My father came to ManorCare AH after a hospital stay. My dad needed to regain his strength through physical and occupational therapy so that he could go back home. He had lived at home and was able to drive, cook, clean, do laundry, go to Senior Center every day, etc. He entered ManorCare weighing 180 pounds. He should have been there a month or two, max. Due to poor care, he was not discharged on time and ended up back in the hospital. He weighed 180 when he arrived and weighed in at 150 when he left. For 3 months, he had an undiagnosed infection (abscess) in his spine (discitis) which is incredibly painful. His RN said she was going to order a psych evaluation because she thought the pain was actually anxiety. Thank God for that misdiagnosis because it is what convinced me that my gut was right about this place. His diet was wrong (cardiac vs. diabetic) despite numerous meetings with Dietitians, Head of Catering, Administrators, Nurses, etc. They do not have anywhere near enough CNAs to help with toilet assistance or anything else. My dad hurt his hand because no one could help him get off the commode. His hand should have been stitched but instead was bandaged which resulted in necrosis. My dad had to use this bedside tray table as a "walker" to get to the bathroom. Press the call button, a CNA come in and turn the light off and indicates they or a nurse will be right back. They never return because they are so overworked. Obviously, if this had all happened at once at the start of my dad's stay, I would have run for the hills. My dad had just started to use a cane when he arrived, degraded to a walker and now is in a wheel chair. I wish someone had written an honest review of this place so I could have taken my dad elsewhere. I also wish I had known about Midwest Palliative Care sooner. I have a new Dr. for my dad. 3 days at the hospital on IV antibiotics, the abscess drained, proper care and my dad has gone from asking for hospice care to looking forward to starting physical therapy and gaining some weight at another facility so that he can go home and LIVE again!
