I didn't know anything about it, I work for a different company in the London / Corbin area. Usually it would have to be something rather bad for Frankfort to come and close you down.

I used to work there several years ago, and I agree with that. I wonder why is it that they know exactly when the state is coming in and whatnot? I know Matt House happens to be tight with both the governor and lieutenant governor, and also is on the boards of several different companies in the area too, including St. Joseph's of London.

All I have to say is this: If Laurel Springs is getting closed down, they should not be the only company shut down. That company cares more about the employees and the individuals than any other company in the area.

Frankly, it makes me wonder what "big dog" payed to get them shut down. Maybe someone wants to buy the property. If you have a huge number of individuals and cater to nursing home patients, you do not care about the individuals, you care about the money.

I dont think someone paid to have them closed. I dont work at Laurel Springs and never have so I dont know what has occurred there but having worked in the field for a long time I do know that Laurel springs has not had a good reputation. The reputation has been that they have some very difficult individual's to care for and that some of the staff are very "rough" with them. But again I dont know and could be completely wrong.

It wouldnt surprise me in the least bit that there may be rumors that they are shutting down.. That place doesnt care about the people they service or the employees... I along with several of my friends have worked there and its a complete and udder joke. The people that work there are more about spredding rumors and aggrevating the people that they are "supposed" to take care of.. They are also more "MR" than the people as well. If they did get shut down it probably is for abuse and working there made me not ever want to do it again. Who ever says that they arent the only one that should be under investigation..I totally agree with you there should be more investigated. I wouldnt treat a dying dog that I didnt like the way that some of the employees treat those guys..I'm sorry but they are there for a reason and yea some of them are a little hard to deal with but dont work there if you cant take it. The ED that they have there wants to hem all the employees that she doesnt like up in "so called" abuse charges and the one that are really responsible dont get anything at all. They should be shut down for alot more reasons but whatever good ridince to those people!!!

You all can laugh and say what you want about Carla Reed and how you think it is funny that the place is being shut down but whats not so funny is them individuals having to leave there home and get shipped off to institutions. And as for any ex-employee on here talking crazy. Laurel srpings is a great place to work, and we have no problem getting rid of lazy, sorry, nasty staff who are just there for a pay check, or anyone who tries to bully our guys around just because they are mr so I garuntee you that any of you staff on here trashing laurel springs employees you got fired for one of the catagories above. I have worked there for several years and could care less who's talking about who and whos doing who I am there for those guys and them only so before you sit back and laugh at this whole thing just take a minute to think about who is going to suffer in the end and it's going to be the individuals. I just pray that where ever they have to go that they will be well taken care of.

Wrong you are ....the individuals are not difficult..u want difficult ? go to IO.....you would be better off working in a nursing home..at least the pay would be better......Rough with them???wrong again...go to IO where the individuals are made to participate in activities they dont want to do..trips they are FORCED to take.....in this field you learn one thing first...the rights these individuals have and that you are to repect...the same rights all americans have..to be treated equal and fairly..dispite the differences...Carla Reed has more class taking a dump than Ernie House and his CRONIES could ever buy....

I was hired as their program director five weeks ago. I have worked for the state in APS and different Nursing Homes and I can tell you that no one was abused there. They are some of the hardest workers and caring employees I have ever seen. They had a problem with the state wanting this or that and tried their best to do what was asked of them with no mercy from the state workers. they had really difficult individiuals in their program who no one else would take and made a difference in their lives. I guess they cared too much, huh?

janice sucks!
as the 'ed' she couldnt handle what needed to be done to run the company ...
oh and fyi, the employees that get on here and get all pissy and defend LS makes it look all that much more suspicious, i know for a fact that one employee was fired for abusing an individual, and they had rehired atleast 2 suspected for abuse ... now do you still wanna say there was NO abusers
hah, yea right.
sucks to be all ya fat a.. people
