08/26/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Althea Woodland Nurshing home is under staffed, as one reviewer commented the evening staff is the worst, they need help. My father is a resident there, and he has fallen twice out of his bed. He is totally disabled so his falling was completely nurse error, he didn't just roll out of bed he was placed incorrectly in bed. I don't know what the problem is but the residents at Althea Woodland need and deserve better treatment than that. We are working now to get my dad placed somewhere else.
I visit frequently, the staff are very friendly and attentive when you bring issues to their attention. BUT my dad on the cold floor unable to move or get up on his own is totally unacceptable.
Althea Woodland facility is old and needs to be updated, and when I say updated I mean completely, new windows, the plumbing is bad and toilets backed up, the painting is old and chipping, its old and it smells in there from the front door all the way to the basement. The basement is an old dirty basement. They don't need top of the line, but the residents need newer, better living conditions. Not just to look good, but since the residents live there, it should comfortable. It may look presentable on the outside and the small lobby area, but take a closer look.

    02/06/2012 An Interested Visitor Writes: Almost every nursing center, just like a hospital, that I have been in, sooner or later has had a negative event or staffing challenges. However, I have to say that this center has one of the best customer service presentations. Everyone is so kind. While the center is small, you immediately get that home-like feel. It is not the newest facility. But it is surely one of the best.

    11/18/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My main complaint is that the evening shift is chronically understaffed. Once when at the nursing home in the evening, I saw a woman essentially lying down with vomit coming out of our mouth. When I told a nurse, she was not that moved and did lots of other things before finally tending to the woman. Part of this was the lack of help she had. She was caring for most of the entire floor by herself! Others were no where to be found. If you use this nursing home, be sure to do random evening checks on your family members to see what's going on with them.
