Response: My mother was placed here. My initial thought was one of relief, thinking she would be in good hands. My last thought was I could not believe that due to our countries screwed up medicare/aid system, this place was given $7500 a month for her care. I rarely saw an aid or nurse attend my mother. Because my mother no longer functioned, there was no need aparently for a nurse to see her or a Dr., as we saw none even on the day she passed away. I guess I expected quite a bit more. Our president needs to make some changes that allow that money to go to in home care, as we would have rather that $7500 go to a nurse or aid to have come into our home and cared for her, as they certainly could have done the same for her there at home, as she did inside the facility as she received no special treatments or required any special medical equipment. I was very disapointed in the place and the way the staff treated my family. Every question was an inconvience and the staff cause quite distention in the family because there were so many conflicting answers to questions.

Response: I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. My Father also passed away in THAT PLACE. The people who work in there are more worried about gossip and what is going on in their own privarte lives than the care of patients. They should leave their personal business at the door when they come to work. The nursing staff was also very rude and it seemed like I was always bothering them when I asked a question. There was one clerk who always went out of her way to see if she could help. As for the rest of them....
I would never ever put anyone in that hell hole..
