  • PRICE GOUGERS OUT TO NICKEL AND DIME

    Beware: this facility is a money oriented rather than people oriented facility. We now pay almost nursing home rates !!!!! I am missing the former Executive Director who took the time to listen to us and the former nursing director who wasn’t a [removed]. My family member is paying astronomical prices for crap care, we are in the process of finding a new place to live for my loved one. TRUST ME POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS: there are too many places like this around to settle for one so overpriced!!! Do your homework before choosing a facility

  • Beware, Minimal Staffing, Horrible Food Service, Mixups

    Mom is safe there and able to get assistance from a call button. Sometimes it takes too long. The food has gone downhill. A corporate dietician determines meals. Now using a menu system. No written menu. Witnessed nursing aides telling residents what is on menu, 2 main choices with alternative being a hotdog, hamburger or deli sandwich. Last time I saw mom eating one of their sandwiches the bread was so stale she was having difficulty holding the sandwich without it falling apart. One night they were offered entrees of pizza or turkey pot pie (Amish style). Mom chose the pizza as did the other 2 ladies and a side salad. The salad bowl was very small, the size of a desert bowl you may see at a all you can eat place. The pizza was 1/2 of a frozen personal size pizza,served cold and cold after reheating. All ladies complained. One telling me the food there is lousy and wont do any good to complain. "Dietician" is not providing balanced meals. Diebetics shouldnt be having a meal of carbs and lettuce. Normal dining room staff gone, aides taking meal orders, serving and cleanup. Think there is a staffing issue. No Director yet. And management team changes. 2 people have been there for the time my mom has been there. Others in nursing, overall Director, Activities Director, and Marketing Director have changed several times. Problems with coordination of medications between facility and OMnicare has not been resolved after repeated attempts with both parties. And mom is being charged for their mistakes. Have had issues making sure mom's care has been provide correctly from the beginning. Mom had no running water to take a shower and then no hot water in first week. One aide has been repeatedly rude to mom, one ignored moms page when she fell recently and was standing outside her door, one pulled off mom's sheets from her bed as a way of encouraging mom to walk to her meals and returned them without laundering them. More and more problems. With the change in personnel in critical positions, difficult. They also keep all records manually including contact info. Have repeatedly contacted me on the wrong phone number. No database or central computer system for patient records. Have witnessed staff working on records like it was an urgent project. Should be done daily. Moms laundry is not done weekly like she is paying for it to be done. What I have heard from other family members, they have transferred family members to Broadmore becuase of the same thing happening elsewhere. When I read positive reviews I can only assume that family members are not there enough to witness these things or the resident simply doesnt speak up. Someone at mom's table last night told me the food is lousy and doesnt do any good to complain. She ate her pizza cold. Horrible! For rent well over $3000 plus a care package, residents should be offered better meals at the very least.

  • The patient to aide ratio was lacking.

    The patient to aide ratio was lacking. There wasn't enough help.Things seemed to take forever even to get an aspirin. A little more help would have been good. I was very pleased with the activities. He ate well I would say the food was a five. I met an aide and it was a younger person and they left my loved one alone and he took a fall so maybe a little more awareness or training for the new employess would be good. They were very good with communication they would call right away. The size was nice not so big this was one reason we picked it.
