Awful facility, disorganized, non-caring. Even the response on the web page is totally uninformed and does not apply to the review. Typical.

I was employed at this facility and left it because I was ashamed to be associated with it. Poor management trickles down. I overhead on more than one occaision the staff being berated by the administrator. The emphasis was not on patient care or safety but on how to save another nickel. I witnessed such poor caretaking including a pt actively having a stroke and not having staff report it. I would rather struggle with a family member at home than allow them to be institutionalized in such a place. Staff turnover was incredible due to the way they were treated. Care inconsistent. There are much better facilities in this city.

    I am currently a surveyor for CMS inspections and will hopefully bring this facilty up to excellant standards. I know that there are miscommunications and hopefully with new management the trust of resident families will become excellant again.

    I would stay away from this facility at all costs. I had terrible experiences there. Their control and record keeping of medicine dispensing is awful. I was in pain for 16 hours and was told that I could not get more pain medication as I had had what I was supposed to have. Of course, they just could not keep track of what patients' were getting and I should have been able to get the pain medication hours before. I suffered needlessly for hours. They also almost gave me medication that was not for me. I refused it so I was lucky.
    They were supposed to do rehab, Physical Therapy but cancelled multiple times.
    There were constant problems. Even the list of medications I was taking home were wrong. I would not sign for them until the list was corrected.
    There was water on the floor yet no one moved to wipe it up until my friend asked them do wipe it up.
    These are only a few of the problems at this facility.
    Don't be deceived by the physical environment which looks nice. The only good thing was the food.


    Response: That was an unfortunate experience you had. There are many things that are simply corrected or explained though. Medications are very controlled and would have reported to a higher authority, and depending on the manufacturer, sometimes come in different colors even,which is common if you've ever changed pharmacies. I Would actually ask those things if I had that experience...as for not having recieved therapy...I wouldve reported as well....most therapy departments are very diligent in proving service...usually therapy is provided except for circumstances where the pt is either refusing service, not approriate for therapy or just no forseeable benefit. the regulations-I've looked into are very clear, medicare won't keep paying for services that a pt declines 4/5 days a week. As for pain medication if say the pt had been medicated every 4 hrs already on a schedule, the nurses seem to do their part well..but a disagreement w any provider as far as something that important is a good reason for a higher authority to intervene. sometimes people aren't awawe that their list of medications had changed when the were in the hospital...its too bad that sometimes people see those changes to our benefit as errors though.

    If you love your parent/s DO NOT put them in this crap hole. My mother was there , thre first day they left her in her room and her neph bags were full and hanging off her bef and she was crying because they were hanging off the bed and were pulling. Her ileostomy bag was so full and she had been asking since the morning for someone to empty them and they would say Ill be right back and would never return. My mom then had several mini stroke one day and couldnt talk. Someone dialed the phone for her n she hung up on me after a short babble. I waited a bit thinking she was sleeping. I called the nurse and she said she didnt know and hadnt checked on her even tho she had been on the floor for a hour. If i hadnt of called and alerted them they wouldnt of know for hours and she could of died. NO ONE called me. A lady named Jan whos the head of the nurses promised me anwsers and would call in a day or two. Never cslled. If they hadnt of tried to keep some of her personal items she would if never called. Her anwsers were lies. Bottom line this place is horrible. My mother also became septic in there care.

    slow response to nurse call light,without changing left soiled bed for 2 days without changing, patient fell out of bed slow response for help no incident report filed, no or very little follow up for in house treatments. broken tv never fixed many more concerns about care and safty of patients one star is more than a generous rating
