10/16/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: Do not recommend. Medically dangerous. When my dad had diarrhea for three days, the nurses told me it was in his head. Nothing on their shift. He was fine. Until i brought one of them over to examine the orange colored foul excrement at which point they started antibiotics and called the doctor. When he was transferred between floors the medical staff on new floor had no idea about his past medical history, new diagnosis/medical issues from the previous week while he was an inpatient in the same facility (not a priority to read notes). New doc hadn't noticed two inch wound on his chest (basic tenet of medical care is to examine patients). If you care for your relative try to have them go somewhere else, this place should be shut down.

09/29/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: My husband, since deceased, requested soap in the bathroom for three days. An aide walked in on him while he was urinating. Another aide sat him in the dining room so he could not get out when he had to use the bathroom. Another aide through his cell-phone in the laundry. The place is dirty,cheerless and unlit. The doctor, nurses and social workers were good, but they cannot the horrific quality of the aid workers who
were demeaning and abusive. Don't send anyone you love there.
