General Staff Rating
Care Staff Rating
I used to work for this company and I can wholeheartedly say I was treated horribly. I have eczema and was teased immensely for it from nursing staff. They made a big deal about me having non powdered gloves. The words they used were “my hands looked like hamburger meat”. I wouldn’t send my pet to this place!
If I could give them a zero star I would they are nasty and don't communicate with each other one nurse gave her her medicine then an HR later another nurse tried giving her medicine again then she hallucinates bad with dementia and Parkinson's disease and said she was faking it and just looking for attention!!! This is the worse place ever we have pictures where they don't clean and it stays so nasty they are horrible
