I have a family member in this facility. I have been visiting my family member at this facility for over a year. They are understaffed in all areas. The patients are not being tended to on a regular basis, the food is terrible, the facility needs a lot of repairs done due to the age , when u walk in the front door it has a very strong ammonia & feces smell and the billing statement I received is unacceptable and does not give a break down of charges. It is a down right shame how the patients are neglected and uncared for. I believe that a proper inspection needs to be scheduled and completed as soon as possible before tragedy strikes.

We first visited the facility without my grandmother, took a tour and were not impressed. Some of the patients were outside but it was a 95 degree day. A lot of the patients seemed ignored. My grandmother stayed here temporarily over a weekend. She came back home 5-10 pounds lighter (not good because she was already way underweight to begin with.) She was stiff, as if she hadn't had medications the entire time she was there. Her hair was a mess and she told me that they basically left her in her room the entire time to fend for herself. Her glasses were left behind and they refused to mail them to her home. Instead, we had to go back out (an hour drive) to pick them up. We went on a weekend. The facility was severely understaffed and there were only a handful of GNA's and nurses to take care of the whole entire facility. That's crazy. Some residents were left in the cafeteria to feed themselves but they obviously needed assistance (they probably had dementia based on behaviors.) I would never put another family member in this place ever again.

I visited this facility
My mother just had knee replacements at Laurel hospital and this rehab is across the street. This was actually one of the closest rehabs to us. this is by far one of the worst place I have ever been seen. This "rehab" is so unorganized. The two days I stayed there no staff too effort to listen to her. Her medications were given late, she was skipped for dinner and lunch, I'll say that again they did not give her lunch or dinner because they "didn't know" a patient was in the room. This rehab has bugs , and is very very unsanitary. I would highly recommend to save the life of your loved one and not send them here.

My father-in-law is getting therapy at Patuxent River Rehab and Nursing Home. He's learning how to groom himself and how to talk. However, he's not getting the treatment that he really needs to become self-sufficient. He stays in a sedated state when I know he can do better. There were a few times my wife and I were there and we didn't get a response from him. I think he feels much better when he's not sedated. He wants to get away from this place. They have some good people on staff but they're not doing all they can. I've also noticed that they seemed to care when we're there but who knows what happens in the middle of the night. They also seemed to be overwhelmed but I don't know if they're understaffed.
