Went to visit my aunt on 3 occasions and This place is horrific rude staff and unprofessional I
stood at the desk for several minutes while the receptionist tending to her horrible weave and
personal phone call. i must have disturbed her meal time as she opened her mouth and brocolli was
stuck in her teeth. yuk!! The food is trash the nurses are very lazy. The front desk appears to be a
common gathering location for all of the lazy employees to gather and party during work hours.
There are a few nice people Ms. Yolanda the kitchen staff and the night watchman this place need
fire its staff and recruit some caring caretakers and professional

Though everyplace has its flaws. Bushwick center is one of the most caring and dedicated nursing
homes. Yes, there are a few bad apples but don't let them spoil the bunch. Social service staff is
professional and helpful. Always willing to listen and help. Social workers answer call bells, bring
ice, feed residents, help then with their clothes. Bushwick center is a nice place. I love my social
worker. The receptionist is the best, helpful polite, courteous, professional.

By the way, Jdaisy post on 8/7/12 is total lie: the social workers are the most lacking in
articulation. It is easier to feed the patient then acquire and retain real resources that can
mobilize continuity of care for the patients entrusted in their care. I am sorry, but they are so
generic, close to dumb: test it by asking them something out of the box, and see how their response
lack in intelligence and are non-resourceful.
