The dining hall floor was messy when I visited my uncle.
He had to wait 25 minutes to be served lunch. Everyone
else was eating and he became upset for the long wait. The
dietary aides were just standing there talking against the wall. I went to the serving line and ask for his lunch and the aide said we will bring it out. It still took 8 more minutes. He has been there for a year now and he said to me I always
eat last. Everyone at his table was finished before he ate.
I wanted to tell the manager but she was not there. I went
back a week later and he ate last again. I went to talk to the manager and asked why and she replied we will work
on that. My uncle's diet is the same as the people at his
table so what is there problem. This should not be happening as my Uncle thinks this is not fair. Everyone
should be treated the same with respect.

    My grandmother 91 yrs old was taken from Hugh Chatham Hospital to Hugh Chatham Nursing Center after having a UT infection and a pacemaker, she was admitted around 6:00pm. Problem #1-The staff did not bother reading the hospital reports, evidently. The staff brought her a pitcher of ice, no water, no cup. (At the hospital she had been on Forced Fluids) She was given a bag of supplies lotion, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste,etc. I made sure she had water that day, because they did not bother , YOU HAD TO ASK.
    From the hospital she had her warning bracelets still on 1-Red for allergic reactions, 1-Yellow for Fall Risk, 1-Green & 1-Purple. My grandmother had to use the restroom, I pushed the call light button and proceeded to get her ready for the CNA's to assist. Forget that , I did it myself. When a CNA did show up I explained she needed assistance getting to the restroom, she advise me that's why she had a pull up on. Now, keep in mind she was there for rehabilitation to regain strength to walk with the assistance of a walker. Prior to being admitted to the hospital she did this at home, with little assistance even though she is 91 yrs. old and she is still in very good mind.
    Around 8:00pm I walked her roommates daughter out to continue a conversation about the services there and we where talking about "habits" each one of our loved ones have (after all they where going to be roommates for a while) she was telling me her mother gets upset when she leaves and the CNA's where good about sitting with her and calming her down. (How wonderful I thought) I returned to find 2-CNA's in the room one who looked upset with me, I turned and saw my grandmother sitting on the toilet by herself and both of them talking to her room mate, the CNA the hatefully said to me " SHE, (did not know her name or just disrespectful) got up and was going to the bathroom by herself and she needs help , she could have fallen!" "If she does this again we will HAVE to put an alarm on her bed." I ask , "Did you not know she was a fall risk?" Both replied at the same time , no they did not. I ask why had no one checked her arms bands upon admission and stated I thought the alarm would be great, to do it right away. From there everything went down hill. Later that night , she needed to go again.
    I hit her call light, proceeded to go get the wheelchair out of the bathroom. They had moved the roommates bed some and it block the bathroom door. I again hit the call light. Upon the urgency of my G-mother , I moved the heavy , locked bed myself, was able to help her in the w/c and get her to the toilet. I prepared the toilet paper to clean her with, pulled the call chain in the bathroom and waited. I was assisting her up when the cna came to the door and ask if I needed help. I told her to help me get her cleaned up and back in bed. The CNA stood in front of her and told her to "Hug" her so she could hold her up while I cleaned her

    Response: First of all this report is not accurate, this facility is NOT located in the hospital, it is across the road and no you could not walk to it from the hospital either, its not that close. So, once I read the location was incorrect on this report. I did not bother reading the rest. I mean really, if u can not get the location right how can one trust the rest.
