07/02/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Do you care about your loved ones hapiness in their final days here on Earth? If so, do not by any means leave them in this facility with the staff that they currently have at this Veteran's Home. Here is what I have seen over time here before I made a change. The staff is primarily made up of what would appear to be third world nationals, mostly islanders from Haiti who can barely speak the language. I have never seen at any facility or in the medical field a staff more unwilling to be helpful or at the very least to do the absolute least minimum to try to make the people who live there be comfortable. Patients are left in soiled clothing for long periods of time. When the CNAs or nurses are asked to help the become visibly angry, agitated, make rude remarks such as, "Me on me break now, eating me food now!", or "this isn't my job, they have to help themselves too!", or "When I get a chance to do it, I will do it not until then!" The nurses are always watching television. Everytime I have been there the nurses are either eating, watching television, on their cell phone, or are sitting in a chair with their feet propped up on another chair. Once again they can barely speak any English and I have witnessed the Veteran's becomng extremely frustrated with staff there. The CNAs and nurses either ignore the patients requests or just brush them off. I have witnessed on several occasions the nurses and CNAs making fun of Veterans who are asking for help. When they see me they stop, but the patients tell me,This is how they are treated when no one is there to see what is going on. The facility leaves much to be desired. The rooms are two people to a room, each room is connected and four people share one bathroom that has no fan for ventilation. Basic cable only for these people, and the staff forces them to keep their bedroom doors open at all times even when they don't want the door open. If you close the door they will come and open it and from what I understand when no one is there the Haitian or Jamaican CNAs slam the doors repeatedly in anger in some form of a primative protest of anger at the patients for wanting the door shut for privacy. Upon visiting this facility you will immediatly notice the overwhelming foul stench of fecal matter and feses that eminates throughout the hall ways. There is little to no ventilation or fans in the hallways. The airconditioning works great, but who wants cold air that stinks of human waste??? At times it has been unbreathable. The facility really needs to be cleaned a lot better. The bathrooms are always filthy, the room always have medical waste or food left under the beds from not being swept or mopped on a daily basis. The final straw was when I went there at night once to drop off an inhaler. They Guard who was very polite informed me that I wasn't allowed in because visiting hours are only until 8 p.m., but I insisted. My father needed his inhaler and I wanted to give him a hug and kiss goodnight. So the Guard escorted me in. All of the nurses were asleep in the hallway, wrapped up in blankets, one even had a laptop in his lap. He appeared to be Facebooking it. One nurse jumped up and barked at me in what was either an islander's dialect or the worst broken English I have ever heard, something to the extent of "Mother ya cyan't be here now!" Next two my father's room were two nurses sitting in a room watching televion while the patients were sleeping. They were verbaly as loud as a human being could possibly be. I have never witnessed two people sitting almost no more than a foot away from each other and yet communicate by yelling. They showed no consideration for the patients who were trying to sleep at all. I left disgusted. Do yourself and your oved one a favor. Stay away.
