11/13/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I was very disappointed in the care my mother received at this facility. The staff was not responsive to her requests for assistance, despite being told she should not stand, walk nor attempt to go to the bathroom without assistance. She regularly waited 20-30 minutes to be accompanied to the bathroom, despite having renal insufficiency . Her medical condition was not properly supervised and after just 1 week at the facility, I found she needed to be returned to the hospital with Congestive Heart Failure and in worse condition than prior to her admittance at Heath Village. On the plus side, I found the physical therapy department to be very professional, knowledable and responsive to my mother's needs. I will not be returning her to Heath Village once discharged from the hospital. I would recommend anyone who places a loved one there, to be very present and ready to advocate for the patient's care.
