Not happy with my mother's treatment here and have had to hire a private duty nurse's aid to be sure my mother is safe at night. She is there for rehab from a stroke. Is not supposed to get out of bed or wheelchair on her own but has had to wait uncomfortably long times for assistance to the bathroom and this while she was being treated for a UTI. She's bored. No real attempt to engage patients or even seat them together in the dining hall. Dining in the dining hall happens only by prior arrangement, not a daily experience for my mother anyway (implication is that it would be too much work for the staff). Physical therapy varies from some good people to not-very-professional people who leave patients on their own with one exercise to do over and over. Patients don't do therapy together as they do at Bpt Hospital, which makes a big difference. No one around to get patients out of their beds and practicing walking with walkers in the hallway between therapy sessions. Aids come in and tidy up my mother's room, moving important items out of her reach. (But where are these people when my mother needs them to use the bathroom or take a walk??) Many doors do not appear to be ADA accessible. Nurses at nurses station are unfriendly and unhelpful and always eating takeout when you come to ask a question. Asked for a printout of my mother's medications, got a scrap of paper with a handwritten list that took the nurse forever to write. Nurses and aids seem to always have tags turned around so you can't read their names. The admin nurses don't even wear tags. There's more but that's the gist. Overall, an unfriendly- and unprofessional-feeling place with no sense of community or compassion.

On average my father waite 48 minutes for help to use the toilet. And he asked four times a day. When I complained, I was told, "We can't get staff." My reply? "Close down the facility." Carrolton is overdecorated and understaffed. My dad was NOT incontient until he entered Carrolton. He was there for six months and died there. It was a nightmare. I only wish I had gotten him out. His meals were brought in and unless my mother was there to help him cut the food, etc., the tray was taken away, with all the meal uneaten. There was no help. And for $130k a year, you can do better for your family. Avoid this gaudy place at all costs.
