Poor training for new graduates. Loose electrical sockets, chipped paint, poor attitudes. Residents not having water within hands reach at all times. Patients overmedicated. RN/LPN shortage, old workers with a lot of negative and hostile behaviors, patient neglect...worse place to work of the many nursing homes in Florida.....At 55 p;us residents. Activity room accomthe people needing assistance with feeding were not helped. Not enough room in dininig room for the residents, the activity room accommodated approximately 15-20 residents, leaving many without activities...Many resident complained Physical therapy was painful, a Unit Manager who did not show up for her job one third of the time, a Direcotor whose first words out of her mouth were, "I could fire you" always threatening and hostile to staff,.
