In AMERICA, we eat AMERICAN FOOD. Anything else would be INSULTING, and sticking a FINGER IN THE EYE of the AMERICAN people. This means APPLE PIE, *******. Blue crabs! Corn on the cob! Hambergurs, with AMERICAN cheese! If people move here and want to eat food that's not AMERICAN, they should go to a country that actually eats that food.

many people speak spanish and other languages to each other on the job, "rude" or not.

did they speak english to you when you spoke to them?

In answer to your first question regarding reporting it to a supervisor, she was actually there as well. I reported it to the proper authorities, as I have been trained to do. It is law that anyone who works in the health care field must report abuses to a county department which investigates the abuses.

Regarding applying to work for a company which has already been reported for abuses...are you not aware that most care facilities of this type have been reported at one time or another for abuses against clients? Sadly, too many sick abusive people are attracted to a field where there are many potential victims for them. I managed a care facility where I was known as "The Terminator" because I was very, very good at weeding out abusers and making sure they were arrested.

So, what do you think would happen in these places if people like myself refused to apply for work based on the fact that they had previous citations for abuses? What would happen is that you would have nothing but abusive-type employees caring for the extremely vulnerable.

Did they speak English to me? Actually, they were so rude that not only did they not even say "hello" when introduced, they couldn't even offer a smile. That tells me exactly what type of atmosphere I would be working in. The only one who spoke English to me was the supervisor, and she was from India. All the employees were Hispanic.

But I'm content that my contact at the county department will be investigating this business.

I really can't believe the arrogance of those on this forum who truly believe that being in a situation where all of those around you speaking a language you don't understand couldn't be harmful, traumatic and frightening.

My father was in an Alzheimer's/Dementia residential care home here in California while I was living in England. His dementia at that time was low-level and he could still go out on his own. I, and my siblings, would get phone calls from him at night because he was upset that ALL of the employees on that shift spoke only Spanish. His needs were not being met because he could not communicate with them. He would speak to them and request help, but would be ignored. My siblings paid a personal visit at 9:00pm one night and found that dad was telling the truth. I phoned from England and found the same thing. I confronted the owner, who was Fillipino. By this time we were looking for a new place for dad. Finally, one night my dad asked this Mexican guy on the shift to help him find his watch. My dad became upset because the guy either couldn't understand, or pretended not to. Dad tried to grab the guy,s arm to pull him to his room and SHOW him what he wanted and this guy grabbed both of my father's arms and shoved him into a wall. Dad became frightened and ran out the door of the home, into the street, where he narrowly missed being hit by a big pickup truck. The kind young man in the truck phoned the police for dad, as well as my brother. This home was reported by all of us and lost its license. Three other residents also lodged complaints through their families.

My father was in his 80's and only knew English because it is the language of the United States. Was this fair or right, to cause such distress and harm to an elderly man, because foreigners to OUR country were too arrogant to learn OUR language?

A language is like a cat. Nobody owns one.

Actually, Sharia Law was being allowed in the UK at the time I moved from there back to the USA. As soon as the government approved it there was a spate of young Muslim women's dead bodies being found. Ah! The joys of multiculturalism!

I don't understand why. If there was a language that you'd want to teach, wouldn't it be the second most commonly spoken one in the country?

Well they should learn English and stop imposing their language on us.
You right

English doesn't take a degree.

Those lazy illegals
