My husband's mother was in there for nearly a year last year, over what was just supposed to be a broke hip and ankle. She kept getting sick, they'd send her to the hospital and she'd get better, put her back in NHC, and she'd get sick again.

She ended up with pneumonia in Dec. and she passed on in Jan. of this year.

. The same thing happened to my family member. One week before she was to come home she caught pneumonia and died. The staff Dr needs his license pulled. He is a real quack.

Did anyone find out the name of the red headed bitch over 3rd floor? She is the root of all evil that goes on there. Someone else told me the lady over her was not trust worthy either. It is hard to find someone you can trust anymore.

Google it. you will see they almost lost their license a couple years ago because of a male CNA molesting the residents. Charlotte Wilson lost her LNHA licenses over it because she didn't do anything after it was reported. Look her up also on VDH DHP web site.

I have personally experienced the treatment with NHC on the 2nd and 3rd floor staff. Please dont get me wrong, some of their CNAs and Nursing staff are great but not all!! On 2nd floor most of their cnas are a joke and care nothing about anyone but themselves and as for 3rd floor cnas much worse!! I have witnessed personally them tell patients that they cannot have more to eat because they have ate enough!!! WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TO TELL THESE PEOPLE THEY CANT EAT BECAUSE THEY FEED YOU!!! The staff are to busy backstabbing each other and taking their smoke breaks then to actually care about their patients!!!

I really wish that those of you that are making these nasty comments had to come work in long term care for just one day and see the crap we put up with. We go in and pull twelve hour shifts and usually have 1 nurse to 30 patients and 1 cna to 10 patients. the reason for this being the recently instated medicare cuts. we try very hard to care for our patients, and are any of us perfect? no not by any means. But we bend over backwards to help not only patients but family members. And the lady on third floor that keeps getting dogged is a very dear woman and friend of mine and I would walk through the fires of hell with her. She carries the weight of the world on her shoulders at work and at home but none of you all would know that except for Ken. She has to be stern at times because people don't want to listen when she's telling them the truth. NHC has under gone some massive changes here lately in the staff and administration and has put quite a bit of stress on everyone. But that doesn't stop us from caring for the people that can't care for themselves.

I seriously cant believe what people are saying about the redheaded nurse. I have known her for 10 plus years, and have NEVER heard her be disrespectful to anyone, especially a patient. Maybe, if a CNA isnt doing their job,then she very well may have something to say, but it is NEVER inappropriate. She happens to be one of the true Nurses that I have ever met. Yes, I am a CNA, and I would LOVE to work under this red headed nurse again. Funny, I happen to know that they do perform background checks. NHC USE to be the best facility in Bristol. If Charlotte, the Admin, and Anne, DON, had not been subject to the situation that they had NO idea about, it would still be the best facility in Bristol.

They just added fuel to the fire. Health care there sucks. They are out for the all mighty dollar and don't give a crap about the patients. That Dr needs to be fired.

Lets see if we can astablish this NHC has a five star rating! State Survey was there last week and they had 3 tiny defficiency's! This is the only ***** star facility in the TRICITIES area!!!! Guess again get the facts! As for the Red head on 3rd floor.....I agree with her son. She demands the best and only the best wil do. If that makes her a hag.......then so be it! Best ole hag you or any other person on TOPIX will meet!

THEY MAY HAVE A FIVE STAR RATING ON CLEANLINESS, BUT HEALTHCARE SUCKS. THEY HIDE BEHIND A IRON CURTAIN WITH THE BEAUTIFUL CLEAN BUILDING BECAUSE THEIR STAFF IS THE MOST UNCARING, UNCONCERNED THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN. VERY POOR HEALTHCARE AND A RIDICULOUS DR ON STAFF

I have an opinion on NHC.... I am a former employee of NHC, working as a CNA and getting my CNA training from there. Also, my mom works there and has since I started school, and Im 29. If I had it my way, I would still work there, but I was very irresponsible with my life at the time so I got fired. BUT... NHC is a wonderful facility! Ive also worked at the Cambridge House and Bristol Nursing Home, and let me tell you they are nasty, understaffed, they cut corners and cover their tracks. The overall patient care is poor. NHC is clean, organized and the patients (or residents as they call them) are VERY WELL taken care of! Ive actually been a CNA for 12 years and know everthing their is to know about it, yet if I had to, I would put my memaw or my mom, any family member in there. If something was to happen to me, thats where I would want be. NHC is a great place. Yeah, you may find a bad apple somewhere, but where dont you? And as of the "Red Head" that you were talking shit about, her name is Sharon and she is a great nurse and a wonderful person! SO.. to the one asking whether or not to put your family there, I say absolutely! And the one talking crap.. what happened? Did you get fired? I did too, but it was my own damn fault!!

Beautiful clean building, healthcare sucks!!!!!! You are 29 and been a CNA for 12 years.....BS!!!! I pray the doors on that place shut. From what I hear there is about 20 lawsuits against them as I speak. RUN from the place, it is a nightmare.

The building is very clean. I was suprised when I went in there. However I also seen people falling and stuff. I know these are elderly people, but when a bed alarm goes off cause some one that shouldnt be gettin out of bed is getting up, shouldnt they go in vestigate? They do not pay attention to the bed alarms that go off.

My great aunt was there 2 months after breaking her hip, every time we went she was soaked lying in her own urine, feces ect.. when we ask the nurse over her floor we were told she was just bathed clean and comfy, SHE HAD FECES DRIED ON HER so if thats what they or you consider clean and comfy then by all means subject your family member to that kind of living. THEIR SO SORRY IT SHOULLD BE CONSIDERED ABUSE OF THE ELDERLY, ALSO They take everything from the patients [ home, any money they receive from government in exchange for a bed and three pathetic meals a day. by no means are the treated with dignity or respect that they deserve.
