I am/was a resident of this facility
Coming from the hospital, I was there for 2 days, with helpful PT/OT, enabling me to return home. Of course the Administrative staff disagreed and I released my self (AMA). Therefore they held as hostage the medications I had been receiving, releasing them only after the intervention of my PCP. In addition the quality of the facilities varies. I had an antiquated room with bathroom down the hall,and one dim overhead light, not controllable at the bedside, The bed was almost as old as I am, controlled by a crank; the patient could not change the height or position of the bed. Water was delivered only by request, warm, no ice. As a rehab patient, I needed sleep. Instead, I was located next to patients with dementia, shouting through the evening.

I visited this facility
I visited this facility several times. My fiance works here. It's a mediocre facility. Though I must say it's better than some I have seen. There are of course those staff members that don't really care, but there are a number who DO care and will take better care of the ones that get neglected by some of the lazier CNA's. There are only a handful of CNA's that really do a good job, and the majority do an okay job. It's in no way an ideal living condition, but, again, it's still better than a lot of places.The residents all receive good care, they are clean and taken care of. The facility is rather clean, of course it's not spotless ilke a hospital, but it stays clean. There is a good kitchen staff and a variety of foods for the residents. Soaps, towels, diapers, brushes etc. I must mention the fall rate at this facility. Not so much that there are a ton of falls, but the nurses here are very good. They report every 'fall' (which in a nursing home even if they sit down on the floor it's a 'fall'). There have been a few major accidents in the last year, requiring a state audit and resulting in several lawsuits, but the place remains open and running smoothly.I rate it a 4 and not a 3 because I know the work my fiancÃŒÂ© does, and she is an excellent care giver. There are rarely falls on her shift, the residents are always calm when she's there.(for a nursing home that is) Overall it's a good place. Not top notch, but much above the average nursing home.
