Administration was great about getting her in as a patience and painted a rosy picture, After getting my mom checked in to room the staff that is suppose to help and check on her was very lazy and apparently don't like there job! They said all the time they where under staffed and to busy to help but most time they where standing around nurse station gossiping and leaving patience unattended... Especially when it came to changing diapers and getting them to restroom when needed. Unless I had no choice I would not recommend any one there period.. All they care about is insurance money and not caring about people in need of care. They also did not get her rehab completed due to laziness and we had to move her to another center.. When the Medicaid 100 days payout is up they tell you you have to find somewhere else to go and its not there problem...
