My mother was in this facility for a few days. She was supposed to be there for at least a month. It was so bad that she requested to be allowed to go home instead of staying there where she, supposedly, could be cared for Facility was dirty. Food was horrendous, and often cold when served. Nursing staff was very inattentive, seemed not to care at all for the welfare of their charges.

    There are some very good people working at Desert Cove. The CNA's and RN's are generally very good but the facility is understaffed. Patients must wait long periods of time before the nurses or aides answer calls for help. Occasionally, patients must lay in soiled diapers for long lengths of time. The facility is poorly managed and their systems, while probably good for them, work very poorly for the patients. There are lengthy delays, if every done, in responding to requests for records by doctors' offices. Patients' main contact for any medical assessment is a np who's work load is too high to handle.

    My grandfather was a resident at Desert Cove for years.(recently passed)
    He loved living there. We would visit twice a week and he was always attending an activity. The staff is caring and many have been there for years as well. The housekeepers do a great job; the place is clean. They also have a large inpatient unit for physical therapy. The rehab rooms are busy. I was told they've been around for over twenty years. Guess they know how to do it right!

    Care is under par for rehab patients. Rehab patients seem to be treated more like Hospice patients (the other side of the facility) rather than people trying to get better. Nighttime nursing staff are inattentive leaving patients to wait long periods of time without help. Non motivational psychology within the facility more of an enabling attitude towards patients.
