Heard that that management has turned over since this and other incidents began making news several years ago. I saw disturbing things that gave me pause to question how well the facility operated. Hopefully the new management group is more compassionate about the residents well being. What is saddest is that poor management requires the state becoming involved before anything gets done.

Couldn't believe those ppl didnt get jail time but then ppl see them/us as being just worthless elderly ppl.

Takes one evil, criminal minded individual to even want to hurt or torment someone defenseless or anyone for that matter!

I heard the employees are treated like crap by the management, too.

Sounds about right.

They should change the name of the place, as they aint living up to it.

They should just name it what it really is...

They should call it..."Big building managed by lying, hard hearted, greedy, sadistic jerks."

That is what they should name the place, in my opinion.

Yes, the place is a blight on elderly care, as are most old folk homes. The thought of companies making money from the care of the frail and elderly is bad enough, but when they do it so horribly, it is a compounded sin. They bleed any and all benefits to the max without any real concern for the patient. Most of these outfits employ the less than outstanding (to put it mildly) CNA's and nurses. I know this from experience, and if you are not there nearly 24 hours a day, you will find your loved one being ignored, nurses swiping drugs, etc. Don't get me wrong, there are people working there with good intentions, but they are few and far between, and the daily routine will force them to find another job, if they have a heart or any chance to move away from it all. I'm not saying this just about ACV, but all of them. Let me die in my sleep at home!

WARNING... If you have loved ones in the facility, you need to have them removed asap!! They are abusive, nasty, and just down right evil!! There is no words to describe how I feel about this place right now. I hope the doors get boarded shut for good!!

Seems like the management is competing with itself, in an attempt to just see how dirty and rotten that they can be toward everyone they have any control over, patients, employees, etc.

They just seem to have a hunger and thirst for sadistic ventures, hardness, and cruelty.

They should change the name to "Appalachian anti-Christian village".

That would be a more appropriate name for the dump.

Apparently this place doesn't drug screening some of the ppl working there are known area crack heads whom have also just been arrested for drug charges n drinking. I wouldn't want them near any of my family or friends n especially taking care of anyone I know.

It's horrible, Granny. When profit from the elderly and frail becomes a business, then it's just a matter of time before care falls way to profit. It's a tragedy when you or your loved ones know your last wish would be to avoid being in a nursing home. Sometimes it can't be helped. Then it gets scary. I've experienced my loved ones being ignored and taken advantage of in these places and staff who just sit back and let it happen. I'm sure the workers there see things that appall them, but can't do much about it. If you are there as much as possible, the staff will put on a show for you, but as soon as you leave, it's back to business as usual. Second rate staff and insurance hungry management take charge. These vampires of humanity need to keep in mind that one day they may be in the same situation. Just let me croak in my own bed when my number is up! Then it's time for the funeral home ghouls to make a buck off my remains! That's another story, but still a matter of greed too.

I'm donating to UT research. I find it quite comforting to know that research on my old, tired, worn out body could possibly help some child or other sick person. Go to their website & read all the good things they are doing thru research. I received a brochure in the mail one day & after reading it I contacted them & got an application then went straight to the Funeral Home & got back all the money I had paid for my funeral & burial. Just think, what u pay for a funeral u could be saving toward care in your own home instead of having to go to a Nursing Home.(wink)

Google the University Of Tennessee Body Farm and you might reconsider.

It's a well known fact they must not drug test employees! Just recently saw 1 had been arrested for unlawful drug paraphernalia n drinking. Allison is a well known local crack abuser living at fox motel. To think we let people of this nature take care of our loved ones. She's probably stealing their meds while they suffer. I'd never place my loved 1 there.
