My mother died in this place in July 2009, after reading the accounts of others posted here, I am beginning to see why. I would not recomment this place either.
This place is awful in all my yrs in the health care fieldthis has to be the worst i have ever seen. I took my client to rehab here after an illness. What a mistake my clients blood sugar had been out of control for a few weeks when she asked to have it taken it was well over 300 she asked for insulin she was met with a nasty attitude it took a few hrs to get her insulin. She is wheel chair bound and large she asked to be washed on her lower half at 2 pm @9:50pm they showed up washed her upper half put her in bed and said we are outta here. At 10 pm she asked to have her blood sugar checked they refused and she checked her own after they brought her her own kit. She let them know she was unhappy with the care the nurse on duty then threatend her telling her she would pay for this out of her own pocket etc she was then left with no call light finally my client called the hospital to get the number to call the desk. I could go on and on this all in a 48hr time. Needless to say we transferred here elsewhere quick.
I would advise not working there or placing yourself or a loved one there for care. I do not say this lightly.
terrible – I had my dad in this place last june 2011 he did fine in express and loved the girls, the care was great. But then
he had to go to long term. I am not even going to telll you
everything about this plalce, but here are a few, not enough skilled nurses, not enough people to run this side of this home. My dad was bed bound and he yelled for help for 2 hours and there was non one around they had all gone to lunch. My sister came in and helped him. The night he died the nurse on duty did not even call us she waited until Hospice came so we really dont know when he
died, time wise. We left instructions to call us if he got worse. My sister lived across the street and could have been there in 3 minutes to be with him when he died and not be all alone. I will never forgive ever these people, they are the worst. Take your loved ones else where for long term care. I could go on for hours but I think this is enough for you to make your decision
not good – i wouldnt give this place even a one star rating!! i have just recently been in the Express Recovery unit for inpatient rehab for a hip replacement and i was there for SIX days,and received maybe 2 hours of physical therapy in that time,so they pretty much set me back in my rehabilitation. I am 54 yrs. old so i wasnt an invalid,and also i was alert in mind,and asked questions! i didnt take their word for anything,and i have a daughter who has been in the nursing field,and she definitely looked out for me!! After one nite there,a nurse lost her job because of her treatment of me!! I was there for some physical therapy on the Rehab side,the other side is Nursing Home,and there was no differrence because i felt like i was in a nursing home,from the treatment i got there. I wouldnt recommend this place to my worst enemy,and i would leave by word of mouth!! One nurse even almost gave me wrong medication had i not noticed it. Several call lites would be on,and nurses standing around at the nurse's station. I regret not walking out of there after the first day because it was a waste of my time and money,and that place didnt deserve neither!! I feel for those who are in there and they need our prayers!! And anyone who goes in there,i pray they have family members who keep a very close eye on their loved one,and alwaysss question the staff there and dont take their word on anything!! I sure got a taste of what a nursing home is like!!
Independence Rehab one of the best – We recently had a family member in the Express Recovery unit of the Independence Rehabilitation Center and have found the facility to be clean, sweet smelling and tastefully furnished. The care our loved one received has been thorough and has proven very beneficial after her severe injury. The food was very satisfactory and staff professionalism has been excellent. As family members, we have been treated with respect and kept informed on all phases of care. I highly recommend this facility for short or long term care.
they suck real bad – i would never put any of my family there. i strongly sugest independence manor care center is the best nursing home ever.
