07/20/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Our elderly mother, was recently discharged from the Burke rehab unit at Schervier after breaking a hip. She enjoyed her stay at Schervier very much. She said the staff, nurses, aides and therapists were all lovely to her. She enjoyed the meals, therapy sessions, and the kindness of her caregivers. She had only good things to say about her stay. Although she is glad to be home, she said she will miss it there. She is doing very well, thanks to the caring, professional and dedicated staff at Schervier. Thank you for taking such good care of our mother. God bless you in your good work.

03/24/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Care on the first floor, in the sub-acute care unit was reasonable. The one strange thing is that they told Medicare that my mother was no longer in need of therapy before IMO it was anywhere near reasonable. This put us in a position where we couldn't take here home and care for her, and were forced to pay full price (we were told that ALL rooms, short and long-term, were $535/night, contrary to the numbers shown on this site).
Once we were stuck there (without Medicare), they moved my mother to a room on the 3rd floor which they claimed had identical care and service. The 3rd turned out to be beyond a nightmare, and reminiscent of the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
Upon arriving, my mother was told that she had to go to a "meeting," and here wheel chair was rolled into a room with about 15+ "residents." Additional chairs were strategically placed around my mother so that she couldn't move her wheelchair. The television was turned on VERY loud, and the "meeting" consistent of nothing but sitting. My mother asked to leave, and was told "[you] can't leave until the meeting is over." My mother said she needed to go to the bathroom, but was told "[you] can't go to the bathroom until the meeting is over." At least one other "resident" that was not able to speak, simply banged on his wheelchair about once a second for the full 4 hours. Finally, she was "released" and rolled back to her room, where she was then left unattended (thankfully!!!), and she called me to tell me what was going on!?!?
IMO, there was also an attempt to get my mother adicted to drugs. She was regularly given pain meds, and had to consistently turn them down, or insist on taking a lower dosage (very strange). When we tried to leave, the "Social Worker" warned my mother that "she may not be able to get drugs as easily as she did at Shervier" (which I didn't realize at the time, appeared to play to a potential addiction... which fortunately did not exist!).
This same "helpful" Social Worker called the nursing home we were planning on going to, under the guise of "helping" with the transfer, and told them that my mother was wheelchair bound. The other home would not take people that are wheelchair bound! Fortunately, the "diagnosis" was completely fictitious, and my mother demonstrated to the nursing evaluators from the new care facility her ability to walk 30 feet with a walker. This fictitious "wheelchair bound" diagnosis is totally at odds with the report to medicare, that indicates that medicare was no longer applicable, as here walking "10 feet" represented a "plateau." I believe the fictious diagnosis was an attempt to further trap my mother at Shervier.
It was also interesting that on the 3rd floor, despite claims of "identical rooms and identical staff," there were no house phones, such as were present on the 1st floor. IMO, this was helpful in isolating the patients.
I could go on with additional accounts... but the pattern and practice should be clear.
Bottom line: Don't go there. Try to get out... if you can... especially if you're off the 1st floor!!!
p.s., Reports surfacing today 3/24/2011) suggest the CEO was being dismissed in an investigation centered on Medicare fraud. Be sure to google for more up-to-date status info.

10/16/2010 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My Mom was discharged to Schervier twice after hip surgery (9/15/10) at St. Joseph's in Yonkers. The rehab staff got her walking 6-8 steps in a couple of days, but the nursing staff took out a catheter (good idea) waited just 8 hours for her to pee, then put the catheter back in. She got massive urinary infection 27,000 white cell count, back in the hospital 2.5 days after she left. After a week in hospital she couldn't walk any more. Sent back to Schervier and they didn't give her the prescribed Lasix so she blew up like a balloon, and got effusions in her lungs. Was in heart failure (diastolic). Doctor couldn't be reached for 2 days. Social worker never returned a phone call or a page. Doc misread her Xray as pneumonia. Back in hospital. Outlook bleak now. Thanks Schervier!
