Day 77 – Well the laundry was still outside this morning, no surprise here since it was midnight last night when I took the picture of the laundry outside.
Not too long after the picture above was taken then a new laundry company pulled up to finally pick up the laundry that was outside for 24 hours.
I just hope that now the residents have clean linens so that they can remain clean and dry in their beds.
Today we heard from a family member some rather disturbing updates of the quality inside the nursing home. I am just going to list them here the way they were told to us and you can form your own opinions about it.
- No clean linens on the floors. The resident’s relative is sleeping on dirty linen.
- The supplemental feeding containers went from 438 calories to 300, with no increase in volume.
- The resident’s relative has reported that he saw the Health Inspector once and they go right into the office and review files. Actually we have heard that from others as well.
- The resident’s relative reports that the floors are not washed.
- The resident’s relative reports that there are signs inside that state: Helen We Love You.
In a comment on yesterdays post someone said that the administration of the nursing home does not appear to be acting rationally or responsibly, it is obvious that there is something disturbing going on inside as the administrator has lots of cameras trained on the strikers, bright lights for the cameras, and massive amounts of security guards. Not to mention that Helen herself has been bunkered down inside the nursing home for the 77 days of the strike, leaving only occasionally. She hasn’t used her personal car for the 77 days of the strike as it has been parked in the front parking lot since the start of the strike on February 20. Is this rational in your opinion?
Why does it appear to everyone around us that something is wrong here, but the department of health doesn’t see anything wrong?
If you visit the nursing home and see anything out of the norm, please don’t hesitate to call the complaint hotline at 1-888-201-4563.
Till tomorrow, STAND STRONG!
