My Uncle was placed here from the Hospital on Saturday, 9/24/2016. He has a type of cancer that has left him with a gaping wound and exposed bone over most of his left forearm and another over 1/4 of his head. These wounds require powdered antibiotics daily and the dressing on his forearm requires changing daily. As of yesterday evening, 9/27/2016, the bandage had not been changed during his entire stay and no antibiotics applied. He has had this blood and infection soaked bandage on since Saturday morning. He is so weak that he can barely get out of bed and certainly cannot take a shower and he cannot have water beating down onto these open wounds. They tried to make him take a shower on Monday but since he could not, they just have not bathed him. He has not been bathed since Friday, 9/23/2016 at the hospital. I reminded who I thought were two nurses on Sunday night (it turns out that one of the women was actually the Nursing Home Administrator) to change the bandage and it was not done. I reminded a nurse on Monday night to change the bandage and it was not done. I reminded the same nurse on Tuesday night to change the bandage and confronted her about why it had not yet been done and was given the excuse that it was not on "her list of things to do" and therefore not her responsibility. My concern is that if The Brian Center can neglect such basic and medically necessary needs even when they have a family member prodding and reminding them, what are they neglecting with these patients that is not so obvious and who do not have a loved one in there each day to check behind them? We will be moving my Uncle as soon as I have made arrangements for in home care and my advice for anyone looking at this place for a loved one is to keep looking.
