Find me a nursing home that DOES care and write about that.

They are just cash cows sucking on the shriveled silver teats of society.

Get me a double-wide, a doctor who peeks in once in a while for his Medicare cut and a staff of $3/hr high-school dropouts and I'll start my chain of homes.

See y'all on the golf course.

Your lumping staff in with that statement and you could not be further than the truth..Most staff at these places do care or they wouldn't be there..

Now Dr.'s and owners...That is another story...

This is for sure not the only Nursing Home that does this kind of crap. Maybe that hepher will be in a nursing home one day and they will treat her the same way. It kills me. I had a family memeber in a nursing home and she was treated terrible. They would not change the beds and not bathe her and she had dimentia and its really bad when you have to use a permanent marker and mark the sheets to make sure they are doing their job which they were not. After several times of me taking off the sheets and throwing them in the hall and changing it myself and going to adminstration they got their act together as far as she was concerned anymore. They need a much stiffer penalty to these places that charge $5-6 thousand dollars a month and the nurses that make high dollar and treat these patients the way they do. Close this place down and send that BIT-- to get what she deserves!!!!!!!!!!

With what is charged per resident for care in any facility they should be able to provide much higher levels of care & pay those providing care appropriately-abuse of any type should never be tolerated

my mom was at this place, would not recommend to anyone. its an old building and it looks like it inside, dirty, not good care. the sharps container in her bathroom was never emptied the whole time she was there. we addressed the issue and it still was not emptied. out of all the nuses that we came in contact with there was only one that seemed to care. shut it down

They should be treated the same way as they do the patience throw her on a bed. My father in law was in a rest home. It's sad that people get treated the way they do while in suppose to be nurses hands. I was visiting my father in law one day and there was a patient in the hall talking to people and one of the nurses told her to get in her room before she helped her in it if that had of been my mother she was talking to she would have got up on the other side of the building. I told my father in laws nurse what she done and said she reported it. She said there has been a lot of complaints on that nurse they fired her. They are human to so don't mistreat them cause it could be them in that position someday. That nursing home should be shut down.

I can only hope and pray that I never have to be in a facility like this one. I have heard stories about people being injured, mistreated and or died because of the way they are taken care of there. Employees who have been fired are allowed to return later only to continue their same behaviors. I have personally witnessed employees raising their voices to, and being rude to patients and their families.

Smutt Butt is right. They have been in trouble many, many times. Look at it's history with the state just within the last few years. It is rated "much below average" at www.memberofthefamily.net and bad reports at www.medicare.gov . They always seem to get out of trouble though. At least they did anyway.

well i have work with stephaine and i have never seen her do anything to hurt or harm any resident so for you to be saying names sara70 is very dirty and grimme of you because you was not there to see so you shouldn't listen to what peolpe say. She always working doubles for them so they wouldn't be short she couldn't even spend time with her own family. And you wasn't talking shit when she was wiping your dads ass but now you want to talk shit.

And Forsyth may go after you for putting there name out there that was not good at all you need to really watch what you type and how you say it. Its really going to be hard for you to get a good Lawyer to take your case if you keep this up. You should have just laid low and now your in there news paper in Winston-Salem that was very wrong you should have really waited on a Lawyer.
