Please don't take your loved one here. My grandmother had to have hip surgery after she fell and needed rehab. We planned to spend a lot of time with her at the facility so even after the bad reviews we thought it would be okay. We couldn't get her in to the one we wanted because it was full and this was our second choice. My grandmother wasn't supposed to be walking by herself at all so they put a bed alarm on her bed to alert the staff when she sat up in bed. I was there at least a dozen times in the ten days she was there when she would get up and the alarm would go off for 10-12 minutes and no one would come to offer help. I'm so thankful I was there or she could have fallen. I later found out from her roommate that she had climbed over the bed rail during the night to get to the restroom and no one came to help. She said she always went by herself when we weren't there. Her doctor had stressed how careful she had to be until she was completely recovered. She easily could have fallen and re-injured her hip or broken something else. She was just out of hip surgery and wasn't very steady on her feet at all. I witnessed her roommate sitting in a soiled diaper for two hours when she had called the nurses and I has asked someone to help her. It took them two hours to help her get changed then she said the male nurse who changed her fussed the entire time. This is just unacceptable and makes me furious that this sweet lady was treated so badly. We were fed up and had decided we could do better at home three days ago. We went in to check her out and take her home. When I arrived she was shaking violently and looked very sick. I took her temperature and it was 101.7. None of the nurses even noticed she was sick. We had her transported to the hospital where she was diagnosed with c-diff and in critical condition. I just wonder when they would have noticed something was wrong with her if we didn't spend all day everyday with her. She was lethargic and hard to wake up but they just insisted she was dehydrated when we made the choice to take her to the hospital. This facility is completely negligent and my grandmother wasn't safe there at all. The nurses were all rude and uncaring except for one sweet lady named Mary. I will admit that the occupational and physical therapists my grandmother saw were great but that was just 60-90 minutes a day that she was with them. The rest time she just sat in her room with the nurses meeting her bare minimum needs like delivering her meals and giving her medication. I wish I had known what this place was like before we took my sweet grandmother there. I truly feel like we put her in jeopardy by putting her in the care of this facility.
