I worked here for over one year as an RN. Ms. Elizabeth Wolf gave me a $2.50 dollar raise to stay. I choose not to because I was in fear of losing my license. As a nurse, one can not complete the w ork load that is expected. The residents were always short changed. The management is sad, they gossip about staff to the DCT especially Ms. Love, she shares personal information from the office to the DCT's. She would often gossip about the ADON Susan Warner saying she was an alcoholic and should call her before she gets to drunk to give her report about the facility. The DCT spend most of their time on their phones playing games instead of assisting the resident's. The residents who are not alert are the ones who suffer. The resident's have a lot of urinary tract infections and their tongues show signs of dehydration. In this facility the DCT's have the upper hand over the nurse. I think the State Of Michigan needs to contact every employee that has left and ask them why they left. One nurse an LPN was suspended for not passing her pills and is still there.
I'm only giving this high of a rating because my grandmother looked well cared for the day we visited. Only one staff member in the dementia care unit asked us which resident we were looking for. The rest of the staff was cold as ice. My family and I did not feel welcome by any means. The young gentleman at the front desk was very kind when we asked him about getting a code to get into the dementia area. I have a nursing background so I can sympathize from experience that these men and women are doing one of the toughest jobs around. Add to that being overworked, underpaid, understaffed and low morale. Neither of which is ever an excuse for treating someone with disrespect.
