10/10/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: Unless this is your only option, please I beg for you to look at other places. I don't usually write medical reviews because I believe not one doctor or hospital is for everyone. This review is based on safety and quality of basic care. I was so upset my mother was taken here after surgery. She had other options but with no family with her she was brought here after talking with a director named Rosie who promised her the world. The first day she wanted to leave but her phone and call button didn't work. By the time we got there multiple errors including medications and lack of basic hygiene like help to the bathroom and bathing had occurred. I could tell many stories of the horrific care and mistakes but the end is my mom got MRSA and now has been suffering through 4 months of treatments with no end in sight. I will say there were a few hard working staff members but with 30 or 40 patients per nurse each night there is no way they can handle the load. Please look into cleaner facilities and ask questions like, how often they offer bathing (kolob once a week), how they handle bathroom help (post knee/hip rehab at kolob are forced into diapers because they don't have the staff to take patients to the bathroom) and ask about the average time it takes for a nurse to answer a call button. My mom average time was over 20 minutes! One time they left her in the bathroom 2 hours! another time she called crying because she had fallen and no one had come for hours! By the time my mom left the advocate had counted over 40 violations. I am so sad my mother went through this rehab but feel worse watching so many other "moms" and "dad" stuck here that kids are too far away to know what is going on. We toured 4 other rehabs and all were far better and choose another one after my mother's next surgery and it was like a spa compared to the Kolob nightmare.

    11/27/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The nursing staff generally does their best to help my mother and answer my questions however they are responsible for so many people that there is no way they can give quality care to everyone. Before removing my mother from the facility I counted 31 patients in her halls which only one nurse was responsible for along with 2 CNAs. It simply doesn't work. They are so understaffed and the staff in direct care of the patients is run beyond thin. Anytime I requested to speak with management they were in meetings, yes they would sometimes come out to talk with me but all management seemed to do was have meetings. In general the CNAs and nurses really looked like they were trying their best to give patients the care they could but were simply not capable of caring for so many people. I fully regret placing my mother there and have spoken with several other people who have my same concerns and regret putting their loved ones through the trauma of Kolob!

    07/07/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The nursing staff is not the problem with Kolob SG, though their communication between shifts could be improved.
    What you have to look out for is the administration. They are arrogant and sneaky. They will tell you whatever it takes to get you to do things their way, whether it's legal or not. The A/R dept is a joke. When you catch the admins at something, they will blame lower level staff.
    If you can't afford anything other than Kolob, at least try to get into Kolob in Cedar City. It's worth it not to deal with St George.
