11/02/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: My husband was transferred to Avante from the hospital on Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014. During his 4-day stay, his bandages were changed twice instead of daily as per his doctor's his instructions. He received less than half of the prescribed meds that were listed on his doctor's orders. The staff took his previously prescribed pain meds away from him and never gave them back. When I arrived Saturday, 4 days later, the wound on his foot was coverd by a 2-day old blood-soaked adhesive bandage, blood clots dripping from the heel. The linens were filthy, the pillow case under his foot stained with old & fresh blood. A staff member changed the pillow case for a "clean" one - also stained. His accomodations (4-bed ward) were so crowded that an emergency evacuation would not have been possible. I saw exposed electrical wires, discarded lunch trays stacked on counters of the "common area." My husband's food trays were removed before he was finished eating even though he clearly stated he was not done. This was his 4th and last day at Avante, as I refused to leave him in conditions not fit for a dog, let alone a human being. We were able to walk out with no one asking questions or stopping us. No sign of security. Meanwhile, they billed my insurance company for 2 weeks in advance. I made sure to call my insurance company to give them the correct information.
