Since my Grandparent was admitted to Wantirna Health the experience for my grandparent and my family has been horrendous.
There seems to be utter incompetance in ensuring medications are administered - key medications have been missed on numerous occasions, causing pain and deterioration. I found a dangerous tablet on the floor, raised this with medical staff though it was completely brushed off.
Only a handful of staff have shown the care and compassion you would expect for someone at the end of their life. The remainder have been cold, uninterested or too busy.
Nurses are apparently too busy to take the time to communicate with my Grandparent who is unable to speak. We have to keep asking for personal care/hygiene assistance as they don't do it frequently enough.
If your loved one is considered "high needs", I feel that they want to completely sedate them for convenience rather than clinical reasons. This has been the case for my Grandparent and I have read other reviews about this approach from Wantirna Health.
A truly horrible and heartbreaking experience. In my opinion, Wantira Health is disgraceful.
