    My mother-in-law was here for 2 weeks. During that time her bed was only changed 1 time and that only happened because I went to the nurses desk and asked for it to be done. They only offered to help her get a shower twice. Once at 8 o'clock at night (she declined at that hour) and then the rehab nurse asked her if she had been given a shower (after she had been there for 10 days without a shower) and offered to help her. They are not very responsive to patients requests. Sometimes making them wait for a half hour and longer to get a drink and even to have help to the restroom. The lady beside my mil was completely helpless and she put her light on for help to the restroom. After 20 minutes I tried to get a nurse and was told they knew her light was on but they were busy going over patients. After another 15 minutes the lady was trying to move to the restroom on her own. I again went for a nurse because I was afraid she might injure herself. There were 3 nurses behind the desk working on their computers. One of them did come help the lady to the restroom. I then left. My mil called me 20 minutes later telling me the nurses had left the lady in there and she was calling for help. She wanted my mil to call 911. My mil is on oxygen and had to have a walker so she is not able to help anyone. My mil tried to get the nurses attention to help her. They finally came back in after 20 minutes. The next day they left the same lady in a soiled bed (because again they didn't come to take her to the restroom when she needed to go) for an hour. The food they served was sub par. They don't always come ask what you would prefer for their meals and the patient is just stuck with whatever they get. There was a mess up with prescriptions getting sent to the incorrect pharmacy when my mil was discharged. In all, it was not a good experience.

  • This has been a wonderful place for my dad, who is currently 92 and in an independent apartment.

    My mom passed away there after only being there a few hours. I never did meet the doctor in charge, if there was one. The nurse on duty said she did not know my mom was so ill or much about her. How could she not know? The place should be shut down.
