This place can not keep a Director. Look on the 5Star website and look at how many positions are always available. Everything is pretty good except the food is terrible. Possibly because they do not have anyone over the kitchen as well...

    The facilities are filthy. The carpets are stained, the exterior and interior need a fresh coat of paint desperately. The furniture is dirty and appears to have had a rough life, as the wooden night stands are missing chunks of wood. The bed limits appear dirty, as well as, the living quarters in general. There was a stain on the remote from the prior resident. The wood below the window is rotten and separating from the wall.
    You feel as though you will catch a serious disease if you sit down or touch anything.

    A family member stayed here and their health severely declined 3 days after admission when we pulled him out and found other arrangements. He fell out of his bed 2 nights and the second time resulted in the ER with a cracked skull and back into the hospital. The Nursing staff was rude and even combative. He only stayed there 3 nights total before making other arrangements. I recommend looking for other options before letting a loved one stay here.

    Brighton Gardens of Bellaire was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. There were so many issues during my mother-in-laws stay which resulted in her being transported by ambulance back to the hospital to the ICU unit.
    Over the course of her stay, her mental acuity went from 'normal' - coherent, lucid, oriented to date, time and place, to the complete opposite, suffering from in-hospital delirium. This was not addressed until it became a problem for the staff, to which their response was to have a psych evaluation without family input and started to medicate her with various psych drugs.
    She was in a diaper and had a foley during her entire stay. She would only be changed if it was requested during the night shift. One instance when it was requested that she be changed, her gown and sheets had fecal matter on them, the aide only changed her diaper and left her in her soiled gown and sheets. The staff never attempted to remove the foley or to work on bladder training. My belief for this is that it is easier and less frequent need to change her for only bowel movements than for urine two or three times a day.
    She was transported to the hospital on a prior occasion during her stay and was found to be severely dehydrated and had a UTI.
    On her last day at BG, we walked in to find her totally unresponsive and with a frightening low BP. Even though she was totally unconscious, the staff was trying to put food and drink in her mouth! They had given her an anti-psychotic medication with an increased dose. She did not even respond to painful stimuli. She was so dehydrated, it was difficult to start an IV.
    After being admitted to the ICU, we went to retrieve her items from her room (some items had gone missing during her stay, 2 night gowns and a plant) and only the administrative staff bothered to ask how she was and did not seem surprised that we would not bring her back.
    All in all, it may be just fine as a retirement home, but as a SNF, the skills are lacking, as are the compassion needed for that environment.

    I was EXTREMELY unhappy with the care my father received. When he checked into the skilled nursing facility, after surgery at a local hospital. He was in reasonable shape, able to ambulate without assistance. After a week, he had lost 7 pounds, developed 2 pressure ulcers, had edema in both legs (I was told "it will go away"), he could no longer walk nor eat without assistance. The staff would respond with appropriate answers and they were very cordial, but their actions did not correspond to those answers. His complaints of pain were ignored by staff and he did not receive any additional treatment, other than medications that had been prescribed by his doctor while in a hospital. Realizing he was dying due to what seemed to be lack of care, I took him back to the hospital ER, where he was admitted and spent almost a month there. Then I moved him to another skilled nursing facility, which provided much better care. He is home now, living alone and doing extremely well. It is my strong opinion that he would have died at Brighton Gardens had I not taken him to an ER.


    Response: What other skilled nursing center did you take him to that provided better care that resulted in him being able to move back home?

    Response: I am stunned. I spent hours yesterday reading all of the state reports and the medicare reports and decided this was the best place within 30 minutes from home. Now I am stunned to read your review. I have no idea where to start now. He is at Triumph acute care center and I am so disappointed in that place that I thought this looked great. Please share where you went to that you liked. Please!

    Response: I had the same experience as you did. My mother suffered a stroke and was discharged from the hospital to Brighton for care. The staff would always give pat answers as to problems that surfaced. We had to ask that her teeth be brushed daily and that she be put in clothes rather than gowns that they seemed to want to keep her in. She was kept doped up and did not follow up with the hospital/doctors about changing medications. I was told by her roommate that some nights she was not even put into bed; she was allowed to stay in a wheelchair most of the night. She was rushed to the hospital due to severe dehydration after being there a month and the hospital later found three bacterial infections due to catheters being used; one of the bacteria was not immediately identifiable. Even with my family staying on the staff, this happened.

    I feel that my son could not have picked a better facility for me. I think you have some very wonderful workers who have attended to me since I've been here are very caring and Godly persons...to name a few Lerlene, Monae, Cynthia, the main nurse Jennifer and Rose and Paience.(I am sure I have left some out but it is not intentional.) The cafeteria staff is also nice and the cooks are superb. The presentation of food is fantastic. It not only looks good but tastes good, also the persons at the recptionist desk are always ready to help, regardless of the nature of the call. In other words, my stay has been very plesant because of all of the above. I could not ask for more, My Doctor and his nurse practician, Jeannette, are very helpful. Jeanette takes her time with me and makes sure that I understand what is happening, My boys and their families are very pleased. I also enjoy my roommate and her family.
