11/08/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: This facility makes me wonder about the whole rating system. If this is a legitimate 5 star home then why are the user ratings so low? Something is clearly out of whack. The odor on the patient floors is so revolting even the elevators reek. The atmosphere is oppressive which accounts for so many staff being fearful, unhappy, rude and uncaring. This out of date, out of touch management style negatively impacts quality of care. Bottom line: don't let the 5 stars or the nice lobby fool you. If you want your loved one to receive competent care stay away from the Carlton. Ignore the number of stars and find a place where the workers are pleasant and the residents are content.

10/23/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: I'm sure the workers do the best they can, but honestly they are very hard to
understand since English is their second language. Not much information is
given to me regarding my mother or what her room is like. Would be nice
if they could give her one haircut in a year.

    07/03/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Physical Therapy staff is skilled and excellent -- they go above and beyond and are kind to their patients. Nursing is adequately staffed. Two major complaints: once they get you in there, the Carlton makes it very difficult for patient to leave...we got the impression that this was related to revenue flow, i.e. lots of empty beds. Also, the facility itself is in need of a major upgrade -- depressingly old.

    12/13/2012 An OurParents User Writes: The place does not care about the residents needs. The administration only wants your money and will tell you want you want to hear. I would never put another patient in this facility!

    Response: Yes your are right...the administrator pretended to call the nurse and tell him off right in front of me because I had complaints I asked the nurse did he talk to her today and he said no.....Stear clear of this place!

    05/07/2010 An OurParents User Writes: nice place

    Response: This facility is not the cleanest. The patients are hanging out in the halls unsupervised and staff just walks past. All resident are place together. Some are walking the hall talking to themselves while others are acting as if they are a part of staff. I have a family member there that is in their right mind and feels like their going crazy based on what's going on around. The rooms are small and smells of urine. The bath tubs are old and needs to be condemned. My family member ordered coffee and the cup was stained so bad we set it back. Rowena is the administrative coordinator and her staff are really just taking these seniors money. This place needs to be cleaned up bad.

    Response: You are right on spot with this review. My mother is there now to do 2 weeks of inpatient physical therapy. The 1st floor is bright and beautiful. When you get to the 4th floor, it's really smelly and depressing. Every thing is so old and dirty. Yuck. I'm just glad she will be going home soon.

    Response: 2 years later and still the same, 1st floor beautiful, 4fl smells really really bad....housekeeping said 3rd floor is worse....Bait and Switch at its best....getting ready to transfer my mom out of that prison.

    Response: Absolutely accurate -- this is no place for an elderly person of sound mind!
