    11/11/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: I am a current resident of Medford Multicare Center. While no one likes being in a nursing home, I needed the care and I am very pleased with the treatment I received. They bend over backwards to accomodate you & when you have a complaint, they do something about it! They definitely aim to please! For my stay at Medford, they took great care of me. In my opinion, Medford Multicare is the best nursing home & if I needed care, I would return to Medford again! Joan George

    Response: My mother died there back in April 2009. She had been at Medford Hamlet Assisted Living when she took a fall. She went to Brookhaven Hospital, did not have surgery but was then sent to Medford Multicare for rehab. Because she could no longer navigate without a wheelchair she couldn't go back to Assisted Living. Not to upset her with another move she remained at Medford Multicare. It was always depressing to go there and see patients lined up near the nurses desk, down the halls or in a larger room with a TV that nobody was even watching. They all seemed out of it. My mom was always thirsty. I would ask for juice and it rarely showed up. I sometimes went to a refrigerator and took some when nobody was looking. By the time I returned to my mom she was asleep and God knows if she ever drank it. She needed help to eat. Food would remain on a tray near her bed, untouched. The diapers were not changed when needed. I tried to keep a friendly repoire with the attendants but it didn't help because they really didn't care. She was there for about 6 months total and had lost weight. Her body wasn't nourished. On the day she died an attending M.D. called asking if he could order a feeding tube, something she NEVER wanted. I said "no". Four hours later I got a call that she had died. It seemed suspicious but being a trusting person I just accepted it as her time to go. Knowing more now about the lack of care these residents/patients receive here, I wonder if she was just "put to sleep" to make room for another money making patient. Very upsetting and very frustrating.

    04/05/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mother "fell" at Medford right "fell" two black eyes. This place is a joke. Don't go there, there are better places get an education on other nursing homes and then make a decision. My mom is gone now and I feel guilty everyday.

    03/26/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My family member was there for just over 2 months and the care was horrible. I don't know what i would've done if we needed longer term care. Staff was rude from start to finish. i found maybe 2 staff members that were pleasant and the rest I can't believe they do this for a living. Every time you complain or say something they get mad or treat you like a nut. So sorry to say that I would not recommend this to anyone and was bad enough that I am actually writing this !

    03/08/2013 An Current/Past Resident Writes: I forgot to mention that Medford took great care of my lovely wife, Mary Buffini, for more than a year while she was dying of cancer. We were married for 50 years and I still miss her every day! The nurses & aides took care of her as if she was their own mother! They were WONDERFUL! The staff always goes beyond the call of duty. I mean it! -James Buffini

    03/20/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Face it, there are good reasons why this facility consistently receives one-star reviews from year-to-year, no matter where you look. Case-in-point, we discovered, much to our dismay, that they had left the dressing off of my mother's stage three bedsore and - it was contaminated - deeply - with potentially infectious fecal material. We reported it and the problem was fixed but not taken seriously - but - the very next day the same incident happened again - yes - the bedsore was left undressed and there was fecal matter all over it and deeply inside of it. Completely unacceptable.
    And that's just for starters.

    04/26/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: It depends on what floor you are on and which staff you have. On the second floor my father was treated with kindness and care and received much attention. Once they realized he wasn't dying anytime soon, he was moved to the third floor, where the residents are treated as "jobs". Everyone is lined up in wheel chairs, propped up. A typical scenario on 3C will be residents propped in wheelchairs with the TV blaring, a woman who cries for a good portion of the time (with no interaction from staff or anyone else). I was away for two weeks and found my father to be dehydrated. His feet were peeling off in sheets and his skin stayed lifted up when gently pinched. Did not go back down. When I raised a concern about this I was treated as 'persona non grata'. there is no respect for individuals. I would call liken it more to an insane asylum. We are moving him to Glen Cove. The staff is really divided: Some are excellent and very caring and attentive. Others are slackers and shouldn't be working with living beings of any kind.

    Response: * regarding the above post, which I wrote, the care did get better after I spoke with the nursing supervisor, but in general, they are understaffed. When I am able to find an aid who is available, they are helpful. It is frustrating when I voice my concerns because I feel like I am being viewed as a 'bully' or a massive pain in the neck by advocating for my father.
