01/07/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: I had a horrific experience at Kings Harbor Multicare Center. I was over medicated, and severely overdosed. The nurse on call that night wasn't experienced enough to help me at all. There's no Dr. in the entire building. They have a nurse on call, but does not come over there to help you either. They have security, but only for burglaries or a resident trying to leave "good idea"!! I basically had to make my own reovery from all the symptoms of an overdose. Nausea, vomiting, rapid eye movement, light headed etc. The nurses that are administering the medication are inexperienced, and do not pay attention to what a patient should be given. The same incident ocurred the following night, had I not been careful to check the medication before taking it. The next day every "supervisor, director, and manager was in my room pretending to be concerned about the incident, but all they wanted was that insurance money. I was even given a survey, yes a survey about my stay at the nursing home...they could care less!! I want you to imagine how many of the residents are given the wrong medication or dosage on a daily basis due to negligence. PLEASE RECONSIDER!!

01/18/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: This facility's staff shows compassion & caring for the elderly. However, the physical facilities are ill equipped, there seems to be overcrowding and the Manor building's dementia ward's bad odors are overwhelming, with some visitors unable to tolerate the smell. This puts into question proper hygienic care of patients and oversight of same by staff members.
The rooms are incredibly poorly furnished with old and worn-out beds, closets and walking equipment for the patients. Lunch area for dementia patients is extremely overcrowded. Also, activities for dementia patients are limited and appear to lack challenging methods of engaging patients.
Overall, good compassionate staff, but facility rates below average, actually very poor for rates charged to medicare, medicaid and other insurances.

08/31/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Now they have a facebook page to show how "well" they treat patients? Do you think people are stupid? You're not winning anyone over with this window dressing.

05/24/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Yes, I like to know why my Dad is only given a bath 2 days a week? Why a doctor only comes 2 days a week to see the patients if that? The dentist once a month?
Why I found my Dad face down in the day room with drawl coming out of his mouth after he was given a sleeping pill.
Why the patients are put outside of their room like cattle when they clean the room?
What the activity sheet is for if they never do any of the actives with the patients nor take there anywhere?
What quality of life lies within the walls of a room or day room? They don't take him outside, nor do activities with my Dad unless I go there?
Why the food is so bad on the weekends? That my Dad is starving and engulfing the food I bring him/
Why his things are constantly stolen?
My doctor highly recommended this place but I never seen him there.
Why the home health aids are smoking in the middle of the stairwells or in the patients bathrooms.
Why the rooms smell like someone died in it?
Why some of the beds have deep wells of them of the bodies who been there for years, why the air conditioners don't work, why patients sit in their feces for hours.
Why after 3 p.m. there is only 3 people working on the floor all fighting with each other because there are not enough hands to take care of the patients?
Why is this happening? Why is anyone allowing this to happen. I already reported this place to the state. And alone for last month they have 75 complaints against them.
If they are so good they would have more awards other then the one from 2000. That was 12 years ago, Wake Everyone Your Parents are better off in jail.

Response: It's nice to see someone who sees the same things I do. They basically provide the absolute necessities of life without any regard for the quality of life. You are absolutely right, the residents would be better off in jail--for one, they would get 24hr attention, a daily bath and their own clean clothes to wear.

04/13/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: They are taking excellent care of our mom. The heel wound was cured quickly. The activities for dementia have kept her entertained. She seems more alert and responsive. The staff members are caring and compassionate.

Response: bs

Response: You must be thinking of another kings harbor multicare center if you think the care is good. How much did they pay you to say that?

Response: My family and/or I visit DAILY and perhaps that affects the level of care. We go at all times of the day and unannounced. They are moved to the lunchroom, recreation or hallway when they clean the rooms. You can call during the daily to get updates...make your presence known or heard. By the way, I speak for myself and my parent...not paid and no b.s.

Response: Visitors should not be a reason to take proper care of residents. I'm glad your loved one is being taken care of, but your case seems to be a rare one.

Response: That's because she had dementia, she can't remember the harshness

06/24/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My family member was admitted to kingsharbor. I was very disappointed with the care because my family member became very depressed and ill. She regressed to the point where she had to be sent to the hospital and unfortunatly passed away.

06/25/2011 An OurParents User Writes: Kings Harbor is a horrible facility. Many residents have bed sores and are over medicated with anti psychotic drugs. There is a shortage of staff on all shifts, and the administration is more interested in profits than taking care of it's residents. Your loved one would be in great danger in this facility.
