I have worked at this nursing facility for about two months and how they treat their employees that are linked in their click is different. My first couple of weeks there I watch many people get fired and most had medical problems. I heard stories of how they made people change their stories just to keep their jobs. The employees have noone to back them up no union or anything. They have cameras in the facility but goes off of word of mouth. I actually had to deal with Rosemary and Rosanne call me on the phone and both yell at me about sonething that happen and i wouldnt change my story which was the truth. One past employee had a compliacation with her preganacy and a week later fired her because she waited for a resident to tell her she needed help. She is the second person with a medical comdition to get fired over this same resident. I actually watched Rosanne question down a nurse over and over again in the middle of the hall because a an employee that was with child got hit with a door until the nurse said the story in a way that it would not look bad on the company. The poor nurse was swaeting in fear to not say anythig wrong. I even heard how a female was walking with another female and the female slipped on the floor of water and pasted. The female she was walking with said they question her until she said it was no water on the floor.This place dont care about their employees. If you have a medical problem keep it to yourself because they will find anyway to fire you and employees dont have any any any protection. I also have heard residents and employees complain about how they are treated and the food. It is a clean place

Response: are you still empoyed here and if so are you looking elsewhere?

Response: Sounds like a lawsuit to me. Since the employees in question are no longer employed there, they have no reason to fear being fired.

Response: I'm not employees at this current time. I've been living in the area over a yr. I'm seeking a position as fill in or part time CNA. Have been an aide since1991. Have experience in Alzheimer's and dementia and assisted living and nursing home environment. Can contact me at 610-745-4586, or 610-745-4587. Thank you, Janet Branan.

My great aunt had to stay at little flower following a hip fracture for short term rehab. Little flower contacted me whenever anything happened like if she fell or refused her medicine. This was annoying because what can I do if she falls? I can't make her take her medicine. But in way it was good because they always kept me informed of what was going on. Evntually she got better and they couldn't keep her because they didn't have the right kind of long term bed for her but the girl there helped me find a nice place for my great aunt. She liked the food a lot and everyone was always real nice to her. I was suspicious because I read that review but I have to say I really liked the place. If you ask around a lot of people think it's good there. And a lot of people say it's pretty hard to get 5 Medicare stars. I'm happy and my great aunt was real happy and I didn't have any problems with the staff or anything.

Response: Thank you for your honesty. Please update your comments to reflect the new nursing home that your uncle now happily resides at. I have heard not too nice stories many years ago about Little Flower Manor and to see your post validates them.

I would NOT recommend this nursing home to anyone. My 97 year old uncle was admitted and before he was even there for 24 hours we received a phone call from a hysterical person named Joe Moore, who is the nursing manger in Section B. He told us that we had to get him out of there immediately -- today in fact. Why? Because he was getting up on his own at night and he fell. He was not injured but they had to keep putting him back in his seat or bed. They knew that my uncle had dementia prior to being admitted to the home and that it would take some time for him to adjust. Call me crazy but wouldn't you think that paying $9,000 a month would include care. Well we immediately called admissions and they pacified us by telling us that they would give him the weekend to adjust. Each time we went to visit over the weekend we asked how he was doing and his nurses said that he was getting up but not leaving his room and. We found him wearing the same clothes on Sunday that he had the two days prior so we changed him ourself. In addition. for a man that was getting up at night wouldn't you expect him to be up during the day? Well on Sunday when we went he was all dressed and in bed. If you sleep all day you are not going to sleep at night. They said that he did not want to get up. It was a miracle because he got out of bed for us. Well Monday morning, 48 hours after his arrival, we were told to find a new location for him. This institution is run like a Catholic school in 1950 so think twice before you decide on admitting you family member to Little Flower. My uncle now resides in an absolutely beautiful facility, where the care is outstanding, and the price is half of what we paid at Litttle Flower. In addition, they promote having their residents walk around and enjoy the facility.

Response: what nursing home did he go to? We are thinking about putting Mother in Little Flower but now we are having second thoughts. where do you recommend?

Response: Thanks for this review. My mom has Alzheimers and Little Flower claims to have a dementia unit, but when I went to visit, they asked me if she wanders. I replied that everyone with dementia, unless they can't walk, "wanders" because they don't know where they're going. She's certainly not beating on the doors or breaking down the windows, but she does walk around without knowing where she's going. I guess I assumed that if a facility has a dementia unit, it's secured somehow, or laid out in a way that people can wander while still being on the unit. Little Flower wouldn't even let me see the unit because they "don't take anyone who wanders" on their dementia unit. SO, I also placed my mom in a residence with a lovely dementia unit that feels like a nice hotel, costs half the price, and she "wanders" the hallways, living room and dining room to her heart's content. Of course now, she has exhausted any money, needs to go onto MA and move into a nursing home. So I was thinking of looking at Little Flower again, but reading these reviews brought it all back.

Response: Little Flower Manor does not have a dementia unit and never has. So they have never taken people who wander ever except if they are not told and find out later when the person starts wandering. In this time period when people sue at the flip of a hat why would a nursing home want to take a person they are not equiped to give the proper care to.

Response: Also I want to mention I've had 12 yes experience in assisted living. My wishes are to continue in assisted living. My goal is to give the residents the best quality of life as possible. Thank you Janet Branan,my address is 11 East Berkeley Ave apt #1 Clifton heights Pa 19018
