Not impressed at all. They seem to be very incompetent. Left hand has No clue as to what the right hand doing. Misinformation given by different staff members. Also they are real good at losing personal belongings. Not trustworthy at all.FnL was admitted for some rehab due to Fx of hip. After about 5 days there, they released him to return to memory care unit (Alzheimers). He was no where ready to return, rehab was shortened and info as to his condition was incorrect. Memory care unit now sending him back to rehab, but not Katherines. We don't trust them now as we feel they lied to us on his condition. As for his personal belongings, clothes and such, GONE. They have no idea where his things are, about $40 worth of clothes misplaced/lost.
This place is rude and not concerned about the people staying here. Please watch your loved ones. And be a voice for the ones who don’t have one. Because the don’t. They have no problem being rude and talking to residents/ patients as if they aren’t worth the time. Quoted by short term resident for rehab ( that hasn’t happened. Been left in bed) “this is hell”
Dayshift nurse on hall 300 has no apparent concern over the new arrivals IMO. The first day Mom was transferred to the facility from Circle of Life Hospice care she failed to care for my Mom. The aide only came after I screamed Mom was throwing up from being jostled from the transition. He got the trash sack which had dirty gloves in it put it to my moms mouth and then left her with puke running down her face and the Head nurse NEVER got off her BUTT to answer the call light. I went directly to Administration and the Director over Nursing and they IMMEDIATELY came into the area and took charge. The remainder of the day went fairly well, but , now the nurse has apparent issues against this dying women who still has her right mind NO DEMENTIA just Terminal Bone Cancer which has made her bedfast so she cannot defend herself against this spiteful woman! She said my Mom spit her meds at her yesterday 5/3/2018. For starters My Mom is dying with terminal bone cancer her mouth stays so dry she could not spit if her life depended on it, she cannot ask for water so they do not go offer her a drink unless it'.s med time. She will not give the med as directed by HOSPICE! Giving her liquid morphine which makes Mom irritable and agitated, she should be giving it pill form with Xanax and zofran as we have been doing some time now keeps Mom comfortable and safe in her last days. Visiting last nite after dayshift nurse had treated Mother, she was beside herself talking how the woman had treated her bad! She had no covers on, her gown half off, legs hanging out of the bed, no water anywhere. I was furious! This should be a place of comfort in her last days so today I will be speaking to Administration AGAIN! I heard the weekend nurse is even worse so that's not gonna work I will just move Mom back home even though I'm in a wheelchair I can at least give her medicine in the right manner and make sure she has water to drink and keep her comfortable. I may not be able to shift her but she will at least have loving CARE!
I wouldn't recommend this place at all the administration to supervisor if you working in housekeeping,that's not the job for you , don't nobody cares how hard you work they all about themselves and who you know if they like you or don't they only look out for themselves talks about everything and everyone not concerned about your safety I wouldn't want to work for some one who talks about her whole crew that's not perfessional u can take it to the front they will not do anything for you. Yes I've seen some resident in bad shape and you got some cnas who don't care.worst place I ever worked.
My mother is in this facility and they are rude to patients except a few of the nurses they cuss they aren't giving patients pain meds when they are in pain its ridiculous the nurses give this place a bad name its a beautiful facility just needs staff that care for the patients
Horrible horrible place to work or send loved ones!!! Worked there for a few years administrator only looks out for herself... she gave employees who wrote good reviews on here hundred dollar gift cards. They over work there staff play favorites and don’t take care of residents or there needs....place is a joke and should be shut down. Fake reviews are Kelly szoua, Sabrina and ray durisseau, cristal Murphy, Dena Dutton, misty Sulfridge, Catherine wunder. Also admin had employees make fake accounts to write good reviews!
I dont even give them one star. Only had to to b able to weight this review. 2 weeks ago they let my wife's mother leave their facility with a dangerous woman who they had only seen couple times they let this lady check her out with all her belongings and was suppose to have someone follow them to the house to make sure it was ligit noone followed them my wifes mother was taken to a motel where she was starved not given her meds and couple days ago was found dead in this motel alone. Had Katherine's place contacted a family member on her list like they were suppose to she would be alive and ok. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE FOR A VISHIOUS DOG MUCH LESS A LOVED ONE. PLEASE THINK TWICE ABOUT PUTTING UR LOVED ONE HERE TO B CARED FOR.
A lot of Google reviews on here are fake from staff members. It's funny that the DON endorses herself on here! I worked here for a few years. Not much has changed. Staff is over-worked and under paid. The retention of staff is terrible! State is in and out of this building frequently. This building has been tagged multiple times. I observed this facility hurt it's clients while slowly breaking down and burning out multiple staff members. I choose not to list my name in this review for fear of retaliation. The administration at Katherine's promotes people to positions who are under-qualified. While over a short time period, rapidly firing those people. Often, staff members that are hired are questionable. Employees aren't drug tested to save on expense. Patients are generally struggling to have their basic needs met. Often, they lose 20-40 lbs while staying here for rehab, due to poor food quality. Long term residents also struggle throughout their final days to have their needs met. For these long-term patients, this facility is their home. The high staff turn-over can be hard on their morale, as staff members often become like family. Resources are limited here, with patients not being provided portable oxygen tanks as needed, or running out of briefs or peri-wipes. Staff members are so busy that rooms aren't stocked with gloves causing standardized precautions to not be followed. Supply closets are quite often barren. Rooms are generally very messy with trash strewn about, and bedsheets not being changed for weeks at a time.
I am a resident yet and I couldn't ask for better care. The nurses are very Cain they are very busy but try there hardest to take good .Care of us. If at any time you have an issue they are there to help. I have been here for almost 4 months and they are very family friendly. I stay in my room but they have plenty of activities to join in. The nurses are very attentive. At first when got here i was afraid but that fear soon went away Thanks to the staff here. This is my final resting place and I would recommend Katherine's Place to anyone looking for long term or short term care. They have an excellent rehab facility. Happy I am here .
Staff is good but upper management is terrible. The administrator doesn't care about the residents, only about getting payment. Staff is overworked and underpaid. Looking through these other reviews it's clear they made their employees leave 5 star reviews to up their rating.
