My sister was at Stafford Healthcare. The staff was kind and friendly and did a wonderful job with her care. They were excellent! I would give them a high rating.

My father was admitted to this facility in August of this year after having a fall at home. Initially the staff were attentive, but as the days went on I became more and more concerned about the lack of assesment within the nursing department. On several occaisions i asked the nurse in charge of my fathers care for something and was met with "I am passing meds now" or "i am doing a admit now, and that is a priority".I always felt like i was a thorn in the staffs side when asking questions about his care. There are several excellent nurses there, but unfortunatly they do admissions, or are in a administrative role. My father began having diarrhea after a antibidotic course, being in the healthcare profession i was concerned about a possible infection of the gut caused by use of antibiotics. I asked the Nurse to please check into the possibility of this infection and obtain a culture to rule it out, This was never done, I assumed it had been as i did not recieve any further feedback, and i was overwhelmed and stressed re my fathers decline. My father insisted he needed to go home, as he was being left in bed , or in his wheelchair for long periods and was having alot of back pain. When home, the diarrhea continued and i took him to the doctor where it was confirmed he had the infection i was afraid he had. He also had excoriation from diarrhea and a small open area that was not documented or assessed before discharge. By this time, dad had been suffering with the diarrhea for three weeks, My father began a rapid decline exasberated by this infection, and underlying exsisting medical conditons, and sadly passed away the other day. I am not directly blaming the facility for his death, but for contributing to his suffering, and shortening the time he had left. I wrote the director of nursing with my concernes after discharge, and after a week recieved a reply that she would look into it, no responce since, and it has been several months.
