Charlottesville Health & Rehab is a bright and open place for people to recover after a hospital stay. When you walk in the door you feel the positive and caring energy from the staff right away. The rooms and hallways are clean and best of all, they DONT SMELL! The gym is huge and there always seems to be people In there on the equipment. The patients all appear happy and well taken care of. It's a place that I would want my grandmother for rehab or longer term care!
My mother-in-law stayed there and at first we THOUGHT she was getting great care. Then as time went on it became evident that that was not true. We went to visit one Sunday and she had thrown up all over herself and was laying in her own feces. Her nurse was rude when ask why she was in this condition. As for the administration they will never return calls and answer ANY questions. We decided to move her to another location and during her transport from Charlottesville Health, that they arranged she was taken to the wrong facility and left there! Of course we never got ANYONE from Charlottesville Health to answer us or call to even check on her or apologize for leaving her sitting in her wheelchair at the wrong location! I would DEFINITELY check out another facility before using this one!
I don't recommend. on April 20th I went for a training session before my mom came home after the training session was over I left my mom exactly where they told me to leave her in front of the nurses station and she fell out of her wheelchair an hour later after I got the call. and then I found out that she had fell over the weekend which I was never notified about. and all they want to tell me is it's okay for them to fall it happens. it is not okay for them to Fall by the Medicaid rules in a facility.
I have enjoyed my stay here. Stacy and Kim are my physical therapist and they are top notch. I'm excited to see my progress as the weeks continue. Mrs. Donna and "Pinky" are my nurses and they are some of the best I have seen. The staff keeps me positive and they do everything they can to accommodate me. I really cant say anything bad about this place other than they always seem to run out of rainbow sherbet.
The facility is very clean and inviting. All of the staff are helpful. While the staff to patient ratio might meet guidelines, there are not enough staff to support the medical needs of the patients who are admitted, and it's not for lack of trying. The PT and OT staff are phenomenal! Nursing personnel are also very caring as well. Unfortunately, it's not enough! Again, it's not due to the work ethic of staff, including management in the facility. The problem here is with the corporate office not recruiting or hiring enough staff, to support the varying medical needs of the clientele they have admitted into their facility. It's a shame that the the CEO can't investigate the situation through a pseudo Undercover Boss format. Only then could he possibly see where the needs are and help this facility become a GREAT facility! Until that happens, staff will continue to run around like chickens with their heads cut off, patients will not receive even one cup of ice water a day, (unless a staff member has time, or family/friends come in daily to request a cup of ice water) and missing electric razors will continue to be the norm. As of 3/3/18- it appears they have two CNA's caring for 40 patients in the one wing; 1 RN covering meds and other needs; 1 patient just needed to be taken away after a 911 call, and I believe there's a total of 90 beds in this facility. Again, it's probably a great facility, if you are sent here for short term rehab and do not have other chronic needs that are impacting how ambulatory you are during your stay here. However, this place will continue to not be able to maintain its current staff or hold onto new staff, unless corporate tries to change things. Needless to say...Insanity Is Doing the Same Thing Over and Over Again and Expecting Different Results."
I wouldn't suggest this facility to anybody. My husband was there for a month. They lost one of his slippers the first day. When we moved . Him to a facility closer to our family he didn't have any of his clothes and none of his toiletries, including a electric razor. I called and told them I wanted to come and get them and they said he threw everything in the garbage. I couldn't believe they said that and even if he did a normal reaction for a care giver would be to retrieve them from the garbage. I am thinking about getting an attorney.
