My dad went here for rehab after he broke his back. The hospital picked this facility. At the time this was the only one available. Two days before he was to be released, my dad fell and broke his neck. The staff found him on the bathroom floor, picked him up (with a broke back) and put him in a wheelchair, rolled the wheelchair to the bed and moved him into the bed. A nurse called me and told me he had fallen but was okay, there was nothing to worry about. I was in my car on the way to the facility to see my dad when she called. I told her I would be there within 10 minutes. When I got there she had gone to lunch. I walked in my dad's room, he was lying on the bed with bruises on his face, the back of his head bleeding on his pillow, and him looking at me with a confused look. I asked him if he knew what happened. He said no. He didn't have any idea what was going on. I was extremely upset, I insisted they call 911 and have my dad taken to the emergency room to be checked out. I was really, really upset over all this. There was blood about a foot up from the floor on the tile wall where my dad had hit is head when he fell. He was suppose to push a button and wait for someone if he wanted to get out of bed. But, my dad was 90 years old with dementia. He would forget he was suppose to wait for help. There was no buzzer on the bed to alert the staff is he got up, even though he was in there because of breaking his back due to a fall. The results of tests at the emergency room revealed my dad had broken his neck and suffered a concussion. Due to the broken neck he was unable to swallow and a feeding tube was surgically inserted into his stomach. He never recovered, 3 months later he died. Three weeks after that my mom died. They had been married for 68 years.

The PLACE SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN !!!!!! If you don't love or care for your love one send them here !! Most of the staff don't care !! They don't follow doctors orders or that of the families !! Causing hospital stays, worsen health conditions causing earlier death !! They steal anything they can including your love ones pain medication !! You have to take your love one to the restroom because most of the time they won't come and they'll tell you NO !! The only Good there is the therapy and the 4 nurses and 2-3 aides !! I know of two elderly patients that fell out of bed and not one nurse got off their lazy butts to check on them !!!!
Never take your love ones here! It is so sad, how some of the evening nurses (LPN) treats their patients. They take their sweet time and sometimes doesn't give meds on time. I would not recommend this place even if it's for a month. The nurses are just plan lazy.
