Now . the real facts are coming out-that care is not that good -check the NYS on where Horace Nye stands compared to other nursing homes about the only thing we were above average was in # of pressure sores rest of it -the nursing home was below average in most everything including use of restraints and residents who spend all day sitting in chairs or laying in bed
And please notice most of the employees that are fighting the hardest are ones who have been there for 20 years or more-want to guess what their salaries are-no way will they make that much working somewhere else .

not taking the high road-just saying what I see happening and people need to know that all this nastiness will ultimately come back to haunt those employees who are being so nasty to everyone who does not share their opinions-and really nice name your parents gave you-One can Hope or is that a fake name? I wouldn't put my real name either after that crude comment you made earlier. It's just Sad

The nursing home has been mismanaged by the supervisors and county manager
because ultimately they run the place. Horace Nye has been fined for years not being up to code. They have good jobs now with good benefits what will they have when they privatize I think not much after a few years. Also i believe layoffs of some sort will follow.Why don't they look at what they cost the taxpayers for there song and dancing. They get 55 cents a mile to show up for maybe 2 hours on Monday but did they cut that this year no, no, no, they probably cost one person their job. How many take the health insurance in there towns and a Five thousand dollar buyout at the county. But there more important then the Horace Nye employee's If the taxpayers can't afford two million dollars a year out of a 104 million dollar budget to keep a 133 full and part time jobs and most important a place for our elderly then screw us all!

is it really about the residents or is it the fact that if they sell the employees will loose the union and will get a cut in pay!

99 percent are skanks who only care about $$$$$ not about the residents-can't take care of themselves or their families much less those poor residents
