Regretful Son in Toms River September 30, 2011
I am a friend or relative of a resident
Unfortunately, my father's two-week-plus stay at the Holiday Care Center nursing home in Toms River, New Jersey, in 2010, was not a good experience. My mother, a former RN, and I were with my father during visiting hours every day of his short stay, but that did not prevent needless complications, such as a urinary tract infection from unhygienic Foley catheter care and frustrating breakfasts due to the staff's inability to give my father his dentures, which my mother cleaned the evening before and left in his nightstand. In addition, due to inadequate staffing during the busy afternoon hours, meal distribution was slow and inefficient and assistance for the inevitable bathroom visits that followed sometimes took up to 30 minutes to arrive. I also found it disturbing that patients did not have access to water in their rooms. Because it was easier for my mother and I to care for my father at home, we pulled him out of Holiday Care and arranged for a visiting physician, nurse, and therapist to attend to him. Holiday Care Center may be better than some nursing homes, but it was not good enough for my father. My mother and I were fortunate that we could take better care of him at home before he passed away.
