Nursing Home Reviews for Hebrew Home of Greater Washington

The nursing staff, with very few exceptions, is atrocious. My relative was here for sub-acute rehab after a major hip surgery -- she needed to learn to walk again after over three weeks in a hospital. The nurses and aides routinely ignored her requests for help (for example, they would not help her lift her legs to the bed when she was unable to do so herself), would yell at her if she asked simple questions (for example, when she asked what her blood pressure was, the nurse shoved the monitor in her face and said "read it yourself"), and often had to be asked 3 or 4 times before they would place orders for necessary meds. I witnessed all of these things while spending time at the Hebrew Home with my relative. One of the worst things i witnessed was when the nurse left the room as my relative was slowly walking to the bathroom with her walker -- my relative was unsteady on her feet after the hip surgery and at an ENORMOUS risk of falling, but the nurse (or aide) couldn't be bothered to stay in the room to assist. I helped her to the bathroom, wiped her once she was done, changed her clothes, brushed her teeth, and got her back to bed, and all the while the cal button was beeping and nobody came to help. That said, we were very pleased with the PT and OT staff, they were excellent, and there were one or two aides who seemed to genuinely care for their patients.

Service excellence: This is my second experience of havinh a family member in the rehab unit. The care is exception) from the perspective of aervice, caring and clinical expertise. We never had to put on rhe call light because the staff routinely checked in as well as anticipted the needs. Another plus is that the food is aiperb!

Just on day 2 saw two roaches on the walls, and heard staff talking about someone saying they saw roaches. The wheelchair they brought my father was filthy and smelled singly of urine. I took the coushion off that seemed like it was never cleaned, and proceeded to clean the filthy chair. I cleaned it 3 times before the smell subsided.

I had a thorough tour of Hebrew Home. It was very neat and up-to-date. It had friendly staff. There seemed to be something going on every day, so the residents were very active. The rooms were clean, neat, and very well put together in terms of amenities. The staff was very knowledgeable.

I visited here and was interested in moving my brother here. I filled out the application and the nursing home my brother is in submitted his medical information and we have not heard anything back from them concerning my brothers admission. We have called several times to ask about the status and have been given the runaround. for 3 months now. I am just glad I found out about the bad/corrupt administration here before I moved my brother.

We love Hebrew Home. My friend was in rehab there for five weeks. The food was not that good, and the dining area was like a cafeteria. However, they have to keep kosher, and because of that, food is not that delicious. Nevertheless, they have the most incredible rehabilitation weight machine and treadmill. Their equipment for rehab was fabulous.

Hebrew Home of Greater Washington is a very good facility. The staff is very attentive, and very responsive. The rooms are kept clean, and adequate. It is not luxurious. The food is very good.

If you care about your loved one, send them somewhere else. Although the therapy is good, and some of the nurses are good, some of the aides are HORRIBLE! The so-called activities are non-existent. We were forced to pay out of pocket for a private duty aide just so our mother could get the care that she needed without being yelled at.

We are going to move my mom to Hebrew Home. We chose this place because they had a good Medicare rating and they had a very nice facility. When we went to see it, it was all clean and the residents seemed happy and engaged. They had a very good physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy component. Their long-term rooms were large. Even the rooms that were shared, they were large enough that they can bring their own chair or dresser. They can decorate it. You can make it very homey. It did not look like a hospital room. There were residents that had been there six or seven years and they told me that they really just loved it. There were all kinds of activities all day long, i.e., music, bingo, games, outside trips, religious services, and dancing. You name it, they have all of that type of stuff. My mom is blind and most facilities aren't equipped to deal with patients that are totally blind, but this is one of the ones that did have experience with that. We have eaten meals with my mom at this place. Food was good though as good as institutionalized food can be. The residents were super happy there, so the meals and attention, etc., couldn't have been that bad, or else they would not be happy.

My mom needs extra care because of her condition and the nurses at Hebrew Home are very attentive and focused on her needs, round the clock, to make sure that she is well taken care of. She's not treated like a number she is treated as a person. They are very good.

Mom's been there for about three weeks now. The whole family chose the place because it was very highly recommended for a physical therapy and I believe mom was treated well. I guess more menu options would be nice, although I don't know if that's even an option because it's a Kosher facility. But I would recommend this facility to others.

