    My grandmother was in that nursing home in 2006 and they didn’t do anything for her. I honestly think if they would have done their jobs better she would have lived longer. I would visit her and she would say she hadent eaten all day and didn’t have her meds or anything and when you asked someone to get her anything they wouldn’t do it. I so wish I was able to sue that nursing home because they let her get so sick that she got rushed to the hospital and passed away before they could get her inside. That place is worthless and I think they need to get shut down and out of business.

    This is unacceptable and people should be fired! Starting with upper management and working down from there!

    I worked at that home back in 1996 and it was in way better shape than now I was a very good CNA and loved all my residents hope whoever needs to b punished gets what is coming to them the elderly depend on the CNAs to care for them without the good one its them who suffer. To many CNAs r going to work with less than 6 weeks of training I had 9 mths of training graduated 1984. These girls nowadays no nothing and put on the floor to handle patients and it’s not right they need way more training

    My husband’s aunt was at Wynnywood Care Center and she had multiple bed sore when she was in the hospital, before she passed away. They put she died of a heart attack and our lawyer said there was nothing we could do.

  5. Ron Null says:

    My wife was a resident of this facility for 2 years. She received good care for the most part. I am in agreement with you that being a frequent visitor makes a great difference. They knew I was going to be there twice a day. I DID have to report them to the State a couple of times but it was corrected to my satisfaction. Keep up the good work! !!!!
