Not sure about nurses,but the building smells like urine as soon as u walk in.That's enough to turn me off of putting a family member there.It just screams "NASTY"and"GERM Y"!!!!

Wyndridge is not a bad place. My mom works there, and I love going there to visit with the patients. Most of the CNAs and nurses I have met there are nice, but of course you're going to have your grumps too.

First off its Wyndridge so get it right.. I work there its a great place we do all we can for the people we take care of. If you dont like the place stay out of it. How about you go talk about something you know about. You dont know how hard it is to take care of people. And if its such a bad place then why werent you taken care of your mother . So before you get on here talkin crap about people maybe you should look ar yourself....

If you want to see healthy people come in there and be bedridden within 3 months, or see little ole ladies crying because the workers stole thier quarters and shoes, Wyndridge is your place. Most of the CNA's are pilled up and hiding or gossipping with the nurses. I have seen old ladies and men crying because noone would answer thier light and they went to the bathroom on themselves. The first thing they do when they come in there for therapy is stick them in the bed and not let them up because the longer they are there, the more money they make. They mix medicine up about once a week there. The manager sits in the office all day and doesn't even know what happens and dont care. I have seen people have skin breakdown so bad that they have had to have surgery to close it up because they sit in urine and feces so long and went so long without being turned. If a patient turns thier light on, the CNA's act like its a big inconvenience and make them feel bad about turning thier light on for help. That about sums up Wyndridge. And I do know because I worked there and have had family in there.
yeaaaa

my mother worked there for 14 years and the highest they ever paid her was $8.50 an hour. laura gillette wanted to fire her because she requested time off for a family death and they approved it. but apparently laura wanted to be a bitch that day, so my mother quit and now works at Colinx. i used to go see mom at work and the people were pitiful. the CNA's that have been there and know what they're doing are ok. but when it comes to little teenagers who steal meds and money and do not respond to patient's lights, they're horrible. my mom had to work an entire wing with just one other person every day she was there. and she had to fix dumbass gossiping lil whore's mistakes all the time. its sad to see a man layin in bed with gangreen and bed sores to his bones because the other nurses wouldnt change his bedding and walk him. who wants to sit in their own piss for 5 hours and deficate on themselves without having any control? that place is a sorry example of a nursing home now adays. there are some good people still there, but at the same time there's plenty of dumbasses too

I worked for Wyndridge and it is a great place. The nurses are good there. The techs are good. I loved all my residents very much but people have to remember we have families at home to and sometimes we to get sick we can't help that. Techs try so hard to make sure there residents are taken care of that they forget to take care of themselves. There are problems every where you you go. If you are looking to put a family member in Wyndridge just know to check it out for yourself go there meet some of the people please don't judge it on what someone says. Having to put your family in a nursing home is very hard and heart breaking and the nurses and cna's understand and are there for you if you need to talk to someone and just need someone to listen. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT WITH YOUR OWN EYES AND TALK TO SOME OF THE PEOPLE THERE. God bless you through your hard time I hope you get the support you need.

Wow dnt talk unless u kno i take care of my residents and i kno the girls n guys i work with. me and several others go out of our own pocket to give our residents the little extra to make happy like weather its some good smelling lotion soap or shampoo or candy or what ever we do the best we can in a stressful place were death and sickness is all around. and if we are so mean to our residents then y do they tell us they love us and half the time thier family doesnt even come see them we are all they got. when one dies we cry when is real sick we worry we look at em as our second family. well the ppl i work w do anyways.

laura gillett and gary cochran are 2 of a kind. stupid! they had to kno someone to get the jobs because they never proved any intelligence while i was there. that place gets checked by the state all the time because people have so many complaints of neglect. if you ever put anyone in there, visit everyday. keep a close eye on them. just as many good cna's as bad. they should be a little more picky at their workers outer appearance tho. nose rings, tounge piercing, eyelid piercings and tatoos are not very proffessional, you know. lol that is funny!

Wyndridge gets checked by the state once a year just like every place. We have a great team there that love all the res. State was just there and we had the best survey in 20 years this year...
