This place is disgusting. I worked there briefly as a new nurse just to get the experience. I hated going there everyday and I cherished my days off. The administrator is very mean and uptight. She doesn't even have a nursing background but likes to put staff on the spot and embarass you instead of pulling you to the side. Very unprofessional!!! There is no computer system or organized med pass for that matter. It's like working in the 1900's. The smell is herendous and you can never get used to it especially the floor with the smoke room. It used to give me a headache just going past that room. Resident's are allowed to smoke all different tobacco products all in one room...yuck!!! Some staff members are dedicated but they work you like slaves and they don't even feed you.(which wasn't a problem to me) Only some staff members with seniority are allowed to eat from the kitchen...lots of favortism. As far as resident care CNA's are pretty proficient. The training and orientation is a joke. I would recommend that you be an experienced nurse because the employees will only teach you what to do wrong. Chatham Acres is definitely the bottom of the barrel. I feel bad for the resident's who's last home will be that place. May God be with them all!!!

my father was a resident there for a year and was suffering from cancer and his nurse was steeling his pain meds.

I know all these things because my dad lived there for a while, and the staff filled me in on things I didn't know. One CNA was reduced to tears because of how mean her supervisor was. I don't think the staff are happy working there.

The facility is ancient and in major need of repairs and updating. There have been talks about a new building for over a year but nothing yet. Most of the licensed employees provide quality care to the residents. Some of the nursing assistants don't really do a great job. Nursing administration often speaks down and belittles staff which isn't effective with team building. There are not enough activities to engage the residents. Overall, I wouldn't want to be an employee there and I would not like to have a loved one live there.

This place is a mess. The building is ancient, with electricity and indoor plumbing added later so that all of the pipes show in the rooms! The redidents' rooms have no phones. Men and women share the same bathroom, with no privacy or dignity left. The only good thing is that the staff is pleasant and helpful. I wish that Governor Corbett would tour this facility and let us know if he would like his mother lving here.

Yea that about covers it for my experience as well. The administration there seemed very uppity like the place was a mansion LOL. I got a tour and then declined an interview. I would never work in that place...never!


Response: is there really no a/c in the entire facility? i am suppose to go there on friday, 08/05/2011 @ 11 for an interview for a FT RN M-F position with varied duties. should i even go? i read your review and the one previous to yours. if this is all true, i would not be able to work in a facility like that! please reply. Thank-you!

Response: I have to admit, you are right on many counts in your review. When I first arrived to work there, I really thought about turning around and going home! But I gave it a chance. It worried me about the "brief free" issue, and yes people do have accidents, but the staff is fairly efficient in fixing it quickly. As for the A/C...there are window units in the rooms...but it is VERY hot in the building. What worries me is the age of the building and it's condition. My big concern is the smoking (they are allowed to smoke in one room, cigarettes are given out one at a time), there are certain times for smoke break and it is attended by an aide. However I o feara fire..there is no way they could everyone out. The hallways are very narrow, and wider wheelchairs do not fit through the doors. One nice thing is almost every room is private. The bathrooms leave a lot to be desired there also. But in the real realm of it all...the staff is pretty good and nice to work with. Give Chatham a chance if you are interested in a healthcare career! I understnd they are looking to build a new facility in the near future. I was a contractor there for the short term. I wish them the best!

Response: No different from any other nursing home? Really? I am an RN and worked long term care for 18 years. You should not have stench. I dont care how old the building is. If I came into your house and smelled stench, it would understandably give me a negative idea about you. The same applies to Chatham. This is nothing new. Anyone that I spoke to that worked there mentioned the stench. If you have incontinent residents, they should be wearing protective undergarments. You wouldnt let a baby toddle around without a diaper. the same should apply to incontinent seniors.

I went to Chatham Acres for a job interview. I was going to walk out the second I walked in if no one had seen me. First off is the stench odor that hits you as soon as you walk in. It was horrible! It smelled like urine had permeated the floors. I was told that the residents do not wear protective undergarments. They are toileted AS NEEDED. If that was not bad enough, it was summer and there is no AC. So, between the heat and the smell I did not know if I was going to pass out, vomit, or both. Unfortunately, I got a tour. I don't know how this place stays open! The halls are so tight, I could not walk side by side with the other person. Smoking is allowed inside by the residents, so that made it even worse. The building is old and falling apart. As I was leaving, I caught another foul odor. There was a bin full of soiled linens in the hall. I smelled so bad...I gagged! This place is horrible. It is run by sloppy, and inexperienced nurses. I could not wait to leave. Bottom line, I would not even put a dog in this place...disgusting!


Response: I'am really tired of everyone putting down this facility!!!! Chatham Acre's is no different then any other nursing home. The staff and Administation are both nice. Just because the building is old does not mean the staff does not care about the resident's

Response: These reviews are so accurate, that I am mad at myself for even walking in there. The smell......oh he'll no!!! I would NEVER put that place on my resume. Good luck with that!!

Response: It is hard for people to see past the building and generally the ones complaining here are those that were fired for poor care or not hired. These people have worked hard to provide excellent care in an aging building - they were even deficiency free for the state survey in 2010. The staff is very caring towards all the residents, the residents are very happy and administrative staff is very hands on. It's not for everyone there because you really have to work but for those who love people and want to work it's a great place.

Response: They have a no Depends policy. Men urinate in urinals, and the containers sit in their rooms. One room had no sheets on it because the woman wet her bed. They give out medications in the living room and line the residents up for toileting. The hallways are cramped and it is difficult to pass others. The elevator is ancient and is scary because it is so small. The smoking room on the top floor is also gross. The residents are discouraged from going outside because the administration thinks they will elope. The basement is always wet and flooded. Old donated clothes are mildewed down there. Overall, it is a pretty bad environment. Not to mention the administration is rather elite and somewhat hostile.

Response: i went on an interview at this place before but didnt do a tour because i wasnt certified long enough but yes it did smell and yes it did look old but i was never going to let that stop me from workig there an making money i think i will go back now that i can but can u tell me the pay for the cna positions
