    My experience at The Plaza Rehabilitation and Nursing Center has been beyond lovely. We're human so every place and person has an off day here and there but overall I have no complaints about my stay here. The staff are attentive, the doctor is always on top of things, my room is always tidy and there's tons of activities within the facility to keep one entertained. In the past 3 months, I've developed a close relationship with many including the new Concierge in Admissions. They have gone above and beyond to find solutions to anything I throw at them. If you're looking for a rehabilitation and nursing center whether it be long-term or short-term to place your loved ones in, you won't regret choosing The Plaza.

    This place used to be above average when it was Jewish Home Life Care, but it was sold a few months ago and it has been going "down the tubes" ever since. I am even worried about the health and life of my family member. They neglect him to the point that his health has deteriorated tremendously. They don't even bathe him or change his clothes. The rooms are filthy. He goes hungry because usually there is no adequate food for him and in a couple of occasions when I visited I had to go out to get some food in a restaurant for him. He's allergic to fish and last week I visited at dinner time and they were about to serve him fish. And if you bring it to their attention, they look at you like if you were disgusting. And they get angry and scream and yield at you. Tell treatment to the families is disrespectful and even insulting. They never, EVER, answer the phones. And if they do, once in a blue moon, they yield at you and hang up on you. Last week I requested to have him moved to another floor (which took my blood, my tears, my energy), but he didn't want to stay on that floor and when I went to see him a week later his closet and drawers were empty. They had left all his belongings in the other room and I had to carry them in a wheelchair and took me two trips to bring everything back. In short, I know I should take him out of there, but nursing homes are like "roach motels", you can get in, but can't get out. Besides, all of the are the same garbage. At least, be aware of where you are leaving your loved one in.

    My sister has been at the Plaza for awhile, and I must say we are very grateful and impressed by the cleanliness, care & hospitality given at this facility. My sister normally complains but she is very content at this place. Even with the food she's been pleased. They also have daily activities throughout the day, if they wish to attend. I would definitely recommend "The Plaza" to anyone who is looking for a decent place for their their loved ones to stay. I would've given them 5 star if they had parking for those who drive to visit.

    The Plaza is a fabulous nursing home! As we service the vending machines here I witness how each and every resident is being taken care of with all their needs. The place is always spotless clean and the staff members are so nice and friendly.

    By the way, somehow these people managed to delete my picture from my review. Also they somehow put a number 1 after my first name. Probably to confuse the readers and make them believe I am not the same Diana Dou who wrote a review about a month and a half ago. If you scroll down you can see my other review. My uncle was fisically fine until two months ago, when we even went to IHOP for brunch. Ten days ago that place, The Plaza Rehab, put him in the hospital so sick that the doctors told me that nothing could be done for him and they recommended to send him to hospice. Of course, I said no, and they better did everything that could be done till the last second. For starters, his kidneys stopped functioning, AT ALL. Secondly, he had an infection that the doctors in the hospital didn't know where it was coming from. Until they determined it was coming from a ball THE SIZE OF AN ORANGE that he has on his neck ( the nurses and the doctor, Dr. Sheryl Humphrey, in the nursing home, didn't see any of this, not even the ball, that besides being the size of an orange, it was red like an apple). A sonogram was done and they discovered it's soft tissue and are treating it with antibiotics. It was so bad that after 11 days of antobiotics, it got better, but it's not gone. In addition, he got an afliction called Rhabdomyolysis, which is the breakdown of the muscles, that they are treating in the hospital too, but he's not out of danger. The doctors debated about giving him dialysis, but he's so weak (I just learned he had been living on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because they never gave him his adecuate diet.) that he wouldn't tolerate the dialysis, and they are treating him with Furosemide, which is a medication to make him urinate, but it does not restore the other function of the kidneys, which is to process and eliminate the enzymes. He cannot eat or drink, because he shokes, he had had nothing to eat or drink in eleven days. Just the IV. Again, the doctors debate about opening his stomach and putting a feeding tube in him, but he's so weak that he would't tolerate the operation. After a lot of prodding from myself, because I don't want him to starve to death, they put a feeding tube through his nose, since they were able to take the oxigen tube from his nose since now, after 11 days, he's breathing on his own. One of the most amazing part of all this is that I had to call a couple of people I know in the nursing home to make arragements to pick up his belongins, and NOT ONE, when I told them the situation of my uncle, uttered the words "I'm sorry"! On the contrary, they both told me they had to run because they were getting another call. I will deeply appreciate it if those of you out there, who believe in God, would say a prayer for him. Thanks from the bottom of my heart!

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others.

In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.
