  • Glen Mills Senior Living - [name removed] GO ANYWHERE ELSE!

    [Name removed] REVIEW' Glen Mills Senior Living-EDITH W. (continued 'part 2' after"because if all the bells and whistles going off!") NOTE: Facts contained herein can be verified thru PA Dept. of Human Svcs. and/or PA State Police. ....I'll NEVER forget that comment of disinterest as long as I live! After reaching Dad's room, I found him in ACUTE RESPIRATORY FAILURE!!! No one had given him the doctor prescribed albuterol because no one had looked in on him to see if he needed it or not, violating specific doctor's orders to "keep him on a short trigger"..keep a very close watch on him. I didn't even need a stethoscope to hear the gurgling of the accumulated fluid in Dad's lungs. He had all the covers up on him, all his clothes were on plus a sweater and a towel was folded in half over his head, he placed there to keep the light out so he could sleep. No checks on him, no care, no albuterol, NOTHING! Dad's Death Certificate reads at letter 'D': Cause of Death- RSV as the originating cause of Death.Glen Mills Senior Living even failed to get him to the Emergency Room as they had done for Mom without doctor's orders. I had to drive him to the Energency Room myself, as no one offered to do anything for him. And we're paying over $6K per month for this? As for Five Star parent company...they're no better. The Reg. Dir. of Operations, the Reg. Dir. of Healthcare Svcs. and the Pres. and CEO did nothing. After Mom's return from the hospital, we reported incident after incident in accordance with our Residency Agreement. One such incident whereby a nurse who was giving a breathing treatment to Mom by mask, strapped the mask over my 91 1/2 ye old Mother's face and left the room, for getting to turn on the air compressor that supplies the air to breathe in the mask along with the albuterol and budesonide medication. When the nurse saw me arriving downstairs, it surely reminded her of something important, BECAUSE, she literally raced up the stair tower steps(I took the elevator as usual),arriving together at Mom's front door. Both of us entering as the Nurse exclaimed: "Oh my God, I forgot to turn it on!" as I watched Mom's rib cage rising and falling quickly, with her gasping for breath I saw the mask on Mom's face. Both Corporate and the facility disavowed the fact that Mom was almost suffocated ; instead promoting the statement that "the nurse never put the mask on Mom's face and had been called away on another emergency! AND that "she didn't suffer from any clinical issues!" Our family experienced total denial! WHAT A LIE! I was actually there and I saw the mask on Mom's face with her gasping for air when I entered the room with NO AIR COMPRESSOR RUNNING, just as the nurse had exclaimed. with my own two eyes. Do you want LIES AND COVERUPS as a main ingredient of your Loved One's care? Even the PA Dept. of Human Svcs. did nothing as they were trying to get the facility's 'Provisional License' restored to 'Regular Lic.' by October,2019. Because of this, the incident has been referred to The Insoector General of Pennsylvania's Office with Senator [name removed] spearheading the investigation into the PA Dept of Human Svcs. inaction concerning the facility negligence, including our Father's wrongful death and our Mother's breathing treatment gone horribly wrong and an additional matter I have first hand knowledge of, per the PA Dept. of Human Svcs. report to Corporate Pres. and CEO of Five Star: of a woman who choked to death on a hotdog while eating in the dining room at GMSL. A report was filed with the PA Dept of Human Svcs. indicating that firstly: no staff members in the Dining area at the time had training in performing the 'Heimlich Manuever' and secondly as I read the detailed report that: no one had called for EMT assistance until 17 minutes after the female resident lay aspirations on the floor.When EMT's arrived in the dining room, she was deemed dead at the scene. Is this the type of facility you want your family member staying at? Don't chance your Loved One's lives at this despicable personal care facility. Yes it is a 'personal care' facility and it is NOT covered under the statues of 'Assisted Living' facilities covered by the Bureau of Hearings and Appeals in Harrisburg, PA . Our own attorney didn't even know this, but now YOU DO!! The Five Star Corporate Attorney Firm took advantage of this and had our Dear Mother evicted..yes, evicted at 91 1/2 years old because the Judge declined to render an opinion since his Court did not cover 'Personal Care Homes' and a PA Dept. of Human Svcs. Licensing Manager, who wanted to restore the facilities 'Provisional' license to 'regular' license wrote a letter stating that our Mother was "a burden to the facility" and our family did not have further funds to fight the case. It cost us $5K in attornies fees, a life changing upheaval for our Mother and a New Community Fee of $3,500 at Sunrise Assisted Living which, by our personal witness, is far superior in EVERY way to what we experienced at Glen Mills Senior Living. The Director at the PA Dept. of Human Svcs Headquarters in Harrisburg has been given the assignment of investigating all of the elements of this horrible Senior Living experience...one of total incompetence! Please check for yourself, if you desire further substantiation prior to making your decision. Go on the PA Dept. of Human Svcs and enter in the appropriate fields: Personal Care Homes, Southeastern Office Delaware County, Glen Mills, 19342, Flen Mills Senior Living and go from there, perusing all the violations submitted to The Corporate Pres. and CEO's office. Thank you for caring enough about your Loved One to heed this honest, but painfully accurate review [removed] Mills Senior Living now appears to be under new ownership..No longer Five Star Senior Living, but now SNH Penn Tenant LLC, also located in Newton, Massachussetts, however. Recommend investigating further into their 'new' operating license that runs from [dates removed], keeping in mind that it's only a piece of paper. Based on your knowledge of all the lying, corporate deceit and governmental philosophy "it's better to cover up negligence and evict one person, than to shut down a facility for negligence and displace a hundred peoole!"; you are left with the decision.. "Should I place my Loved One at Glen Mills Senior Living?" I think not.. anywhere else is where you should go. Goid luck to you... and God Bless.

    I would not recommend this facility. They let their residents sleep all night in their own soaked urine bedding. When asked to have your loved one walked to the bathroom, they say they will and things will change - but sadly nothing changes.
