    I toured Sabino Canyon Rehab Center in late July prior to having knee replacement surgery. This was absolutely the most disgusting place I've ever visited. The asphalt parking lot was falling apart, the landscaping was non-existent, and the worst was the inside. I don't think the walls have been painted in 50 years, the ceilings are very low, the rooms are small, with no private bath; the place felt like a dark cave. The community bath is down the hall and you are allowed a shower every 3 days. I couldn't wait to leave. I have no idea how this place rates 5 stars from Medicare; obviously no one from Medicare has ever visited and inspected the facility. I would never recommend it to anyone; there was certainly no way I would ever consider it for myself.

    If I could give this facility 0 zero stars I would. DO NOT SEND your loved ones to this facility. This place was rated as a 5 star facility by medicare, which is a complete joke. We chose this building because it was close to home and rated 5 star, it was the worst mistake and a decision that was highly regretted. The building was run down, and please do not get me started about the staff. CNAs got attitude and rolled their eyes when asked for brief changes or to assist with patient positioning, nursing staff gave my loved one the wrong medication, and therapy staff got attitude when asked about how they did in therapy that day. This is just a horrible place and would NOT recommend it to anyone.

    Toured the facility recently and found the staff to be very friendly and competent. Rooms looked cleaned and well kept. Administration was very helpful and good with the residents. Would definitely recommend their care.

    Physical and Occupational Therapy are great! If you are in the initial part of recovery that may be problematical for you. The lack of an actual nursing staff (the nurses that can provide medical assistance or dispense medications) are sparse and as a patient that has immediate needs after surgery you have to wait in a long line for assistance. Most times you have to wait a long time for assistance after pressing the emergency bedside alarm. I will be adding additional comments.

    There is no communication amongst the staff. I was ignored several times when asking for a bloodsugar test. They offer transportation to appointments but fait to mention its $50 a trip out of pocket. They lost 9 items of my clothing items. They requured me to have supervised showers as a fall risk but one of the nurses found it more necessary to leave the room to flirt with a co worker and talk on her cell. The staff openly complained about my girlfriend arriving after hours even though i approved it with the administration. They openly reprimanded her like a child. I overheard a nurse tell a patient that he was pissinng her off. They would turn off call lights and ignore the residents request. They were very prompt at demanding payment though. Less than a week after they rushed me out the door i was back in the hospital having surgeryon a wound they considered healed. These are only a few horrifying experiences i endured during my stay.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
