Carla, your a wonderful nurse, you always have been. Out of everyone in that entire facility, you were the one who cared the most! Let these people talk bad, they will have to face their maker one day, and I hope they can explain why they lied and didn't take care of and stand up for the elderly. You did the best you could, and I commend you for that. These people all loved you and talked great about you up to the day that you ADMITTED to taking the pictures, at a residents request. He ASKED you to do this. You had the most seniority out of all the floor nurses, the one who always fixed all the errors. They depended on you to come in on your days off to do the paperwork they were all too lazy to touch. That paperwork being the medication administration records. They had you do it because you were so thorough. Those of us that know the truth will always look up to you for being such an amazing and strong woman, and for those that are slamming, to hell with them. Karma to all those that are a part of this character assassination.
"jen" you have alot of room 2 get on here and talk! when you yourself verbally abused the residents and got in the residents faces all the time. ya you quit before you got fired.but i do think you turned in one of the cnas 4 abuse? and thats right karma is a b**** and yours will come around too!

enough is enough why get the residents involved. you people ought to be ashamed of the things you are doing. Carla why do you still work here if it is so bad. Becky if it is so bad why did you not take your mother out of here? This nursing home is the residents home. The mold is gone and residents rooms are all clean. You people need to let it go. Did you ever think that these residents smoke and their cough could be from that. This is not a prison and we do not make the residents stay here but the staff here are very caring. The facility did what they were suppose to and corrected the problem. All you ex employees worry about yourself and not the residents because they are very well taken care of.
My mother lived their because my sister lived across the street and i around the corner. As a place to live she liked it . We just didnt care for what all went on their. Iam sure once they fire you youll feel different about the place. Believe me its just a matter of time and youll be gone to. You know yourself how things are run their so how can you say these people are being taken care of like they should be. Maybe your like a lot of them their and dont have a heart or feelings about these poor people.

You current employees of galesburg terrace...grow up...if your family member was residing in there you would have concern too...only difference is that you dont...caring nurses who are doing there job did... so the problem was addressed and your employer had to step up to the plate and fix it..if it is fixed...if your family member was in that situation wouldnt you want something done? I would. Those of you throwing stones should remember that the ones you are throwing stones at are the same ones that you told some of your all need to remember that everyone has skeletons and secrets and some actually have the documentation to prove it...falsifications...recharti before you make your next post think about it cause words are words...documentation...even more damaging...and as for Carla... you are a good nurse and deserve better..if it wasnt for you some of the residents wouldnt have gotten the medical attention they deserved...keep your chin up you did the right stood up for those who couldnt do it themselves...way to go

Well if Carla is such a good nurse lets see if she comes this weekend to work to take care of her residents she cares so much for or be a ncns! Yep Jeni was gonna get fired for verbally abusing resident and she turned another one of her friend that shes having meeting with for verbal abuse also. Carla came to work most days late- EVERYDAY she said she was going to quit and had the worse attitude! Only reason she is doing all this is cuz she got suspended about a month ago and now she wants to payback! If so bad why did she bring her new grandbaby in there? The mold issue- soon as it was discovered was treated- state was there when they were cleaning it up! They went ahead and did each residents room just to make sure. Mold issue is old news. Each one talking shit is ex-employee? Why is that? We all know Nursing jobs and CNA jobs are not that hard to find, so if we felt like if the issue was not being taking care dont you think we would leave? To the ones who are gathering do remember there are HIPAA laws- hope u not using residents names!!! I also wish management would put a statement out to let everyone know whats going on.

Gem Healthcare used to own Camelot Terrace in Streator, Illinois.(which is now has NEW ownership and NEW name and a real repaired and renovated building that is healthy to live in, thank God) Massively leaking roof and mold everywhere in the affected area. Residents and employees alike spent months and months being sick. Now another of his facilitities? He does not care about your family members. Get them out of there now!

My one and only comment is this: The same owner of this facility also owned Camelot Terrace at one point, until they found mold through out c-wing...There will never be the correct fix, its always what will be the cheapest to his wallet!!!! Im not some ex-employee just someone that was in that facility before and that has been there since ownership changed..The difference is remarkable..But while he owned it people were living in the hallway that was infested in mold while he always said that there was nothing to worry about..Residents and staff were getting sick from being there!!
