I am a friend or relative of a dischared resident June 11, 2014

This place can not deal with any thing beyond what they think is normal. My Mother was admitted as a trach patient needing physical therapy. She also had very bad anxiety attacks that they did not know how to deal with. We asked for a regular schedule of anxiety medicine that they could not understand. The nurses could not read the charts from previous nurse notes posted. The Doctor was not very helpful and just proceeded to tell y mother she would never be able to be removed from the vent/trach removed. She has been home a week and has been successful at doing both. Medicine that was not needed was prescribed by both the doctor and nurses. One hand can not follow what the other hand does. Administration was unhelpful and almost always unavailable. Physical therapy was the best service she received. Speech therapy was slow in helping her make progress. Moms family had to do most of the work for her. Please send you loved one to a place that can handle unusual situations. This one can not. Also when mom was discharged the doctor wrote out prescriptions for medicine she no longer had to take.

My father was in Brentwood for only six days before we removed him and took care of him ourselves for Alzheimer's, within three days he was so much better with us taking care of him. They did not inform us that he was on risperidone (Risperdal), a medicine for schizophrenics, in which he is not nor ever been. We feel he was on risperidone (Risperdal) to knock him out all day and night so they wouldn't have to deal with him. The staff would not answer our questions and we were told to ask the administration, when the administration were asked the questions they gave us the run around. The so called Doctor was very rude and uninformed. Avoid this place like the plague.
