I went to visit my father who is in rehab, and the room smelled of urine. The nurses never washed or changed him. The smell was so revolting I had to ask them to clean the room and even after, they never sent anyone to clean the area.

The nurses are wonderful. However the kitchen staff consistantly sends my father food that he is unable to eat due to dietary restrictions. He is on a low potassium diet and his diet slips clearly state what foods he is not to have...including for example broccoli and potatoes. Last night for dinner he was sent up two servings of potatoes and today he was sent up broccoli. I have had this issue with them on and off for the past year. Luckily my father knows what he cannot eat but it would be nice if the kitchen read the instructions on his chart.

I am appalled at the quality of food the patients in this facility are given. My elderly uncle is here post a severe stroke. While they are trying to rehabilitate him with physical therapy, they're feeding him meals with zero nutritional value. My uncle was served a small pale gray burger on a dry white bun with a side of wilted ice burg salad. Shame on them! Patients need advocates. Don't leave your loved ones unattended. Sadly, their best interest is not always the priority.

My father left Christ hospital in pretty good condition to this place and went back to Christ hospital in worst. He contracted a bacterial infection that I can only presume is from the lack of sanitation there. My dad is old and has a highly compromised immune system and by just seeing the filth around his neck I can tell that he was staying in squalor there. If you want to send a very sick person to their death send them to this facility.

This place with it's ill management and rude staff is an absolute disgrace. I work at a doctor's office and every patient that comes from this facility comes in completely disheveled. Excessively long and ungroomed nails and hair and beards that are a huge mess. They are often wearing dirty clothing and smell like urine. On more than one occasion they have sent patients in wheelchairs without a coat in cold weather. They treat their patients like livestock. I'm in tears sometimes when I see the condition they are in. I've had multiple bad phone experiences with the staff when I've needed to call in reference to patients. I'm distraught at the thought of the many elderly patients that have to endure the inhumane treatment they receive. Please do not send your loved one to this hell hole.

The WORSE place I have ever dealt with. If I could I would give them a negative 0!!! Patients are neglected, brought to doctors appointments in the winter with no coats, scarf or sweaters. No matter when you call & complain, they just pass it on to another person and that's the end of it! I call there very often for patients and it seems to get worse and worse. I wouldn't even leave a dead gold fish living there!!

I wholeheartedly agree with Lily Arango's review, this facility is absolutely terrible. It’s dirty, inhumane, and unsanitary for the patients unlucky to be spending any amount of time there. Worse for the elderly patients.I am so incredibly annoyed at the conditions where my brother is recuperating after surgery. When he sent me a video of mice in their hallways, I was gobsmacked. The New Jersey Department of Health really needs to look into this sad excuse of a "health care" facility. It disappoints and disheartens me to know that places like this "care" for the elderly and our loved ones.I expect nothing to come out of this review since, it seems, that no amount of justifiable complaining ever gets any real change done.I would desperately urge you to research another facility before letting a loved one stay at this disgraceful "health center". It does not even garner the one-star rating I had to give it.

This facility is terrible, do not trust them with your loved ones. It’s dirty and inhumane. If you complain, nothing is ever done. It reeks of fecal matter, it’s understaffed, and they would over medicate my grandmother to keep her sedated. Please look into other facilities for your loved ones.
