I do not recommend this facility. They are understaffed and care is below standard. My family member was not cared for during his stay. He had a catheter in for over a week which had blood in it. He was in pain due to it not being placed properly. When asked why he was on a catheter no reasonable explanation was given. I had to put several messages to the doctor to get that catheter removed before infection set in. Also he was left in his wheelchair for hours. The room was not mopped, sanitary or cleaned. Upon one visit after removal of catheter a urinal bottle was on the table with his food. When drawing blood it was spilled on floor and it was there for weeks. Dirty sheets piled up the wall from changing the bed. Medicine was administered whenever time permitted. He knows his medication schedule and they didn't stick to it. Certain medicines need to taken with food and they would bring it hours after the meal. Look elsewhere for your loved have options and this is not a good one.

My Ex husband was in St Catherines 12 days when we moved him. He fell out of the bed 3 times. Out of the wheelchair the first day he was there but was caught before he hit the ground. He was put in a wheelchair that was too small for a Doctors appt. and fell out of it 2 times at the doctors office. When he told a family member that was visiting he needed to use the bathroom, he was unable to go to the commode by him self and she told them at the nurses station that he needed a bed pan the told her that they just let him go on himself and the just clean him up. Today as he was being ready to move he had a can of Nepro which is a protein drink for diabetics like boost family member noticed it was out of date. They had oxygen on him and the RN didn't even know it. No would not recommend this place at all.

I have been trying to review on the facilities of this center to help other patients and family members make a better decisions for the care of their loved one. I would not recommend this facility at all. Recently my grandmother was admitted to saint catherines after suffering a stroke. It is part of the providence park health services. The on-sight occupational, physical, and speech therapists are amazing and without them this center would be nothing. The therapy rooms are probably the cleanest places in the building too. The nursing staff however is overworked, understaffed, and most times on edge. Over half of the nurses are overweight/obese. In a facility that should be focusing on health and wellness having unhealthy nursing staff is just the tip of the iceberg. Dont let the common room pictures and furnishings fool you either. The center has worn out and ragged furniture. My grandfather who has been staying with my grandmother during the night on a pull out has been sleeping on a mattress with exposed springs, stuffing coming out, and a frame worn through and repaired with what looks to be clothes hangers. When I asked to get this changed for a new one the nurse on staff acted like this was typical and was easily agitated and defensive. She even exasperated an already touchy situation, when my grandfather not wanting to put anyone out tried to concede that it was fine for him to sleep on a mattress like that. Anyone, could see it is a health and safety hazard and needs to be removed. If the guests are sleeping on mattresses not fit for dogs, I cant imagine what the patients are sleeping on. It has been 3 days and counting (after my grandfather has already been sleeping on this disgrace of a bed for two weeks) and we still have not received an adequate replacement. When I went online to look at some reviews of the center I found that even the Texas Health and Human Services rating was a 1 out of 5 stars. On top of that the nursing staff due to under staffing has no real schedule to getting my grandmother clean and washed. And we often have to wait for help to go to the bathroom. Food at the center is also terrible. The website says it offers nutritious meals, but it does not. It offers low grade meats, often canned vegetables, and starchy potatoes all high in sodium and lacking nutrition. The only, and I mean only saving grace of the facility is the therapists and the very few handfuls of good, healthy kind nurses. If it weren't for them this place would be little more than a cheap dingy motel and even less than that. A cheap motel would have at least changed the mattress by now.

Response: If only those overweight nurses could be as perfect as you

My mother was in after having hip surgery.She was given a drug which had just been proven at the hospital to have negative effects. Urine was spilled on her and the amount of available staff was piteous. At this point, no one in my family and several friends would not recommend St. Catherines.
