Cynthia is my name ! May 09, 2013

I am a friend or relative of resident

My father is a resident of this facility. He was not able to be rehabilitated and was transferred to a long term care unit there. Literally within months, he obtained pressure ulcers on his coccyx and both heels that can't be staged. They are necrotic and full of slough. There are other wounds also. I have to say that the staff on that unit are not competent at all, it is full of new LPN's, and the unit manager is an LPN too. When I spoke to the UM regarding his care, she basically threw her employees under the bus...needless to say, that didn't impress me at all. Since being there, my father has been to the hospital countless times with Sepsis, anemia, hypotension, renal failure and PEG tube placement just to name a few. The wound on his coccyx got so bad that it needed to be debrided and it is actually big enough to put your fist in, seriously. I seriously despise that place, but the insurances are soo picky and placement is limited. If I were able to take care of him at home I sure would. I have to prompt them to do lab work...I guess they don't know that when some elder people get confused it's a sign of infection. I did place a complaint with the State of Florida, via the abuse hotline. Now I have to follow through with other measures too. I want to make sure that our loved ones are taken care of by competent people. I rated them a 1 because zero is not an option.

They ignored my mother-in-law's medical chart. She is allergic to chocolate (and anything with cocoa) and citrus. They were constantly adding chocolate to her food tray and for the first month were slipping her Vitamin C pills which caused her to swell and have no use of her limbs. Her cell phone was stolen by a worker and they lost the clothing she had when she was admitted. Most of the workers were very nice but there are some bad apples and the administrative personnel are abhorrent!
