The Administrator of this facility is currently the administrator at Avante at Wilkesboro. I have personally worked at Avante and can say that it seems to be following in the same footsteps as Forest View. We (staff members) have made numerous complaints to the Administrator but it seems as though they are not taken seriously. By complaints i'm referring equipment not in working order,unsanitary conditions,and also many state regulations not being fufilled. i can honestly say that I believe all of these things were made aware to the Administrator since he seems to be just as careless now as he was at Forest View. He often replies to these with "its not in the budget" for everything from needing housekeeping supplies to dish washing liquid. At one time staff were made to wash residents dishes in Tide! As far as the residents are concerned there are many dedicated staff but not enough complying with state law which the administrator knows all about. I believe that all companies want a strong leader to reinforce there business and who can keep cost down,however they don't want someone cutting the budget so much that it is considered neglect or abuse! Also I have noticed that when certain staff question whats going on in the facility or refuse to cover up whats really going on they get fired shortly thereafter. He didn't learn his lesson from Forest View and is currently following in the same footsteps now. I can't believe that anyone would trust him to run another facility anywhere and am appalled that he still seems to think there is nothing wrong with running a nursing home in this manner.
