04/17/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: We had to move my grandmother out of Selfhelp. She was getting awful bruises on her delicate skin because the nurses didn't carefully use an needle on her arm. We were unaware of the issue until we saw her. Grandma refused to stay any longer and we moved her elsewhere.
