02/22/2013 An OurParents User Writes: If you are looking for a place for your loved one, don't go to Douglas Care Center. Their motto is, Each rresident deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. Thst csn't be further from the truth. Those who dare to speak up about their care are intentionally provoked. They are ignored. Their care is shawdy to say the least. Even if you have to drive a few miles to see your loved one, that would be better than placing them in Douglas Care Center.

12/12/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: We found that communication was the worst problem at the facility. Administration, nursing staff and CNA's were often following past orders and not communicating patient's status or care changes. The staff is underpaid, worked long hours, and not treated with respect by superiors. Supplies are often missing and doctor's prescriptions not filled in a timely manner. While the patients were treated with respect by nurses and CNA's, the lack of staff members sometimes meant long waits for needed care. It seemed to take a long time to serve meals to all patients, though individualized needs were honored. The organization of the facility needs review, and the staff needs to feel valued and respected.
