This place is disgusting. It is filthy and understaffed. The rooms and bathrooms are very dirty and the residents are not well cared for. I have heard residents crying out because they needed to go to the bathroom. They were told they had to wait. Sometime you cannot wait,but that did not seem to bother the so called care givers.
They did very little to help the residents. The doctors and nurses are also heartless. They could care less about these elderly people. Many times these people are in pain,but are afraid to speak up for fear of retaliation by the medical staff. Think twice before putting your loved one in a horrible place like the Hebrew Home and Hospital of Westchester.

My mother was a resident at the Hebrew Home of Westchester until we found out how horrible the living conditions were, how uncaring the medical staff is especially if the resident needs special help.If the resident has dementia they keep them on anti psychotic drugs and the medical staff is too ignorant to realize that in some patients it works just the opposite. The caregivers are lazy and incompetent leaving the residents in bed all day,because that is easier. Please think twice before sending a loved one to this nursing home.

Staff has been severely cut, it is a shame how the elderly are just left sitting around most of the day just waiting to eat. They go to meals an hour or more earlier just to get a seat in the dining and just sit and wait. There is little conversation going on and most feel so lonely and abandoned by everyone, very much depression. Staff knows the place was sold but won't reveal a thing about it. Activity staff employees have been let go. Of course the children of these elderly feel terrible guilt, they see their parents are miserable just waiting to die. No one wants to be there.

    Very short on staff, therefore many who are in severe physical need are given the most attention. If a patient is walking with walker they are on their own. Promises of health care by individual drs., but dr. visits are limited and by the time they get to your parent it take most of the year.

    Tried home health care workers first in the apt. that was a disaster. They came late left early did very little, they had no managerial supervision. Our dad became more and more in need of assistance. We had no choice but to put him in a nursing home. They are short of help, their patients are very needy, especially dementia units. Yes diapers are often soiled and no one changes it. It is a torture for the parent and the children whom feel immense guilt for putting them there. Living too long, and reaching back to the stage of an infant is a horror for all in witness of this stage of life. The only answer is if your a multimillionaire and have round the clock expensive private care in you home, with real nurses and visiting Drs. eventually you can pass in your home with family around you, other than that it is a terrible thing. I hope I am gone before all of this. They do not use much heat in the winter, patients wear layers,and sweaters and sweat shirts so of course there is very little if none of air conditioning in summer

    Horrible place. There is a lack of consideration when it comes to patients' needs, and the care here is substandard. There were so many things that went wrong, it would take forever to list, but it started out with a room that was not cleaned after the previous patient (bathroom was filthy), then there was no doctor in sight to speak with, aides were always too busy to tend to bedpan needs (it's true -- they do tell the patients to go in their "diaper," I heard it myself), a lunch tray chock full of sugar and carbs given to my diabetic mother (sugar soared over 400 good thing she had no appetite and did not eat much), oxygen hose was off her 02 machine and under the bed (she is COPD and needs oxygen 24/7), blood sugar was not checked during the night as ordered, shortest wait time for call bell response was 20 minutes, left on a bedpan for 45 minutes, you get the idea.
    Repeated life threatening mistakes are inexcusable, and the lack of respect for the patients is unacceptable. As part of training in type of work, they should have to spend one entire day in bed. They cannot get up to use the bathroom or get anything for themselves and must rely on someone else for ALL their needs. Maybe then, they will have an understanding of how much compassion and care is needed in this field.
    Needless to say, we did not feel comfortable leaving my mom here alone without a family member present, so we transported her to another facility where she is getting great care.
    And another thing, there are no TVs in the rooms. Bring your own, and hope that you can find something to watch on only a handful of channels.

    Response: Please tell me where your Mom is now and is getting great care. I would like to move my Mom out of there as well.

    My stay at this facility was in the sub acute recovery wing. I was there for 7 days and nights. The staff and support personal were great. I also got a first hand view of how they assisted the full time residents. I was amazed at the dedication and care these people provided. I felt as though I was in the presence of angels, really wonderful people doing a truely wonderful job.

    07/19/2012  -  An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes:

    Lack of recreation for residents. Country kitchen is merely a place to serve a meal and control portions. Residents are not allowed to eat during a time frame to give more freedom but rather they are placed in an area and given the food. Cleanliness is not a priority. Staff is over burdened, which results in poor response time to a resident.

    04/21/2012  -  An OurParents User Writes:

    Staff needs to be TRAINED on how to treat patients. They are there because of sickness, broken hips etc. NOT because they want to be there. Most of the staff are very rude to patients. Hopefully some day they will be in same situation!! It is really a shame, there are so many people out there looking for a job and probably can do a better job. Hire a private person to watch what is going on..YOU WILL BE SHOCKED!!!

    Many state complaints in past year

    02/06/2012  -  An OurParents User Writes:

    most staff (nurses) lack compassion, when patient rings buzzer for help, they are either ignored or
    if its a toilet call are simply told to do it in the diaper. what goes on here? a better screening should be made when hirig. building facility is very nice
    staff should be very nice also.

    Not a good place

    Not staffed properly

    01/21/2012  -  An OurParents User Writes:

    Broken beds not fixed and resindent left in it
    Do not repsond to reasonalbe requests for toilet, food or visitors in a tinely manner
    Told patient who called for toilet to go in her diaper instead of getting the resident to the bathroom.
    Thye cause patients to regress.
    Non-rehab patients are placed in the rehab unit
    Staff does not answer phone calls in a timely maaner
    Violate CMS regs on visitation, maintaining functional patient care equipment, and promoting/following a plan of care to promote recovery. Do not responsd to information requests in a timely manner- say they are too busy and to wait 2-3 days for basic infomation about current medication and therapy plan.
    This is not a good place.
