In my opinion I would never and I say NEVER send my family member to this nursing home. There have been several reports of abuse and nothing has ever happened to the accused staff. They STILL work there. There are always bruises on people and Some of the staff verbally and emotionally abuse these residents. It is very sad and I would seriously look into other options. Just by looking at the state survey results you can clearly see all the BAD that happens! If you care at all about your family member NEVER NEVER send them here.
