I Have to say my stay here for one week after my partial knee replacement was not what i expected i was very very dissapointed with almost everything,yes there are good nurses and staff and i so appreciated their help but lack of teamwork, communication made my stay very uncomfortable. When i needed more help 24 hours after surgery i had to wait to long for help so i just got myself out of bed grabbed the walker cryin in pain got myself to the bathroom and back to bed by that time someone came and they said i have to put the light on and i said i did and nobody came. Thats only one of the problems like i said there are good workers there i had a lot of help from the housekeepers and the girls that do inventory they always checked on me, some nurses were very good looked forward when they came on shift. i wish i didnt have to say these things but maybe it will help make things better for future patients.....

Very disappointed with care. CNA staff member called several patients crazy. Discourage patients from walking.

I couldn't believe how my Father was left with his feed line not cleaned and the old man next to my Father knocked his whole bed table down on his legs and my Father pressed the assitants button and nobody came to his aide. I happen to walk in to visit my Father and saw the old guy in the next bed had knocked his heavy bed table on his legs they were cut and bleeding and his food was all over the floor.I quickly with my sister helped lift the heavy table of his bleeding legs.and ran to the desk to get help and finally someone came to help the guy. Someone died the night before and they told my Father and he couldn't sleep all night. Dissapointed in the responce time and cleanliness of my Fathers feed tube and they should not have told him someone died,all they had to say was someone was taken to the hospital my Father can't walk and wouldn't have been able to see what was going on.I will never recommend this horriable place to anybody.

Response: You would be surprized on what goes on in rest homes... like fredrika gets great reviews.. Not, I worked there years ago as CNA, the RN was cleaning a woman with toilet water.. while the client was sitting on the toilet. another insident is where they have family/friends in for the lunch hour. and the family/friends are eating the sick or elderly's food. instead of buying their own plate.. the client continues to lose weight and dies earlier before there.. time. or the people that have a stroke.. they get sexually abused.. because they are limited to moving or speaking...
