Nursing Home Reviews for Mountain Trace Nursing Center

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother has been dealing with severe diabetes, possible congestive heart failure, and chronic-obstructive pulmonary disease for over the past five years. She has been recently admitted on a lengthy but considerable short-term basis to Mountain Trace. She has been needing nursing home care due to a tracheotomy she had received for bronchial-related issues and is slated to come home at a later date. The overall care is probably good, but there seems to be little in the way of physician communication. In trying to find out what is going on in terms of health, it can be hard to finally get the time to meet with the physician. Secondly, the place itself seems to lack any real doctors but rather is run by mostly nursing staff. That is fine in some cases, but for someone like my mother, a doctor peering in to see what is going on bronchially would probable be more effective. Nurses also don't seem to be adequately trained for many measures, including dealing with tracheotomies. Only one or two nurses had something of an understand, while a few told me she had to go and find someone who understands such things. It seems to harbor an atmosphere typical of many nursing homes that health concerns are not adequately addressed. I do believe the health issues they do address are better than the kind of care my mother would be receiving at home, though, since I am not equipped to handle a lot of this stuff.
