Baptist Homes Castle Shannon Pittsburgh

I do not write negative reviews, but feel a need to do so in this case, to help prevent others from making the same mistake we did. We chose Baptist Homes (based on reviews) for our father for rehabilitation after a hospital stay and we were extremely disappointed. On the 4th day of his stay ( we had been there each day) someone called us about 1:00 pm to say our dad, since early am, was being uncooperative, not speaking, eyes tightly shut and flinging about. Despite his condition they got him up and clothed and in a wheelchair. When we arrived we immediately called 911 because it was obvious that he was DELIRIOUS (he was not conscious) and extremely ill. It concerned us greatly that this was not obvious to the medical staff on duty. Also the furniture in his shared room was in poor condition. The TV was so small it was impossible to see anything from his bed. The food was truly so awful that he could not eat it and we had to bring in food for him. It seemed there were very few professional staff around in general, other then a couple aides to bring meals. We would never recommend this facility to anyone!

Not what Mom needed, but nice for what it was

This location was more of a traditional nursing home, which was really not what we were looking for for Mom. It is an old building, but seemed to be kept up decently. Mom said she wouldn't mind being here if she did ever need skilled nursing care.
