I am a friend or relative of resident

A relative of mine was a resident at Warren Barr for over a year. Although they are staffed with very competent and caring doctors and social workers, the facility generally leaves something to be desired. Bedside commodes would be left uncleaned for the entirety of the day, bathrooms and floors were not disinfected or wiped down appropriately after accidents, and dressings were not changed as often as they should have been. The stench was oftentimes unbearable with workers caring very little to remedy the situation. The lack of cleanliness was severe enough to create major health crises for my relative. This could potentially be an appropriate arrangement for a senior who needs very little assistance and has few health issues, but it altogether unacceptable for those who require more help. That said, for those who are independent, they do have an interesting array of activities for residents.

I visited this facility

Warren Barr provides short term rehab and long term care in the urban setting of Chicago's gold coast not far from the glamor of north Michigan Avenue. The rehab program is good and typically well regarded in the professional community. It is close to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Rehab Institute of Chicago, and other metro Chicago acute care providers. There is a larger than average number of visiting physicians and often times resident physicians who rotate through the facility at times. Valet parking is offered, street parking is difficult to impossible to find, and local garages are not inexpensive. With the urban setting, there is no outdoor space for residents to access. Security is good with a closely monitored front lobby that is comfortable for waiting visitors. A busy place, it can be difficult sometimes for families to find a quiet and/or private place to visit. Many people prefer this type of setting more for a short term rehab than for a long term stay; they can get the business of rehab done well, but the accommodations will not have a home-like feeling but rather seem institutional. The common areas are nicely appointed, but most are for designated purposes with few places to just lounge or relax. Rooms are typically shared with a few privates available. Most rooms are of average size though some corner rooms are larger than average. Food at Warren Barr looks appetizing though not everyone will rave about it, and sometimes residents complain, though that is true of most facilities. The staff is generally very professional, attentive, and responsive. Typically the care is good and it is relatively uncommon for families to have significant complaints.

This nursing home has a 'med-surg' floor that is not sufficiently staffed. The nurse to patient ratio on a floor for patients with acute issues is 1 nurse to 17 patients. The nurses must cut corners to get work done. Dressings do not get changed everday, often going 3 days before they are changed and infections already present. Medications are not give but are charted as having been given. Medication errors are not caught so the patients receive often 3 days of the wrong medication.
