This facility has lost all of its integrity in the last 2 months(11-20 12-20). It is ran today as almost a communist set of rules. Also upon stopping social functions, the employees there, beside from one male nurse, do not want to do any work and actually plan what work they can leave for the shift coming in after them.
OH MY GOD!!! I don't have words to describe how sad and awful is that place. The AC is being broken for 2 days ,is so hot is not even funny! No maintenance during night time for a toilet that you can't flush! You turn the light for help and somebody came 45 min. After it was turn on !!!!!you look at the floors full of dirt on every corner.The list could continue but you need to go and see it for your self.The government needs to check this place out more frequently.
This afternoon I pushed the call nurse button no less than 20 times. My request was for due and overdue medication, medications to help w my pain. The pill was due hours ago. I desperately painfully walked down the hall looking for help. I kept getting “the nurse she busy too busy”. from the nurse aide or whomever occasionally passed thru. I sent out my first request at 6:15p.m.Ur more than welcome to contact me in person, a one on one sit down or a phone call.
UPDATE:Occasionally, medications are given on time, however, most of the time I wait several HOURS for “scheduled,” much needed medications!! I’m not sure as to y they even bother to give patients such ridiculous expectation as to receiving medication on time or even or even anywhere thereafter. The promise of a “schedule” isn’t going to hold up here @ Lakeside Oaks. I’ve needed and requested to speak w a physician however, that too is an impossible feat. I’ve had some personal effects (clothing) go missing and no matter whom I ask I always get “ok, I’ll tell someone”. I’ve even gone as far as writing a grievance letter but, to this day they’re still MIA. I’m told, “maybe on the next truck”. The facility itself is dirty and unkept, the food is 5 (on a scale of 10). A portion of the staff is kind. I’d like to thank some of the aids, a nurse and physical therapists. If I were in a position to have to find a care facility on a budget for someone I love and or care about, I’m pretty sure it would NOT b at Lakeside Oaks in Dunedin.UPDATE: After having spent over a week as a patient w/I Lakeside Oaks I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ESTABLISHMENT.
My Aunt has only been there for 1 week and it's impossible to reach her. No phones in rooms and 1 portable phone for the floor. When you call the portable phone a patient picks up and hangs up on you. Even when I finally get a nurse to get the portable phone, my Aunt has to be moved out of her room to get cell service. Very frustrating!
The 1st Impression is great. The Care Center is neat and clean and is kept up with very well. The staff here is super sweet and very personable and friendly. The main downfall for this nursing home is that they don't respond to your needs in a timely manner at all. Typically, if you are to ask an employee for something that you need, 9 times out of 10 they leave the room and never return with what you asked for. The food they serve isn't very good, definitely needs some improvement. Overal it is a decent place to stay and most of the employees seem like they genuinely care for the people staying here. Very laid back and comfortable enviroment. It's like a big family here!
I’ve been working at Lakeside Oaks for 3 years it’s a Great place to work The Atmosphere is getting better and We’re showing A lot more Team Work. I enjoy my Residents and co workers. Human Resource is Awesome and so is the staffing Coordinator . The Nurses help us a lot not afraid to get their hands dirty❤️💯👊🏽💪🏽
My adult son was in lakeside oaks for about 5weeks. Needed skilled nursing facility to receive IV antibiotics. It was a great experience. They took great care of him. They were awesome to me an my husband. I was there almost everyday. So, I saw day to day routines. Very friendly and helpful. I got to know several of the staff awesome, hard working people. Have so much patience caring for the elderly patients. I am so thankful for the time we were there. I will actually miss the staff. Feel like friends. I would highly recommend this place for yourself or loved ones. They are the best
