NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I feel I must respond to your feature article on Jan. 19 regarding Edison Manor.
Between October 2010 and October 2012, my husband was a resident at Edison Manor on two separate occasions.
The first time the excellent care he received from all the staff rehabilitated him enough to come home. He was able to walk, to go up and down stairs and care for himself in five weeks — things he was unable to do beforehand.
The second time, in 2012, he was more ill and much weaker due to very serious health problems. He remained in Edison for a much longer period of time.
On each occasion, I was with him every day for most of the day and into the evening. I was able to see the quality of care he, and others near his room, were receiving. I can say without reservation that I could not have asked for him to receive more attention and comprehensive care.
At no time did he fail to receive any prescribed treatment or medication.
From the nurses and nursing assistants who tended to his daily needs in a professional and very kind and caring way, to the support staff in all areas of the facility, all who at one time or another interacted with my husband and myself or provided a needed service were wonderful to my husband and took excellent care of him. We could not have asked for better or more personal care.
In closing, I have to ask why, in the name of all that is good, would The News publish an article like that four years after the fact and four years after the problem was identified and immediately solved?
