This was the most amazing facility that I have ever seen. All the staff was so kind and attentive to my Sister, Sarah Schenck, as well as to her family. We will be ever grateful for the excellent care that she received. Your hospitality with our needs was awesome. Thank you and God Bless you. Wish we could clone you and bring you South.

Having done an exhaustive research for skilled nursing in Erie and the surrounding area that involved personally touring 5 facilities in 2011, St Mary's is one of 2 we would consider of the 5 facilities; the limiting factor for our elders is that the facility be Catholic, so that restricted our choices. Here's what we've found so far:
Staff: Caring from elders is truly a labor of love, especially when means are limited. Staff here are well meaning, caring, but definitely over-taxed in their responsibilities. While the nursing care is excellent, "non-essential" services require repeated prompting. Lost clothing, personal efffects, preferences in grooming, food, clothing ~ and there's a trick to getting a regularly scheduled hair-cut for your loved one that we've yet to figure out. All minor concerns, perhaps, when one considers the alternative....except that we are paying a premium rate and definitely not getting a premium service.
Ongoing Communication - is definitely a challenge for this organization, which is puzzling because they are in the business of long-term patient care. Requests are accepted readily, but response time is poor and forget about a coordinated response.
Attitude/Treatment of caregivers: When you're a customer paying for a service, you expect a reasonable level of customer service. Not to be told in an impatient tone that your questions are taking up too much time, should go to another person or area, etc etc. - the chastising attitude is that we, the paying customer are "supposed" to know the innner working of their business and not waste their time by asking questions of the wrong person, department. Other manager care facilities have a monthly caregivers meeting acquainting families with the various departments, their functions, ect. Of course, calling multiple people to get answers is a waste of our time, but we've definitely learned that, at St. Mary's, our time is theirs to waste.
Quarterly Care Plan Review - Don't make the mistake we did and give St. Mary's the benefit of the doubt by waiting the full three months after admission to bring your concerns to the table. You're allotted barely 15 minutes in this state-mandated careplan review. Don't make the mistake of thinking that two-way communication is going to happen here -these reviews are simply so they can meet the state requirements for disclosure - it's a rushed, brief monologue and they definitely don't entertain more than a question or two. They are impatient if you take any more than your allotted 15 minutes, while having absolutely zero respect for their paying customer's time. We've been kept waiting as much as 1/2 hour or more on a mid-day appointment - of course during the work week. They're late and then impatient with us because we're taking up too much time - ya think they'd figure out that first time appointments should go a little longer?
Communication formats - For all you caregivers trying to fulfill your responsibilities from afar, take note: despite the fact that the rest of the world is firmly in the current century, this organization is firmly rooted in the 1950's. Don't expect your docs in electronic format or to be able to utilize all the modern conveniences of e-mail, text and other media commonly employed in doing business. The staff give you the rigamorole about patient confidentiality, and if you press as we did, and offer to sign any waivers they need, the real truth emerges - they don't know how to make a PDF, nor do they have PDF printer drivers installed on the compauters. But there's no problem with patient confifentiality and using the fax apparently...If you persevere and are insistent, you'll eventually get them to set up a secure portal. But good luck - in the beginning when we were fronting all costs before insurance kicked in, (and needed a quick turn around so we did not have to liquidate asets) we had to purchase and install a fax so that we could get billing and documents to and from the insurance companies and St. Mary's timley.
