Really would like to give no stars but this site won't accept that. My grandmother entered McKinley Park Care Center for rehabilitation after hip surgery. At the time her mental capabilities and health were excellent for her age. I watched her mental and physical health decline during her short stay at McKinley Park Care Center. She developed severe diarrhea and became lethargic and disoriented. I alerted the staff about her condition and urged them to take her off a medication for anti-constipation. They repeatedly ignored my requests. Days passed as my grandmother became sicker and sicker. Finally they ran some tests and admitted her to the hospital the same day. She was diagnosed with C-difficile and died in the hospital a day later. The staff should have been trained to recognize the symptoms of C-difficile as it is an opportunistic bacterial infection that the elderly in hospitals and care homes are susceptible to. They were helping her with frequent bathroom trips for days but did recognize this common symptom of C-Diff or take her off the anti-constipation medication! In summary I believe the staff is poorly trained, there are unsatisfactory methods of communication between family and care-givers and as a whole they don't appear to be invested in quality patient care. Do not send your loved one to McKinley Park Care Center!

McKinley Park Care Center is probably the worst. They just weren't attentive at all. At one point, we found some of my mother's medication on the ground. They are not supposed to leave her unless she takes the medicine, so finding it on the ground is not a good sign. The floors were dirty, and there was an odor. The room she had was loud and dirty. I think that one had about three people in a room, and it was crowded with not much privacy. Her location was by the nurse's stand and their game room which was very noisy.

McKinley Park Care Center was not very good because they had too many orients. It's going to take a long time for them to come up to our standards. They're learning I guess, but it's hard for them to understand the way we live. They do good work and everything, but sometimes the job is more important than the people that are in there. They seemed to take care of the patients pretty good and keep a watchful eye on them to some point. Regarding the facility itself, it was clean but it was more like a hospital. I think they have enough staff but they're not well orientated. They need to improve on care for their patients and visitors.
