    I was in this facility June 2012. I’d had my large intestine removed 3/?/2012 & was in a coma for 30 days. I was transferred to CMC for a month; then to Lake Park. I was glad I was mostly in my right mind. I had to make certain of my care. The majority of my time there was okay. One night, I could not eat what was on the 6ish tray; had told the CNA to get me 2 pimento cheese or whatever was on hand; at 8, I still had no food; a visitor for another patient had just popped her head in to be kind; she kept waiting for me to get food, She offered to go to McD to get me something. I don’t remember what I finally got but do remember it was almost 9. Then the lady left. I was wearing “depends” and had no control over my bladder; I learned to take everything off the bed to get fresh sheets; I was told my days to get a bedding change was Tues & Fri. It did not stop me from removing the wet sheets. I did get “depends” changed; generally, it took more than one request. 3 nurses were very good. The CNA’s would say they had different levels of the care they were allowed to provide. Lou, lower body therapist, pushed me hard for exercise. I told her that having 1/2 my gut out was different than dealing with a broken arm. One day, my left leg felt different. Lou said I was just trying to get out of therapy. I told the good nurse; she got the test which showed I had a blood clot. Lou was at a new facility which I went to 12/2015. I nearly fainted when she entered. I’d had 23 staples gall bladder surgery. I learned that these care facilities, you’d better have a good mind and a family member.
