I have placed my Mom in a couple of NH over the past several years. What I have noticed overall is inefficient staff, inefficient operation, and the Directors and Social Worker stuck in their offices ALL day long, with what seems to me, no concern for what is actually going on in the daily operations with the elderly patients.
I've looked and compared facilities over and over again trying to find a few that are rated highly on the CMS.com site, but to NO AVAIL. They all seem to have many of the same infractions SO, my question to you is, WHY the heck are they allowed to stay open and operating?
I'm sure many of you have seen the recent video of the elderly woman who had vomited on herself only to be left sitting there until the staff has the time to tend to her. I hear room buzzers going off only to be ignored, etc. Why are we allowing these for profit nursing homes to continue to operate at such a deficient capacity? It's beyond sad to observe.
