  • Stay away from this toilet

    The placed smelled like a toilet. The so called nursing staff are very rude. My mother needed her pain med and it was time for her to receive it. Had to ask many times for the nurse to give it to her. And the aids are very nasty as well. All you hear from the nurses it not my patient. Or from the aids not my job. Terrible terrible place
