I have had similar experiences with the nursing home. My relative was in a room with a writer/poet with failing eyesight on the fifth floor. . The atmosphere in the nursing home was sad and some of the staff should have more empathy. .

My Aunt who passed away from lung cancer at the age of 60 stayed at VNS for the last few months of her life here. Overall the care was good but depending on the staff, and the floor that you were in. It is true that most of the day they will just sit your most beloved on a wheelchair outside on the hallways. Only once that I found my aunt fully naked and dangling halfway from her bed because she decided to go to the bathroom while no one has responded. We were so furious about this but luckily we were residence on the 6th floor. My Aunt died in the arm of a loving and caring RN and he told me that he was with her while she was going and we are really glad of that.
Since we felt that overall the VNS was not so bad we decided to admit my father-in-law a year later who has a stroke at the age of 74 which paralyzed his left side of the body. He was first resided on the 6th floor where the care was very good. As his insurance payment started to run out, he was moved to the 4th/5th floor and this is where the nightmare started. We were held at the mercy of the staff there. I can't said that all of the member of the staff is unloving but unfortunately most of them hated their jobs. One day my father did a #2 in his diaper and I requested nicely for his diaper change, waited, asked again, waited. After 4 hours of waiting, I confronted the staff and she said can't you see that I am busy? I told her that I was watching her and at time she was not doing anything but she said she was taking her breaks. I can't believe she yelled at me but she finally agreed to change the diaper. We are constantly at the staff's mercy and we have to change his diaper ourselves. We visited our father everyday so you can imagine the elders that do not have family visiting them so frequent. Yes, they are barely cared for. Since I was there so often and for many hours, I was able to assist many elderly with easy task as lowering the blinds, closing some windows, lowering the A/C, getting some water, turning on the radio, etc...These people are being neglected and the nursing home is charging them $150 to $400 per day. My Father-in-Law finally passed away from Hyperthermia, imagine the look in our faces when we received this phone call that he was rushed in on a 911 call. I asked did he fall into a cold bath of water but they insist that they did not know anything. I said I remember the staff like to open the window on my father side during the day time and she probably forgot to close it while the temp drop to 40 degree at night. My father is in no way to be able to do this himself and the other two men sharing the room is not capable of this task. We were looking into suing VNS for this negligence but the lawyer advised us that it will be ugly and lengthy and unless you are rich it is not worth it. Unless you are on the 6th floor, you better think twice of sending your loved one there. I wish I have the money to buy out VNS and change out the lazy staff so people should be cared for the way life was meant to be. Please do more research before sending your family here. Unless you can be here everyday then it will be okay. I hope you find this helpful and good luck to you in this difficult time.

I'm not too pleased with the Village Nursing Home. For one thing, my relative was admitted there early evening hours directly from a hospital but no orders for pain/sleep meds. were allegedly part of her hospital record, hence, my relative suffering needlessly with extreme pain and inability to sleep. After that first experience, my relative had to tolerate nurses and nurse aides not responding to her calls (a button is pressed) to remove a bedpan, and to give my relative an anti-nausea pill. This nursing home is probably representative of nursing homes, in general, and I am worried that I will lose my relative to such a continuing scenario. If anyone reads this & has some advice. kindly respond to raveorioles1@gmail.com. Dan

I spent many afternoons visiting a friend there who is 85 and recovering from a stroke, and septic shock. He is visually impaired and needs a lot of care. He was unable to go to the bathroom by himself, and rang hopelessly for a nurse who never came. A needless accident was the result. Patients sit around in wheel chairs begging the visitors to move them as the staff abandons them in the hall. The food is atrocious, with powdered mashed potatoes and the most tasteless, unappealing, non-nutritious hospital cuisine. I had to bring food in from outside every the day. Some members of the staff had an unpleasant, arrogant attitude. Enmities developed easily with normally amiable patients and visitors. One insisted that I, as a visitor, do her job of removing the food trays. Another severely frightened a patient by telling him he would never get out of there. A quarrel with a director of physical therapist over whether or not I had a right to accompany my friend as he did his therapy resulted in the therapist covering his name badge with his hand as I tried to video record his abuse. He also covered my camera lens with his hand, no doubt realizing he did something wrong. My friend, the patient, could hardly wait to get away from there. I do not recommend this institution.
