I am a friend or relative of a resident

Upper East Side Rehabilitation and Nursing Center is an excellent place. The place was renovated, so it has all brand-new flooring, beds, equipment, and paint. The staff has been wonderful, and the equipment and gym for rehab are terrific. My husband has only been there for a week and is not an easy person to get along with, but he is happy there.

I am/was a resident of this facility

Dewitt Nursing & Rehab Center was much more run like a factory. You got up at a certain time, you had a chance to shave or get dressed, and then your breakfast was delivered to your table in your sleeping area. And then, at a certain time, you had to get in your wheelchair, line up near the elevator, and the woman who was running the elevator would check your name off, and then they will deliver you to the basement, which is where they had their physical rehab. It had the least agreeable environment for me. Some of the staff had been there too long and should have been retired. They were kind of indifferent and tired, they had done the same thing for too long, and nobody was ever telling them to lighten up a little bit.

The room was a communal sleeping space. It had about four or five beds. The only privacy you had between the beds was this curtain, and you had a little night stand and a table that was on roller, then in-between these two, which were duplicates of each other, was the toilet. And there was a door on either side, so you would go into one room, and you could go out through the other room, but I wasn't used to that sort of thing. This is the place where you had to be taken by a staff member to be bathed because the bathing facilities only had a door and a bath tub. You walk into it, they fill it up, and they scrub you down, dry you off, wash your hair, and all that.

The food wasn't particularly outstanding. It looked to me from the outside that it was an apartment house, maybe all 20 stories, and I found it interesting because I could smell cigarette smokes all the time particularly where the offices were for the building. I found it interesting when they opened up that the amount of cigarette smoke or tobacco smoke that would kind of drift out was something that stayed in my mind. I wasn't a prude, but I thought, isn't it interesting that they are promoting good health and everybody smokes? The nursing staff was different from the people who had a little more responsibility and were bored to death. You get a menu there, you can choose what you want, they would forget sometimes to put something on my tray, and I would have to comment when they were delivering it to me.
