THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE!!!!! Its a shame that a place like this can actually be running. They need to be shut down. The Aides have nasty attitudes!!! Also, I notice that if you POLITELY ask them to do something for your loved one, for example, notify them that they need changing.....they roll their eyes or look at each other in a sarcastic way like you just got on their nerves. How can you report this place??? The workers are mostly Haitian and I wonder if this has to do with why the attitudes are so horrible. Not because of the race no, but I wonder what their culture is like? I went to the front desk to report water coming from one of the bathroom's floor (lobby bathroom) when you walk on it.....she said oh it's because (whatever the reason she said, I can't remember cause I was shocked that she knew about it yet there were no signs posted on the door or a caution sign put down) I told her well you may want to put something down to let people know....she asked, well is it all over the floor? I said no its not but still its wet enough that if no one is paying full attention you can walk right in and slide on the spots that are wet. She paged I assume a maintenance guy and you could here his reply "yeah yeah , I know I know......there is water on the bathroom floor" Excuse my French but what the hell kinda place is this. Stay away!! Don't bring your loved one here if you can at all help it. We are trying to get our loved one from here. I hope management sees this. I am seeking a way to report to someone over the managers there cause they act like they do not care. Only God is the caregiver at this facility and even his blessings are held up by the trashy people he has to work through to get anything done around here. SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN. We were sitting with our loved one and looked on the floor and urine was dripping from her chair. Why???? She couldn't have been changed in hours. She was soaked! Everytime we go we have to ask if she could be changed. Its ridiculous

this nursing home is tied with another facility (which I choose not to mention at this time)for being so substandard that it should be shut down. My family member broke a/an unspecified joint/bone in the body and was not even brought to a hospital within 48 hours. I was not even notified within 24 hours of this incident. They were truly negligent, truly horrendous, awful facility. Turn around and don't even give it a second thought. A rating of 1 is too high!

Response: Perfectly correct....rating of 1 is too high!!!

While the place is beautiful to look at and the staff (especially the marketing person) are friendly; things changed once Mom was in the place. Staff complained of "working short" when mom's calls were frequently unanswered and complaints only got lip service, no real changes. Found her wet more than once.
Then, they were quick to discharge her back home when her Medicare ran out, don't go there if you have Medicaid and there is a possibility your loved one might have to stay long term. They aren't interested after those big medicare dollars are finished.
