According to the staff, there have been several muggings outside of this facility where family members/employees have been held up at gunpoint and robbed. They have done nothing to ensure the safety of the resident's residing inside. Anyone can walk in off the street and do whatever they want and there is nothing to stop them. Residents remain soiled for extended periods of time and the smell is horrible. I did my family member's laundry myself and the clothes I would take home would be soaked with excrement. I approached management about this issue several times however, they did not seem to care stating that the staff had many people to care for and the resident's were cared for to the best of their ability. If this is your best, then I would hate to see your worst. Many other resident's were just left in bed, I can count at least 10 people I had never seen out of bed. I have since moved my family member to another facility. If you love your family member do not send them here!

    Response: As Administrator of this facility, I felt the need to correct some things mentioned in this post. Sometimes when stories get passed along they become sensationalized and I would hate for family members of current residents to needlessly fear for their loved one’s safety. On two separate occasions on the public sidewalk outside of our facility a visitor’s purse was snatched. Neither of these incidents involved a firearm. We have security lighting and cameras surrounding our building and were able to capture one of the incidents on tape. We supplied this footage to the local authorities. We also requested additional police patrol during the time frames surrounding these events. We were informed by the police that they had a suspect in custody and there have been no incidents since then. While the facility is open to visitors throughout the day, all entrances to the facility are locked after 8:00 PM in the evening. In more than five years I have worked in the facility we have never had an incident where a resident was attacked or harmed.
    The other issues are more difficult to address without specifics however it is not our policy to leave residents in soiled clothing for extended periods of time. We do have a handful of residents whose medical condition does not allow them to be out of bed for great lengths of time but our residents are up and dressed on a daily basis if medically able to do so.
    I am sorry to hear that your experience with our facility did not meet your expectations and that we cannot count you among the many satisfied residents and family members who we have served over the years. I can say with confidence that we have many dedicated caregivers who work very hard and who share our desire to provide the best care to the residents who are entrusted to us. I am always available to hear the concerns of any current or former family member or resident and would use the feedback constructively to continue to improve the quality of life for our residents.

    Most of the staff are caring loving individuals. However, a few who are in charge are severely lacking in compassion and respect even for family members of the residents. Those who do a wonderful job surely could use more help like them. Get rid of those who are rude. I'm sure there are Nurses who would do a better job for the residents. Working there is not easy and it takes a special person.

    This facility is severly understaffed, they argue with the patients, they only change the patients wet/soiled garments 1 time a day as I have witnessed several times and we are there everyday with my mother in law. There is no cooperation with the staff, everything is an arguement or a hassle.
