Need new bed sheets and a new remodeling job but clean and sanetery. CNA's tend to complain a lot when doing there job and can give attitude specialy when it comes to rehab, but they do the job. sometmies feel like there running the show. Mostly concern over there own well beign rather than the paitent. Overal it is very clean and the atention to recover is great. Staff can be friendly,care giving and helpfull. Grate activity program.Social services are very helpfull. RNAs are very attentive responsible to doctors orders and friendly.

My mother was at this facility for therapy after a stroke. The staff was amazing with her. The facility was always clean and did not smell. The staff catered towards her needs for things like pain treatment before the therapist came in, food preferances and activites throughout the day. My family and I would recomaned this facility to anyone needing placement in a rehab center!

Very displeased with what I witnessed. Patients needs being ignored. Food looks like its from a fast food. Meals should be more nutritious. Staff are not caring or patient with the defensely elderly. It is sad and people become very depressed in there. When people visit some of the staff behave more attentively but when they think no one is looking they do things that should be reviewed by the state. They talk back with attitudes when the patients ask simple questions about what they do to them. THey are utteryly disrespectful. It seems there is alot of abuse in there.

Response: My mother had been a Kaiser "rehab" patient there for 30 days. I agree, not much attention is paid to the qulailty of food or restrictive menus. My diabetic mother was served no protien at meals, rather mashed potatoes, cornbread and pasta several times. The staff clearly have their favorites and others are sadly neglected. They "ran out" of my mother's perscribed pain medication at least 3 times! They became annoyed when I placed a whiteboard in the room and started charting when her meds, therapy, cleaning occurred.
