11/13/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: This is the worst rehab place to send anyone you care about .. My husband was admitted here on a tues night 8p wed was a good day Thurs was a nightmare.. He had 2 falls no one answered call bell either time. 1st fall I was there had to go out in the hall to get someone to help in as he was down on the bathroom floor. Aides are rude and don't help you. Nursing staff can improve not the best... they had a outside vendor do xrays both times when he fell , after 25 hrs of waiting for results they said no fractures or breaks.. Well he was transferred back to hosp wed because he had trouble breathing and chest pain did ct scan and has a broken rib from the fall. So to get my point across don't send any family member or friends you care about to Putnam Ridge..


04/09/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: The parents of two different friends were in the rehab section several months apart. One friend was not at all pleased with the care and the attitude of some of the aids. Quite different from when another family member of his was there when this facility was only a few years old. They definitely had a bad experience this go round. The parent of the other friend seemed to do well and be happy. As I strolled around the facility while visiting, it became clear that the main floor is definitely where you want your loved one to be. The lower level appears to be more neglected. Did see some very caring staff throughout and also some with bad attitude. Saw some great activities and the young ladies that run the activities seemed very warm, patient, and caring. Based on the two very different experiences my friends' parents had and what I saw on several visits, I would have to say that I would give this place an overall 2 to 3 star rating. If I were to base my rating just on the one bad experience my friend had with his parent, I would give it a minus 1 star.

    10/20/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: Short staffed...food leaves a lot to be desired in the long term area...carpets and some chairs are old and badly stained...Amazing to see that an outdoor sprinkler system is being installed while the above mentioned needs for the residents exist. Activities are wonderful, most but not all of the staff is very caring and responsive. Not as good a place as it once was.

    04/06/2013 An Current/Past Employee Writes: Putnam Ridge is a wonderful place to work. The staff really care and multiple acts of kindness are shown everyday.


    03/20/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: Going downhill. Hopefully they will lavish their attention on more than just the short term area, which is a "showcase"/ money maker, and on their profit margins. I visit here since I know a resident who has been here for quite some time and I have been here often enough to certainly see a negative change in the last few years since the place changed hands, and I think those who run the place know exactly what improvements are needed. There are way more long term residents than short term residents and although the quick turn around in short term patients provides a great profit margin, the place wouldn't be able to survive without the payments they get from Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security for the long term patients. I wouldn't want to have my relative here long term or be here myself though at one time I thought this place couldn't be beat. Hope better things are to come for the sake of those who live here.


    02/24/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Beautiful rehab facility but I agree with the latest review. Lots has changed there in the long term areas and some better staffing would be a plus.

    Response: When my love one entered this facility, I was impressed with the cleanliness of the facility, the quality of care, the activity schedule, the fact that no odors were present, the bright and cheerful atmosphere....that was apparent on the first floor, particularly in the Rehab section.... Over the years, I have visited the lower level only to find it to be a different world as far as upkeep and cheerfulness of atmosphere is concerned compared to the upper level. It is evidence of the saying "Out of sight is out of mind." and it makes me quite sad for those who live there, though I will say that some of the staff there seem to be wonderful and caring individuals which makes a poor situation tolerable.

    I have always felt that compared to other facilities that I had heard about, that this was probably the best of what is out there. However, in visiting other facilities rated not much higher than this one, I have learned that I was wrong. I have found that, this facility has definitely deteriorated in the last 2years or so. The carpeting is worn and stained and although the carpets are shampooed on occasion, they never look clean. In addition to looking awful (not to mention the seams separating and tears)how sanitary could they possibly be kept? Time to rip them up and replace them with flooring that is easy to keep clean and germ free. A good paint job would be wonderful too, especially on the lower level, where some of the chairs are also stained and dirty(I would be very hesitant to sit on some of them for sanitary and health concerns.)

    The food leaves a lot to be desired. It is my understanding that a concern in the most recent 2012 Medicare report on this facility, is the weight loss of residents...the food could be a major reason why the residents are not eating as they should be. The food here does not compare to the food one finds say for instance in a place like Northern Westchester Restorative and Nursing Care. It is unappealing and makes hospital food look like gourment fare.

    You are told that your loved one is receiving certain types of care but you often wonder how true this is. For instance, you are told they receive ROM exercises everyday when they are dressed, but when you are there observing or you question your loved one, you find out they are not exercised in any way shape or form when being dressed. How could they be when the staffing seems inadequate for the # of residents? It makes you wonder if everything else that is supposed to be done for the health and welfare of your loved one is being done. Certain staff members do seem to try to do their level best, but they are overworked and probably underpaid for the services and skilled care that they provide.

    Now let's consider what could be affecting how the residents feel about themselves. Not every resident who needs a bib when eating gets one. As a result their clothes are stained and they look dirty even after their clothing is laundered. That can't do much for the way they feel about themselves. It can only add to the negative feelings associated with being old, sick and in a Nursing. As for the laundry, everything must be thrown together in one machine because white items come back gray and discolored.

    These are only surface items one can see when visiting. I have no idea what goes on behind the scenes.

    On the positive side:
    The Activity staff at this facility is wonderful. They are loving, cheerful, and try to keep the residents occupied and happy. The schedule of events is terrific.

    You will find some excellent nurses who are patient, caring, and very helpful with the residents and the families of the residents.

    The facility itself is cheerful, bright, and airy on the upper level and has great potential.

    It is my hope that the owners and the administrators will take their 1 star rating to heart and get this facility back to where it was when it first opened for the sake of the residents and if they want to reestablish the reputation this facility once had.
