As a family member we did not like the care received at this facility

I brought my mom to this facility to rehab from having a fall and breaking both shoulders and broken facial bones. My mother was brought to Village Care Center on a Friday night around 5:00 by a medical transport company from the hospital. She was first brought to semi-private room. This was fine with us because they told her they would move her as soon as a private room became available. They did move her the next morning to a private room. Then in less than 2 hours had decided that someone else needed to be in that room. moving her to another room. Again, not a big deal to us as long as everything else was ok. While mom was in the third room in less than 36 hours she found that the nursing aides were not prompt at all in helping her. On two occasions (in one day) they left her sitting in her room without her call light. My mom unable to get up on her home because she has 2 broken shoulders. Then mom asked to use the restroom, had to wait for that as well. Then left her sitting on the toilet for some time. Then when the aide did come in to help, mom felt like she was "bawled out" because she couldn't help herself get up off the toilet. Mom was there for rehab and did see the rehab dept. on Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday they had her walk. She was complaining of shortness of breath when walking. She sat down for a few minutes and tried it again. When standing again, she told them she couldn't do it, too short of breath. They had her walk some more to get to a chair. Mom was by that time having a very difficult time. The PT had to leave mom alone in the physical therapy room in order to get help from nurses. When the nursing staff got there , mom's O2 saturation was in the 70's. (This is not good) Her blood pressure was not good. They did get mom back to her room at that time, took her vitals put O2 on and then called their doctor and was told to call 911. EMS should have been the first call. Not the doctor. This period of time was greater than one hour from the time the incident happened until 911 was called.. The EMS did get there after they were called and did transfer my mom to hospital. Mom said that at one point during the transfer the O2 canister (the round cylinder) fell on the floor because it was not in a stand. The EMS provider told the staff they needed that in a stand because it can blow up if falls. The staff said they didn't have one. After all of this my mom was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolism, (blood clot in the lungs). Village Care Center of course did not cause this but was very slow to get the help that my mom needed.
Our overall review is very poor. When my mom first got there from a medical transport company from the hospital she had to sit in her room for over an hour (I was there also) before a nurse came in for intake procedures. Moved to three rooms 12 hours, was left without a call light at least 2 times in 8 hours, and left on the toilet for some time. Nursing staff aides and nurses were not prompt with shortness of breath. There are also many other incidences that happened. My mom was is only 72 and mentally "with it" . We had every wish that Village Care was going to be the place for my mom to rehab. It was close to me so I could visit daily and seemed upon first look to be fine. Which we found out was not.
My hope in writing this review is to encourage all families that want their loved ones to go to Village Care Center for rehab to do their homework. It was a "name brand" so we thought it would be good. Look at reviews, which I didn't do like I should have, before committing. Check both sides of the state line. Visit more than one facility. Look at reviews and ratings. Visit the facility more than once if possible. Watch how long it takes for them to answer call lights. And if you end of going to a place that's not good and you don't like it. Don't wait move your family member.

Our Mother's room is never clean, sheets dirty and sometimes she has her same clothes on for 3 days. She spits up some after every meal and it is usually on her shirt. We change it when we go, but clean clothes should be put on each day when the patient cannot fend for themselves. She has fallen since the alarm is not answered quickly and has caused issues. The Laundry loses her clothing; The staff doesn't help her wash her hands or brush her teeth! She doesn't know if its day or night, so she needs help with these hygiene items.
The food is very good most of the time from what we can tell.
We have written on the admitting papers and have talked to the staff that if her meds change, we need to be notified. This does not always happen.
