  • Sullivan Park Care Center Spokane, Washington 99216

    I want to give a huge shout out and recommendation to Sullivan Park Care Center in the Spokane Valley and to say thank you.

    The staff there took fantastic care of my grandmother and genuinely cared. She was happy and comfortable there, really liked the staff (and they her), and any issue, concern, and/or question we had was handled immediately.

    If you are in need of a care service (aka nursing home), check out this facility first.

  • Kindred Transitional Care & Rehab Center- Lakewood Lakewood, Washington 98499

    I have had the pleasure of touring the Kindred facility in Lakewood, Wa. What I saw there forever changed my concept of a Skilled Nursing Homes. Having toured many in this general area this is what I found at Kindred Transitional Care and Rehab. after many hours of touring I found:

    Competent skilled nursing. Call lights answered promptly. Friendly and gracious staff even in the most difficult circumstances. When residents were out of their rooms in the hallway; every time a staff member walked past them, the staff member greeted each with a smile and inquired of their needs. The place was immaculate , the food smelled good and looked "good". The residents appeared content. I could see they were safe. As one resident was attempting to get out of his wheelchair a CNA or nurse was there immediately to ensure their safety. When asked one gentleman stated he "really liked it at Kindred". The staff their clearly loved their residents (including janitorial, and management) and were willing to go at any lengths to ensure safety, and comfort. I will choose Kindred when my loved one is in need of skilled care. I cannot say enough good about Kindred and their staff. I have been to MANY skilled nursing facilities in the Tacoma area, no one can surpass Kindred Transitional Care and Rehab. PS the Rehab department is amazing. Thank you for the opportunity to show my thoughts and my observation. Not a nurse

  • Shoreline Health and Rehabilitation Seattle, Washington 98155

    Easily the best rehab/nursing facility around. The staff are so caring and they really made our family feel welcomed and walked us though the entire process with ease. The therapy is top notch and got my mom walking after just a few weeks. I would recommend Shoreline Health and Rehab to anyone needing post hospital care.

  • Bothell Health Care Bothell, Washington 98021

    My husband was at BHC and received good care, a few years ago,he was admitted in September 2015 , there were new owners and care was not the same.

    It was negligent at best,communication was between staff and managers was close to non existent. My husband fell, on September 2015, I was not informed of his transfer to our local hospital, I found out about his

    fall by another trauma hospital the next morning wanting to know details about his fall and previous medical care. As a result of his fall, he sustained serious injuries, it showed negligent care, we still don't know how he fell, because of multiple stories given to us, which included that they did call, when in fact they did not. No calls whatever, were ever evident on our caller ID. He went from being able to come home in a few days to trauma ICU and died as result. I would give this facility a NEGATIVE 5 review. If you want your loved one to die send them here if you want care avoid at all costs

  • Caroline Kline Galland Home Seattle, Washington 98118

    If you have to be in a nursing home, Kline Galland is the best we have found. My mother lived there for 5 years and died there at age 97 in October 2014. The staff is caring, and several have been there as long as 25 years. When you walk in, there is NO urine smell, and they are constantly washing the floors. There are usually no residents lining the hall as you enter slumped in their wheelchairs asleep. At the main entrance there is a newly remodeled living room, and you frequently see family groups gathered there having a good visit. Most dementia patients are housed on a different floor, so you will likely not encounter them. Because they are restricted to the 2nd floor, they cannot wander or try to leave the facility. Kline Galland has many activities for the residents including a snack at Carolyn's Cafe about 4 PM where residents and families can gather to interact over a snack and juice/pop. This is a Jewish facility, but they accept patients of any faith as long as they are willing to eat a kosher diet and observe the celebration of Jewish holidays. In your own space you can celebrate your own faith and keep non-kosher foods, but non-kosher foods are not allowed in the public spaces. I heartily recommend Kline Galland Home.

