12/15/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I can only say 1 star is 1 to many but that is the lowest rating I can give. What a shame places like this exist!
Lets start with condition of the place which is poor. I had to ask 4 days in a row to get a TV fixed ! and even then that was not even done properly.
The care is poor you have to ask several times to get a responce which usually took between 15 minutes and a half hour in most cases. The elevator was broken or working poorly for 5 straight days.
Fortunately they had no fires as the people on the 2nd and 3 rd floors would have been toast! If medicare gives this place 4 stars then something is wrong with the rating system or someone was owed a favor.
There maybe worse places but I do not see how. Go somewhere else is the only advice I can give based on my experience with this place

04/13/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: They overmedicated my mom when she was there for rehab. She had seizures. They did not respond to her calling to go to the bathroom, she fell and broke her hip. They gave her too much insulin and she was in a coma. Her roommate found her. They diagnosed her with pneumonia and treated her there. Next day she was unresponsive it was the overmedication again, taken to hospital. They broke HIPPA laws Betty Boe broadcasted my mom's condition on a crowded elevator. Betty Boe also used coersion to get me to sign do not resusitate on her chart as it would be, "Too disruptive for other patients." If she had heart failure. Just the pits, and they do not go over Medicare and your insuracne benefits before admission. They take you in and say Medicare will cover everything. When you leave, they send you outrageous and unjustified bills.
