01/29/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: They get no star from me. So many sad patients with bedsores just laying there. They can't afford to pay $5 a day for a tv to watch or a nurse to turn them every 2 hours. Nurses claim they have no time and will tell you in your face. Heartless doctors and nurses there. I don't understand why the government doesn't do anything for the elderly in these horrific conditions and less than zero medical treatment.

05/06/2010 An OurParents User Writes: Do not care for patients, treat patients like animals. The quality of care is belo average. Nurses seems to be doing their work but higher staff members are just managing the money.

Response: I agree and no one seems to care or do anything about it.
