06/15/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I am very impressed with the care my mother is receiving here. The staff are unfailingly kind and genuinely concerned with my mother and she is receiving excellent physical and occupational therapy. There are many nurses and helpers and somebody is always nearby to lend a helpful hand when needed. The staff seems to do everything possible to brighten the residents' days. The only negative point I notice is the food isn't delicious, not enough spices or fresh fruits or vegetables for my tastes.

06/03/2011 An OurParents User Writes: Wow...No nursing home physician is in the building 24/7, that's why there are people who go to school and work in nursing homes called nurses! I understand you love your mom/dad/aunt/uncle BUT if you want a personal care disrespect intended...keep them home and hire one. When a staff member sees a family member visiting, it should be a relief not an "oh god, what are they going to complain about today" as they run around like a chicken with their head cut off. You may see them sitting or talking to another staff and think they aren't doing anything or are just being lazy but in actuality they are breathing for a minute or discussing 1 of the other 90 residents in the building. If you've never been in the healthcare field then don't knock it until you try it and understand the rules and regulations that the state holds us to versus the demands and complaints the families beat against us. I've heard a family member say, too many times, "I don't care what the state regulations say this is what I want done" but man, when the state reviews come out who's all over them? Those same family members telling us how horrible we are and what poor care we give. My question is...why is your family member still a resident with us if we are so terrible? Seen it over and over and over. Not only at Sonterra but other nursing homes. I've worked on the North and Southside of SA and they are all the same. The only difference is how pretty the outside is. The majority of medical staff cares more than you know but are beat down by unrealistic, ungreatful, guilty-feeling family members who never see the nurse for her heart or the CNA that loves her job so much she gets up at 3:30am just so she can catch the VIA and make it to work by 6am. I am a nurse who has and only will work in nursing homes. Why? because during clinicals in nursing school the nurses at the hospitals were always so rude, unfriendly, cold, mad, frustrated, tired and basically couldn't wait for the day to be over. Just because you don't hear or see action taken immediately by staff exactly when you ask does not in any way mean there is none. Give nursing homes a break! We work here because we do care and don't want to see you stuck, tired, cold, mad, and frustrated trying to take care of your loved one on your own. Here's another bit of info...Medicaid pays an average of $120-130 per day for 1 resident: 24 hrs for an LVN? Avg: $480 we'll just say /10 residents, 24 hrs for CNA? Avg: $240 again /10 res., 16 hrs Medication aide? Avg: $240 Now that's already $96/day/resident used up paying educated and experienced staff to take care of your loved ones health needs for 24hrs/day 7 days/week. That's not including 3 meals plus snacks, plus medications, plus electric, water, phone, cable, lab services, x-ray services, adult briefs, shampoo, soap, conditioner, must I keep going? Just wait when there are NO nursing homes left in business since Medicaid wants to cut that $120 in HALF and see who's complaining because no one was at there every beck and call.....

Response: I would NEVER send a loved one to your facility, due to this report you gave.
You sound very angry and I doubt very seriously you really care about the patients.
I am an RN looking for a facility for my loved one and you ARE NOT what I am looking for.

10/24/2010 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Took my family member to another place. This place you don't get to see speak to your parent's doctor with the exception of only 1 time when they get your signature giving them permission to treat. Doctor is only on call. He is not on call when your love one needs him. 3 days may pass, you do not get contact number, Doctor won't return messages.

Response: Bet you are glad you moved your loved one ! When your loved one is sick, it's always on the weekend or after hours and so frustrating when the doctor doesn't respect families concerns !

Response: I had a different experience. I was able to have a long consultation with my mother's physician a couple hours after requesting one. She took a long time with me and patiently explain all aspects of my mother's care and medications to me. I feel less worried knowing she is receiving such great care!

11/12/2010 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I agree with posting 10/24/10. Awful when you need medical care, can't get it or this new doc they got is rude and quite frankly looks like he needs medical attention himself ! I agree.. got someone there..move them !! Glad we did !
