feedback about Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital
My grandmother was recently at Levindale for medication adjustment for Alzheimer’s. While there my mother expressed concerns that my grandmother was always sleeping and/or unable to stay awake for any length of time, but told my grandmother was fine. When she was picked up to go home her feet and ankles were so swollen she could hardly fit her shoes on her feet, when my mother voiced her concern she was told to elevate her feet. On their way home they stopped at the pharmacy to pick up the prescriptions prescribed by the hospital staff, and the pharmacist hesitated to fill the order until she spoke with my mother expressing her concerns regarding the prescriptions given to my grandmother. When they arrived at my grandmothers home she was able to get her into the house, where she slept all day in the chair. That evening my aunt was able to get her in the bed and woke her up in the morning to get breakfast and give her the medicine. However, as the day progressed my grandmother continued to sleep and was unable to stay awake for any length of time. In the late afternoon 911 was called and my grandmother was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in the lung and one in the leg, she was placed on oxygen, a heart monitor and medicine to remove the excess fluid. My hope is that no other patient endures what my grandmother endured at that facility. ( It has been eight days since my grandmother left Levindale and she is still in the hospital recovering.)
The staff was so very nice. Quite attentive and caring. Liked to joke around with our mother to let her feel "normal" as possible. The social workers there are AMAZING I'm very glad she was placed here.
My dad was admitted a few weeks ago with severe Alzheimer’s and was suffering from very bad agitation and anxiety. They have helped figure out a great medicine regime to calm him down and help him relax. All the staff have been nothing but kind and helpful whenever I have a question. Although he cannot be cured, Levindale has done everything they can to help him and make sure he is comfortable. I appreciate all of the staff there and haven’t had one bad encounter.
My family highly recommends Levindale for the care of your senior family members. The staff is great and very attentive to the needs of our sister. The diagnosis and care has been spot on. The admissions department worked with us to get her in and made the paperwork process so easy. The doctors are excellent and when you call for a nurse you get immediate assistance. A special recognition to the social workers and activities coordinators who encouraged our sister to get involved and stay as active as she can. A very special thank you to the staff of Burke 1 for their professionalism and bedside manner. They made us feel like our sister was part of a family. We don't worry about her care when we are not there. We knew she is in good hands. I highly recommend Levindale and rate them as a top of the line nursing facility.
My sister was completely neglected at this facility. The nursing staff failed to supervise her. I found her medications in her pocketbook. She had three falls. She torn off her toenails and fingernails. She was untreated until I complained. She had bronchitis twice. Untreated until I complained. A fungus under her breasts. She stopped eating their food. Sitting in a heavy soaked diaper with a puddle of urine under her wheelchair. This place is a mismanaged mess. Leslie Peticord cannot manage this nursing staff. Desiree Erdman is unable to manage the complains or fix the problems and issues.
