  • Place is a Total Joke - Horrible Experience

    Terrible services - patients are ignored and are over charged for things like bed pads that are never used. Patient therapy was a joke - total joke. A group of patients are taken to a large room (many in wheel chairs) and then someone stands up and does their physical therapy instruction. Can never find a nurse on duty - this happened to our relative and the patient in the other bed. We pulled our loved one from the facility.
