They overdosed my mother. She was comatose and they opened her mouth to shove more sedatives in. She was almost dead before a family friend called 911 and rescue gave her 2 doses of Narcan. Staff is CONSISTENTLY agency (temp) staff who don't know the residents and their needs, or even what the facility procedures are. They may be good people but they may never work there again, so they are not invested in providing good care. EXTREMELY poor care. My mother was often soiled and family ended up cleaning her up. Staff was rude if our family asked for anything. The call bells ring ALL THE TIME and are just ignored. It could be 15 to 30 minutes before they answer a call bell. They shut the bell off, say they'll be back in a minute, then never come back. My mother needed assistance for toileting and frequently cried as she could not wait the length of time it took for someone to come help, even when I went into the hall or to the desk to beg someone to help. I have talked with other family members whose loved ones received terrible care there and even one family whose mother was ALSO overdosed. This is inexcusable.

We moved my mother to an older facility in the area where she gets fantastic care. Before it was Seal Rock, this was a horrible facility that Seal Rock purchased - it was renamed and renovated but it is still a horrible facility. I wouldn't suggest this facility for anyone you love.


Response: Agency staffing is double edged sword as near as I can tell. It seems every facility/hospital has agency staffing at some point. I can honestly say that being here frequently over the last 4 years and being an avid observer that agency staffing will be around forever... taking its turn in different facilities/hospitals forever. It's like a cat n mouse game: make More money and be sent wherever whenever or take pride in your job and work a regular schedule at a place you like. At some point these agency staff members will seek Jobs when there's no needs for agencies to fill. Now let me say that I observed many regular staff quitting around the same time (in a year period) and I had to see what was going on. After researching and digging it became blatantly clear me that the staff leaving all had one commonality: they had all been eaten alive day in and day out dealing with certain patients or their family members (who appeared to be some of the most unrealistic, pampered life, or come from nothing with all sorts of demands, needy- more wants than any imaginable person could want). It's a double edged sword! I can't tell you how many times I'd hear these people make threats about calling the state or the ombudsman, but over trivial miniscule things that aren't even reportable. Imagine working under that stress day in and day out. I had thought about calling the state or ombudsman program myself (as a concerned family member) to report the @#$% these people put these poor nurses aides through. The entitlement of these people is crazy! My family member has since passed away and I am still happy with this place and the care provided to my grandmother!