Right at this moment my mom has improved much more quickly than we thought. I was happy about that. She has been to Hebrew Home for about 3 weeks. They all have different levels of care. Our family chose it from the option that's available. We like best about them is the fact that it was highly recommended for physical therapy. She was treated well and she's very happy during her stay in the facility. I will definitely recommend this facility to others.

Overall I am satisfied with the care I received at the Hebrew Home. The food was significantly better than the hospital I was discharged from. The staff encourages group dining to foster a sense of community. There are daily activities that I was allowed to attend. There are also many volunteers that come by to help with the activities or simply visit with the residents. I had my own room. It was quiet and well furnished, almost like a hotel room. The bathrooms were, of course, accessible.Each day I had a daily session of physical therapy and occupational therapy. The therapists were friendly, and the equipment was plentiful and not in bad condition. I would also be checked by a doctor daily to monitor my general health and the nurses tended to my surgical site (drainage, bandages, etc.)Visitors are allowed at any time, and the process is handled by a front desk on the ground floor. The residents live on the 2nd floor and above.

I found this faculty to be a terrible place. The building and its rooms were in disrepair and unclean. The staff at the faculty were unkind and appeared unwilling to aide the patients calling for them.I witnessed one patient asking a caregiver for her daily medication. She was ignored and so she asked once again for her medication. After a third request, the caregiver turned to the elderly patient and told her to, "Shut the ---- up!" and then left the room.Overall, I would hope no one I know ever ends up living in this place. The patients are so very poorly taken care of and clearly, for the most part, are very unhappy.

After working a Summer volunteering at the Hebrew Home, I left utterly disgusted. After being barely trained by a surly and miserable head of volunteers, I was assigned to the fourth floor. Not one day into the job, I was stunned by the absolute inefficiency. It was infuriating to have to prepare the consistently requested iced tea at lunch cup by cup, as opposed to just making a pitcher, and being given conflicting duties. What really disturbed me though, was how cruel, and uncaring the nurses are. The nurses, many of whom could barely speak English, were horrible to the patients, or, as the volunteers came to view them, the inmates. I remember them teasing one poor woman who was confused, and convinced they had stolen her car keys. Oftentimes, residents were left sitting in their own waste, no one caring to aid them. The one thing I can say in the Hebrew Home's defense is that the rooms were spacious and well appointed, and accommodations were made for special cases, such as a traditional futon being provided to an elderly Japanese couple. I would not recommend this nightmare of an establishment to anyone.

While visiting my family member at this facility, we experienced that the staff were nice to us and very accommodating. But that not the case for my family member who was there. He was neglected to some extend where ended up have bed sores, he leg was fractured because he wanted to go the bathroom but no one came to assist him. There were times when his physical therapy classes were not handled properly or he was not taken to either. The facility was kept very clean, I would recommend them for that and meals were served on time as well. the bed linens were changed regularly as well. But there were times when we visited our family member his room would give a certain smell, that was hard to ignore and be able to stay in the room at the same time.The assistance would sometimes compliant about other living who were living there which was very offensive to me personally.overall, I would not recommend this facility to any other family.

My grandmother had severe Alzheimers Disease and she spent the last few months of her life here. The nurses and doctors took good care of her and she passed away here eventually. We have a very large family ( she had 40 grandshildren) and the entire family was welcome to be with her there at the final moment. The nurses brought us all chairs and attended to our every need. They never complained about the crowd and seemed to be making the best of what could be a a sad work environment. I was very impressed with this facility and highly recommend it.

In the Summer of 2010, I volunteered for two months at the Hebrew Home in Rockville Maryland, and found the experience to be abysmal. Nurses were unqualified, and instructed me to preform tasks I was not trained for, such as disconnecting residents from oxygen tanks. Supervision was poor, and many patients were found wandering unattended. Nurses were dismissive and cruel to patients, taunting them when they became confused and emotional. Living quarters were cramped and utilitarian, and offered little privacy. Food was mediocre, clearly not providing adequate nutrition, and lacking flavor and variety. One highlight was physical therapy, but even there, negligence, and a general lack of understanding of patients problems prevailed. Overall, I was disgusted with the conditions presented.
