02/27/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Giving one is too much for the facility. They provide very, very, very bad services. Since it is a for-profit rganization, they just willing to get easy money and are not eager to provide quality services. The social worker is the worst there. She is not eager to do the best of job. She would host family meeting without any information regarding the patient's current status, but she would like to keep the patient at the center for a longer period of time. Is this making sense? The doctor there barely shows up and never return any calls. How we can get the updated status of a patient? I am really question how the patients were evaluated whether they should stay for a longer time or not? NEVER and EVER place your loved family members in this facility if they need any short term or long term care.
