Long waits to get help.
My mother was a patient at this facility for approx 4 yrs. Just prior Christmas on this year (2014) we received a call that she "fell" during her shower and they sent her to the hospital. The Hospital MD found she had several rib fractures, a fractured clavicle, a black eye, and also found 2 fractured vertebrae that were partially healed (prior falls at same facility), and felt she would not survive. She died approx 1 week later from complications from the injuries. Patient safety apparently is not a priority at this facility. How you can get these kinds of injuries from a "fall" is very suspicious to say the least.
My Father is a current resident in this Home …..I visited him for a the month
of March into April 2014…., everyday helping about.
I believe this is a very decent place with a LOT of caring staff ….. many Christians even ! To me, this facility is above average a lot better than I expected. I feel most comfortable with him being cared for at this facility, and I left off my visit in peace, knowing he is in good-skilled hands…..My sister lives in Huron, so she is keeping me informed. No Problems, really,
other than the expected personal health issues of Old-age !
And I like and trust the Doctor assigned to him ….keeps good track of his
progress and decline. At , now, 90 years of age ..it a good place to finish
ones life on this Earth ! I praise the Lord for such people as this.
I cannot say enough GOOD about Bethesda Nursing Home of Beresford, They were wonderful to work with, and their care of our mother was outstanding! They made my mother so happy and she loved each and everyone of the staff and residents. Top Notch Facility, I highly Recommend them.
The staffing is poor. Resident's call lights aren't answered in a timely manner and a lady fell and broke her lag in two spots and had to be taken by ambulance to a near by hopistal and then flown out to another hosp to have the leg fixed. The lady had been on the call light for quite sometime and finally took herself to the restroom and fell. The charts are sometimes left wide open on the nurse station for all visitors to view. Staff talk about the residents and their diagnosis/prognosis at the local convenience store. The administrator would rather walk over top of the staff than talk with them. RN staffing is not sufficiant. There are to be an RN at least 8hrs everyday and they only have 1 RN on staff. There has been a lot of theft from the resident's by the staff. A residnet's errings were taken and a staff member showed up wearing them. Some staff come to work after they have been drinking and tell the younger residnet's all about this. The administrator hires people and puts them on the floor to care for the residents without proper training. And the list could go on and on. I would NOT put my loved ones or my worse enemies in this facility.
Care given to the residents is subpar. This is partially due to the fact that they are either understaffed or training new staff members. Tieszen Home has a high turnover rate due to the fact that they do not treat staff very well and they refuse to address the issues at hand. This high turnover costs them lots of money each year and ultimately affects the residents in a negative way.
I found this facility to be highly unsafe and would never admit a family member there again. I believe the staffing is way over burdened and would not recommend it to anyone.
The staff appears to be caring and attentive to the needs of the residents and their families. The one drawback I have noticed is that the call lights have a long response time especially during meals and bedtime. I believe they are understaffed on the nursing assistant side. The rehab department is awesome. The food is sometimes not very appetizing and I think they give the entrees creative names so the residents don't understand what they are getting or may not try something that may be good. I always felt I received a good response when I called with a question.
Someone at Southridge stole my mother's cell phone, which I pay for, from her room. Imagine my surprise when I called my mother and got "I'm Sexy and I Know it" as a ring-through. The woman who answered had the guts to tell me I had the wrong number.
The thief sent hundreds of text messages and made dozens of calls all through the phone she stole from my mother's room at Southridge.
Violet Tschetter Memorial home gives outstanding nursing care! The residents there receive assistance with anything they want to accomplish, including rehabilitative services, a wonderful nursing staff that works all hours to ensure safety, and activities everyday. The activities include church services, and are always changing based on desires of the residents. The nursing staff works very hard to make the patients feel comfortable. I am giving this facility 5 stars based on the care my family and friends have received there, which is a total of 4 people( who have specifically stated they are thoroughly cared for, and wish for others to consider VTMH for a long term care facility).
I have spent a lot of time at the home visiting and taking part in activities. From what I have observed, the staff is caring and compassionate, most of the time immediately responding to residents' needs. The administrator shows the best Christian attitude I have seen in many years. i have MS and use a walker to get around, and staff members at the home have been wonderful at making sure i can navigate the halls and have even offered a wheelchair if I seem to be getting tired. I believe the home exemplifies the slogan on the wall that makes the statement at at the home everyone is someone.
the only thing i have to say is they need to follow through on stuff like bringing water when they say so and say they always do things like that.
Thia place treats residents like cattle. Should be closed.
