what can be done to correct all these problems and to ensure the health and safety of the residents. we also need help in providing a safe work place without threats from management.

Life Care Centers of America is a corporate machine. They are a perfect example of "Big Brother Watching". They rotate employees like underwear. And they pull from enough resources to keep the machine rolling. Google Colonial Hills nursing home and see what pops up. That Life Care owned facility was "shut down" for neglect. License pulled! They buy and sell nursing homes all the time. Its all business to Life Care. They could care less about the residents.

latest through the grapevine is that life care is getting closed. life care in crossville has a lot of the same problems as colonial hills. also heard the director of nursing days are numbered. ms. miss???? metcalfe has to have someone to blame for lack of care. she got rid of all supervison in the kitchen. she is also working on removal of all rn's looking for new people.

when you read about ellen metcalfe you can understand all the problems with the nursing home. why would a company place such a person in charge of the elderly? this is their last days and they only a hope of a few nice words, warmth and their choice of food. they like special things, cokes, candy, cake and pies. we as the public needs make sure this is available. there are some who really care that are employed but they can't show this if so they are out the door. one day this could be us in their shoes.

The place is a nightmare, they would rather have a person laying in their own feces,and make the only CNA on the floor pass dinner trays while the nurses sit on their f@t @sses and talk on the phone. they are pathetic, and sick, if this is what they think of caring for the precious grandmothers and grandfathers who reside there.

Ellen Metcalfe is a joke..A piece of crap that needs to be sent packing. She is a horrible Administrator who has NO nurse background. I have family in Life Care and there are lots of good Nurses and CNT's working their. It took several trips to the Er for falls before something was accually done to fix the problem. Their spending all this money to remodel, ripping up perfectly good tile to replace with carpet..Yes I said carpet in a Nursing Home. Come on people.. the money they are wasting there could pay for more Nursing and CNT help.. Get rid of some of the quote..unquote office people who just sit on their butts and do nothing. But the biggest problem is Ellen Metcalfe is she is a witch with a capital B.and needs to be sent packing andthen u have the jerk who was behind the closing at Colonial Hills working at Life Care and telling people what to do..give me a break.

That's the responsibility of the top shelf Director of Nursing they have there. What a joke. She has gotten away with more in the past year than all the other employees combined. But I'm sure she knows her days are numbered. She'll just be another notch on the belt of Life Care Centers of America.

If she is your only hope, you need to get your resume updated and start looking for another job. She'll throw you to the wolves just as fast as the administrator.
