The safety of the residents should be of utmost concern of this facility. It is our feeling that when a concern is brought forward there is no follow-up to ensure these residents are protected. VERY UNFORTUNATE FOR THOSE REQUIRING CARE.

    This nursing home is not a caring facility. They do not take the patient's best interest into consideration. They are cold and uncaring. They do not try to get to know their paitents. They were cruel to my parents. They had no consideration of anyone's feelings regarding anything. I am so sorry my parents ever had to go there. They were very difficult to work with regarding treating my parents with dignity and kindness. A few of the nurses and aides were very good, but the management was horrible. Don't send anyone dear to you to them.
