September 2018
The staff care is great. The therapists did a good job with my mother. We had a couple issues with the night nurses and the administrator took care of it right then and there. They let me know every mark or sore she got. They called me and told me everything, and their communication was great. The staff are always cleaning. It is one of the cleanest nursing homes ever seen and they have a good reputation. The meals were good and they were very accommodating to her. The nursing care was good. A couple night nurses were rude to her, the 1st and 2nd shifts were good to her.

They have a great activities department and that is so important. The staffing is above average based on what they told me in the interview and I do not see any problems. I think the therapy is very good. I talked with the therapist. I like the nurse and she encourages her to eat. She communicates well and is easy to talk to. The staff were really busy but they are very attentive. It is very clean and no dust bunnies. The bathrooms are always clean.

The therapists are enthusiastic, positive, and working with my mom. The occupational therapy is not is as important. I would rather see the regular therapy for walking. They are very friendly and positive but it is not perfect. There are times she is tired and wants in her bed and gets left in wheelchair. The longer you are there, the less they pay attention to you. My mother seems to like the food.

She was well taken care of and taken to the sun rooms. She liked the rehab. From what I saw the nurses did their job. She was satisfied. The lady at the front office admissions communicated really well. They served meals frequently and on time.

It has been great. The office communicates really well. The environment workers do well and it is well run. So far this is way better than any other rehab. They did more in one day than they did in one week at the other facility. I appreciate all of the staff. It is very clean. It is nice to see things kept up and orderly. She said the meals are good.

My mother really likes the staff there. She never said anything negative about the staff. I think it is pretty good. If I had a question they answered me. It seems pretty clean. She was a little unhappy with the food, there's no flavor.

All of the staff were nice. I was happy with the nursing care but not happy with the coordination between the PT and the nursing department. The therapy people were good. However my dad was in bed most of the time and the nurses didn't encourage him to get out of bed. The staff did call and did help when we needed anything.

The staff care was pretty good. I like the admissions director. The nurses were pretty good but there were not enough of them. The lady at the front desk always smiled and the staff were all good. Some were a little cranky. The therapists did not help enough. I was not real happy and they let my mother sit too much. They would not let her walk around and her legs were swollen. My mother said the food was edible though and I did not see any dirt around.

So far we are pleased with our experience at Windber Woods! The only concern we have had so far we voiced and the issue has since been addressed. Our concern pertained to one of the nurses not delivering her medication on time however it has improved. The staff is very professional! The facility is very clean!

There are few nurses that are really special that take time and talk to you from the heart. However when you press the call button you need a nurse to be there to help you. The staff are all friendly. I don't think they push my husband hard enough in rehab. If he says he is tired they say okay. I don't want him to give up. Their communication is very good. They call and keep me updated.

Everything was great. Windber Woods was very good and they did everything possible that they could do. They did a good job with therapy and my wife participated real good. Everybody took care of everyone there professionally like they should. Everything was excellent and everybody did their job. The people I asked for help did not always know how to help and had to have someone else to help. I wondered why did you answer the bell to say you are not allowed to help.

One nurse was excellent but other than that they couldn't care less. I lost a week of rehab. They made a feeble attempt and the rehab staff was nice. I signed myself out. It was dirty. The staff disrespected and treated my roommate badly. Oatmeal was so cold you could slice it in chunks . No protein, and no paid nutritionist.

The nurses are great and very helpful. The food is not good and there is never hot water in her bathroom. I think they could keep it a little cleaner. Today she had a toasted cheese sandwich and it was burnt so she could not eat it.

Mom liked the meals. She has issues not being able to walk on her own. They were not moving her or paying attention to her. She was always in bed or a jerry chair and not much interaction with other patients. It is an older facility but clean.

They were accommodating. They do have do have a conscientious staff and it's a nice setting there. The building is warm and welcoming. They did try to deal with my wife's needs. If you need to speak to somebody you could. In some ways they were accommodating to my wife and her needs, and in other ways they were not. I was also disappointed that there was no communication to the other facility she was at. The nurses are fine. They follow doctors orders as they should. I never saw the nurses aides offering her water. It was mixed. Some are very friendly and others were quick to get an attitude.

The nurses and aides were just wonderful with my dad. There were times when staffing was short and slow. For the most part they took care of him and he recovered quickly. The therapy was excellent and they had him up and walking. It was intense and hard on him but they got him up and moving right away. He was doing exercises the second day he was there.There was a nurse and cannot remember her name and she worked during the day and she is from a different country with black hair. She would joke with my dad and talk with us. They kept in touch with us and made sure we knew what is going on. They were all very helpful with talking with us about his care.

They have been terrific! They are short handed but so kind to the residents. It really takes a special person to do that. The person in admissions I spoke with was very helpful she did a nice job.

Most of the nurses were good and the meals were not bad at all. The staff care was not good though. Whenever I ask for something they say "yeah, lemme check on that" and then they never come back. They only gave one shower per week, per patient and I need a shower more than once a week. They had a work crew in there for remodeling and the place was dirty. They were sanding the walls and all of that that came into my room and there were no air filters. My son addressed my concerns with the staff when he visited me. For a couple of days, I didn't receive one of my medications. When I asked about it the first day, they said that it wasn't in the information they got from the hospital.

Windber Woods is a very clean facility! Naturally, it is very hard to get used to a pureed food diet, however, he has not complained about it so I am assuming it is tasting good to him. You do not get too much information back from the people who care for him, but if he is doing well they say he is doing well. As far as communication there is room for improvement. The only problem is the nurses are inundated with so much that they cannot always get to you what you are asking for at the time.

I definitely would recommend this facility! The only problem I have is the parking. You are so far from the actual doors. He thinks the rehab therapists should be doing more. He seems satisfied now. One night, one girl talked with him and brought him a radio. He likes country music. Any questions I have they are glad to answer. When I call, the nurses are so helpful. I could not get over how great it is. Everything is so nice. He seems satisfied with the meals. He gets ice cream at night.

They have done a decent job and they are all wonderful with no complaints. Communications with rehab therapy are not up front and there is an insurance process. I do not know how to judge it. Every time I have been there she has had accidents but they do help and clean her. They are understaffed and the management is going through a transition. The nurses are fine. I have no complaints about the cleanliness. Communication has been confusing and it is not their fault.
