Re: “2016 VESTA Home Show

The homes were great. My mom, however did experience a fall on her way to our car on the property of the Vesta home show this year on 10/08/16. Something got stuck on her under her shoe and she fell and hit the ground. Two guys that were on a golf cart that worked on the property immediately stop their golf cart and jumped out to help her up. After we helped her up and asked if she was okay, we proceeded to look and see what made her fall. After searching, we saw a piece of wood stucking out of the ground. No, we did not report the incident, we just helped her up got her dusted off, I prayed over her and we left the property. However my mom did start experiencing some pain a couple of days later. She hit the ground prettyhard and as she ame down on her hand (tryig to stop her fall) and hi her back as she flipped over.I called to report the incident and was told by Lorrie that Don Glays, the executive director, would give us a call back. He did call back that same day. He asked questions about the incident and asked report it and we stated that we did not report it. We told him what happened and told him that the guys had helped my mom off the ground when they saw her fall. He said that he had spoken with one of the guys that helped her up. He also asked if my mom was retired or working or if she had been to the doctor. I told him that she was currently at the doctor as he and I were speaking. He stated that he would write up an incident report when he returned to the office on Monday morning which was yesterday (10/17/16). He also stated at the end of our conversation that let him know what the doctor prescribes orders for my mom and proceeded to give me his full name and his cell phone number. He stated that he hoped my mom felt better and that he was sorry that that had happened. I said that I would give him until about noon not yesterday to see if the email had come through. I decided to call him around 2:40 p.m. on yesterday October 17th 2016 because the email did not come through. When he answered I told him who I was and asked him if he had had a chance to send the incident report by email that he said that he would send to us. He said that he has not had a chance to send an incident report because he's been so busy with the Vesta home show and said that he would get it out to us within the next 10 days. Then he proceeded to ask me questions about if my mom was in distress or if she's having any issues as if he was giving me the run-around. I did speak to him that I felt as if he was giving us the runaround. He got really angry and started yelling and said that if we wanted to call a lawyer then that's what we should do. I stated to him that I was not looking to get a lawyer that we just needed an incident report for our records of what it happen. I asked if I could come to get the incident report any day before the 10 days and he stated that we could come anytime from before 10 a.m. on Tuesday through Thursday. I stated to him that that would not work for us and asked him if he could go ahead and get the incident report out to us by email before the 10 days. He began to rush me off the phone continuing to yell and saying that he had had another call coming in and that he had to go. I really feel that this was very unprofessional of him. I felt a little strange when he said that he would send the email when he first mentioned it the first time we talked to him. But I decided to go ahead and hope that he would send the email and do the incident report as he promised to do. My fmily and I go to the Vesta home show every year and we enjoy ourself every year. We will not be back ever again and we will be sure to let everyone know what has happened and the unprofessionalism that occurred from the executive director of this show. I do feel now that we need to call the lawyer because he got so out of whack about us just trying to get an incident report! My mom has bee hurting moe and more since her fall! We will never visit again!!!
