Mom was there to rehab. 1st day there she was put on Lexipro & family wasn't informed.Therapists got her walking but nursing & aides kept her in a wheelchair with a restraint until she stopped trying to stand or walk.Mom became very ill while there & had to be taken to ER. She had to have energency gallbladder surgery.Surgeon said someone should have known she was very ill.she got VRE while there...a contagious UTI. We were told mom had to get VRE by being cleaned by someone with unclean gloves or dirty hands (not washing or changing gloves after cleaning a contagious person). While there an aid was seen picking up a dirty cut up orange from the kitchen floor and fed it to a resident. The orange had just been stepped on.

Compared to most it is the only choice. Not enough nurses per resident. Semi private rooms create breeding grounds for spreading illnesses as do community rooms. A resident with pneumonia was brought into the community room every day for meals with no effort to contain her. She even told everyone she had pneumonia as she coughed all over residents. Nurses are LPN's not RN's and are not very attentive. Aides are spread out too thin and aren't always around. Dietary feeds very unhealthy foods, sugars, salty foods and lots of caffeine to heart and kidney patients. Charge is about $250/day to hold a room. Outrageous. They mix all kinds of residents together which is not good. Long term rehab patients should be separate from others, terminal patients should be separated and patients with severe dementia should be separated and contained. Instead they roam the hallways freely running down people with wheelchairs. I think long term care facilities are all designed wrong. They don't allow privacy or dignity for residents. Nursing care is fair to bad. Not enough aides per patient. Medicare needs to overhaul it's requirements to provide long term care with privacy and dignity in these places. Daily rates here and at other places are a rip off.

The staff are very friendly to me, my family, and my Grandmother. She is checked on regualy, and she doesn't complain about the service. Her sheets are changed, she's well fed, and they give her daily baths when she asks for them. So far, she's been in Woodland Oaks for about five months now, and she's not had any problems with their service. If I had to choose somewhere again, I'd choose Woodland Oaks again.

Horrible experience. Facility should be closed. Many of staff incompetent and uncaring staff. Arrogant, threatening "front office." Human dignity and legal rights violated. Elderly treated like garbage. Safety disregarded.
