My husband was a resident of Garden City Healthcare Center. I didn't like any experience with it to tell you the truth. I had to make an appointment to see him, even though I had my shots. I had to make an appointment and they take you to a big room where there are tables that are scattered, and they let you visit for no more than a half-hour. I didn't like the idea that I just couldn't go in and visit him as I did in another facility; that's number one. Number two, the staff was not very well-educated on their jobs, that's for sure. I had to ask a lot of questions. He wasn't happy at all. Where he fell, one place on his arm had opened up, and when I took him to the ER, they had cleaned it out and bandaged it. He had that same bandage on when we went to pick him up, 10 or 15 days later. So, I called the nurse out to the car, and I said, "Is this bandage never been changed? How could they give him a shower and all that, and they haven't changed that bandage?" So, she changed it for me. It isn't infected, thank goodness, but she said, "Keep an eye on it." That irritated me. They had never changed that bandage. I didn't think he had gotten care there at all that he should have.
The office that I went into was kind of chaotic. I couldn't go into the building except for that one room they had. I had to go all the way around the building to get into this one room to go see him. So, I can't tell you what the rest of the facility looks like. I went to that big room. They had tables in it, and that seemed to be okay. It was like a big recreation room, and they had tables about 10 feet apart so people could go in there and visit their loved ones. That's the only room I was in, and it looked okay, but I never did see the rest of the facility.
