Overall RatingsGranite Rehabilitation and Wellness is a nursing home with a meager 2-star overall rating, which puts it squarely within the bottom 40% of similar facilities regarding overall assessment. This rating falls below the state average. The home's health inspection rating, crucial in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of its residents, also stands at 2-stars and is disappointingly in the inferior 40% when compared to other facilities. This too is lower than the average for the entirety of the state. Furthermore, Granite Rehabilitation and Wellness has a 2-star quality rating, placing it at the bottom 20% of comparable institutions with regard to this metric. Unfortunately, this is yet another area in which it lags behind the state's average.

Despite its 2-star staff rating, it falls in the bottom 20% of facilities regarding nursing aid staffing hours per resident per day, contributing 1.69 hours compared to the state's average of 2.39 hours. However, it does excel in the LPN staffing hours category, being in the top half of facilities with 0.93 hours per resident per day, far exceeding the state's average of 0.54 hours. Unfortunately, it falls short in RN staffing hours, at 0.50 hours per resident per day, and in licensed staffing hours, at 1.43 hours each, both of which are less than the state average of 0.89 and 1.43 hours respectively. Further, its physical therapist staffing hours are below average at 0.04 hours, placing it in the bottom 40% of facilities in terms of physical therapist staffing hours per resident per day.

Ranked in the top 30% of facilities for resident vaccination rates, the nursing home boasts a vaccination rate of 79.6%, which significantly surpasses the state average vaccination rate of 68.4% for residents. The nursing home not only excels in resident vaccination rates, but also shines in staff vaccinations. It is positioned in the prestigious top 20% of facilities with staff vaccination rates being higher than the average. The wellness center has an impressive staff vaccination rate of 43.8%, which greatly exceeds the state's average staff vaccination rate of 23.6%. This establishes The Granite Rehabilitation and Wellness as a proactive and health-oriented facility.
Quality MeasuresThe Granite Rehabilitation And Wellness is a nursing home that has garnered a 2-star quality measure rating, relegating it to the second-lowest possible rank. When it comes to weight loss among residents, the facility ranks in the lower 30%, with 7.52% of its residents losing excess weight - a figure that is notably higher than the state's percentage of 6.73%.

Additionally, in terms of outpatient emergency department visits per 1000 days, the facility's rate of 1.26 lands it in the bottom 40%; this demonstrates a less frequent need for urgent outpatient care compared to the state's higher average of 1.48. When considering short-stay residents who necessitated outpatient emergency department visits, the nursing home remains in the upper half of the facilities, albeit at a lower percentage of 11.07 compared to the state's 13.39.

I have never seen a company so unprofessional in my life. They are literally calling one call after another before she even gets there to pick her dad. The accounting department needs a lesson in customer service. SHE WILL BRING A CHECK LADY. SHE WILL BRING A CHECK. LAWD! IF YOU HAD GOOD SERVICE YOU WOULDNT HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE SKIPPING OUT ON YOU.
My grandmother has lived at Granite for over 2 years. You would be hard pressed to find a better group of people to care for your loved one. I get a phone call at least weekly letting me know how she is and what's going on in the facility. Every time I have a question or concern the staff is right there to support us. They've been very flexible and accommodating to us, whether it's dealing with financial issues, medications, or Grandma's special needs. Having someone in a nursing home is hard, especially during COVID, but the staff at Granite has really gone above and beyond to keep us in touch with Grandma and make sure we know they're taking good care of her.
I’ve been blessed to be a part of the team since June of last year. Many residents have become family away from family as I moved out here from the East Coast. The nurses are passionate and many feel as I do....our residents are family!!! We’ve done a lot of amazing things: trick or treaters, Girl Scouts coming in to do activities, attending events in this amazing community and seeing the smiles on their faces melts my soul. Healthcare isn’t always easy, but it’s the little things like residents hugging us, or laughing with us, or sitting and learning about them that makes it all worth it!!!
My brother was recently sent to your facility for antibiotic TX. That facility is disgusting, the room he was in was worse then a jail cell and the staff treated him like he had the plague! You all should be ashamed and disgusted with yourselves! You call that healthcare?! A dramatic change in his health and no one notified the family until after he passed, and when we showed up the way the staff responded was appalling! Imagine you're loved one spending the last moments of their life like that, isolated, cold and alone and neglected! That facility should be shut down and no one there should be employed in healthcare!
If you want to lose your nursing license or get yelled at on a daily basis come work here! This place is garbage for management. They have successfully run off all the hardest workers and what remains are back stabbing individuals and a second floor manager who will cuss you out if you don’t fit the narrative. Absolute garbage. I don’t know how anyone can work here.UPDATE: They physically told a student to leave after they offered her job back at the facility. The student respectfully declined and had a valid reason as to why she could not return. Previously to this happening, the administrator, the DON, and the second floor unit manager were witnessed talking about her in a demeaning way stating they should kick her out because they don’t like her. They offered her her job back then asked her to leave. She literally did absolutely nothing wrong. Just pure pettiness from the management team. Didn’t know they can deny a student just because they don’t like them.
Even calling the Compliance Hotline doesn't matter. They act like they care but they don't. Avoid this place at all costs. My sister is still being treated like dirt...I'm editing this because you leave no way to respond to you except through a phone call...I've already done that. It didn't work the first time. How does your staff lose patients personal belongings? Not to mention all the other anguish my sister has been through.
We removed our mom after approximately 3.5 months. They lost her clothes, wouldn't put her teeth in, couldn't charge her phone, etc.. she had diaper rash. It was not communicated to us why she was in a diaper. When we called to address our concerns we got dismissed. She came home with head lice. Not a memory care facility that I would recommend even though it is the only one in cheyenne.
The staff has some people who are decent, but overall the people who take care of your loved ones, who "greet" you at the door (if you could call it a greeting), all need a little education in bedside manner. Instead of a, " Hello, welcome to Granite, how can I help you?", or, "Who are you here to see?", it's more like, "Woah! Stop right there, who are you?! Are you scheduled to see someone?!", in a very aggressive tone. Lots of red flags with the manner of communicating with people coming into that place, makes for a very negative seeming environment that makes one question the level of care patients are receiving.
The Staff at Granite is caring and loving. I've worked 8 years in Long Term Care, 7years in Ohio and 2 years in Cheyenne.The love and concern for the Residents' at Granite Rehab and Wellness is genuine. People work hard to meet the needs of every single person that is under their care.
this place is one of the worst place that you can actually put one of your loved ones in the seniors there are getting neglected their everyday medications that are administrated to them on a daily or not being given to them in rehab also not getting showers I don't recommend this place for anybody, it smells like urine through the whole second floor facility it is very sad I will never use this nursing home or Rehabilitation Center ever again. This place needs to be shut down.
