  • Glad to be Gone!

    Thank God I moved my husband to another facility this past Jan., before the Covid-19 escalation. My Husband spent four years at Carriage Court; 1/12 years in assisted living, and 2/12 years in Legacy Court, the lock down memory care unit. Initially facility ( asst living) was excellent, but by the time my husband was sent to Legacy Court, things were going rapidly down hill.The staff was transitory and lean; Legacy Court was dark, cramped and depressing. Staff knowledge and ability to recognize medical red flags, was woefully deficient.Whenever I raised a concern, even with a Nurse, the problem was always" caused by progression of his illness." I am a Medical professional, and caught serious issues that required the doctor's oversight, and sometimes sent my husband to the ER on more than one occasion. No Director of Nursing here for well over a year; books not up to date.I was called many times to rush over and sign documents which were retro-dated. Weigh scale broken, and l had to become very vocal before it was finally repaired. They had been estimating my husband's weight. Protocols were lax or nonexistent. Water was not placed consistently at resident's dining table. After my husband dehydrated,and was placed in hospice after a week in the hospital, this was corrected, but residents were not consistently urged or monitored in their fluid consumption.No water was offered outside of mealtime on a consistent basis. I started a sign-in protocol for Legacy Court after my husband was apparently sexually assaulted in his room by someone from outside the facility. Most of the time you had to look for the sign-in book. Sheets were not dated, and there was no pen. Very lax!!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband was taken out of hospice the end of Oct.(20/19 ) and for the previous 6 mos, had not gotten dehydrated,(good oversight by hospice ) but early Dec. of last year,he was back in the ER dehydrated, and dehydrated two more times in Dec.,taken to the ER; the last time spent two weeks in the hospital.I would tell staff he was dehydrated, and urge them to monitor and give him water on a regular basis. I found him in the dining room one day in Dec., trying to feed himself,, and food was everywhere, because of the muscle spasms he was having from being dehydrated. The staff seemed oblivious to the situation. He ended up in the hospital that night. Dehydrated 3 times in Dec, all requiring hospital stays. I became aware of this facility's inspection deficiencies in Dec.20/19, on Tn.Gov. and found out Carriage Court had come close to being shut down last year. They have been on probation since June of 2019, and still remain on probation, after paying several large fines. My mother and uncle were in assisted living at a better time for this facility. There are currently better facilities to place your loved ones. I have seen some wonderful ones! I feel very guilty that I did not move my husband before I did. Legacy Court is a depressing area, and needs to be overhauled; bad apples on staff, better space ,better lighting in rooms and common areas, and better decor. I always felt down and weepy after being there.The residents deserve much better!!!! All of these facilities need to be regularly monitored for quality which is directly affected by adequate staff, their credentials and qualifications, promptness in addressing medical issues, and how often the place changes ownership.
