With so many options, consider a different place for your loved ones. My mom was in skilled care to be short term stay after a hospitalization and a urinary type surgery so she needed to get her strength back and to start eating better. Staff were very busy. No one available in a timely manner to help her to the restroom so frequently she would have to wet the bed. Limited PT given so she laid in bed majority of the time. Minimal assistance with meals. On a Monday, she started vomiting and no staff notified me. On Tuesday afternoon the nurse called me to tell me that my mom was complaining of pain to all the staff and she was going to get an Xray. I called my mom who sounded very ill even over the phone. I called the nurse back and her reply was "I told you I was going to get an Xray and it is normal". I went to Bishop Drumm and walked in to my mom's room and she was projectile vomiting. I turned on her call light to get help from a staff member. After about 15 minutes an aide came in and helped me clean her up and went on her way, I found the nurse I had spoke to on the phone. I said my mom is vomiting, she states "I know she has been all day, there is not much we can do here about that, she just needs some rest." My mom ended up being transported by ambulance to the hospital that day and she was diagnosed with a Perforated Ulcer and had emergency bowel surgery. I was up all night at the hospital with her. Got to bed at 7:30am and Bishop Drumm called at 8:30am. I remember thinking at least they care enough to call and ask how my mom is doing. NOPE. Not one question about how my mom was doing. They were calling to tell me that I needed to come and remover her items from the room or pay $250.00 to keep her room. I should of known right from the start when they didn't have her name correct on the door or make an effort to correct it, that this wasn't going to be a good choice. Again, I emphasize that with so many options consider a different option for your loved ones. She had previously been in Altoona after another hospitalization, I so wish they would of had an opening. Night and day difference in the care she received.
