There will come a day that I will speak with greater candor on this site about the lack of quality care at the Newport. In short, I will say: RUN THE OTHER WAY! DO NOT place your loved one(s) there. Their greatest asset is the few caring staff members who will jump through hoops for the comfort and care of their patients. But they are incredibly understaffed, the shift/staff changes and break schedules create huge gaps at critical times for meeting patient needs. It is an abomination that they still have a license to run the place. Read the rest of the reviews posted on this site. I can't find an untruth among them. So very, very sad. In our elder care community, surely a standard can be set where all staff members are on the "floor" meeting the needs of their patients, not standing in front of the building smoking. Pitiful excuse for a "skilled nursing home."
09/08/2015 An Interested Visitor Writes: Except for the rehab department, this facility is horrible. The management is cold, uncaring, and has an excuse for everything that goes wrong, which happens daily. Nurse and aide turnover seems to be weekly. Push the nurse's call button and you will be lucky if anyone comes to help within an hour. If you do not have family there constantly, your loved one sits in dirty diapers, does not get their food cut up, no fresh water, and no daily assesments of their physical mental condition. These people simply do not care about their patients. Mgmt walks around with their noses in the air and never speak. Also, very, very few activities for the patients. Very limited menu and food is average at best. My friend had to move her mother after 3 days, my co worker had to move her husband after a week, and after six long weeks, we finally moved my dad. So dissappointed! I cannot even believe that anyone would subject our seniors to such negligent care. So sad.
