  • Advanced Subacute Rehabilitation Center at Sewell Sewell, New Jersey 08080

    Hallways are clean and clear of patients sitting in wheelchairs all day. No funky odors when you walk in. That's the GOOD news.

    THESE ARE THE PROBLEMS:

    1) Place must be short-staffed, as "I'll be back" is common response when you use the call button. Then nobody comes back for 1…2…3 hours.

    2) Website says they're certified in my problem but all that means is certified Dr/nurse stops in once a week to check you. Staff nurses do their best--sometimes w/ good results, sometimes not. Then you have to wait until the next shift comes on, if you're lucky, a nurse on that shift will be able to resolve the problem.

    3) MANY (NOT ALL) AIDES BEHAVE VERY UNPROFESSIONALLY. They are loud and impatient, rush you to move, stand, walk, to point you could sustain new injuries. They inappropriately vent anger/frustrations on patients (e.g.-AM shift aide never returned to empty bedpan. Next shift came in and exploded that she "shouldn't have to take care of somebody else's shit"--she was referring to aide from previous shift and she was right about that but she should take it to her supervisor, not to patient who;s already mortified they're using a bedpan.

    4) KITCHEN PERSONNEL ARE APPARENTLY INCOMPETENT AND ILLITERATE. Either they weren't cooking what the menu offered or they couldn't read who ordered which foods. VERY FEW MEALS arrived containing foods that were actually "ordered" from their menu sheets. It was borderline-incredible that it could be so consistently wrong. When you complained it took a very long time for a reply and often "the kitchen [was] closed" or was out of whatever you actually ordered. The meats were steamed and gray-- repulsive and mealy. Very bad food service, which, that should be the least of the problems. Any short-order cook could help them. One aide shared on a weekend "Oh those young kids, on weekends they just want to get done and get out early." Who's running the asylum? And one final thought--- grilled cheese sandwiches consistently were made with one homely slice of American cheese. One slice??? Is the budget that tight? That is something mgmt should be ashamed of and correct immediately.

    Overall it was not a happy experience. The setting was OK but the people and procedures and the way they performed their work left a bitter feeling of "GET ME OUT OF THIS PLACE!"

    I'm a 57 yr old male who was transfered to Subacute Rehabilitation after major back surgery at Jefferson center city. Arrived 1/27/17, 1pm. I was told I didn't have any meds yet including my pain meds but did receive a shot of a very important blood thinner called heprin. Nurse informed me Jefferson was giving me it in arm which was incorrect and gave it to me in my left side abdomen.The following day I was notified my meds were in and received any pills along with a second shot of heprin on my right side by nurse Megan. That night 2am I hit nurse call button and told aid I needed pain med as I only had 1 since getting there, waited two hours called nurse again at 4am, aid said she would let nurse know again, 6am called again aid said she would let nurse know. Finally got pain meds at 7:15 am sun. Nurse Megan showed up with another heprin shot which I instructed her to no give it in stomach muscles as she did the day before. After shot my girlfriend noticed I was supposed to be getting shot every 8 hrs not every 24. At that point things got a little crazy, meaning they accused me of being out of it during the missing doses and that I was asleep. I know how many needles I've gotten in my stomach in my lifetime let alone over 3 days, at that point head nurse JP showed my girl a doctored up card with the added doses. This could have been more serious and could have caused death.Finally discharged 1/31/17 I'm a young man and ├žould not imagine my 85 year old loved one going through this. Jefferson hospital sent me there because of the 5 star rating. I found out they changed their name and added an addition. Please, do your loved ones a favor, use Kennedy's Rehab or Atrium

    My Father has just been admitted to the Kennedy Rehab facility,in Sewell,N.J.,which is part of the Nursing Home ,and Kennedy Hospital.I just want to say being in the Health field myself,this was a very hard thing for me to do,having been witness to many unpleasent things over the years. As I left my Dad that first night my heart sank with guilt ,and saddness fearing the worst,but I was very pleased with all the help,and patience,being giving to my Dad.I have spoiled him like a child while living with me,and having someone else care for him has bother me to no end,but I feel very confortable leaving him now in the hands of the passionate,and understaning workers,at Kennedy Health Rehabilitaion center. I hope I can still feel the same the day I am able to take him home….A very appreciative daughter.
