The care my mother received was very good and the nurses were very caring. There was little in the way of cleaning of her room except emptying wastebaskets and a quick swiffer type swipe across the floor. Nothing was moved to clean. It made me wonder what the cleaning of a room was like between patients. Otherwise, a good exprience.
