  • Don't put mom or dad here

    My mother recently lived at oakmont Carmichael. I removed her because of the Carmichael Nurse. She is an LVN not an RN and has very little experience as a nurse. She failed to care for my mother's needs. Lied about what she provided to her. Failed to follow Title 22 requirements. The Executive Director will ignore family members who question her. She does not return calls or emails and will not look at you if she knows there is an issue. My mother suffered under the medical care of the nurse. The care staff were excellent, with the exception of a few bad eggs. The traditions director now is brilliant. She is the first one who has cared for the residents as well as families. I pray the building management, ED and LVN get better.
