The administrator who started in 2016 did not resolve a problem with a resident whose visiting wife/DPOA was abusing him emotionally & physically. He tolerated an atmosphere of hostility created by some of his staff. He did not ensure his staff followed visitation rulings by the Ombudsman. He did not ensure visitors were treated the way they should be. He did not use his legal department to protect the rights of the resident his facility was in charge of caring for.

This facility is a joke. PT does NOT encourage you to go further. They will not come back if your feeling ill. My mom had a ischemic stroke that left her paralyzed on the right side and once they started working with her and seen the severity they pretty much gave up on her. They would coach her on push her.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
