    Unfortunately, my father had to be in here for 20 days after a nasty fall. There were a couple of positives, he liked the PT guy and the cleaning staff did a great job.The negatives by far outweigh the positives. Immediately on entering the nurse told us they were going to have to send him back to the E.R., a mistake had been made with his prescriptions. Now why on earth he would have to go back or why she did not make sure this was true be for telling us?... I have no idea. He did not end up having to go back. After we had settled in we quickly noticed this was the most depressing building any of us had been in. I am not talking because it is a Nursing Home, It just has a very dark horror movie ambiance. Next, we asked if he could take a shower. We asked every day for 14 days and every day we were told tomorrow. Also, he had been in the hospital with stomach ulcers and none of the nurses had any idea, so they gave him every acidic spicy food that you do not want with ulcers. Toward the end of his stay, he called us and told us he may not be getting his meds that night. We found out after calling that this was the case for all the occupants. A problem with the meds coming from Pueblo. We already knew of this facility's bad reputation but his Dr. wanted him here for some reason. If god forbid he has to go into one of these places again, there is no chance in hell this will be the one. On a side note, before Covid-19 I called around asking if I could look inside and tour, we were thinking he might end up here, Canon Lodge said no. Skyline Ridge will let you look inside before being admitted, it is much nicer, brighter, and has things to do.

    To anyone considering putting a family member in a nursing home or to anyone in the nursing field looking for a new job....DO NOT CHOOSE CAÑON LODGE!!! They are understaffed which directly effects resident care. They allow their CNAs to illegally use lifts, and some CNAs smoke marijuana on their breaks. This place is full of drama by just about every department. The DON stays in her office 90% of the time and 90% of the staff do not respect her. Please search elsewhere when considering because this place is NOT SAFE and NOT WORTH IT!

    My Husband and I cannot thank everyone enough for the great care they all took of his father. Everyone of them did an awesome job with him. We came from out of state to be with him in the end and they were so good to us too! They really care about their patients and family! Thank you so very much!