  • Mountain View Rehabilitation and Care Center Marysville, Washington 98270

    Feb 3rd 2014,Arrived with husband via ambulance after 4 days post op complete hip and socket replacement, 4th surgery due to horrific MVA. Was placed in a room with no outside phone line, and no cellphone reception. I am disabled so main way to keep in touch with hubby via phone. No dinner served, finally brought him a tuna sandwich about 7pm. Nurses' aide very rough and attempted to remove his surgical dressing with NO GLOVES ON. I stopped her. I went to use bathroom in patient room, filthy dirty, dust and dirt in sink and floating on toilet surface, garbage can overflowing and spilled on floor. Was told housekeeper gone for day, cleaning equip. locked up for night! Tried to get him moved, unable to coord. that till next morning. Our HMO paid their one day bill but made us pay for 2nd ambulance to a great place, Bethany at Silver Lake. I highly recommend that facility. 5 star treatment all the way. No bill ever sent by Mountain View for our $45 co-pay till I rec'd first letter dated Dec 14, 2014 advising payment was past due!!! Ridiculous! They won't waive that charge, even given the obvious patient health violations found. Operating manager, is NEVER avail. I've left him 4 phone messages, he's either on vacation, not in yet, or this p.m. on a conference call. There are good faith issues here, it's not the $45 that bothers me. How can any facility treat a patient like this post-op??

  • Paramount Rehabilitation and Nursing Seattle, Washington 98144

    I telephoned today to speak with nurse on duty and in charge of the care for my cousin. I was unable to speak with nursing staff due to the fact the one phone at the station was in use. The receptionist had to leave his post to try and get someone to answer the phone which was in use by a resident. There should be at lease two or three phone lines at a nurse's station.

    Thank you.

  • Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation - Arden Seattle, Washington 98133

    My mom spent a couple months at this facility rehabbing a fractured hip/hip replacement. I visited dozens of times, and spent hours there. The place is outstanding…well-managed, clean and pleasant, and very impressively filled with caring, helpful employees. I was consistently, uniformly impressed with the quality of the staff, in all positions I witnessed…friendly, helpful, competent. There's a lot of heart at Kindred/Arden…it seems to clearly be part of the vision of how the facility operates, from the top down, and is very much embodied by the caring, helpful employees. When it was time for mom to leave she was filled with gratitude for all the loving people who'd looked after her, and sad that she was leaving them--really, an ultimate compliment for the care and quality people this center provides.

  • Avalon Care Center - Pullman Pullman, Washington 99163

    Coercive commitment by Dr. who was both Avalon related and Director of Hospitalist Services at hospital where patient received surgery. Dr. moved beyond patient's need for rehab for shoulder surgery to include: Alzheimers which was being treated by a Neurologist and Psychiatric Nurse Practicioner as "conditions to be treated" and developed a 90 day treatment plan for "memory improvement" and other dementia related conditions (from patient records). Also, Bibolar ! was added to admission for surgery rehab, although this was being actively treated before by Psychiatric Nurse Practioner. Under the Avalon affiliated Dr.'s signature, Avalon preempted treatment of these conditions, interrupting patients treatment by her existing specialists, although allowing patient continuation of patient medications prescribed by that Neurologist if family provided these, which, of course, family did. Avalon director resisted discharge aggressively, when presented with discharge scrip from patient's surgeon. Director attempted to dismiss surgeon's release as "not addressing patient's 'other' problems" - none of which were proper for Avalon or their Dr.'s supervision. All of this occurred after specific objection was made to the Avalon Dr.'s conflict of interest and intervention in ongoing and long standing treatment relations with patient's Neurologist and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. After 30 days and considerable acrimony, patient's family managed to remove her from Avalon and restore her treatment relations with her preexisting Neurologist and Psychiatric Nurse Practicioner. The original deal was short term rehab for surgical recovery. This was being morphed into longer commitment for the several unrelated conditions when family intervened after surgeon's evaluation.

  • Panorama City Convalescent & Rehab Center Lacey, Washington 98503

    Usual kind of nursing facility, although clean and neat and good medical care. But my family member was just put in a wheelchair - even though capable of walking - and just sat there for hours. There was virtually no mental stimulation offered. There was a television but as our family member is legally blind and can't hear well, TV offers no mental/entertainment value. She visibly declined in only a four day stay in the C&R unit.

