The rehab portion is great - carrying people who want to help. The general care of the patients is horrible. When the patient cannot get up on their own, the aide/nurse {anybody} response time could be up to 30 minutes (they aren't even aware if the patient is in acute distress yet and will take their time coming). They just leave the patient's meals in front of them, not even checking if they can open them or cut their food etc. They don't follow directions on critical medication (ie taking on an empty stomach - even after being told the requirements). For specialty meds supplied by the patients family, they neglected to inform the family that they ran out (cancer meds!). As a result of their lack of care, the patient had a fall, and family wasn't even notified! It has gotten so bad, that we have hired someone to stay with him and do their job for them.

My Mother has been in this facility for more than 3 weeks and has finally been discharged yeserday. Rehab therapists were very good. The nurses can't be bothered at all; most of them have attitudes. Kitchen Management and servers are the most incompetant people I had to associate with. All meals were wrong and they couldn't care less what patients ate. Please do not put your loved one in that facility because you will transfer them to another one by the next day. I would rate Merwick less that 1 star if it was available.

I have been a patient back in February with a broken ankle. I for one can honestly say without a doubt that your physical & occupational rehab have done an excellent job and deserve a raise, they work hard, and above the call of duty. The kindess they have shown to me I will never forget. Thank you for reading my message, it is well worth it.

Place is not clean. Food is unbalanced. Patient needs to wait for so long for an aide or a nurse. Some aides should not be doing that kind of service, because they do not have a the ability / heart in. I have seen them pull, push and stepped on patient's foot. Especially the long term care unit need to get their act to gather. Some of these patients are in need of help form an aide most of time. Management must screen who there are hiring.

Stay away!! They take about 45 minutes for call bells. Tested this 3 times. They have some really lazy aides that are also uncaring and incompetent.,. Not enough supplies. Food is terrible. Run from this place as fast as possible. They also never follow though with anything. They tell you they will do something and it never gets done. Take this place off of your list when comparing different places. Administration also lies as does most of the different heads of departments.

This is not the same Merwick that was owned by Princeton hospital. This is completely new owners . Do not confuse the two. Stay away from the new ones!!

Horrible! Can't contact a patient after MULTIPLE MULTIPLE tries! Ridiculous!! I can't believe how horrible the communication is at this place. DO NOT allow your loved one to be admitted here.

My husband is currently a resident at Merwick and what I have observed are the following: Cons Too many patients for "ONE" aide Call bells not answered promptly - sometimes patients have gone on themselves Nurses seem to be unaware of their patients conditions. They are there to dispense medicine but not able to give quality care. Nurses don't keep their word to speak to patients doctors about their patients needs. Therefore nothing gets done and patient conditions deteriorates. You can only get things done through the Head Nurse only. Therapy is mid-range. Pros Clean facility - the maintenance staff is doing their job. Food is quite good compared to other facilities and family can order one guest tray. Many festivities/activities. Really good aides - my husband has been blessed to have aides that truly care for him and go above and beyond their call of duty. However, there are only a few of them in this facility. So it's best to keep a very close eye on your loved one.

My mother is currently at Merwick, recuperationg from an illness and we have found the nursing staff to be caring and responsive to my mother's needs. The physical and occupational therapy is excellent. I would highly recommend this facility.

I am dissapointed in the service my husband is receiving at Merwick. Its a beautiful facility but the staff there is incompetent, lazy and makes too many mistakes. The mistakes range from the wrong food, i.e. sweets on his tray when he is a diabetic, red meat when he is a vegetarian, someone not assisting him to the bathroom because she had to go on break! The list goes on and on.....its sad to say, but the few who are good there are being grouped with the incompetent.... I hope that this new facility gets its act together soon because it can be a nice place of respite for the rehabilitating people!

This facility operates like it is still in the training phase. Many of the staff (including professionals) are confused and disorganized, and often oblivious to residents (patients). Food quality is inconsistent; sometimes brought food from outside for my loved one. Not impressed with nursing care which was often disinterested. Wouldn't recommend at this time. 4/2011.
