  • DON'T GO HERE!

    I am a social worker. An elderly (93 y/o) client was moved to Paul House (which changed from St. Paul to plain "Paul" at the turn of the year when the Lutherans sold it to a private firm). When she was there she fell and fractured her hip, was taken to hospital and returned. The Paul Home is trying to collect $50,000 from her for her extended stay following the injury, which would not have happened were she properly supervised and precautions such as mats placed beside her bed. This is manifestlly unfair and a form of senior financial abuse. We are getting her "lawyered up". In addition, the Home is trying to do all they can to discourage her from leaving and blocking the place she's chosen from taking her by saying she needs a sliding board for transfers, in which case they can't admit her. I've visited her at least eight times and there has never, ever been such a board used for transfers. We let that institution know. Further, the client, who is mentally very sharp, says the place is grossly understaffed and there were zero followup x-rays following her injury until she insisted on it to a visiting nurse practitioner. This is a terrible place and as a social worker of 40+ years experience with elderly, it ranks among the worst I've ever had clients in. Their attempt to take advantage of this client financially is beneath contempt and we will pursue a legal and/or government intervention to remedy.

  • Someone close to me was here after two weeks was sent to hospital for dehydration and uncontrolled sugar. Horrible patient care just interested in having patients drugged up so it will be easy. Very dissapointed!
