That place is a JOKE!! Not only do they treat their patients poorly they also treat their employees just as bad. My Wife worked their for 5 years and things were great up until this past year. She says they have Mice running around in patients rooms and all over the place.They are so under staffed and it takes nurses for ever to respond to patients calls or either they just don't care. A few of the RNs their only care about getting the Housekeepers fired more then they care about caring for the Patients there.

I have worked in several nursing homes and ALL of them are under staffed. I have not worked at this one. If there is an issue with patient care or environmental issues, you should contact the state and they WILL investigate the complaint.

Did u report it? Just wondering. It seems nobody at all cares about people in nursing homes especially the state. Being understaffed is not a valid reason to neglect someone. It's administrations fault.

Nursing homes is an up and coming investment by doctors.

IMO: Alsheimers and dementia are caused by psychtropic drugs, anti- depressants and Statin Drugs.

I had to bring in a PA to diagnose my grandma of a problem, which ultimately led to her death. Had it been caught sooner, it could have been treated. :(

My mother was a patient there for rehab and received a severe cut on her leg from a wheelchair.
