Our father is clinging to life due to the extremely poor care received at this nursing home. Specifics: he was dehydrated and not given ample fluids. He had zero body fluid when rushed to a nearby hospital today; His kidneys had shut down. His lips were cracked and he was craving liquids. He was only in the nursing home for 2.5 weeks and was never evaluated by a physician. When questioned about the fluid intake I was told by the "in charge" nurse that they are not mandated by law to place this information in the patient chart.It was kept in the patient room. I asked her how could she be sure that my father was not dehydrated and she assured me that liquids were given to him on a frequent basis. Another concern is that they do not bathe the patients on a regular basis. The hospital said they will bathe him because of his strong body odor when admitted. We could not find his clothes on a recent visit and finally they were found in a dirty pile in the bottom of the closet in his room. My sister went to the washing machine and washe d and dried them herself. He had been wearing filthy clothes as observed by several family members on a recent visit. He had mouth sores and blisters in his mouth and apparently, they never swabbed and swished his mouth on a regular basis as it had been detected that he had bacteria in his mouth. His breath gave that away! If you decide to admit your loved one to this nursing facility, I strongly suggest you have someone in the room with him at all times to observe and to make sure that they get the care they deserve. Insist that a physician evaluate your loved one within 2 weeks minimum. I would not treat a dog like this! He is in God's hands now and we can only pray he survives this horrific ordeal. I can't help but wonder how many other patients are receiving the same treatment.
