Barn Hill isn't about care of your loved ones it's about MONEY! When you don't let them bully you the make up lies and attack you! The place is filthy and infection runs rampent! The aids and nurses are nice but the management staff are nothing more than a Wolfpack on heels! I have found @#$% on the already dirty floors and poop splatter on the walls! Found my Mother in bed at 6:45 pm eat a cold dinner with her hands and food all over her and the bed clothes. She can't feed herself due to hand tremors from advanced stages of Parkinson's and they just leave her to fend for herself! I find her covered in food all the time. She has had many infections rangeing from UTI's to infections on her feet! I would never recommend this place to anyone!

Response: My brother and I went to visit a family member at this wretched place,I was appalled. The unit my aunt was in, was in total squalor as were the patients. One aid was on her cell phone while a patient was trying to get her attention to use the restroom. I waited for about 30 seconds the aid paid no attention so I told her politely that cell phone isn't paying you these patients are,this woman needs to void (bathroom)she then took her. All that needed assistance eating they're lunch was a joke. Management came in due to me taking a video of my brother and aunt,she said it's not allowed (maybe because they don't want anyone to see the squalor) well she seemed so detached from the patients so dis-connected.. My aunts bed area was not something I was happy to see either and the bed was not made the mattress was exposed.
The only people I would put in here are the people that own and run it

    Therapy staff 100 and 10 percent effective. As for the stay I found 98% of the nurses, nurses's aides and other staff extremely caring, and efficient. The adeministration staff is never seen, the doctors come around perodically Most are also caring. There is one who would benefit from a few lessons in humanity. That one runied what could have been a good, positive rehabiliation stay.

    Nurses seem to spend more time on the computer then with patients - once specifically comes to mind first name T. is lacking compassion and simply rude. Therapists ??? all should be retrained or rehired..chef ?? two spoons of beans and sliced hot dog- is NOT a dinner !!!!! Good thing ?? all the help - the cleaning stuff and support to the all mighty nurses - ray of sunshine and home. Its a shame - since most of the people staying there really really rely on the help and compassion. Look for another place till someone wakese up and addresses the issues.

    Response: First name M. needs to be retrained as well, simply not well educated

    I am very concerned about the quality of care that is provided to patients at Barn Hill. My fiance's mother had been a patient for several months. When she was first admitted, she was placed in a room with another patient who had CDIFF which is a contangious diesease. Outside of the room was a sign to see the nurse before entering and isolation gowns and masks were placed outside of the room. When I asked the nurse if I should be concerned, she had told me that I had nothing to be concerned about. A few days later, my fiance's mother became ill. She was coughing and had a sore throat. When I asked if they had given her anything, she had said no. When I confronted the nurse, she said that she was unaware that my fiance's mother was ill. She had to wait for the doctor to come in the next day to evaluate her and that they would give her Cepacol but they were out of it.
    On several occasions, his mother's clothes were thrown on the floor or thrown in a garbage can with dirty rubber gloves and used tissues. My fiance confronted the nursing staff several times about this issue. Her son took her dirty laundry home every day; however, there were days when her clothes were missing and new ones had to be purchased. The staff claimed that they would look for her clothes the next day, but nothing was ever found.
    His mother was also on fall precautions. My fiance received a call one evening and was informed that his mother was found on the floor. The nurse stated that she wasn't sure how long she had been laying on the floor but that her vitals were taken and were normal.
    It is my understanding, that if a patient is on "fall precautions", that individual should be on an alarm system so that in case one tries to get out of bed or out of a chair, an alarm is activated at the nursing station. I spoke with a social worker and she had informed me that his mother was not on such an alarm system nor was there any order for her to be on one.
    Her last week at Barn Hill, another patient was moved into her room, making it 3 patients to one room. The room was so tight that the one bed had to be turned sideways against the wall.
    My fiance finally decided to transfer his mother out of Barn Hill. She is currently in a much better facility and much happier.
    I have nothing but negative things to say about Barn Hill and the employees that I interacted with. I am greatly concerned for the patients that are currently staying in such a place.

    Response: Where did you bring her?

    Very poor interaction between staff and patients, when questions are asked about the quality of the patients living environment. When pressed for answers about the patients living environment as well as their health and well being, you receive nothing but double talk from staff and senior staff members.
