I was a Nurse there for a short time and let me tell you- the staff there are horrible. I was yelled at ,slandered and treated so poorly. I really loved my patients but was refused any more training on the electronic computer system and or the floor. The administration treats the Nurses really BAD there- they fire them over anything. There are hardly any RN's in the place and the one they did have hardly helped anyone and instead they had a LPN for a supervisor who all she did is Yell at you as a new nurse and herself didn't know how to use the computer system or admit a Patient. They have 2 CNA for 30 Pts and at night 0ne CNA for 30 pts and one LPN for 90 PTS who sits on the computer all night doing computer assessments- barely sees the pts. They recently fired someone a LPN in administration for Fraud. Crazy place with NO support at all for Nurses- treats them real bad and none of the Nurses there ven like each other. They take your lunch out of your pay but really don't want you to tale a 30 minute break-you are expected to be on your feet at least 7 solid hrs without a break. and the DON walks around with her little dog in her arms that she keeps crated in her office every day- which really is what she seems most concerned about! No people be careful- place is clean and looks nice but the people are horrible and abusive.!

Wilshire is a WONDERFUL facility. I have had both of my grandparents there for rehab. No place is perfect, and if there was an employee that was not appropriate then the termination of this employee was needed. I also know that Wilshire is not a Geriatric Psych facility, so if your mother was hitting staff than her eviction is understandable. I highly recommend Wilshire for rehab and long-term placement...regardless of how many stars a website gives them...I personally give them 5 STARS!!!!

Dont let the pretty lobby fool you in thinking this is a caring center. My Mother has only been there 6 months. In that time she has been moved 3 times, been hit by a CNA (who was fired) and now she is being evicted because she finally hit back. My Mother is 94 and deserves better. DONT use this facility. THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION BUT see their Medicare rating of 1 out of 5 stars. There is a reason they rate so poorly.

Response: My mother was in thise exact position! After much verbal abuse from her roomate, mother finally conked her gently on the head with a hairbrush. They instantly whisked her off to a psych hospital where she was so over-medicated that her usual spry, bubbly personality was changed immediately into a paranoid, nervous and physical wreck. At that point I insisted they stop the medications they were giving her and I returned her to Wilshire. She was also moved many times for no apparent reason. I was only contacted after the fact. NOT GOOD!
