    My aunt did her therapy here while recovering from knee surgery. She enjoyed a very clean room and beautiful surroundings. However, there was a concern with the facility wanting her to stay longer than she really needed to. She thought tha the social worke was pulling for the facility to be paid her benefits, even though the physician said it was fine to go home. That experience made her very suspicious and leary.

    The nursing staff is great, but the owner(Harold( and his subordinate (Tia Anspach) are absolutley terrible. Tia is discriminatory in who she allows in her building. She will only want you for as many days as you have medicare/medicaid benefits. Dress nice? Have money? Designer purse? Then you are a ok by her. Her surrounding staff FREEZES COLD when you ask them how they are treated. There is no employee retention. When touring this building, ask how many administrators they have been through in 24 months. None of them stay. Zero retention. RUN far far away from this building.

    Response: This website is for families to review the facility and the care given. Forest Hills is rated a four star facility by Medicare and received a Perfect State Survey April 4. We are proud of the facility and the care we provide and have high expectations of the care and customer service our staff provides. Whoever wrote this review did not leave their name or I would be more than happy to discuss their issues. Please feel free to call the facility if you have any questions what so ever or stop for a tour any time and speak to any of the employees. I however think this review came from an unhappy terminated employee.

    beautiful, newer building, but below average competency from management.

    Response: My mother is currently at Forest Hills. She is 88 and was at first disorientated. They have worked wonders.
    She is getting better because of them.

    My father was here in the last stages of hospice. We often found him unshaven, unclean and not feed. My sister and I would take it upon ourselves to make sure Dad ate. We filed complaints with the director of nursing, but they fell on his deaf ears because everytime we visited we had the same issues. Would not recommend for long term care of a loved one. If I could give them fewer than one star- I would!

    Response: I'm confused. If he was dying I'm sure he doesn't want to be shaved and in this stage they don't eat you should know that. And usually hospice takes care of these issues as that is there job and that is what they are trained to do. So I see that hospice was a bigger role in this.And if it was such bad care I would have moved him to another facility.

    Response: Actually, hospice is consulted to direct the care of a patient, but staff should be taking care of patient as usual.

    After hip sirgery my mom was referred to this home by the Mercy hospital doctor. Beautiful nursing home but only has average care and below average follow through. When my mom came home they sent their affiliated home care Home Care Partners whom didn't send a therapist for 5 days and my mom was readmitted to Mercy with a reinjured hip. My mom is now in another home that is caring for her needs and I will not be reusing Forest Hills Care Center or their affiliaes ever again.

    Our father received excellent care at Forest Hills Care. The staff was very kind and supportive during his rehab stay. We would choose this facility again.

    Medical Records Coordinator Cincinnati, OH – August 16, 2012
    Pros: willing to accept entry level, good starting experience
    Cons: no employee retention, no job security, no advancement, no employee appreciation, extremely large workloads, below average pay, high employee turnover, harrassment and discrimination from management and owner

    It is not unusual for the owner of the company and his immediate subordinate to humiliate and insult the majority of the employees within the building. Employees have no job security, and two previous employees have successfully won law suits for wrongful firing. Many employees carry the burden of two or more full time positions, while those we've come to call the "spies" carry little or no burden at all. Employees are told to "stay in their lane" and input, suggestions, and initiative is NOT appreciated. Employee turnover is extremely high, and employee satisfaction is extremely low. Every employee is given one non-paid half an hour lunch, and certain staff receive two paid ten minute breaks. It is a very stressful place to work, with a constant in-and-out patient environment due to its skilled nursing portion. Because every decision is left to the owner of the company, the handbook is vague and values are not upheld or even encouraged. Advancement is difficult; new and overloading duties are often forced on employees, while requested or necessary duties are taken away. Many employees feel they are unable to manage the workload, and most employees make less than entry level, regardless of experience level.

    Management continually failed to take care of issues that would arise. Upper management would promise one thing yet never deliver. Did what they had to do to get us in the door.

    Response: Forest Hills Care Center has an excellent reputation and is typically full. The facility has never and doesn't have to try and get anyone through the door. We would be more than happy to speak with anyone or have them tour the building at any time. Any issues that are brought up are handled immediately.

    My father was well taken of while rehab on his hips was needed. I cant express how excellent the facility and staff are. While here i personally experienced a highly qualified group of caring people and would highly recommend this facility over any other in the area. Top notch in every sense of the word.
