02/02/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Although they continually boast that they have a higher than average patient to staff ratio, this is very hard to believe when you are there. Makes you wonder if the large staff are primarily for administration rather than nursing care. Our experience with the aides was better than with the nurses. It seems to be common practice for the nurses to take lunch/dinner breaks with no coverage for them while they are gone. Just the other night my father needed morphine during the night and it took 45 minutes to find the nurse. It was 4:45 in the morning and an aide said that the nurse would be available after she
finished "feeding" a patient. Turns out that she was on her lunch break.
St. James spends a great deal of time and money on public relations and very little on the actual care of the patient. Please do NOT be taken in by the slick image.


Response: This place has been a godsend. I was burdened with a house I neither wanted or needed. My children were scattered. My husband and many of my friends were gone. I was very lonesome. St James has meant a better life for me....friendly, interesting people, many leisure activities, and I still can choose privacy in my comfortable apartment when I want it.

09/08/2010 An OurParents User Writes: They have high staff turnover with interupts continuity in lives of residents and use intimidation when administration is trying to make changes that are for their gain and not the best for residents. stay away from here even though it has the facade of an upscale place.
