I would never leave anyone That is very close to me or a family member there in the hands of Bishop Drumm employees. They do not take care of their residents! You know when A family member feels alone...well they are while they are staying at Bishop Drumm Retirement Center. I would never leave my mother or my father there. The staff is Rude, Uncaring , and does not care! So please decide if that would be a place for someone you love. What if it was you and you were in their shoes you would understand what I why I am opinionated and cocerned.

We witnessed our mother fall when we were outside her window (due to Covid restrictions). We called them and it took 20 minutes for them to get to her room. I noticed signs of a UTI on a Monday. They refused to have this checked. Looking back through photos and videos from our window visit I noticed her catheter was wadded under her yoga pants in her crouch area (unable to drain) We were going to have her removed from this skilled nursing Wednesday at 8AM. Before we could, they called just before 6 AM that she was found unresponsive and taken by EMS to the hospital. She was septic from a UTI which caused a seizure.We later found out she had removed her own catheter. She was in the ICU for several days. She fought hard after this downward spiral until we lost her in 2 months later.

Bishop Drumm should get a negative rating but that is not available. My parent is a resident at Bishop Drumm. During a recent visit we observed call lights on for over an hour for 2 residents without staff response. My parent wears the same clothes three days perhaps more. Their hair is never combed or face washed. Same caked on food on face for three days! They are left isolated in their room each day ; fully inclined in a chair they cannot independently operate for durations exceeding 4 hours without a position change; using this chair as a physical restraint, they had no water within reach, the call light was unavailable, their first pair of hearing aides are missing, one of their replacement hearing aides are missing also, I observed unsafe transfers, lack of hand washing by staff after toileting a resident, improper use of assistive devices; aides pushing residents in wheelchair without foot supports allowing their feet to drag. My parent expressed that they was unable to cut up her food; No assistance was provided by dining room staff. No current plan of care was available from nursing staff. The skilled therapy services they received at this facility was extremely disappointing. There is limited therapy staff & equipment available at this site. Inflexible therapy treatment plan despite inadequate goal progression. After therapy was discontinued my parent has experienced a significant decline in their functional mobility yet it appears that nursing staff have made no referral for skilled therapy services.
