    Going through harbreaking times

    Hello My name is Dashonda Barnett and my Grandmother's name is Edna Barnett. We are going through some very heart breaking times right now. My Grandfather Carl Barnett was recently in resting home called Grace Health Care of Phoenix Arizona. Located on 4202 North 20th Avenue Phoenix, AZ 85015. He was serverly neglected. He went to Grace Health care with just an wound on his right hip to be taking care of. Everyday that we went up to Grace Health care to visit his room was all ways dirty. He would be on the edge of the bed bout to fall off. My grandfather lost a lot of weight. He would tell me and my grand mother that he didn't want to be in there that the doctors/nurses was being to rough with him. he said that they would just come in and yank on him. He said that they hands felt like sand paper. They would force feed my grandfather his pills in a yougert that made his stomach hurt badly. We would complained to them but they didn't care. One incident my grandmother noticed that his urine was a dark color and she said that he must have an infection in his bladder. My grandmother use to be a nurses aid for 22 years. She told the male nurse and he preceded to pick up the urine bag and said that nothing was wrong with it. My grandfather was serverly dehydrated. His lips was very chopped. I would go up to Grace Health Care everyday after school. I would wait for hours for a nurse or doctor to come in and check on him. The doctors only seem to come in when I go to the nurses desk to complain. Because of the wound on my grandfathers hip he was supposed to be turned every 2 hours, But that didn't happen. By this time we didn't know that he had two new wounds. The wounds was beginning to smell. We were not notified that he had new wounds until he was rushed to MMC. He was rushed to MMC from an wound appointment that we were not notified that he had. My aunt went to see my grandfather early that day on 11/21/2013. She waited in his room for 15 mins waiting for my grandfather thinking he was just somewhere taking cat scans in the building. After 15 mins past my aunt went up to the nurse desk and ask where my grandfather was at. the nurse didn't want to give my aunt an answer. The nurse called the social worker at the nursing home to come and talk to my aunt. The social worker told my aunt (Don't get upset but your father was rushed to MMC from The wound Clinic). There is so much more I would like to tell you. PLEASE CONTACT ME AT 623-873-0364 OR AT 602-299-1824. I DONT WANT WHAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH TO HAPPEN TO SOMEONE ELES. PLEASE CONTACT ME SO YOU CAN HEAR THE REST OF OUR HEART BREAK STORY.
