They get paid to keep the patients for a month then they dump them unless they find something else to charge for. The nurses that go out to other facilities to get you in the building will promise you anything to get you there. Physical therapy is the bare minimum not some vigorous program. The respiratory techs don't do routine blood gases or chest X-rays and forget all about spirometers . it's a money making scheme. at least at select your nurse to patient ratio is safe.How is this place in operation? They tell the families 2 patients per nurse, and they have five and six. Safe? I think not... I was told if I wanted to move my wife, it would be against Dr. Orders and medicare won't pay. Got me in, and when her nurse had 5 patients, was told that there was no way that I was told that. I just wanted to go back to KDMC. Please don't believe what you are told. They get paid on patients, not the truth

My mother was a patient at cornerstone, and that place is a nightmare. My mother was there because she was unable to get off the ventilator after surgery at KDMC. On one occasion, I went to visit her and she was not in her room. I went to nurse station and asked where she was, after 10 minutes of getting the run around I was told something had went wrong with her heart and she was at St. Mary's in ICU. When I went to St. Mary's I was told my mother was given an overdose of amioderone and her heart rate had dropped to 30. No wonder Cornerstone did not bother to call me and let me know what had happened.

The fact is the nurses at the Stone are worked like mules. 4 to 5 patients primary care is not safe. The patients are not getting good care. The nurses they are hiring are not in any way qualified to care for pstiens so criticalky ill. They are the biggest bunch of liars to ever represent the medical industry. Sub-standard doctors, sub-standard mgmt, sub-standard nurses.

Brilliant, direct, compassionate, informed, professional, realistic, detailed, well-crafted response. Brilliant. Excellent. Impressive response. It is a difficult transition much of the time to help patients' families expect the inevitable and deal with it. Impressive.

Cornerstone fires every good nurse they have. If you are a half way good nurse you either quit because of the below standard care or they fire you cm because you are a threat. They are all about the dollar signs. Bottom line. There is hardly a nurse working there that has 5 years of experience. They have a skeleton crew that cares for the patients and double the amount of staff that are making sure you have crossed your T's and dotted your I's. the nurses in administration don't have the experience to be in the positions they are in either.
