Currently trying to get my father moved from here. The staff is rude they laugh at you when you ask them to call the dr. They haven't given him a bath in 3 days. I will be contacting the board of health and a attorney.

Bartow Center Staff most are rude they do not answer call lights in a timely manner has taken them up to an hour to answer the call light. The place smells especially on the 300&400 hallways they let people sit in urine and BM fecies all day. They do not monitor your medicine including pain med. and let you run out. Then while you are in pain for hours they won't call the Dr. to let him know what's going on so he can call the and get an order for pain meds out of the EDK box which they have to have a code for from the pharmacy.I have expressed the call light situation to the Administrator, Social Worker, ADON,and the Unit Manager nothing has been done and it is the same CNA's day after day. They always ask how things are going but doesn't really do anything when you put complaints in. They have a fast turnaround on staff. I have even heard staff say they are going to quit due to way they treat their patients and they did and went to work at another facility or the hospital. They treat patients like they are in jail. I would not recommend this place for my dying dog if it had cancer. When the patients family they are there act all courteous to them and to that patient but its a different story when the family leaves. One of the Doctors that comes there is very rude and argumentive toward his patients. He doesn't let you talk and always talks over you and he hurries up to get out of the room so he doesn't have to listen to you. The staff also talks about the patients in the hallways where other people can hear what's going on which this is against patients privacy rights (HIPPA Law). Some nurses and CNA's even tell some patients what's going on with other patients. Well if you bring a family member or a friend here to be a patient all I got to say is you have been WARNED!!! So beware of what is going on with your family member or friend especially if they do not know of thing going on. Everything in this review is very true and can be proved to you.

My uncle stayed in Bartow Center and the place didn't smell good. He was in shared room with two or three other people. I didn't like anything in that facility. It would be better if they had less people in the room and if they would take care of the smell.

My mother was at the Bartow Center for a rehab stay for a few months after a hospitalization. We selected this facility mainly because it was really close to our house and we were able to see her every day. The facility took her Medicare and AARP supplement, and handled all the insurance paperwork. It did not take us long to arrange a tour and get her into the nursing home after her doctor said she could leave the hospital.Overall, we found the staff polite and professional. Though the evening staff sometimes took a little longer than needed to get to her when she put on the call bell, we spoke with the director about this and they seemed to take our concerns seriously. We absolutely loved the social worker, Mary, who was helpful, honest, and overall great to work with. She helped us get my mother's house set up with needed equipment and home nursing in no time. This facility is not the fanciest nursing home, but it is clean and the staff is good. What more could you want for someone you love?
