This nursing home is a poor facility, I've watched the administration get walked all over the son, and Adobe, and Matt witch is a long with the title nurse management, witch he shouldn't have. He's a lpn . When patients ask personally for Matt he says I'll be there when I ready and never shows up. Its is a disgrace of if I u send ur love ones here they are not taken care of.

DON'T LEAVE YOUR LOVED ONE HERE. If I had it to do over again I would not. The place is clean and the administration seems nice while you are reviewing the facility. Once they have you as a patient, things change. I personally witnessed an aide hitting a patient on the hand, patient left in courtyard and rolling backwards because aide didn't lock wheelchair, buzzards going off with no attendance. This is only a short list. Much more witnessed. My husband was left at a doctors appt unattened. He called me frantic because he didn't know where he was or who he was suppose to see. Called facility and had them send a tech out immediately to where they left him. Was left unattened two other times with me on the way to facility. The driver could have waited a couple of minutes instead of just leaving him there unattended. Admissions wanted him to read and sign about 25 pages worth of stuff instead of waiting on me to get there. My husband had a traumtic brain injury so was not able to read and sign. They just wanted him to sign. Social worker lies. She is very incompetent for her position.

My father was there for rehab purposes after being in the hospital for 28 days. He needed wound treatment with a vacuum pump. The facility alleged that they had skilled nurses but he and I had to walk them through the process each time. I don't know if it is a result of this poor care but we lost the skin graft as soon as we were released to Texas and went to would care specialists. Attempted to escalate concerns and no one took me seriously or bothered to follow up. Would not recommend.

My mom was in for a few days rehab after knee surgery. Staff took hours to bring water and bring medication. She was given a diaper instead of taking the time to help her walk, which was the whole reason she was there. She was supposed to be on knee exceriser 6 hours a day, she was lucky to get one hour. Beautiful facility but would not recommend to anyone.

I would NOT recommend this facility to anyone! Please read this...my Mother was a Cancer Patient, in Remission there for Rehab Only! The overworked,short handed staff failed to use Universal Precautions, ie: gloves, masks, gowns, when my mother developed not one but three deadly infections, the staff's words to me was , "We do not have to wear them..." My mother was rushed to the hospital where the hospital staff was so alarmed that she was severely dehydrated. Approximately a month later, my mother passed away from battling infections that she acquired from being in this facility. They serve fruit punch with every meal! The managerial staff-only care about their paychecks! The food...I would not recommend-horrible! The staff converse unprofessionally in the halls and treat the residents as if they are children and call everyone Sugar, Sweetie, or Honey...when you ask them a question regarding treatment - the answer is I'm just the messenger and will give you the run around. When you as a family member or the resident want to set up a meeting, no one shows from the facility. They break mostly every patient right- the treatment team doesn't even include the patient/resident in their care plan conference to review the person's progress. Now...is this a place you would like your parents to be in? Search long and hard-Although this facility looks nice...it's awful...My Mother died too young from simple mistakes of not using gloves, masks, and not adequate treatment...Don't let this happen to your family.
