    Not a good place to work....do not go there to work because they have high turn over ratio because Liz Thomas is a #$%*. She is very racist and doesnt know how to be professional. She has staff doing different kind of personal favors. She treats Male employees better because she likes to flirt with them. Corporate is stupid for not recognizing the bottom like problem for high turn over ratio.

    I know it is very cliche to say "don't ever take your loved one here," but I will reiterate this and I hope whoever reads this pays very close attention. I would not send my STUFFED animal to this facility!!!! My father was admitted to this place for rehabilitation for approximately three weeks after having a stroke. During my first visit to this place, I immediately noticed the smell of dirty adult diapers. This smell would become a staple for this facility. The staff, both nurses and aides, are neglectful towards the residents and do not appear to have adequate knowledge of their employment fields. I am not sure if the neglect is purposeful. However, I will say that the customer service overall at this facility is very poor. My father's health began to decline rapidly at this facility from the beginning of admission and both my husband and I asked the administrators for answers regarding my father's overall appearance and health to no avail. We were constantly assured that my father's current condition and response to stimuli was very normal, and we were told that it was customary because of him having had a stroke. In addition, my father developed a horrible and very productive cough during his stay at this facility and I asked that he receive an x-ray of his chest to rule out the possibility of pneumonia. The facility finally adhered to my request, but I basically had to run down the test results. At first, they could not find the test results and no evidence of the results were ever shown to me or the family. The facility only confirmed that he did not have pneumonia and that everything was fine. They suggested he take cough and allergy medication for his cough. In addition, we questioned the facility about a sore my father had on his bottom area and we also questioned the facility about the fact that my father had become very lethargic and weak during his stay at this facility. The HEAD OF NURSING at the facility stated that she examined his bottom and that he only had a small rash from friction, that there was nothing to worry about. They also, again, reassured us that his behavior was normal for someone after having a stroke. The VERY NEXT morning after being told my father was "fine," we received a call from the facility stating that "his cough had gotten worse" and they were rushing him to the hospital. At the hospital, the ER medical staff immediately noticed the cough and pre-diagnosed him with pneumonia (with tests and x-rays later confirming the diagnosis). In addition, the ER medical staff discovered that my father's blood pressure had severely dropped, he was severely dehydrated (although he was on a feeding tube while in the rehabilitation center), he had a horrible UTI, and he had developed THREE bedsores while at the facility. Within hours of my father being admitted to the ER, he began to look lively again, he began talking again, and you could tell that the therapy he was receiving from the hospital was working.

    Please don't use this place, my dad was in there up until January 16th 2018 when I got a call that a xray was done and it was showing that he was in heart failure and was being sent to Emory in midtown and that I needed to call all the family. I started crying because I was 2 hrs away. I got to Emory midtown and was told that he was taken to Emory on Clifton Rd. So I drive 20 more mins, I see my dad he was swollen over his whole body being a firefighter I knew something wasn't right because my dad is little so I ask the doctors . This place didn't send no paperwork on him to the hospital . The doctors ask me where his was living I told them. We'll she told me that she seen a lot of neglect to him. He was retaining water which was cause the swolling and heart failure. He was admitted . Other test was done on his heart, blood, only to find out that he had a bacteria growing in his blood and antibiotics was given which they couldn't give a high dose because the heart test showed he's only got 10% of his heart left and the main valve is very narrow . My dad has done had a stroke 4 days after being at Emory because of this. My dad is going to another home until hospice care for his final days. Because of this place my dad has any day to live, the longest is 6 months.. This place don't care about our love ones. They put them in wheelchairs lined up down the hall and leave they. My dad also fell trying to get out of his wheelchair and he's completely blind and landed a lift that picks up people and I never got a call on that I found him with a black eye the next day along with him complaining about his left side. They only have 2 nurses working at night . My dad had to go to the hospital in the middle of the night and I went to the nursing home while waiting on the ambulance and I asked the nurse why she was taking so long to get everything and she stated they only have 2 working on nights. Now I worked in a nursing home and their now way that you can take care of that many people with just 2 people there's no way. I strongly encourage you not to use this place.. God bless

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.
