CNAs take no time to care and feed residents
more interested in downtime than taking the time to nourish
no movement exercise for any resident mandated they say by Medicaid
strict 11-9 vbisiting hours without exception as per new Director of Nursing woman
it's a for profit facility that banks on profit / administration versus 'do no harm' true medicine and respect for elders that they let sit in hallways and crowded day rooms fed bad food :(
ossification camp run by Medical Director who is ruthless


Response: I spent three weeks physically and emotionally debilitated. The food was inedible and meals only 4 hours or less apart. Food was full of sugar and salt. I lay in bed for hours when I was supposed to walk. I was told that the few feet to the bathroom fulfilled the required walk! Very understaffed with four aids for forty patients.
