  • ★★★★★ in the last week

    My sister lived at Sierra Rehab from August 2017 to Oct 2, 2017 and received the most wonderful care from all of the staff. From the helpful and thoughtful social worker, to the nurses, CNAs. activity gals and housekeeping staff, my sister received the best of care and oversight as she transitioned from being admitted for rehab to gently slipping into hospice protocol. The staff creates a community feeling and some of the patients help out which benefits everyone. I felt the positive energy of Sierra from the first day until my sister's peaceful passing in this caring place. The staff was very kind, compassionate and friendly to me as well and that helped me at a difficult time.

    My father stayed here for two weeks before passing away. This was unexpected but they did everything to help him and our family. He really made him as comfortable as possible and that helped the family start to process what was happening. I really appreciate the doctor, nurses and administration for how they treated my father. They are very near to my hurt.

    I worked here as a clinical instructor during several rotations for a Denver based Nursing School. What I saw was a committed staff that genuinely cared about their residents and the facility as a whole was run extremely well by Adisa the DON. From the CNAs to the RNs I really appreciated the care they modeled for my students. They do good work.

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.

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
