04/09/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: These people are awful. They pay no attention to charts or the patient. My grandmother, who has been on a feeding tube, cannot swallow. When she asked for pain medication, they mixed it in pudding on a tongue depressor and tried to shove it down her throat... the woman CANNOT SWALLOW. Not only would one look at her chart confirm that, but the fact that she is constantly attached to feeding tubes should verify that as well.
Don't pay attention to the five star ratings of this place... if you look, they are all made by the company, not actual residents.

01/10/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My brother was transferred there from the Schwab Rehabilitation institute about two months ago. This is the best nursing home that he has ever been in! I commend the staff for their efforts in caring for him. Their attentiveness is outstanding! I would recommend this facility to anyone.
