Letter: Nursing home transfer too late


Editor’s note: This letter is in response to an article about conditions and management at Green House Cottages of Carmel that ran in the Sept. 7 edition of Current in Carmel.


My husband was at Green House Cottages for seven weeks. What I witnessed there was horrific! I had to fight with them almost every day because of the poor quality of care. I was exhausted!

I could see my husband declining because of his care, or lack of. I went to a staff member and told her of my concerns, but nothing changed. I informed her that I was going to transfer him to Copper Trace. Her response was she wouldn’t blame me and that I should do that.

Unfortunately, it was too late, as his condition had declined too much. He was only at Copper Trace three days, and he passed away.
