07/02/2012 An OurParents User Writes: The care is adequate but the rehab leaves a lot to be desired. I do not believe that they are aggressive enough in their rehab plan for the patients. I think that patients could make more progress if the rehab staff would tailor therapy session differently. Looks to me that they do the minimum required just to bill the insurance company
I think that Tom is rude and that Stacy lacks initiative and imagination in her rehab routines. I think that Debra and Lindsey are pathetic excuses for speech therapists I think that Gina tells tall tales
I think that Monica and Linda should be monitored in their CNA work. I think that they are rude and inpatient and may have potential to be abusive.
I am not confident that meds are distributed properly. For example people with Parkinson’s need to have meds at precise intervals to combat the tremors
