My brother had to go into Rock River Nursing Home on 10-2-19 for 2 weeks of physical therapy since he became too weak to care for himself from struggling with radiation, chemo and diabetes. His insurance will only pay for 2 weeks. So hoping my brother who is only 59 years old can get the therapy he needs to get stronger. The room they put him in is unbelievable for a place that charges almost $7000.00 a month. Paint is pealing, drywall bubbling in several places. If I gave you a size of the pealing pain and bubbling drywall, it would probably total a 4 foot by 4 foot section. There are no curtains or blinds with an apartment complex outside his window and the windows are filthy. He shares a bathroom with the guy next to his room. The first night we were there, there was ***** splattered all over the toilet. The next night it was still that way. The next day it was cleaned but half assed as there was still some of the splattered ***** there. The second night my brother was there he was actually served frozen tater tots and a RAW hamburger. The nurse refused to let my brother keep his door shut. No curtains or blinds for any privacy on the window side and has to keep his door wide open. No privacy. Went to river side home friday and brought the supervisor to his room and asked about curtains or blinds, he promised me they would get put up that day. This is now Wednesday, and still no curtains. Asked him why he has to keep the door open, he told me he can have it shut if he wants. Now his door stays shut. Told him about the frozen food. He said something would be done about that, but was given the excuse that they feed a lot of people so it could have been overlooked. Out of 5 days, my brother has only had 3 meals worth eating. I've been having to bring him food. From what I've seen of the food it looks like they are spending $5.00 on the making of breakfast, lunch and dinner combined in a day. Out of a bill of almost $7000.00 a month per resident, you would think they could spend more Than $150.00 a month on food. It wouldn't cost that much more to make the meals healthier or tastier. I've seen nothing healthy or nutritious this past week. I've seen nothing but low cost, low quality meals. It's been getting into the 40's a few nights this week and they still have not turned on the heat. I had to go to the store on 10-3-19 and buy my brother a space heater and a heated blanket, just so he could stay warm. Today 10-8-19 they say he has to take them out of his room. Tonight it's getting down to 48 degrees outside and they won't turn the heat on for a couple more days! My brother has been pretty sick with cancer and diabetes for over 1 1/2 years, his circulation is very bad, he is down to 115 pounds. He should weigh a trim 165 for his size and get very cold easily because of his health. This is a nursing home, elderly people especially like warmer rooms to be comfortable. I couldn't imagine having to keep anyone you love in this situation. I feel for the poor people who have to continue living like this. Our elderly and sick people deserve much better than this. My brother is there to get physical therapy. Their physical therapy room sucks. Has one exercise machine and nothing else and they still haven't done any physical therapy except having him walk down the hall with a walker. He can do that at home! I had to go buy my brother a toilet seat riser, because they don't have any. Anyone who is old or weak could benefit from having a riser in this place since the toilets are all out dated and short enough for a child. If I didn't know any better I would call this a children's home. But it's not even fit for a child or anyone. So far from what I've seen with the peeling pain, bubbled up drywall, filthy toilets, frozen food, no curtains or blinds, this place should be shut down.
