A person can be nonverbal for many reasons and it has nothing to do with hospice.... I have a son who is autistic and nonverbal and that has nothing to do with Hospice. Some paraplegic people, some stroke people, and many others may not have the ability to talk. This doesn't mean they should go on Hospice. Google it....

I don't think anonymous is looking for $$... I don't think Medicare pays people to submit complaints??

Maybe he just wants his experience to be told. Everyone has a story.

My brother and I were comparing Advanced with the Medical Resort in Albquerque because they are the ONLY two places in Albuquerque New Mexico that offer the level of rehabilitation services that they offer. It isn't like there is a choice.

I was glad he gave names because in nursing homes the people who work there are probably the most important part of the situation. I read reviews but I also always realize anyone can put anything on the internet so you have to use your own judgement too.

When we toured Advance Healthcare we were told that Emile Engberson was the adminstrator and the director of nursing was Jennifer Ward.

We met with Jennifer and she really talked fast but it was around Valentines Day so they were doing things for the patients so who knows??

Anyway, hope this helps other people. Thank you. P.S. I don't know how to make a review that isn't anonymous. There isn't an option on this site.

Response: So....actually I just recently left Advanced. I worked there as a CNA, the patient in question was 92 years old I believe, she was in bad shape honestly and required constant around the clock attention. Not a strong suit at AHC, plus the family was difficult to deal with as well, very hostile and accusatory. This patient ended up being transferred to another facility and sadly she ended up passing away almost a month ago.
For the record, Emily is the building administrator, Jennifer is the Assistant Director of Nurses, Jan was the Director of Nurses and shrugged responsibility quite often, leaving Jennifer to handle an awful lot. Watching a family member suffer and see their faculties fail is always hard and I can not blame anyone for being upset with that, however, AHC is NOT equipped to deal with patients in that state. The only thing they can do when patients start failing is send them to an ER. Sometimes the urgency of the situation requires immediate action and can NOT wait for a family member to be contacted, especially if they do not answer their contact numbers, etc. This situation has been blown out of proportion really. Personally angry family members making spiteful and hateful comments without revealing the whole situation is pretty sad. Like this poster has said, you can post anything on the internet. And like this poster said they are glad names were given and they wish they could make the post not anonymous, well you neglected to put your own name in the would have my name and number in a heart beat, however, since I do work in the field I am NOT going to set myself up for retaliation. Good luck to you.

Lack of communication to patients, not following dr. orders for care, patient dumping to the ER without calling patient rep (for patient who is non verbal). Lies and inconsistancies about policies, and disregard for patient made this experience a nightmare. Currently filing complaints to Medicare and Jennifer Ward will be chief in the complaints since the staff relies on her for decisions. My mom was there twice before and my dad was there once (he died as a result of their inability to see that he was really sick with infection). BUT, dad had cancer so who knows... It is beautiful and a very few staff members are nice but do not challenge them in any way. It is really sad because it is one of the nicest places in Albuquerque, but because of Jennifer the whole staff gets infected with attitude and doesn't realize that for a non verbal patient someone (me) has to watch what they are doing. Once you challenge them, you are kicked out. Filing medicare complaint Monday. If you have a straight forward thing like a foot break or something like that I still think it is good.

    Response: Wow. Would really like to give your story some credibility, however, the director of nursing is a Jan White and the building administrator is an Emily Engbertson. So why you trash a weekend nurse is beyond me. I have had two parents at this facility and would recommend no finer institution for anyone, however, again, you state your mom is nonverbal and this implies she should be in a hospice and not a short term care facility. Honestly, since you are so anonymous maybe you are out for money and an easy pay payout. Oh yeah Emily Engbertson take your issues up with the building administrator. Or you can call Taylor Enbgertson. For all those still reading this place is the BEST place to send a loved one, there is compassion and caring from dietary to physical therapy. Go kill the snake at the top not at the bottom. ~Anonymous

    Response: Oh hell yeah this place is great!! The staff is awesome however you might want to check who really runs the place. Go Anonyomous.....

    Response: Kinda disappointed here. What kind of facility stands by and watches as names are thrown out? Oh well my folks are gone but having seen this place (other parents of friends), there really is no comparison, of course this is not a short term place, it is for genuine re-hab....sadly your parents pass.....but really, you lost me at NON VERBAL......

    Response: Wait? Your dad was there but you still sent your mom there? WOW......wait....WOW....and what do you want them to do do? PAY YOU? LOL I should call someone cuz I can not stop laughing at this. Completelely unprofessional to mention a name at all, I hope they sue YOU. WOW who did you get your advice from?

    Response: I hear Mormans like to keep it in the family? Are Treyor and Emily related?

    Response: WOW, wait, WOW, wait, WOW, WOW WOW WOW! Same person must be an employee who else reads reviews when both of the parents are gone????? WOW

    Response: I agree - WOW person is laughing but clearly irritated. Must be an employee. Sad, because the only people looking at this are people in need. I am LOL at WOW's comment (which is anonymous too) that they should sue him. For what? Go back to the staff meeting.

    Response: what does kill the snake mean I have never heard that before

    Response: I am pretty sure they are related

    Response: I thought people had to be accepted into places like this? So if anyonymous had a mom there who is non-verbal wouldn't she have had to be evaluated by them before they took her? Why would someone suggest she needs to be in hospice.

    This is really the best place you can you get in Albuquerque - I mean it is a great place. Weekends are sometimes a little dicey because that is how all facilities like this operate - less rehab, etc. BUT, everyone is friendly, they know each resident by name, they let dogs visit, the rooms are nice, there are a lot of amenities that make visiting easy. My mom and dad were both here for different reasons at different times. Snacks could be fresher and snack deliverers could know that a patient who can't move much might need help - but again these are minor things in the "big picture". The rehab focus is very good. It could easily move to all 5 stars but I know when I look at reviews I want a very honest opinion. There is a hotel right next to them, the rooms are nice and I would choose this facility any given day.
