Care In Nursing Homes

I have already started writing one post about the

"CARE IN NURSING HOMES" and as I said I
will be writing on this from time to time and as
much as I feel I need to and also from the feed back
I get from others out there on this subject!


As I have already written my mother is in a
nursing home and when we first put her in the
one she's in now it was REALLY A LIFE SAVER!


Because I had to transfer her from the very first one
she had to be put in and I am here to tell you IT WAS
SO AWFUL! "I WOULD NOT PUT A DEAD
ANIMAL IN THAT NURSING HOME MUCH LESS
MY WORST ENEMY!" (THIS IS GOD'S TRUTH!!!!)


With that being said, I do need to be HONEST about this
one she's in now. As I said when she first went there this
place was truly a life saver for her! Mother has now been
there going on two years and over the course of this time,
this nursing home has changed hands/companies. I know
nothing about the new people/company and have never
been offered any information on them, about them, from
them, or even met them!


This little and I do mean little/small nursing home has only
about 44/46 bed capacity I think it is. This is or was of the
best reasons my family and I really liked it, because you
could get to know the people and by that I mean not only
the nurses, aids, office personnel, resident/patience's,
Physical therapist but the house keeping staff, kitchen staff,
etc; and the other families (if they were so inclined).


This way you feel like you are doing everything you are able
to do for your family member that has to be in a nursing
facility of any type for any reason, you want to get to know
as many people as you can or are able so you can help with
one another for so many reasons but because it's the right
thing to do.


Well getting back to our little nursing home, as I said it
started off as a LIFE SAVER for mother, but over time it
has gone DOWN SEVERAL STEPS now compared to what
it use to be! They have always had problems with the kitchen
from day one that we brought mother in, do not know why,
can't understand why there has always been the problem of the
food always being late, 98% of the time it's cold! It's either not
cooked right, by that I mean it is not cooked all the way, or over
cooked, to tough, to hard, or just not eatable for most of the
residents there to eat! 98% of the residence complain about
the food 97% of the time but nothing gets done about it!


My dad and I have even complained several times and have
been told the problem was been worked on, but we have not
seen any thing fixed yet! (that's not to say the people
preparing the food aren't nice...they just can't COOK!)


They have a few nurses and med. aids that are there that do
know their job and how to do their job and actually like their
job (are they give a very good impression of it anyway). Then
they have a few that so not need to be nursing a DEAD FISH!
That DO NOT NEED TO BE THERE...THAT ARE THERE
BECAUSE THEY ARE A FRIEND TO SOME ONE THAT
WORKS THERE OR EVEN A FRIEND OF A FRIEND
THING! These people do not need to be there, they are very
disruptive, they think they run the whole show.


It will be done their way or not at all and the PAIN AND
STRESS, THE CHAOS, THE BACK STABBING, THE
LYING, THEY BRING IN WITH THEM IS SO UNREAL,
THEY NEED THEIR LICENSE REVOKED! THE VERY
UN - PROFESSIONALISM THAT WREAKS FROM
THESE PEOPLE IS SO WRONG, THEY ARE MASTER
MANIPULATORS AND INTIMIDATORS AND THEY USE
EVERY WEAPON THEY CAN GET THEIR HANDS
ON OR THEIR MOUTH AND WILL COME IN AND
LITERALLY DESTROY A PLACE IN NO TIME!


So as you can probably tell that is ONE OF THE big things
happening now where mother is at, this one particular so called
nurse has caused a mud-slide since she's been there and it has
caused a run away snow ball effect in several areas and people
are being HURT BY IT/HER!


Yes, there has been complaints on her and she is still there, guess
it's going to take going to the owners and the state of Texas to
get her out!

It's awful how when they get good people in there to
work, they will not keep most of them around very long, for some
reason, they had rather have the lazy, lying, ones that do not care
around instead of the the ones that are good, and the good people
that are there working and just keep hanging on are the ones that
need to be kept and treated a lot better than they are...these God
loving people work their butts off every day here and are not treated
as they should be. These God loving people honestly love these
residence/patience they help everyday, these God loving people
are sincere and caring, they do their jobs and don't just stand around
and see how they can hurt someone else.


I wish I could name names of the all of the GOOD ONES here
at this nursing home, but I can't or I won't at this point because
of this other person still being there and the real problems she
would love to cause for some of the ones I would name.


What is TRULY SO SAD IT WOULDN'T TAKE MUCH AT
ALL TO GET THIS PLACE TO A1 SHAPE, just get rid of the
trash, get someone in the kitchen that can cook right for the
residence there and what they can eat and it be hot and on time,
and keep the good people that they have left there and hire back
the ones they have lost.

Not every nursing home can say that...not every nursing home
can fix the biggest problems they have that quickly...not every
nursing home has these few problems! Not every nursing home
would have so many people going to bat for it at any given time!


There are nurses aids in all of the nursing home facilities that
come and go, they make the rounds to all of them especially in the
areas they live in. The reasons for this varies, but when you get
GOOD nurses aids, you need to do what you can to keep them,
because these type of people are very far and few between...they a
re a very RARE BREED! These loving people honestly love
what they do, they love caring for the elderly and they are
very good at it! We need more of these wonderful people
in this type of work, but they are not out there!


As I said they are few and far between!
