Details:

Mother received very poor care by doctors, nurses and the social worker. She was left on the toilet for 1 hour, although the staff did not want her family helping her in and out of the bathroom. Staff was inattentive and cold toward the patient to the point that she did not want to call them for pain medication, help tot the restroom or anything else that would help with her general care. Doctors did not identify themselves or leave a card which helped her remember who she saw. In spite of the attentiveness of her family, no one felt it necessary to talk tot them about their mother's care. I would not have anyone I know stay there or receive treatment at this facility.
