When your loved one is in a nursing home, no matter where it is you will always think they are getting the worst care. Also, unless you have been a CNA at Mark Twain SHUT UP! You people have no idea what they go through and how hard MOST of them work to take care of YOUR loved one.
And who's fault is that? You have to work so hard because the management makes you, not the poor patient who has to be in there. Why, you don't even give them the care they need, yet someone is getting paid to do it. These nursing homes don't do it for free. If you don't like or want your job, then quit.

Why don't you try working in a skilled nursing facility, then maybe you might realize how hard the staff works to take care of 80 plus residents.Sure there are some very lazy aids but i know for a fact that there are some very caring and hard working staff at Mark Twain Caring Center. And Hope Hall is working constantly to weed out the bad and hire more good aids. So if you think you know what goes on in a nursing home try working in one.

People should take care of their own. There is always a way. If you don't take care of your family don't get on here and complain.

I have worked in a nursing home as a CNA and then also as an LPN, in my opinion. All direct patient care staff are overworked and under paid. I have witnessed those staff members who do not have the heart it takes to take care of the patients in these facilities and that are only there because it was an easy job to get and for the paycheck. I have also witnessed those staff members who come into these facilities daily and treat the patients as their own family. You will get the bad with the good no matter what. All you can do is visit often to make sure your family member is treated right! I personally worked in the facility as a CNA and think that it is one of the MOST overworked places in town, a facility that had some of their staff work NUMEROUS double shifts in a week at one point in time (not sure if they still do) My reasoning for leaving the facility was just that. I was required to work a double shift almost 3-4 days a week. As far as nursing homes go, I would choose Westwood Hills for a family member if I HAD to place them in one. I have also worked in this facility, as an LPN.

Yeah the staffing at all nursing homes in Poplar Bluff is pathetic from what I have seen- if you aren't happy with the way your family members are being treated, please take a few seconds before you grab the closest CNA and yell at them.

While their are some bad CNA's, no doubt- most of them really care about the patients and have close relationships with them. The problem comes in when the ones that do care are worked to an extreme, and guilted into not working even MORE because they actually do give a damn.

The person you DO need to yell at if you feel like your relatives are not being taken care of, are the highest management positions there. Not director of operations, go higher then that. If you really want to get something done, go for the administrator. You wanna see results, have about 20 pissed off relatives calling her every 5 minutes and things WILL change, because they don't give a shit when CNA's etc have to put up with it but by God they won't want to listen to it.

My relative was a very rich woman until her family put her in a nursing home. She and the administrator went to court to get her money out of the family's hands. It wasn't long though that she didn't have clothes or money. She was on medicaid or whatever they call govt. assistance. I would go see her, but she was almost always asleep. When she was awake, she would ask me to take her home with me. By that time, I couldn't take care of her even if I wanted to.

Daughter, Kim who? I can tell you that my grandmother is there and she has to be there. She's almost died twice in her stay there. Also, she is constantly in pee and poop. What's sad is there is nothing we can do about it because she hasno where else to go.
There's always someplace to go-I have a difficult time understanding family members who are quick to accuse of abuse and threaten the nursing home staff who are trying to provide care for their patient-unfortunately the reality is there are patients in need from one end of the building to the other. I personally have witnessed family members rant and rave-take pictures- ect- but have not made a move to remove their loved one from what they call an abusive situation.Where is the logic in that? Every patient in a home is there for a reason and require 24 hour care therefor it is impossible for a family member to provide such extensive care. Difficult is an understatement with only one to care for-try 80 to 100 all at one time. True-we are over worked in nursing but those of us who keep going back day after day knowing how difficult it is to make ends meet CARE about what we do and take pride in obtaining one smile from that little person who needs our help. I personally have been in long term care for 20 plus years and would not trade the experiences I've shared for anything. Through the years we have shared laughter and tears with both the patient and the family members-as long term care nurses we believe in holistic care and will try to put our best foot forward on a daily basis. Before you judge----WALK A MILE IN OUR SHOES! As far as Ruth Warren goes-she is one of the most knowledgeable-caring administrators I have ever had the honor to work for-very involved with patient care and quick to correct a problem when it occurs. Now there's a job not meant for the weak hearted-you have to be very strong and attentive to patient needs and be their protector at all times. For you folks who believe she is notified prior to state visit-you people are very unrealistic-state and federal inspectors are not permitted to notify a facility before a visit. Yay for Mrs. Warren and Hope Hall for all their hard work and dedication!

Good plan Skippy!! The CNAs should all quit and then the critical, stupid people like you can take their places.Be prepared to work long hours for little money, skip meals and bathroom breaks and disappoint your own family because you have to work an extra shift.....again.

Sounds like staffing is a big problem at Mark Twain! Looks like hiring additional staff would eliminate alot of their current problems. Oh wait, that takes away from the bottom line, not likely to happen!

No, they should keep on breaking their backs for management. Have you ever thought that if they did quit, something would have to be done then? No, I guess not. You are so smart, you would never have thought of that.

I totally agree with this comment because i to work at Mark Twain Caring Center and have been for almost 4 years. We have some pretty awesome aids and they are over work but they keep coming back day after day because they care about their residents. You people that want to complain about us need to take a long hard look at yourselves and just remember God is the only one that can judge!

For sure they should all just quit, then they can live off the state just like complaining idiots like you. Did you ever think that they may have a feeling of responsibility toward the residents that they take care of. Especially the ones who have no family or are "dumped" there by their families. Those are the family members who come in and complain the loudest when they occasionally feel guilty. The staff knows which families care because they see them often...not just on Christmas or birthdays. No one seems to give them credit for trying to do a difficult job with little or no thanks. Well, maybe they aren't breaking their backs for management...maybe they are doing it for the residents and to support their own families. It means something when a resident says "I don't know what I would do without your help, honey." So keep on complaining be part of the problem instead of part of the solution. Or get off your lazy butt and go in and vounteer to help. They always need help with activities, or just to visit with residents who don't have visitors, etc. Call your representatives and get laws changed to require a certain amount of staff for a certain amount of residents. The direct care staff have no input into the amount of staffing required for adequate care but they are the ones who always hear the complaints. Or keep on complaining that may be the only thing you are qualified to do.

It's sad that so many have complaints and you and others that work in these homes say they are just complainers. It just shows that there are two sides. Yours and the ones who suffer and pay. Go ahead soft soap it all. That's all you have ever done anyway. That's why nothing gets done to help the poor patient.

I had loved ones in Mark Twain a few years back and was so appreciative of the support staff that did their job well! Of course, there were slackers back then as well, but the good ones managed to out shine them. I believe the support staff (as a whole was good) but even then the center seemed to be under staffed. The patient/staff ratio seems to be unbalanced, but I'm sure they are up to code. The few times that I had major concerns I went to Ruth and my concerns were addressed and action was taken to correct the problem. I will forever be grateful for the love and kindness the staff showed my loved ones!!
