nursing home chains in recent history.

4201 Greenwood Drive
Portsmouth, VA 23701
(757) 673-5000

Ownership— Nonprofit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 2 stars out of 5

2 stars rating

Primary concerns: Despite excellent quality measures, this facility is plagued by understaffing and health concerns. Its health inspection rating is only one star, which means patients are far more likely to be injured due to environmental hazards or the spread of disease than the average nursing patient. This alone should make this a center to avoid.

Chesapeake, VA 23320

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
