Patient Comments (2)
St Louis, MO |
Rude and no compassion what so ever. Staff is even worse. They treat older patients like they are disposable and push everyone to do hospice. No need to tell someone who knows that they are dying every two minutes that they will die. Definitely would not recommend taking your loved ones there.
