Very poorly managed. Lie to family of patients. Staff is definitely undereducated! Avoid if possible.

    Not sure anyone pays this any mind, but this place is yet another nursing home that proves you had better be on guard and watching out for your loved one, especially if they can not fend for themselves! Waits until patient is so sick to attempt to do anything? Where is the "Quality of Life"?
    Home seems very short staffed, which is even scarier!
    Phone calls to check on family usually generate a very bothered staff member or no answer at all!

    There does not seem to be much interaction with patients in rooms. Not sure if they are understaffed or just do not take the time to interact more! You will not see too much of staff anyway, which is a cause for concern.

    I have been visiting my grandfather every day at this facility for nearly a year now and I am appauled by some of the things I have seen. The medical staff is uneducated, and incompetant. The doctor on staff is mostly just on a death watch - he doesn't read the charts or take action when a resident is clearly ailing (for example, my grandfather got sicker and sicker over the course of a few days until they couldn't wake him anymore and finally sent him to the hospital). The kitchen chooses to ignore dietary restrictions of the residents (they have no diabetic diet, and more than once I have seen patients who only eat liquids sitting forlornly in front of a plate full of real food). The nursing/aid staff has a few helpful or friendly exceptions, but mostly they ignore visitors and ignore medical protocol. Do not send your loved ones here.

    Response: Totally agree with you.....One Dr in the whole facility! It is appalling to see how things really have not changed over the years! Short staffed, patients always left with food trays sitting in front of them and can not feed themselves. The front area of this home is just that.... A Front....check out the other wings! Very sad! If they didn't have dementia you'll end up looking and acting like you did. I think inspections need to happen more often and let's make them "unannounced" because truly the ones who really see what's going on in there are the patients and family that visit often.

    FYI0-Staff generally does not answer telephone on a timely basis. Especially, Holidays like Christman when I have been trying between 10:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. on about a 5 minute basis. Only one line is ringing without answer. To call via a second phone receives a busy signal. Similiar situation on other holidays!

    It is a very clean place, but I dont feel my family member got the help thye deserve and need. Quality of care is okay, but they seem very under staffed.

    Response: This must be a coworker writing this.....
