My friend just checked herself out of Sprenger. After leg surgery and sent to Sprenger, while "accompanied" by an aide she fell. Not once, bit twice. And seriously hurt herself. She's going back to her surgeon for xrays because she may have injured her leg. Sprenger did not include her falls in her medical record. An obvious coverup. DO NOT GO TO SPRENGER!

My father was sent to Sprenger shortly after hip surgery for rehabilitation. I can’t thank enough the nurses and the administration for the care given. He was always in good spirits and so well taken care of when I couldn’t be there. I’m so grateful for all the nurses, therapists, and administrators for taking such excellent and nurturing care for my father . I would highly recommend this facility to anyone seeking long term or short term care . Thank you Sprenger of Bluffton for all the love and care given to both my father and myself !

After a very stressful experience with my father falling and breaking his neck, it became time to seek outside help in caring for him. In a very short period of time (2 days), we were able to find him a comfortable place next week. Thank you, Ms. Shaw amd Sprenger Health for your caring response. We look forward to a bright future.

My Dad transitioned from a memory care facility to skilled nursing at Sprenger. Except for one nurse, the staff was excellent -- from the nurses, aides, and even the people serving food/drinks. The nurses were attentive, engaged, and always available for updates. We always felt he was getting the best care possible under the sad circumstances. Even in my Dad's last days, you could feel the true compassion and genuine sadness from all the staff. If you have to put a loved one in skilled nursing, I would recommend this place.

May 2020, I needed to find a Long Term Care facility to care for a 97 year old friend. Sprenger Health Care was recommended by Assistance + who had been helping me care for my friend. After a stroke, my friend was no longer able to live in an Assisted Living Facility and after leaving the hospital was transferred to Sprenger Health Care in Okatie. I worked with Shav Jones to complete the paperwork to get my friend admitted and have worked with Ms. Jones since. She and the staff at Sprenger have been wonderful answering my questions, getting my friend the physical therapy and other services she has needed to make her life at Sprenger one that my friend has enjoyed since arriving. They are quick to call me to give me Covid updates or if something has happened that I need to know about. My friend loves it and you very seldom find her in her room. She is enjoying all the amenities that Sprenger has to offer (bingo, craft projects, sitting and chatting with the staff and other residence and especially the ice cream social and milk shake days). I can’t say enough about the great communication I get from the staff and their care of the residence. A lot of places see this just as a job. The staff at Sprenger see this as caring for their grandmothers and grandfathers - family. I hope I am lucky enough to find a place like this when my time comes to need this type assistance.

Sprenger Health Care has been wonderful during a very difficult stage of life for my family. Not only have they provided good care to my father, they have thoughtfully included our family during all discussions about his progress and needs. They are handling the challenges presented by the pandemic very carefully and diligently.

I just recently spent a little over two weeks in the Sprenger facility. My experience there was a great one. I felt taken care of, looked after and treated very very well. The food was good, with a menu that really pleased. I worked real hard with the phyiscal therapy team, and was really prepared for my home situation. What a great place to rehab.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about This facility. My mother has been here twice. When she first arrived. October of last year. She has very little movement on one side of her body. She has a Brian tumor. With the combination of amazing team work from the staff. Both pt and ot. She was able to leave Walking normally. She even regained her ability to drive. The place is new clean. The staffs attitude is upbeat and goal oriented. Shav has is outstanding in arranging presentations for me as to her progress. Unfortunately I live far away and it’s hard to know what is going on when your not physically available. She has been readmitted. I’m impressed at how tight they are to a side. Ovid transmission. Hats off to them and there hard work. This is a great facility. If you need there services for your loved ones. There isn’t a better place for them to beCurtis Frank

2 stars is for the CNAs (mostly night shift) ,a few of the nurses and Therapy was outstanding. As far as the remainder of the staff and Drs. What Drs???? never were seen all I heard were phone consults with nurses. Head staff was more concerned about payment before the care of the patient. I could type a book of negatives on this facility !!!

My father recently had a stroke and needed a additional therapy. Sprenger Health Care in Bluffton was recommended to my family. I was little leary about skilled nursing facility, but I am glad we chose this facility for our father. The staff is attentive and patient. If you have elderly family member that needs assisted living or rehab you should definitely chose Sprenger Healthcare in Bluffton.
