01/17/2013 An Current/Past Employee Writes: To sum up: Crooked management. Decreasing conditions. Some excellent staff, and several very bad ones. And, a lot of turnover with that staff. Overall, many of the patients and patient families tend to be unhappy.
The facility tries to present itself as a leader in the nursing home industry in various ways. However, the substance does not match the image, you will find.
Look elsewhere. You will be much better off.

03/27/2011 An Current/Past Employee Writes: In Sept 2010 I wrote a very bad review about Hillside Rehab. Now that I have had time to let my personal feelings blow over, I would like to write how I really feel about Hillside Rehab. Hillside Rehab is a fairly nice facility. It is kept clean and you can really tell that the management staff is very involved in how the facility presents itself. The nursing staff, (with the exception of one night nurse), is very caring and do their best to bring excellent care to the patients there. As in most long term care facilities, the staff to resident ratio is horrible. I will not single Hillside Rehab out because, like I said, in most long term care facilities you will find this is the case. Warren Walker and Ron (the administrator), do a great job of monitoring the call light system and they try to improve response time as well as they can, but again, (and still.....as in all LTC facilities), the staff to resident ratio is overwhelming so it is very difficult for the staff to always answer the call lights in a timely manner. The food, at Hillside Rehab, is probably the best food you will find in a nursing facility, (or at least in the salt lake valley). The dietary manager is on top of her game at all times and will not serve a meal if it doesn't taste good. Huge kudos for the kitchen and kitchen staff!! The maint., department does the best he can to keep the building up and running. The building is old, (but remodeled), and you can tell the age in some areas like the lighting. The hallways are dark and very dreary. As an employee there, I would often complain about this. The air conditioning systems are old and do not always work, so in the heat of summer, your loved one may sweat a lot. Air does not move well in this facility. Hillside rehab is owned and operated by Mission Health Services. The president of Mission Health Services, Gary Kelso, always makes sure that he hires the best of the best consultants in all areas. This is a very good plus for Hillside. I found that, (while an employee there), the consultants really do micro manage the facilities. This turned out to be a very good thing. The activity department is always doing something fun with the residents there. Rebeckah leads the activity department and is full of fun ideas. If a resident is not staying busy, at Hillside Rehab, it is their own fault.
In closing, I would like to extend an apology, to the staff at Hillside rehab, for running them through the mud with my poor attitude. I would recommend Hillside Rehab for long term placement. If you are looking for a short rehab stay, I would suggest looking at a rehab facility where your loved one does not have to listen to the poor demented folks call for help 24/7.


09/23/2010 An OurParents User Writes: My father was at this dump that they call a nursing home. This has to be the worst place to place a loved one. I wouldn't even let my pet stay the night there. It seems that the administrator has no clue as to what is going on. The activity department consists of bingo and an occasional van ride. If you go in there on Friday afternoon, you will see some of the patients sleeping in front of the tv in the dining room. This is an activity? I don't think so. The nurses appear to work harder at getting away from work, than they do caring for their patients. My father was verbally abused by a couple of the CNA's and one of the night nurses. I highly advise anyone, who is thinking about placing a loved one into that dump, think twice!
