If I could give this nursing home zero stars, I would. This is the WORST care facility I have seen in my life and the establishment should be shut down. We recently removed my grandfather from this facility due to the lack of care.
Where to begin... the "so called nurses" pay no attention to their patients. Instead, they give them sedatives to make them sleep all day so they do not have to be bothered with them. There was no reason for my grandfather to be subscribed sedatives, which in turn was making him turn into a vegetable and be incoherent every time we visited him. Also, when walking down the hallway, I heard several patients say "Get me out of here." What does that tell you?
The nurses are ignorant. I witnessed one of the male nurses wheeling a bed down the hallway and while wheeling it he banged the bed off of the patients that were congregating around the nurses desk. Instead of another nurse moving them aside so they would not get bumped, they just stared and did nothing. I took it upon myself to move the patients out of the way.
The odor ... I have NEVER smelt a more sickening and disgusting place. I wouldn't even put my worst enemy here. The reason for the foul smell is because they allow their patients to lie in bed in their own urine, not take them to the restroom, not tend to them when needed, not clean up the mess in an appropriate manner.
If the patients weren't sick before they checked in, they are sure to get sick here. One day two of the nurses were sick. Instead of covering their faces with a mask to prevent anyone else from getting ill, they were coughing, blowing their noses religiously in the rooms and at the nurses desk. Very inconsiderate staff. If you ask for help, for more water for your family member who is staying there, etc. it seems as a bother to them. It is the "nurses" job to take care of these people, instead they are killing them.
As for the physically therapy dept., my grandpa was checked in here a couple of months ago. Before he was checked in, he was able to walk but was somewhat losing his strength. In order for him to regain his strength, he was advised to go to therapy. Well, come to find out, the nursing home has refused to take him to therapy for the past month. My grandpa now has no ability in his legs.
If you have family members in this facility, get them out! Word of mouth is the biggest form of communication and I will be spreading the word about this establishment. My best advise is to shut this place down!
They have a great physical therapy department. They used to be helpful but not as much of late. It is one of the best nursing homes in the area. They don't have a large population of people who sti ll have their minds about them. It is mostly a dementia/Alzheimer population...and they don't make enough amends for the normal population. Also, they tend to rotate dying patients with the person which leaves that person depressed. They also love to hand out anti-depressants. You really need to stay on top of what they are prescribing and why. I do not like their Rx program. They lose things and try to blame the patient for everything. They don't know their own insurance programs for replacement. I had to do my own research so that I could educate them. They don't like to be educated and will then black list you so that they don't have deal with you no matter how polite you are.
