Where to even begin with this place! It is a mess and should be shut down immediately! The entire building reeks of urine and poop pretty much all the time. The entire building is filthy. It is as if they are never cleaning the mops or changing the water and continuing to clean or something because I do see housekeepers and see them cleaning but everything is still disgusting.

The staff is extremely rude, unprofessional, and abusive. Staff will cuss all up and down the halls at each other and at residents. They are constantly yelling at residents for asking for help acting as if it was a big inconvenience to them to do the job they were hired to do. Staff will openly in front of residents and guests down the facility, other coworkers, other residents, and make fun of residents. Don't get me wrong there are some good staff but they are unfortunately overshadowed by the bad. In a months time frame they lost I'd say probably half of their management staff because they quit.

Call lights stay on for hours on end. It is very common to go into the halls and see tons of call lights flashing for long periods of time. Most of the time it looks like Christmas time in the hallways.

The administrator seems very disconnected from the facility. I've talked to her tons of times about my issues and she never seems to be listening she is always messing around on her computer, phone, or staring off into the distance when you talk to her. It's very apparent she doesn't care.

Residents will physically fight each other also. I've also seen residents bullying each other and staff does nothing but egg it on or laugh at it. The staff is majority ghetto and white trash who make it very apparent they hate their job and do not want to be there. If that's the case then why not go somewhere else?

State is constantly in the building but never seem to do anything at all.

I would however like to end with some positive things. The rehab team is wonderful and goes above and beyond but they are contracted in from another company. The food is very good. The young girl that runs the kitchen does wonders with what she is given. The staff that left were very caring and tried their hardest and best to change things but I could see they just simple couldn't with what they were given and I do not blame them for leaving one bit. If it wasn't for the therapy I'd probably pull my husband.

Please stay away form this place and I just hope it is soon shut down.

    This is the worst nursing home I ever been in.. The staff was ok, but the upper mangerment was not. The person that run this place don't have respect for that building or staff. I wouldn't put my dead dog in this place I'm very surprise the state haven't shut this place down.... they never have staff and the staff they got is not that great. and as far as clean that place is dirty. and thats because they staff is lazy. Do your self a favor run from this facility..The room all need too be updated cause they are in poor standards

    My mom was in 3 different nursing homes in her life, and this was by far the WORST one. You just don't get the kinds of bruises she had on her face from falling out of your wheelchair. Why they didn't try to wean a recovering addict off of percocet is beyond me.

    During my mom's five year stay, we could not have been happier or felt safer. The compassion and skills demonstrated during her stay were above the bar. When my mom's life came to an end it was just like extended family taking care of her. Our whole family is greatful to the help, support and love that was given to us and our mom.
