    My 90 year old mother-in'-law was left alone in the bathroom for an hour . She couldn't walk and had no way to call for help. When the attendant finally came back and my mother-in-law complained, the attendant said they were short staffed that day and she had been working on another hall during that hour.

    THEY DESERVE NEG STARS As R Ceasar said over a year ago the Laurels of HELL... DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVE ONE HERE. This place is a nightmare from hell, before your love one dies. I sent my father here for rehabilitation and skill nursing needs and not only did they not provide proper rehabilitation or adequate service and they over sedated him. They were advised by Wake med he needed rehabilitation and a lock down unit because of his wondering around due to his Alzheimer disease.The Laurels of Chatham stated they could handle him. Within 48 hours they called me to come and get him.Due to my run in with DHHS not possible for me, nor did I have a bed for him. They also stated they had no lock down unit, but they worked it out. They put him in a wheelchair with a chest belt and alarm. We think at times he was restrained to his bed. They decided to go against doctor orders for physical therapy and kepi him in a wheelchair. Communication was non existent You could visit and never find his nurse to ask about him. When calling you could wait for hours and never get passed the operator. The only time they called was looking for money, which I withheld so someone would call me and I could find out how he was. This is just a little more: was a well dressed man and they wanted to put him in sweet pants and tee shirt. Took his SS check without notifying his POA Tried taking retirement check by changing info with the state, they shut down the account till POA was proven. His oral hygiene was not taken care of. was not bathed regularly. was not shaved regularly. Hair and nail were not cared for regularly.r ask, nurses never knew where he was. Needed new clothing monthly. Kicker was needing underwear, he was in diapers. Ask me to personally sign a promissory note for months that insurance paid for rehab. on Christmas eve his personal care giver visited and said he ate good and looked good. Within 3 days his blood O2 was 60% and they wanted to know if I wanted him sent to the hospital. At the hospital they found out he was severely dehydrated (lack of fluids) and the salt levels to be high which caused his internal organs to fail and death on New Years day 2016. His caregiver was shocked as he was doing so good when she visited him during Christmas. This place needs investigation by NC dept of HHS for about 6 months to see just what they do.......

    I went there to check it out for my grandmother and was overly impressed. The care that my grandmother had during the end of her life was amazing and the staff was so caring and kind to us as well. I dont know what happened in the 2 years since the bad reviews on google appeared, but I have nothing but the best to say about the care there. Its not super fancy, its not a resort, but the staff there is what matters.

    This place is a joke!! the nurses are not friendly, they do NOT look after your love one at all. My mother was there for 10 days. I decided to do a "pop-up" visit only to find my Mom burning up with a fever, face was beet red, she was completely out of it. It took over 15 minutes to get her nurse to come in the room. She transported to the Hospital and had infection in her blood. I can't believe how rude everyone was. This place needs to be shut down!!!

    Laurels of Chatham....Laurels of HELL... DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVE ONE HERE. This place is a nightmare from hell, before your love one dies. I sent my father here for rehabilitation and skill nursing needs and not only did they not provide adequate service they over sedated him to a point where he was rushed to the Emergency Room several times until finally the doctors at UNC refused to send him back there. They overdose the elder with oxycodone and other medications. I've filed a complaint with the State of North Carolina to investigate this nursing facility.

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.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
