I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mother was a resident of this nursing home. I visited her there every other day for approximately six years. The facility itself was suitable for use as a nursing home. I mean, it was not a modern building as I would have preferred, but it had everything a patient could need to be comfortable. There was even an adjoining park where patients and their visitors could go and enjoy the fresh air. The building was spacious, and the amenities plentiful.There was always a lot of activities for the patients. A lot of times the patients were treated to field trips; such as the fair and the movies. I went with them a few times. I noticed that the patients were well looked after and cared for on these trips.I got to know the staff quite well; meaning the nurses and CNAs. The majority of the staff were pretty decent folk, and seemed to have a genuine concern for the patients there, but there were a few who had no business being in a nursing home. My mother was a combative patient, she didn't trust a lot of the staff, and at times she didn't want them to touch her. Not to clean her. She didn't want to take her medicine most times. I know this must have been hard for the staff to deal with. I walked in my mother's room one day, and found a CNA physically fighting with my mother. My mother was screaming for help and no-one came to check on her. The CNA told me that my mother kicked her in the breast, and it hurt. On other occasions my mother ended up with injuries that nobody could say how they happened (including a broken finger). My mother passed a way a few months ago, and I feel like I should have found a better nursing home for her. Miami Gardens Care Center staff can use more training in how to handle combative patients.
