Details:

The facility is shabby and has an smell of mold. We were told there were no set visiting hours. However, when a family member wanted to stay during the night (in a private room), it was not allowed. The meds were not given appropriately. We were told there was a problem with the pharmacy getting the correct dose. Some days medication was given, other days not. When we complained, we were told to leave the facility. We did not leave in the few hours as requested, but did eventually leave to go to another facility. The administration did not like the family always being there. they had much to hide as we saw patients being ignored.

The Crossings took excellent care of my mother. I witnessed that they were patient with their most difficult residents. There were afternoon snacks while watching classic movies and no foul smells in the common areas. I popped in at odd times. I highly recommend this rehab. Terri.

This is the worst nursing home ever. I went to visit my friend's mom and I cannot even describe what I saw and How I was treat. All the nurses are very unrespecful with the patients. Nurses do not understand why they are in there for. They do not clean the patients, they do not change patients underwears frecuently. And the worse is the administrator lady who, when she noted I was a witness of all of it, was disgusting with me, she asked me to leave using bad words. I had never ever leave a love one in there.
