I am a friend or relative of a resident
My wife's sister and brother in law have been at Sterling House in Gt. Bend, Kansas for three years. There has been problems from the start. My sister in law was supposed to be on a low salt diet and the doctor's orders have not been followed. The food there was bad and they were unable to keep the kitchen staff so the other employee's to do the cooking.
We got a lady ombudsman to check this problem out and she did get some of the meals for my sister in law's meal for the better.
In 2012, the rule was that there were to be two people to help my sister in law to the bathroom. When she called for help, only one lady came. She said that she could help her. When in the bathroom, she dropped her, fell on her and it was bad. She was air lifted to Wichita where they found she had fractured vertbrae in her neck and two in her lower back. She was put in a molded cast on her back and a neck brace which she is still wearing since the late winter of 2012.
The neck brace does not allow her to raise her head up and as she has to only see the floor.
We are going to get the ombudsman to take another look into this problem and the lack of care. When we visited in November, the meal that we saw served, was soup and sandwiches for the main two meals that day.
As for me, it would be a cold day in well if I were living there and not standing up for what I feel that is proper and honest.
