The only reason I will give a three star rating is because of the quality of care and concern that the CNA gave to my brother during his brief stay as he was dying of cancer. The day shift nurse,Farah, was very unprofessional and completely UNCOMPASSIONATE! Cleanliness is also sub par. His room was not cleaned one time during his stay and I didn't want to touch the faucets in the bathroom as they had mineral build up on them like they hadn't been cleaned in sometime. I would like to thank the outstanding care given by the CNA, Jennifer and Julie! And to the hospice nurse that visited.
