This place will tell you one thing and do another. So many issues. They took out the catheter before they would leave the hospital, even though it was ordered by the Dr. When we asked, they refused to put one in unless their Dr. prescribed it. My mom is heavy and was their to rehab to gain strength after a fall and UTI and they had her wearing diapers. They often took over an hour to clean her after being called, and they did not clean her properly. She had existing open wounds that needed care. The bed they put her in did not have working controls on one side and we were told they were going to get an adapter cable and fix it. I talked to 4 different people about getting the bed fixed, and 6 days later it was still not fixed.

I did not get to visit my mom on the 5th day there, but was there on the 6th day at 2pm. She was nearly in a vegetative state, completely unresponsive, unable to move or hold her call button. The "nurse" on duty (Nelson) told me that they had given her a dose of pain meds at lunch which is why she was so out of it and that we should come back after dinner. I didn't believe him and stayed for awhile with no change. After having to leave shortly to pick up my son, I came back and dinner was already done (she hadn't eaten in days) and my mom was still out of it. I then demanded to know what they gave her and when. I then found out that the pain medicine was given to her at 8am ( maximum time this medication stays in the system is 4 hrs). He tried to tell me it could last 12 hours, but when he realized that I was familiar with the medication, he back tracked a bit. I again expressed my concerns about the catheter and her wound issue. He told me that the wounds were all healed and she was doing great as of that morning. It is now 5pm and she is unresponsive. At this point I ask to have an ambulance transfer her to the ER.
Long story short, got to the ER and the nurse there told me her wounds were in bad shape, she was bleeding and was not clean at all, and that he was 90% sure without running any tests that she had another UTI and that was causing her problems. (tests did reveal he was correct).

DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING THEY SAY. If you have to have someone in this facility, make sure you can be there EVERY DAY and watch what they do on a regular basis.

My mother received terrible care. No communication between staff members. Front office and director do NOT care about patients. No truthful information on daily records. Always said that she ate and received meds on time and that was NOT true. We were there!

Overall, I enjoyed Victoria Gardens Nursing Home. Stated previously, I had volunteered there for about a year for a beginners nursing class. We would go about three times a week and stay for about three hours. When we were there, we got to tour the facility, become familiar with the staff and patients, and even perform certain tasks for nurses and doctors. The staff there are friendly and courteous. The facility itself is very quiet and looks cozy. Ive been out of high school for about 6 years now, and looking back I could say its one of the better nursing homes ive visited. My mother now volunteers there every tuesday, and she's grown quite fond of three women that she makes and buys little gifts for, ranging from their late 70's to a woman who is 94. I have been back recently to meet and visit with these women, and they seemed happy and in good health.

The front desk was extremely rude and did not communicate well with my grandmother and visitors. Their was no smile at the greeting. Other than that all the nurses and assistants, all the kitchen help, everyone else was absolutely fantastic. Welcoming, patient, and extremely generous. The building was very dull, but my grand mother adored the birds at the front room. The outdoors were kept up extremely well. I was surprised by the food quality, my grand mother loved every thing they served. As did I. Over all I found this to be a perfect living situation for my grand mother and I would not hesisate to allow her to stay there as long as she needs. I feel she is very well taken care of, and she truly enjoys her stay.

My mother-in-law spent her last few months of life at Victoria Gardens. We selected that facility because it seemed cheerful, clean, and a good nurse to resident ratio. My mother-in-law was bedridden but seemed to have lots of residents and workers come in and visit with her. She had been ill for many years so when my husband and I had an opportunity to go on a once in a lifetime vacation we were assured that everything would be fine and we should go. We left detailed instructions with the facility and with our son in case my mother-in-law should pass on while we were gone. She apparently had a stroke one night. The facility called my son and daughter-in-law who came over and stayed with her until she died. The facility did everything possible to help my son and daughter-in-law handle things until we could get back. They were very respectful and went above and beyond.
