According to investigators, "the facility failed to meet the needs of three residents when there "recently was not enough staff and occasionally [the residents] had to wait for assistance." In one incident, a resident stated that "last night, the Aide was not aware she needed to be woken up and changed every two hours because she had a bad rash and her peri-area."
The resident stated that "she went to bed around 10:00 PM last night and was not changed again until around 6:00 AM. She said her brief was soaked and the bed was wet. She said the Aide was nice, but she was not told to wake her up during the night to change her."
