Went to visit my grandfather. His bed was filled with urine and was left there to sit in. It was heartbreaking to see. It also took 25 minutes before a staff could give me any attention. It wasn’t a ‘priority.’ The place in general is very run down and is so old. Hallways are cluttered with chairs and it smells really bad there too. Please look at the other recent reviews. DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONES HERE.
I went to visit my mom and I found her alone in front of the TV late at night. My mom was half way out of her wheel chair crying for help. My mom fell out of her wheel chair once before on their watch. I just couldn't believe that it almost happend again. We are looking for another place to place my mom. I just wanted to share to others if your thinking about placing a loved one under this places care, I advise you to look elsewhere. It broke my heart to find my mom crying and yelling for help. Who knows what would have happened if I didn't come visit her that night.
Going to have surgery this summer and am looking forward to the great care I got the last time I was lucky enough to to have my rehab here. Great people medical staff and PT persons always cheerful, kind and most of all thoughtful ,for a person of my age it is so comforting. I found the decor to be fresh and soothing,and the food was so good. Nice place to recover and heal.
The physical facilities are like what you would expect from an insane asylum from the 1920s: peeling paint, screaming patients, halls lined with wheelchairs and neglected patients. Understaffed and staff is overworked. The food is like prison food and, even though we filled out dietary requests, these were never honored. My grandma was treated like a prisoner. There was only one PT and 3 CNAs out of the entire staff that treated her with dignity over the 10 wks she was there. Her family lived it of town, so calls had to be made to the director, Sam. He would verbally acknowledge our requests, but 80% if the time, there was no follow-through. Once my grandma became ambulatory and wanted to go home, they were cruel to her and completely ignored her until she basically discharged herself.DO NOT send your loved ones here.
When I toured Issaquah Rehab I was told that they have a full-time Nurse Practioner in addition to their Doctor coverage. Being a Doctor myself, I was impressed by this extra layer of healthcare. The facility my Mother was in earlier did not have this level of care. If I or my Mother ever need a Nursing & Rehab facility again we will choose Issaquah Rehab.
Lynnette greeted us and gave a wonderful tour of all the services Issaquah Nursing offers. She was lovely and personable, answered all our questions and made us feel like welcomed guests. The facility is extremely clean and well maintained. Everyone I spoke with takes pride on the level of care they deliver. They earned my business.
For some reason this has my son's name. I've been trying to reach a friend there and wish them happy birthday. The first call they had to transfer to "the other side" which they did, that person then put me into a room where a man answered, I was calling for a woman. So I had to call back, I called back three times and they hung the phone up rather than answering it. Then on my fourth try, someone answered and she was trying to get me transferred to "the other side" then hung up on me. I finally reached someone willing to work. What concerns me is if the workers are willing to hang up on people calling rather than follow through helping them, how are they treating those in their care?
If you have a voice, are fully aware and are in here for simple rehab then you will be just fine. Do not leave a disabled family member alone in this facility especially if they cannot speak for themselves. My father did great there. We had to remove my brain damaged mother from this facility. We put her here twice. It went bad both times. I am in healthcare myself. Be very diligent and be your family member's advocate. They need you...
Was there after complete knee surgery. Had great experience, excellent care, cheerful staff and walked out after 2 weeks with only the aid of a cane. I was in better shape coming out physically then when I went in. I would revommend this place to everyone. Thanks to all the personal there.
