04/03/2013  -  An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes:

My first impression came 5 days after my dad was transferred here from the hospital after suffering from a massive stroke in 2010. I work full time, so I can only visit him on the weekends. When I arrived on the Sunday after his transfer, he was still in the gown that he wore in the hospital, he hadn't been changed in 5 days. Plus, he obviously hadn't been showered in that time either. I had convinced my mom that he would be in good hands so that she would leave his side and go home to rest. When my mother and I confronted the nursing staff, they were full of excuses such as he wasn't on the schedule yet, there were water problems one day, Then it wasn't his scheduled day. He was taken to the shower within the next hour. When the nurses button was pushed, there was a LONG wait before anyone responded. Some members of the staff were exceptional, however we found they had been terminated shortly before my dad had been sent home. The therapists were pretty good, except for the speech therapist that neither of my parents liked. She tried to get my dad to say words with several syllables, when he'd barely begun getting anything out clearly. We had to almost argue with her to get her to test his ability to eat regular food. Luckily, he was only here for a short period of time. My poor mom has had trouble leaving him anywhere since. We just can't trust that he will be taken care of. My advice is that if you are concerned about your loved one, do not leave them here.

While visiting the hospital, I witnessed 2 nurses at the nurses station blatantly ignore an alarm from a patient's call button. The call went unanswered for 5 minutes. I left before I could see if they actually responded to it.
've been told by a friend that works there that this happens ALL THE TIME.

I would hate to have a loved one subjected to this awful place.
