03/23/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Patients are ignored when they need assistance. Staff is very unfriendly. The patients are miserable being "stuck" there. Staff do not know what they are doing.


Response: I worked at this facility. Patient care is poor. Aides disappear and are not available for patient care.
Shortcuts to patient care frequent. Severely lacking in experienced, reliable care staff.
