Wish I had cared for my husband at home. It's what he really wanted even though he wouldn't say so because of his concern for me. In the end, I feel I should've done better for him the way I would've wanted for me. Too late.

This is a nursing home for the very old. My husband who is not the old was sent there after a knee surgery. He got an infection after 5 days and they didn't even react. I took him to our doctor who sent him directly to the hospital.

My mother was at the nursing facility here from August to Nov 2011. The PA at the facility is non reponsive to the family . I had medical power of attorney as well as surrogate. The PA ignored both resulting in my mother having a massive seizure due to inadequate care. On the morning of the seizure I directed the facility to call 911, they refused saying it was not necessary. They made provate transport to the hospital where she never fully recovered and passed on 1/28/2012

Response: uioikdgy

Response: I had an issue with them not transporting my mother too. They had her wait a day to see the Doctor. He sat at the desk reviewing charts 1-4:30p she complain of a blockage not able to swallow anything. When she did get to the hospital they had to proform emerg surgery to remove part of her bowel within 12hr. They said she wouldn't last without surgery . She never recovered. 4/10/2014

Heartland is a very poor facility. 95% of all the staff have attitude problems and do not have the patients best interest at heart. Seem to be very lazy and do not show proper care for their patients. Have had to follow up multiple times with nusring staff to confirm proper protocol has been completed. Stay away from admitting any of your loved ones. Believe Me!!

The facility did not come recommended. After a careful inspsection we found it to be quite nice. The rehab staff is outstanding. The rooms are OK. Overall I would recommend it without doubt.
