The nursing staff is horrible. Most of them are only there for their paychecks. Patients not bathed on regular basis. Meds not given in a timely manner for those in pain. Patients wait sometime 1 hour for meals to be given to them due to nurses not showing up in the dining room at the tables. Nurses ar rude. If family members are in need of medical attention, only nurse assigned will help, no others will assist putting patients at risk. Nurses do not follow doctors orders in charts. Nurses ignore familys requests and argue with family members. Nurses are rude to family members and then take it out on patients. Ombudman and div of aging investigators are about worthless with their investigations and are biased in my opinion toward the nursing home. I am POA for my mother and have been lied to by the nursing staff, adminstrators, directors and doctors, have complained and been dismissed by all regarding real complaints of neglect and abuse of my mother in this facility for months. My mother has been injured and now has no use of her left arm because of this injury and nothing has ever been done. She came into this facility with a broken hip for rehab and is now a cripple and will never walk again.

Response: not nice place to work at all.its like a devil's place

My mother fell in morning before 10 am...and NO ONE was contacted...they gave excuse that they had wrong phone number for my father. But its interesting how they had my number (and I was on HIPPA form)..and they never called me to get my dads number. They did Not call a doctor despite knowing my mother was in there for rehab from fall and brain bleed.They sent her to rehabilitation in the morning AFTER her fall. When I arrived to see my mom she was in bed...lights out...laying flat. SHE is the one who told me she fell. After the Nurse in charge saw how upset I was she said she would call the doctor.. Only called a doctor AFTER I arrived at around noon what kind of place is this!!!!!. The Doctor said to xray my mom...AND she had a broken hip...sat there ALL day with a broken hip. Its all documented and they will know who this is by my posting this.
