Do not put your family in this place

Response: I am a CNA applying to these skilled nursing facilities it would be helpful to know why you wouldn't put yout family there.

Response: They don't care about their patients. They allow their staff to take to long to respond to the help button. They also let their staff tell the patients, " that is not my job". If you are a caring person go to Rock Creek or another facility. Good luck.
