Horrible facility. I'm a nurse. My brother was unfortunate enough to land at Briarcliff. They would have killed him if I hadn't gotten him out of there. It's their management. The nursing director is a joke. I never told them I'm a nurse bc we wanted to see just how they treat 'laymen'. The floor staff and med nurse's were kind to my brother and family. But the charge "nurse" and nursing director are dangerously
incompetent and unprofessional. Very condescending to my brother (an engineer) about his medication and My guess is they couldn't cut it in a hospital so they work at a snf where nobody notice.

This is the WORST place ever. I wish someone would send in a private investigator to see how the patients at Briarcliff are really treated. This facility is VERY dirty & the staff is EXTREMLEY lazy. The staff at Briarcliff DO NOT take care of the patients.

DO NOT let your loved ones go too this place. The staff at Briarcliff in Oak Ridge is VERY BAD!!!! They Do Not take care of the patients. The facility is VERY DIRTY!!! I watched a staff member empty a BEDPAN without gloves on & then feed a patient lunch without even washing their hands. The staff also does not give the patients their medications like they are supposed too, It's like they are keeping it for themselves. If you care at all about your loved ones DO NOT put them in Briarcliff. THIS PLACE SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN!!!!!

Resident was given pillow that roommate had already used. After resident was sedated family member found him walking alone with no shoes or socks and walking on pant legs. There were bits of food stuck to the soles of his bare feet. Family member also noticed a big yellow circle of dried urine on back of shirt.
