I am not sure from a patient stand point. I worked there for a while as a CNA...I do know that they are ALWAYS under staffed and it is worse than other nursing homes I have worked in! When nursing homes are understaffed the residents get less care and are often borderline neglected! As pitiful as that is, it is the truth. The admissions people are wonderful, unfortunately, once your loved one is there, the admissions people dont even see them. Everyone I worked with-most of them- were fabulous, just overworked and underpaid. The rehab department is okay, but if your loved one is completely staff dependent, I would try other places where they can keep enough CNA's to make it as pleasurable as possible! Hope this helps

I have only heard positive things from famillies of patients. They are understaffed but seem to truly care about their clients.

My relative is "staff dependent" right now. Does anyone have any recommendations of nursing facilities with a good rehab department?

Lakeside in Lake City is very good. My Mother was there and we had no complaints.

St. Elizabeth's has a dope head nursing working night shift. Her license is on probation from it. She's pretty open about her drug use

I have a relative that works there and it is one of the best Nursing Homes in NEA. What nursing home is not understaffed? CNA's are very underpaid.

My Grandmother was there for six months. The place was clean, and the people were very nice.
But they were understaffed, My mother and I live here so we were able to go up several times a day and I think that helps, we stayed on top of things and I think if they know someone is gonna be by they will make sure everything is done.
My biggest complaint was the food it was horrible.
We took food up to my grandmother almost every night.

That's true about the understaffed comment. I don't know how much the community knows, but there is a resident to staff ratio. It's pretty low to begin with. Here's what I found on this web site

http://www.aanhr.org/

Arkansas

SUFFICIENT STAFF: No requirement.

LICENSED STAFF (RN, LPN/LVN)-

1 DON RN Full Time normally work on day shift; if DON has other institutional responsibilities in addition to written job description, then add 1 more RN as Assistant DON to equal one FTE of DON on duty.

1 RN or LPN Charge Nurse for each shift.

1-70 residents DON may be Charge Nurse
In multi-story homes, each floor should be staffed as a individual unit

DIRECT CARE STAFF

Effective 10/1/2003-- Day Shift: 1 licensed nurse per 40 residents; 1 direct-care staff (licensed or certified nursing staff) per 6 residents

Evening Shift: 1 licensed nurse per 40 residents; 1 direct-care staff (licensed or certified nursing staff) per 9 residents

Night Shift: 1 licensed nurse per 80 residents; 1 direct care staff (licensed or certified nursing staff) per 14 residents

That's the state regulations that I could find. But I've worked as a CNA on night shift, taking care of 30 residents on my own on nights. I've also worked as a LPN in a nursing home on Evening shift (2nd) taking care of 60 residents.

Just ask when you check out ANY nursing home, what their ratios are that they keep.

I have worked there and a couple of other ones in town here. This one was the worse. Craighead was the best! And I totally agree...CNA's are underpaid. But at other places they make about 1-2 dollars more an hour than at St Elizabeths

So are you saying that because they paid You more that made it a better nursing home? I believe the money has nothing to do with how the patient care and the facilities compares to other nursing homes.
Luckily my relative that works there is back in school because CNA's are not very well paid for the care they have to provide to the patients.
She loves what she does and her patients, but unfortunatly does not make enough money to provide for her family. I think all the nurses that make such good money should be wiping butts instead of the CNA's!!!

Usually the ones that are there for the money do bounce from nursing home to nursing home. You'll see it often

Nope...not what I said at all. I am saying if they paid a little better they may beable to keep more help. What didn't make it a good nursing home was the fact they didn't have organized activites like other homes, the residents spent majority of the day in the dining room waiting on something to happen, the nurses I worked with spent more time on their cell phone and eating than bringing them the meds they needed...I could go on. And I LOVED my job as a CNA...I loved my residents. However, when I started back in school I had to quit. St E's is a nice facility and their rehab dept is pretty good. Pt is great, but the LTC part of it, isnt as good as others in town

Thanks for this! It is really helpful! There would be times I would have 32 residents and I barely had time to dry them! And of course the nurse would be mad if she had to help! That is if she ever helped!

Boy do I understand that one! I started in a nursing home as a CNA. I've since gone to nursing school and got my LPN. I'm not ashamed to help do anything. More people need to realize it takes a TEAM to get the job done and take care of those people! I've worked with many nurses that won't do crap to help, and I REFUSE to be one of them
