My mother has suffered greatly at this nursing home- there have been many issues of medical errors, neglect, and extreme nastiness by staff in times of real need when compassion was needed. Keep your loved ones away from here.

My Father entered this institute June 29th and on July 7th we had to call 911 to get him out since he was drifting in to a coma. The Doctor took a man who has used insulin for 19 years off it for two days after seeing him once. Also took him off his sodium pills that were prescribed by Scottsdale Healthcare when he was admitted for very low sodium levels. This place should be closed down
