stay away. cna's are unwilling to do anything xtra and do not always change gloves after changing a diaper. they do not bring bed pans to the room in any decent time frame thus making patients rely on diapers. also, they are most unfriendly.

My mother was recuperating at Saint Mary Home after a massive heart attack, and then stroke symptoms brought on by a very bad UTI. I stayed in her room with her to make sure she had the proper care at night. There were many friendly and helpful staff at Saint Mary Home and she enjoyed her time there. Thye speech therapist- a young woman-was excellent and very determined. However, there were not enough staff, especially in during the nights. We were most disappointed by two connected issues: the physical therapy and the release process. We were told that a social worker would be working with us from the beginning to make plans for when my mother was released. This did not happen, and we had to run around at the end to put everything in place (my mother could not return to her home because of physical constraints). This caused a lot of stress for my whole family. The release was based on the Physical Therapist saying that my mother would not progress much further despite the family's consistent message that the UTI had set her way back and she was getting better as the UTI was cured. They allowed my mother to be in a wheel chair for most of the day, except for the 1 to 1 1/2 hours of PT most days. In less the 2 months of leaving Saint Mary Home, my mother put the wheel chair away. She now uses a walker when she is out, and she walks without a walker in the home. We did appeal the release and we were rejected. I asked for the back up materials that the rejection was based on, and after reviewing them, I question the accruacy of some of the documents.
The other negative, although this happened in the hospital, too, was that the CNAs kept trying to put diapers on my mother even after the UTI was found. The nurses agreed that diapers should not be used.

my mother went there after breaking her pelvic and was there for approx 4 months. i went daily to make sure of her care. the first day i found her trying to get to the bathroom with a walker she had not yet learned how to use and a cna standind to the side not assisting her!! awful. found her in her urine soiled bed and pajma's daily. i had to demand bathing and linen changing, remind nurses to give her pain meds. i was told i had to do her laundry by her cna which was not true. it was easily some of the worst 4 months of our lives. we were both happy when i took her back to her assisted living facility.
