Elness is by far the worst. They keep their patients so knocked out on meds it's more like Psychiatric crazy ward. I witnessed my Mother inlaw fall last week. The LVNs were of no help.. I had to beg them to call a Doctor. Then had to insist she be taken to emergency!! I was told by the EMT's it would be in her best interest to locate a better nursing home. Which we are in the process of doing.
The Director Don Wellner had the audacity to try to blame me for her fall. He was extremely defensive when I noted that my mother in~law in her lethargic state should not at anytime be allowed to walk to the bathroom unattended.
He looked at his staff and asked if she always went to the bathroom with out assistance.. One of the LVn's said absolutely NOT! The other one said yes!! So who are we to believe? The staff was also reprimanded by the EMT that was attending to her for lying to my Mother inlaw.. Please do not place your loved one in Elness… There are many other time I witnessed improper care.. I will post more later.. I urge all who read this to PLEASE do research before you make a decision on a care facility..
