Some staff at Inland Valley Care and Rehab were incompetent, and the physical therapy department was inaccurate. When she was about to do something, I was watching the act, like 20 reps and she did 30, but when they wrote it down and stated the report, they gave numbers that were lower. They were very inaccurate. They also claimed that I was trained on the left for a week, which I wasn’t as I was only trained for one or two minutes one day of the week. It was a false report. Then my wife fell from her chair because she wasn’t positioned right, and the report was inaccurate.
The food was adequate; I would give it a 3, and I would give 2 for cleanliness. I was told by someone that I had to hire someone to work with me with the left. They went to interview the person, but I have to hire the person to be there at the facility, and I would have to hire the same person to come to my home. I’m just concerned that I would get the left unless I hired someone that they recommended, and I thought that was very unethical. They wanted to interview someone on my behalf, and I was compelled to hire that person to be there at the facility, and I was also compelled then to hire that same person to come to my home and help my home. They said if I didn’t do that they would not recommend the left for me to have the left, and I thought that was very unethical of them to do that as well.
Some of the nurses when they come in, they were making a mistake with the meds. Instead of talking to the doctor and finding out why there was a change and what the change was, they were very unethical and unprofessional about when they turn the medications that were given were the wrong medications. They had to take my wife by ambulance to a hospital. I think that they might have done something.
They don’t like it when family members get involved. When we tried to put my wife back in there, they claimed they didn’t want to take her back because I was too involved in my wife’s care. If you care about your wife and try to advocate -- that’s what a husband should do -- but they said they don’t want my wife because I advocated too much for her. She fell from the wheelchair because the CNA was not properly trained. And because I advocated for my wife, they didn’t want to readmit her.
