    05/18/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I do not understand who is giving 5 star ratings to this place but is definitely not patients or there family members the place is terrible

    04/14/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: This is a horrible facility. Do not be fooled by it's appearance. If you care about your loved one do not send them here. Many of the nurses and aides are incompetent and abusive. When concerns/complaints are raised the Administator and nursing management are quick to dismiss the issue. When our loved one is more settled, we plan to file a complant with the State and write a letter to the board of directors.

    01/17/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The LPN are fabulous!! the aides and other "weekend" staff need training or another career field.

    11/05/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Review - Second Floor Care
    The vast majority of the aides were downright abusive (physically and verbally), with few exceptions. Medications were commonly missed, and medical and dietary directives were not followed. The facility is severely understaffed, and nurses are overwhelmed. The average response time for a call for assistance is well over 30 minutes. An aide or assistant will enter room to quickly turn off the call light so it is not recorded, but no one will return to assist your loved one for 30-45 minutes, sometimes longer. The administrative staff will make all kinds of promises, but staff does not deliver and there is no follow through. A lack of continuity of care is a real problem at this facility - contact with the few aides and nurses who seem to care at all is fleeting and sporadic. Residents/patients are often left sitting unattended for prolonged periods of time, often till quite late at night. Physical therapy is a joke here - you will spend more time sitting in your wheelchair waiting for a therapist than time engaged in therapeutic activity. It is an embarrassment for the Meridian name to be attached to this facility and you literally risk the life of your loved one by leaving them in the "care" of those at this establishment.
    Be forewarned.

    02/20/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I had such a horrible experience the facility has the most nasty abrupt staff you will ever face. I pitty anyone who gets talked into going to such a horrible nursing home.they deserve zero stars

    12/10/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mother-in-law was cared for in this facility for 7 years. The staff provided excellent care overall although I would have preferred higher staffing levels. She thrived in this caring environment which was a pleasant surprise for her family.

    10/06/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My 81 yr. old mother was admitted to Shrewsbury, NJ center after cervical spine surgery for rehabiliation. Some of the nurse-aides are abravise and not gentle when dealing with patients. When the nurse-aide responds to my mother's call the aide told her she needs to wait 45 minutes; TWICE. I believe the nursing staff is not experienced in caring for this type of surgery either. To top things off Meridian schedule a follow up visit with her surgeon and transport by ALERT ambulance for a follow up visit with her surgeon in Summit, NJ and hour drive with Meridian giving me, her son, or family member advance notice. They know very well that I've accompanied her on every doctor visits. Communication is terrible. I highly do not recommend this facility and better yet Meridian. I give them a negative -5 stars.
