My mother is in this facility only for a 10 day rehab however she now has been there 30 days. I am appalled that she has been left to lay in her own feces and urine because the staff will not answer her call for help. We have had meetings with administration who assured these issues would be addressed. They may have been addressed however they have note been rectified. We are now asking for another meeting to address these issues and no one will return our calls to set up a meeting. They are not aggressively working with my mother to rehab her to get her out of the facility. I believe that they are intentionally lax in their care in order to max the Medicare benefit since they are a "for profit" facility. It has been brought to my attention by staff members that they do not have surprise inspections from the government. They receive notification prior to the visit so they have time to make things look good enough to pass the inspection.
