I have never witness such irresponsible behavior from professional nursing personnel as I have seen from the staff at Summit Trace. I was shocked to see that a patient who has lost their independence was simply put in a diaper and placed in a bed or chair unattended for the day.
I have spent every evening for the past 30 days at Summit Trace's Continuous Care unit acting as the advocate for my father's health care and attending to his basic needs (feeding, bathroom and/or diaper changes, and getting him into bed at night).
On a recent visit, I used the emergency call button in my father's room to get assistance. It took 27 minutes before anyone responded even though it was the only time we ever summoned for an emergency. Due to the nature of my father's problem and the physical position that he was in, I wasn't able to leave him unattended. I did what I could to keep him comfortable and took pictures of the clock with my cell phone. In this situation as in every other issue that were brought to the staff's attention, we only received a "passing of the buck" and finger pointing regarding responsibility.
We transferred our father to Summit Trace's Continuous Care unit in early March, 2013 following a 2-day hospital stay for pneumonia. His residency prior to his hospitalization was in Summit Trace's Assistant Living facilities. Dad has dementia and with the families, assistance was able to live interdependently until he was hospitalized. At the rate of care he is receiving, I do not believe we will get to see him back on his feet again.

This nursing home doesn't communicate well. It is very difficult to contact anyone and have your call returned. I believe they are short staffed. Generally, the nurses and aides are snappy, rude and disrespectful to residents. Residents are not even allowed to have family pictures, calendars, etc. on their room walls. Unless you are within 5 minutes of this place so that you can help your loved one be cared for, don't go here.