  • Victory Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center LLC Battle Ground, Washington 98604

    My daughter was discharged to Victory from Southwest Medical center with discharge orders to be given antibiotics--ampicillin and gentamycin every four hours, 24 hours a day. She had had meningitis with brain abscesses as part of her condition.

    For the first 20 hours she was there she was given NO antibiotics. Her hospital orders--the reason she was sent to this "skilled nursing center" (what an unfunny joke) were completely ignored. At this time, as a result of this lack of care, she could have had a relapse into the virulent phase of the infection. I did not know of this at that time. My wake up call came after she had been at Victory just under three weeks. I walked into her room at 10 AM and discovered she had pulled out her PICC the previous night and had lay in bed for 12 hours without her antibiotics or her intravenous nourishment.

    At that time she was readmitted to Southwest Medical with brain swelling along with abscesses. I did not want her sent back to Victory.

    I found out about the 20 hours because I filed a complaint with State Health Department, they investigated, and they sent me per my request a copy of their investigation.

    If you care about your loved ones, keep them out of this "skilled nursing facility.

  • Renton Nursing and Rehabilitation Center Renton, Washington 98057

    I give this dump ZERO stars but this site required I give at least 1star. It's filthy, you have to keep on top of them to feed, give meds, and change diapers of patients. The staff is either flat out rude, argumentative, or just flat out doesn't care. I wouldn't wish this dump on my worst enemy.

  • Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation - Arden Seattle, Washington 98133

    The staff here were all very friendly and cheerful, and generally pretty responsive to requests. Once we got a good schedule for OT and PT, the patient had a nice routine and responded well. The therapists were also really good, and had positive attitudes and were good at communicating both with the patient and the patient's family. The facility was clean and easy to navigate. The food was not that great - not really bad, just typical institutional-type meals.

  • Bremerton Convalescent & Rehabilitation Center Bremerton, Washington 98310

    Very poor care. Staff is not trained to take care of complicated situations. I would not put my worse enemy is this place. Management is very poor and only cares about filling beds. There are staff members and residents that involved in drugs. the place looks more like a high priced homeless shelter.

  • Queen Anne Healthcare Seattle, Washington 98109

    This facility is dated and has some glaring safety issues. In my husbands room, his only source of heat was a small electric wall heater that is not commercially rated. It had visible signage stating that it would burn you if you touched it. They had parked a nite stand partially in front of it. An obvious fire hazard .

    In addition most all of the staff speak another language as ther first language. As a consequence they make little effort make sure they are communicating accurately with the patient.

    My husband went without his pain meds for over 24 hours. Specific orders given by me went totally ignored by nursing staff.. Please take your beloved family member somewhere else. Don't believe the reviews!

  • Marysville Care Center Marysville, Washington 98270

    I reciently spent 6 weeks as a resident in the rehab wing of Marysville Care Center. When I first arrived I did not feel well and did not understand how things were done so I felt frustrated and trapped. However within a couple of days all my questions were answered in a way that was kind and I could understand. The staff was attentive and genuinely care about the residents. the staff, especially the CNA's work very hard, there are times when the residents seem extra needy and the CNA's have a difficult time keeping up, but they do their best and they do it with a smile even in high stress situations. The facility is very clean, there are no unpleasant odors. My needs were met with a smile and I felt well cared for. When the time comes that I need long term care I will go to Marysville Care Center. As with anything in life, it is what you make it, you can choose to focus on the negative or you can focus on the positive. I choose to focus on the positive, I was in a bad situation and needed help. Marysville Care Center helped me through it, there were difficult times and at times I got frustrated, but looking at the big picture my overall experience was good and I made a lot of friends.

  • Alaska Gardens Health and Rehabilitation Tacoma, Washington 98408

    I just spent the last two and a half weeks at Alaska Gardens. Yes I have been to other rehab centers but Alaska Gardens is by far the best rehab center I have ever been to. From Justin in housekeeping, all the cnas, to the nursing staff all were exceptional. The Therapist were fantastic including Mia and Doua and all the rest. The area was beautiful surrounded by flowers, a center court and across the street from Wapato park. I would recommend this rehab center to anyone looking for a place for yourself or your loved ones.
