It sucks. I've worked there. They are bad to their employees. Nurse aides can be a pain some are good though. The only good ones there are some of the 7p-7a nurses, housekeeping, maintenance, kitchen, reception. Nightshift is ok, day shift is ok except for the blond one.

i worked there at one time. i hated it. the patients are ignored or mistreated. one night a pt fell out of bed into the floor and broke his nose. noone had checked on him all night, we found him like that the next morning and had to call an ambulance. there was blood everywhere. they really are apathetic there.

These people have an impossible job to do. Everyone wants their mommies and daddies to have the very best care possible but no one wants to pay them for it. The government has cut their payments to the bare bones but still expect them to provide four star hotel care. If you think it is easy, you try to take care of an invalid family member at home and see how well you do. Grayson Manor is not perfect, no nursing home is, but they are doing the best they can. But, in typical Grayson County fashion, let's tear it down, condemn them, criticize them, and write gutless posts on the internet. It takes special people to work at a nursing home so cut them some slack

oh, so since they dont get paid what they want, and times are hard for them, then its ok for them to neglect and mistreat patients? whatever! the majority of the people i saw working there weren't "doing the best they can". they'd laugh at patients for soiling themselves, or talk to them like they were idiots. the people in charge wouldnt even tell us aides what patients had contagious, dangerous diseases that were easily passed thru bodily fluids! that place is a mess and a disgrace. it is VERY hard work, but that doesnt give anyone the excuse for mistreating people that deserve dignity.

To tell the truth Grayson Manor is not the best place in the world. I work here on Night shift as a receptionist but I know its not the best. As you said GM Fan they are hard workers. I would dare anyone to do half of the work many of these people do. The aides are hard workers, and then there are some that don't care as noooooo said. I've seen people be nasty to the residents and I've got after people for being nasty to the residents. The truth is that the people need better care, the charge people need to be there more and also be easier on some of their hard workers they assign the blame to. They need to let the workers know what a resident has so they know how to protect themselves. It's not perfect, its far from that. No one has the right to mistreat these residents, yet some of the main people do it. You can be like me and challenge these people at times, they'll hate you for it. They'll write you up for telling the truth, or to avoid there own blame. I do it for the residents though. The only way to fix grayson manor is to clean house of those people noooooo talked about. Grayson Manor should work to fix itself. Provide better care.

All I simply did was acknowledge the good and the bad here at Grayson Manor. It's not all bad.

My grandmother was there for about 10 days! Wow, she was going downhill fast! The lack of care is heartbreaking! When our family tried to addresse the issues with administration we were told 'If your grandmother had better care where she was before here, then maybe you should just come and get her and take her back!" Oh, the lady was so hateful and rude! She was NOT at all interested in looking into what was going on, and adressing the problems. Her stance was this is the level of care we offer and if its not good enough, then take your granmother elswhere! I believe issues such as finding breakfast food (at night) and her perscribed medication in her sheets under her, is unacceptable! Medication ESPECIALLY should be handled with care, Nobody should walk away until they are sure it has been taken as perscribed! It saddens me that Grayson Manor Residents dont recieve the care that they deserve.... Hope its gotten better, in the last couple years, b/c with that level of care, i would opt making a further drive out of county to another facility where i could sleep at night w/o worrying about my loved one! Its sooo sad, if you have a loved one, visit and check on them as much as POSSIBLE! Our Parents and Grandparents deserve and ARE ENTITLED to better care!!!

first off its the patients privacy that allows nurses not to tell you wether they have a dangerous disease or not and ive never seen anyone make fun of pt for soiling themselves. maybe in reality you are the one who talked to them like idiots and laughed at them.

aides should gloves up and protect themselves whether or not the person has a disease. if you dont and you catch something it is your own fault. and to the ones that think these residents needs better care why dont you take care of them at your home i bet you wouldnt even consider it or if you did you would have them back at gm in a mater of days because you wouldnt want to do the jobs that the aides do or they wouldnt be there in the first place.

You can not tell me that this is the standard at any nusing home, stating if you dont like the care try it at home, My Grandmother was cared for at home for a long while, Thank You. She was also at Edmonson County Health care, and received the BEST of care! So, just b/c it is hard work does NOT mean, the patients level of care should suffer. Grayson Manor can do better, and SHOULD! Edmonson Health Care was wonderful to my Grandmother, and they genuinly Care, I am THANKFUL for that, and have a great appreciation for the nursing homes that hold themselves at a higher standard.

i did wear gloves, but that doesn't alway protect you. you never know what could happen. i NEVER mocked anyone, i actually got in trouble for spending too much time with the patients and trying to befriend them. thats what so many of them desperately need, since their families abandon them. and yes, there were aides that laughed at them for soiling themselves, amongst other things.

I think before anyone bad mouths Grayson Manor they need to try working there first. It is a good place. It is a hard job and I know they would like to give every resident there a personal aid to provide care and only them but that is impossiable. "Loving and caring enviroment" is the quote on the name tags and I agree. I try to be loving and caring. Sometimes there are familys that bring their "Loved ones" in and just leave them never come back and visit them they are the one I take under my wing and show more love for because they have no one.But sometimes there is bad things happen but We All Are Only Human. We make mistakes. Grayson Manor is a good place, and it is loving and caring if you ask some of the residents if they like it there I would almost bet theat they say it was better than the last place that they was at.

Sounds to me like you were just a crappy aid who got fired and is now bitter about it. The residents need to be taken care of first and foremost so while your making small talk maybe your patient down hall needs your help. You have to do your job and make sure everyone is clean and turned properly. I have never seen anyone treat a resident the way you described and if had i would have reported it. What that didn't occur to you?? That letting something like that happen is just as bad as doing it. If you want to befriend them there are no rules about visiting on your own time. You are taught about ppe when you start maybe you should have paid attention.
