My mom is in this facility right now (5/1/15). This has to be the worst facility ever! They leave you alone for hours even after you buzz for assistance. My mom had to use the bathroom and ended up peeing on herself twice before someone came to help. They have never had anyone with back injury so they didn't even know how to care for her. Most had to get retrained just to learn how to help her up. Last Wednesday I had to help her take off her shorts (they had put her to bed fully clothed in day wear). After 5 days they finally bathed her only to put her back in the same dress as she was wearing the day before. I had to (not that I minded - she's my mom), change her clothes, put her night gown on, pull her up on the bed, prop her so she would be comfortable and straighten out her sheets. Some nurses watched but never bothered to ask if I needed help. Now today after she finished using the bathroom, the nurse let her fall! Yes that's right fall. Ok, my mom is recovering from back surgery so yes she is not able to stand quite yet - she's 76 years and needs assistance... but that gal let her fall. She was a tiny person who had no business trying to assist by herself and instead of asking for help, let my mom fall on the tile floor. I don't the extent of her injuries just yet but will have a doctor look at her. Oh by the way this is only day 5 and my mom's roommate is going through the same torture. In summary, if you can help it, stay at home. Unfortunately we have a 2 story house with a tub...
