The aides are great here. One thing that I didn't like seeing though was the nurses bossing the aides constantly, they were running in all directions. My mom seems happy, so I am happy as well.

The nurses aids were working way beyond their means. They need a few more people on staff. I watched them run for alarms, only to have other alarms go off in another direction. This was in Speret Hall, which is the alzheimer unit.
