Worst facility ever. Not enough staff and there were 1 out of 5 decent nurses. No drs on call. Food was awful, she would not eat it. Rude, unresponsive and ineffectual social sevices. Did not bathe my mother for 2 weeks with serious infection. She became septic at this facilty and was hospitalized (Died for 15 mins the next morning due to severe infection) but they did not send her there...it took her going to dialysis for anyone who could do something about it to see how ill she had become there. Don't do it!
