Orleans County should not be running a nursing home. It should be sold and let a private company run it like the nursing home in Medina.

Sell it, all it is about is trying to save union jobs and cadillac benefits.

They sell it to a private corporation the medicaid users go to another county nursing home, the underfunded mandate of Medicaid you people don't understand now goes to another county similar to College tuition we pay out to colleges for in county students. At least funds keep employees here locally

That's scare tactics and bull crap. Nursing home stays. employees stay if they want just under different house rules. The people stay. stop telling tales about the nursing home for political gain.

You people on here think you know who everyone is. I'm the person who sits at the bar or the the local diner that you never notice or talk to while you run your big important mouths. I may be a man i may be a woman but junk is not what i collect and i am very good at sorting out the crap that is keeping Orleans County the poorest. Besides you think that people dont talk? That only a few know whats going on? keep thinking that way. insignificant

Do not sell The Nursing Home!! As an employee who has invested 20 year into the county, let me tell you, we are not justing fighting to keep it for our jobs and benefits. If you know anything at all it's that us working class people get 0 benefits. Bare minimum health insurance. If any at all. We have had no raises in pay for the pay 2 years as the "fat cats" vote in their own raises....way to go legislators. How much of the county money did you spend sending out pictures (of yourselves) at christmas? Like any one enjoyed that!!! Fact is care will suffer for the residents at the nursing home. I can honestly say that 90 percent of us workers are there because they residents are our family. Stop to think if it was you or your loved one being mistreated, and uncared for.

The county, nor any government entity, should be involved with providing any service that is regularly provided by private companies and/or corporations. The county should pay attention to only public safety, highways/water/sewer (when necessary), managing public records, and, sadly, welfare and what goes with it.

The save the nursing home nonsense is simply a Union ploy to keep their membership. The county should be spending its money elsewhere.

This disgusts me if they sell the nursing home . Don't any of you people care about the residents living there ? That Is their home ! They already been taken out of their own home once and placed there ! Shame on our county for not wanting to care for the elderly ! You all too will be in their shoes some day !! Karma !!
