Erwin Health Care is the worse nursing home in this area. There is black mold in all the shower rooms. The nurses don't do their job they let people sit and lay in urine all day and that’s why it smells so bad. They also have housekeepers do one on one patient care like taking them to smoke, helping in and out of bed. It is run by a family of idiots that know how to work together to cover up all the bad issues. They also have someone that warns them when they know the state is coming in there so they doctor up the place till they are gone. I suggest NEVER putting a love one in that place. Margaret Wilson the director will tell you what you want to hear and then it will NEVER be done the way it is told. That place needs to be shut down. I am now working with a lawyer’s office to have issues looked into.

Did Erwin Health Care file papers to have the lawsuit dismissed? I hope it is not dismissed if things are as bad as they say!

As a nurse who once worked at Erwin Healthcare Center, I can say I was appalled by the conditions residents lived in. Often times patients are overlooked, not fed, and left in their own feces and urine for prolonged times. Health conditions that need to be monitored are NOT. Needless to say the spread of MRSA is outrageous. Infection control is lacking at Erwin Health Care!
Hence, why I QUIT. I could not watch all of the neglience on part of fellow nurses and management unfold. I would have to rate Erwin Health Care Center as a one of the worst nursing homes in Northeast Tennessee.

I can say with a fact that a good portion of Nurses at EHCC are high on the patient's narcotics. Something truly needs to be done about this!

my mom was confined there for about 13 months by the State Adult Protective Service. this all happened because a Dr.at a large hospital gave her a DRUG she is very allergic to, that was clearly on her allergy chart.over 3 months ago she was transferred somewhere and the State won't tell me where she is.also they said I am not allowed to see her because I had been disruptive with the residents.the only resident that was disruptive was my mom crying and begging me to take her home as I was leaving.all I was allowed to see her for was 2 hour a week. she just wants her Freedom back. she is a sweet innocent Christian lady that has never been mean or hurt anyone in her life.I hve tried everything I legally could but no Lawyer would go up against the Billion dollar hospital group that caused this whole chain of events to happen. it is all so unfair. please Pray that some how my mom will be able to get her FREEDOM back. she was doing Great 4 days before she went to the ER with high sugar. we were at the J.C.Mall having dinner and I made a video and put it on you tube.Mary Ruth Smith having dinner. the next day after he went to the ER she was given the DRUG she is very allergic to.I Pray that nothing like this ever happens to you or anyone else you love, especially if it was your mom who has always been your best friend. sadly I think that a lot of things like this is going on to other elderly people behind closed doors.

There is a lot that goes on at EHC that people don't see except the people who work there and once they bring it to the attention of someone then they get fired. What is funny to me the people who run that place confess they are christians, how in the world can they stand before God when he knows what they have let happen in that place. There is MOLD in the shower rooms they spray chemicals throughout the NH that is suppost to kill the odors because they are to lazy to clean up the patients. They do let them sit in their own urine and feces been seen first hand.I don't understand how that place can stay open another day. But like I said in another comment before I have spoken with a lawyers office and they are going to be getting all of our information to go with a couple of other lawsuites they are in and I cannot wait to see their faces when WE walk in as witnesses, we know enough to get them in LOTS of trouble and guess what it isn't hear say it is all witnessed by us. I say lets all get together and get a lot more people and protest the ERWIN HEALTH CARE 100 Stalling Rd. Erwin...

my mom is Mary Ruth Smith. she was confined there for 13 months. to put it mildly, it was the worst 13 months of my life, including a lot of times in my life that I would have been hungry, until I would go to the person that would never let me go hungry,which was my mom, my BEST FRIEND.she has NEVER been mean to or hurt me or anyone else in her life.I am looking for a Lawyer. if anyone wants to help her or knows the story please email me at reledford@gmail.com. she was transferred and I don't even know where my mom is now. also they said I am not allowed to see her again, because I had been disruptive.the most disruptive thing was when I had to leave after my 2 hours a week and my mom would cry in pain(with a dislocated shoulder) for me to please let her go home. my HEART has never been so broken. lets put our notes together and get Justice for what they did to her and other PATIENTS.she lost everything she owned including her FREEDOM. all she wants to do is get her FREEDOM back and come home.
thanks 4 being HONEST

My mom was in Ivy Hall at one time and it is an old facility but they are clean and so good to the patients. My mom received excellent care.
