I have heard there are a couple dayshift nurses that need attitude adjustments or fired and that third shift aids are lazy and call in alot. I'm actually positive about these things, I know people that work there. If it were me, I would look elsewhere

Its the administrater & nursing assitants that are the real problem.They all need proper training
to start with.The other staff does the best they can and really care for the patients there.A relative of mine works there and says the adminitrater is a real A**. He has forced so many to quit just by the way he treats them every day.

the residents shouldn't pay the price cause the nursing assistants think they are treated badly or because the nurses want to be mean. if you don't like your job or can't do a good job - find another one. the residents deserve to be treated and cared for properly. I can't tell you how many times i have heard the ambulance called there for falls, medication errors, ect. this is addressed to everyone from the top to the bottom of the staffing - we care about the residents and so should you!!!!

As a nurse, I must say that there are very few long term care facilities that are able to provide the proper care for the residents who live there. Staffing is always an issue and generally speaking so is the pay. Those that want to be there out of their love of helping others try to pull the weight of several and eventually get burnt out. There are those who work merely to have a job. It's a sad situtaion for everyone involved. I personally would not put anyone in Sycamore Springs however, if it's convenient, please visit often and make sure that your loved on is getting cared for. Don't bring anything of value into the facility as it will more than likely be stolen. Make sure there are names on everything that your family member brings. If you see or hear something that isn't right or makes you question, ask someone! The Indiana Ombudsman is always available to handle any complaints you may have as well as the State Board of Health. Good luck to you!

WOW is about all I can say.. This place is headed down hill fast.. I am taking my mother out soon. This place will be under new ownership or closed before the year ends. I just can't believe it. I wish I had the money to buy it and start over. Anyone have any good suggestions on what to do?
heard it

It won't be closed and if it will be under new ownership don't look forward for any changes. Brookville healthcare is owned by the same company. Believe it!

Some nusing homes are better then others, what makes a big differnce honestly. How often family show up and visit and are involved. ITS hard too have someone in home like that you really can't trust any place anymore.

They walk around on pins and needles cause the administrater
walks around like a drill seargant barking orders and insults
at all under his command... and those who arent,He treats all that work for him & with him
verbally & mentally harsh and cruel...The top has to start with a positive and caring attitude toward employees or the resentment
and lack of care goes out the door,a nursing home is no place for that kind of behavior. HIRE A NEW ADMINITRATER! THATS A GOOD START!

If there are nurses there then why do they have to call an ambulance to deal with an IV?
