Did you here about that Josh Welch creep that always flirted with no only the workers but some of the patients. I heard he got fired to stop a sexual harrassment suit or something of that nature.

We wouldve if he had stayed, but guess we really weren't ready ourselves to leave our loved one in there, yet. Once your there, and have to time to think for a night, sometimes you see the light, and you think you could give it one more try at home, which is what we did. So we didn't leave only because of what happend that night. My point is, if I leave my children w/ a babysitter or daycare, I expect that they will take as good of care of them, as I would. In saying that, I know they won't bec ause they are NOT me, but I expect them to give it a good effort. The same goes w/ your parents and grandparents, if we can no longer handle them ourselves at home, and must put them in trained peoples hands, I expect them to be treated as good as they would want to be treated, and as good as what i would do for them at home, with the understanding, they are NOT us, they do not love them like us, and there are 50 or more other patients wanting the same, but I expect there to be a really good effort. And no grumbling and attitude, even if they didn't actually "say" it, you can tell when someone is into their job or not, or would rather be doing something else. Everyone makes mistakes, and I would hope, had we talked to someone about it, it wouldve been corrected. Actually, we saw David, when we were leaving for home the next morning, and he did stop and ask me was there a problem, and I said no, because the main thing, was it just wasnt the right time to put our loved one there at that time, and an incident over going to the bathroom, bedpans, the delay, soggy socks, dirty feed, just seemed so minor compared to the task we had before us, in taking our loved one home again, and it wasn't worth getting anyone in trouble over, when we were not going to be there anymore. Again, I'd like to state, though, I do know of some nice dayshift workers, and this incident happend several years ago, so for all I know, maybe those people no longer work there, or someone else has brought things to the owners attention and the problem is corrected. And I couldn't do their job, for real, I would not be so patient, not with that many people when they are not your own. It's one thing to be patient w/ your own in that situation, it's quite another to be that way w/ people who are not family. I could'nt do it, to be honest.

I think that the problem was not with the nursing home at all but rather you specifically looking for reasons- any reasons because as you said- you were not ready to put him there. I know for a fact that if my loved one had been treated poorly it wouldn't matter if we were leaving or not I would have let someone know what had happened to prevent it from happening to the next person that came in! If someone really and truly wants to know how the nursing home is than GO THERE! They have activities going on through out the day with volunteers and church groups- lots of people there- no one would even notice if you were there. Watch how these nurse aides care for their patients. Listen to how they speak with them. Laugh with them. For most of these patients the workers there are all they have since their family brings them there and never comes back! Don't judge things based on assumption.
Great nurse in ER

You know, WE cant help it when u place your loved ones in the nursing home,and feel guilty about it. We are the ones who become their family. If you feel so guilty try to visit your mother, father, grandparents, aunt and uncles and stop writing useless info on the internet. As you sleep at night, I just want all of you to remember that when your family is placed at JJ's they are very well taken care of and LOVED!

Ok, what is up with all the bashing of the nursing home. My grandma has been in nursing home for years, she has alzheimers and we could no longer care for her at home without putting her in danger. We visit everyday both days and nights. I just want to say the nightshift crew is so great with her. I dont understand why ppl want to complain. The girls who look after my grandmother are all sweet and caring and take the extra time to sit down and talk with her when she wants to talk, especially on nightshift the girls are awesome,These girls have become my family and my grandmothers family. I just want to take the time to thank some of my grandmas caretakers, so thanks to Carrie,Misty,Bojay(sorry if i mispelled the names)and we adore Teresa, she is a great nurse. Casey u are a sweetheart. So to all u complainers out there, theres always someone who appreciates the employees at JJ Jordans!!!!!!!!!

I wish people will stop putting the nursing home down!!!! I'm an employee there, and I wish for one day; you come to work as a CNA. The job we do is hard at time, but we love what we do. You have to have a heart to work there.

But dont ask for help around Christmas, I have a family member that was in there, shortly, for re-hab, he had come in from Kings Daughters and had already started rehab there, and shipped in in the night. They did not want to assist us, getting him to the bathroom. They insisted he use a bedpan, when he was of sound mind, and had been using the rest room at Kings Daughters, in fact that was part of his rehab and were glad to let him go, rather than clean up a mess. When we finally insisted that he be allowed to get up and recieve help to the restroom, there was a leak around the toilet, of which his socked feet got into, then they put him back to bed and wouldn't have changed his soggy socks had we not brought it to their attention. Then they took his soggy socks off, and wouldn't have washed his feet off, had we not brought that to their attention, and then it took quite awhile to get him some clean socks. It took about 2hrs to get them to even come and help him to the rest room, what we couldn't understand, was it was at night, most patients were in their beds for the night and the nurses seemed more intent on talking, laughing and eating their Christmas goodies, rather than getting on the ball, and helping him go as soon as we asked, it's not like they were busy attending to other patients, there were several, just hanging out in the station. We promptly checked him out the next morning and he recovered at home. Then a couple years later, when he had Dr's orders to be admitted bec we couldn't care for him at home, there was a bed open, but then they said "we can not meet his needs" and wouldn't accept him. Well, duh! it's a nursing home, what needs couldn't be met? I think they like the kind that are bed ridden so they don't have as much to do, thus we took him to Inez, where he recieved wonderfull care. They are on th eball up there, if you order a cup of coffee, for him, they will bring you one too, and with in a half hour or less. If he wants to call home in the middle of the night and talk to his wife, they let him. If he wants to get up and walk around the place, he is allowed, so are many others, they encourage that. But I do know some nice people that do work ther,e on dayshift, though, and David is a nice person and runs a good place, just think he didn't know about some stuff that goes on in the night, and them being a little lazy. They also said our loved ones rehab wouldn't start til after New years, so instead of cont what was started at Kings Daughters, he wouldve sat there over a wk, w/ no rehab, which is the whole and only reason why he was in there. We took him home and he was up walking and back to what he normally did at home with in three months. I think if we had left him there, he would be beridden right now, which makes it easier for them.
when your loved one is admitted into a facility of any kind (hospital,nursing home or where ever) a doctor and therapist has to make sure your loved one is stable on their feet if not its a fall risk which means lawsuit....if your loved one is brought in the evening or weekend then that means the next day or monday before that patient can b assessed would you rather your love one use a bedpan or break a hip?

Gas up was at 4 dollars, and she went to Mt. Manor because it's closer to where she lives.
