This place is awful. My mother came here for short term subacute rehab. Rehab patients are mixed with residents, staff is argumentative and uncaring. Food is terrible. My mothers bed is less than a foot from her room mates. They make residents go to bed at 8 pm. My mother developed a potentially fatal side effect from her medication (she is a nurse practitioner) and they told her if she stopped it she would have a seizure. The staff is clearly overworked - took over a half hour to answer my mothers call light.
Stay away at all costs from this nursing facility. It is run down, the equivalent of a Red Roof Inn. Spiders climbing up walls. Serve cream that has soured with breakfast. Have only one flavor of Ensure, if that. Medical director is an insensitive cad who overmedicated my mother with Coumadin and Oxycontin, worsening her condition. Physical therapist gave up on my mother who when she transferred to another facility was able to have a shower and stand up. Abusive to family, no questioning of doctor is allowed. No respect for family's grieving process. Director of nursing screamed at me, "YOUR MOTHER IS DYING" and I mean screamed, even though I already knew the diagnosis for some time. Then she turned her head and rolled her eyes about me. Unprofessional place and people at all levels. Found my mother laying in a pool of vomit and she had rung the buzzer and been ignored. Dangerous, since while there she could not sit up by herself. She could have choked to death on her own vomit. And a worker looked right at mother covered in vomit and said she had not vomited. This place should be shut down. Not one redeeming quality. Scary people that think the terminally ill elderly should just be left to die. Rated this place with one star because I had to in order to submit this review. But the truth is, it deserves ZERO stars.
