SISTERS GRIEF May 29, 2015

I am a friend or relative of resident

I MADE MY FIRST VISIT TODAY. MY BROTHER WAS BROUGHT THERE FROM THE HOSPITAL, WITH A BRAIN BLEED. WHEN I FOUND HIM SITTING BY HIMSELF IN THE LOBBY OF HIS FLOOR, IT TOOK MY BREATH AWAY, HE LOOKED SO BAD.HIS FIRST, LAST AND ALL IN BETWEEN WORDS TO ME WERE..."PLEASE GET ME OUT OF HERE. THE STAFF CONSTANTLY YELLS AT US...I HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR WATER FOR A LONG TIME....I DON'T SEE ANY DOCTORS HERE AND I THINK I AM GOING TO DIE HERE...PLEASE GET ME OUT AND TAKE ME TO ANOTHER HOSPITAL". THE FIRST THING I DID WAS TRY TO GET HIM A GLASS OF WATER. AFTER A 15 MINUTE "DISCUSSION" WITH ONE OF HIS "NURSES" I ASKED TO SEE A SUPVR. ONE CAME AND THE DISCUSSION CONTINUED. I PLEADED WITH THEM TO PLEASE GET MY BROTHER SOME WATER. ANOTHER 15 MINS PASSES AND FINALLY SOMEONE BROUGHT HIM A SMALL PLASTIC CUP OF WARM WATER. DURING THIS FIASCO, ANOTHER PATIENT CAME UP TO ME IN HIS WHEEL CHAIR AND VIOLENTLY ATTACKED ME WHILE SHOUTING..."GET OUT OF HERE". HE CONTINUED TO ATTACK ME AND FINALLY A "NURSE" TOOK HIM DOWN THE HALL (TO SIT IN THE HALL). I ASKED FOR A SECURITY PERSON AND WAS TOLD "THERE ARE NO SECURITY PEOPLE THAT WORK HERE". WHEN I ASKED TO SPEAK TO MY BROTHERS "NURSE" (WHO HAS THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ENTIRE FLOOR) HE WAS NOT VERY FORTHCOMING WITH INFORMATION, SUCH AS: "WHAT IS THE NAME OF MY BROTHERS DOCTOR?" HE GAVE ME THE NAME OF SOMEONE WHO IS NOT EVEN ON STAFF. THEN I SAID"WHO IS THE REFERRING DOCTOR" HE SAID HE HAD NO IDEA. I ASKED HIM IF HE KNEW WHAT MEDS MY BROTHER WAS ON...AGAIN...HE HAD NO IDEA. I IDENTIFIED MYSELF AS HIS SISTER, SHOWED HIM MY ID AND TOLD HIM I WAS MY BROTHERS MEDICAL PROXY. STILL I RECEIVED NO ANSWERS. NO ONE IS ADDRESSING MY BROTHERS BRAIN BLEED, AND HE WAS TAKEN OFF OF HIS ANTIDEPRESSENTS....COLD TURKEY. MY BROTHER IS A MESS AND THIS PLACE IS JUST A WAREHOUSE FOR PEOPLE WITH MONEY. TOO BAD THEY WILL CONTINUE AS VERY FEW PEOPLE WILL TAKE THE TIME AND EFFORT TO PUT A STOP TO THE WAY THE PATIENTS ARE TREATED.

MY MOM IS A RESIDENT AT AFFINIITY AND I CAN TELL YOU I AM NOT HAPPY. THEY ARE UNDERSTAFFED AND THE WEEKEND IS WORSE. ALL MY MOM ASKED FOR IS SOME COLD WATER SEVERAL TIMES A DAY. FOR FIFTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH I THINK AT THE LEAST THEY CAN SUPPLY THAT. HER CLOTHER ARE ALWAYS MISSING EVEN THOUGH WE REQUESTED THAT THEY DON'T DO HER LAUNDRY, WE ARE THERE EVERY OTHER DAY AND TAKE IT HOME. IT SEEMS THE HELP IS TALKING ABOUT A STRIKE AND A LOT OF PATIENTS WERE VERY UPSET TODAY. IF I DON'T HEAR FROM THE ADMINISTRTOR I WILL BE CALLING THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE.

When I read the reviews ,I was worried that my Dad was going in for sub acute rehab. But I have to say the nurses have been wonderful. The pt department is great and is more than willing to discuss his progress. The aides have been attentive and social worker was very informative. I am there at least every other day for 3 weeks and really have not seen very little to complain about. I heard new management is has been trying to make improvements. And they have. It feels good to leave knowing my Dad has been in good hands.

My father-in-law was at Affinity Skilled Living. It was beautiful, with big, wide hallways and a nice courtyard. The people were nice there. They're very busy in a place like that. The rooms were very clean.

Because Affinity Nursing Home was only eight years old, we thought it was modern, so we placed my husband there. However, the family didn't like it very much. I wasn't impressed with this facility at all. They weren't that bad, they were just okay. It also wasn't that clean. The staff was unimpressive. They had problem with the organization and there wasn't enough staff.

We like the Affinity Skilled Living and Rehabilitation Center. It's clean and very well-maintained. So far I'm very pleased with it.

I visited this facility

Of all the facilities I toured, Affinity seemed to be the most hygenic and clean. The physical therapy department was impressive, and the nursing staff seemed very qualified and caring. We had a sit down meeting with the rehabilitation unit and they assured us that our loved one's needs would be met, if not surpassed. The recreation department also seemed very active and involved with the residents. Many of the activities they provided matched the interests of our loved one. All in all, Affinity skilled living was higher on the possibility list. We also sat down and spoke with the fiscal team. They were very clear and concise. The social worker informed us that she would advocate for our loved one and apply for medicaid/medicare, which would alleviate some of the expenses from our family. Many of the staff seemed genuinely concerned for the care of our loved one, and were open to our many questions and concerns.
