10/12/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: This place should be named HELL HOLE.

The staff are rude and don't care about anything except for ending their shift. The staff is also disrespectful and non caring.

If you ever have a problem in this Hell Hole you will never receive any customer support.

Their lack of care almost caused my mother's death.

DON'T ever go here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

06/20/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My Aunt was there as a patient. She had excellent care! The staff were always helpful. They met our every need during this stressful time in our lives. I would highly recommend this rehab/nursing home. It is clean and all staff are very happy to help you in any way they can.

02/16/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mother has been there for 3 years and this is a wonderful facility. Please note the previous reviews are from a person who lets just say "has issues which extend far beyond Oak Knoll." The staff are caring and the facility itself is beautiful. There have been some changes in staff recently which I believe are all for the better. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the facility and the care my mother receives.

09/28/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: not a place for a dependent patient. care is poor regarding walking,toileting and hydration,no fluids are offered other than at meals. patients are not toileted unless they can go themselves or are able to ask,this goes for walking also, aides are not supervised,do not know the care needs of the patients and are not aware of a nursing care plan or even know what this is. they are not encouraged to do anything for themselves and are allowed to be in urine for many hours at a time. the nurses are good but do not follow up with care plans and do not do any supervision.

Response: You sound crazy, Oak Knoll is a wonderful place. Instead of making any kind of valid arguement you just waste your time and keep writing bab thing. It's you in all of these poor reviews you even posted them at the same time. Grow up!!!

Response: You sound like an Oak Knoll employee who ignores any criticism or valid argument. This poster has explained very well a few of the numerous problems with this "wonderful place". If you don't agree with a truthful poor review maybe you should work somewhere else instead of casting stones.

03/04/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Oak Knoll has a communication issue: they do not listen well and need to be told often of family members likes/dislikes,there is very little staff communication between members of staff. They also like to restrain patients for their convience when there is no safety reason to restrain a patient,they are not fans of the state requirement of "least restrictive measure"and do not attempt to enhance quality of life and they are very slow to respond to any alarm or call light. They have family meetings then ignore all the information/requests,say they didn't know something when it has been brought up over and over again. The nurse manager knows very little of what is going on with the patients or on the floor. When you ask to see a nursing care plan they put you off,when you ask an aide if they read nursing care plans they look at you blankly. I would not recommend this nursing home for any patient who cannot speak up for themselves. The more confused,frail patients get the least attention. The only good thing about this place is that it is clean.

Response: I have a family member at Oak knoll and I have yet to see patients restrained there, perhaps the people that are need it for their safety. Think outside the box.

Response: Then why did you leaved your loved one there?
