I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mother was in Willows a couple of times before she was moved to a facility in Chico where passed. They were good at Willows. They were definitely overworked than as everybody is. I’ve noticed that they’re just understaffed; there were too many patients to one person and they do what they can. The last facility she was at in Chico, she had a big comfortable private room so it was more of a room than a hospital bed; while the one in Willows it was more of like a hospital room with two patients and a curtain. The accommodation though at that time they were full, and both times that she was there she had to be moved. They had a long term patient there that was very demanding on her and dominated the room. Then they moved her in with a young gal who made a lot of noise which kept my mother from being comfortable. She really wanted to go home and be in her own bed. She checked herself out since I left and went home to Louisiana, and she ended up falling so we moved her to Chico where she passed. They were definitely overcrowded over there at that time -- there’s not enough accommodation -- but overall I thought they did a good job. I think overall the rooms were acceptable. They do a really good job in upkeep; cleanliness is excellent. You didn’t have that urine smell as you walk down the hallway -- like I noticed in Louisiana they’re really bad. In Willows the staff was very uplifted for being so overworked. It’s a small nursing home. There’s a little spot outside I guess it’s a smoking section and theres a non-smoking courtyard. Those little areas are not really enough to move a wheelchair around; just one chair at a time. Theres a staff member there that needs high recognition, her name is Lavina. She went out of her way, and I got to talk to her a little bit. She’s a nurse and she's a people person. She always had a smile on her face. She’s just outstanding because she goes beyond as far as morale and compassion. She puts her patients first. I wish they all could be like that.
