    This review is concerning the outpatient services at Life Care of Longmont. I had a traumatic pelvic injury that required me to be non-weight bearing and in a wheelchair for 2 months. During that time, I needed physical therapy in order to assure I didn't lose range of motion or flexibility in my lower extremities. I looked at other PT services in Longmont, but ultimately went with Life Care because they have equipment set up for learning to walk again, which many facilities don't have. They were able to take me immediately (some facilities couldn't see me for a month or more) and have been wonderful during this whole process. Pamela, who heads the outpatient department, is caring, bright and willing to help figure out any insurance questions/issues. My physical therapist, Becky, is an absolute angel and has helped me tremendously in recovery and learning to walk again. Everyone in the PT dept is kind and knowledgeable. I am so happy I chose Life Care for my recovery!

    My dad was in Life Care in January 2016. He was 84 and had Copd. He stayed on the rehab floor for about a little over a month. He then was told he was ok to leave and move back to where he lived at The Bridge Assisted living across the street. They ordered hospice to take care of him. Not because he was dying! He was told he would get the same care as he was getting at Life Care. He trusted what the Care Coordinator told him (without having a meeting with family members to agree with their decision) he believed them that he would get the care he needed to get stronger. He moved back to his apt on a Saturday and died 4 days later. Hospice did come in to administer morphine the minute his breathing got worse instead of what should have been given which is a nebulizer treatment like he always got and his breathing got better. The minute they started morphine (without permission from family) started giving him morphine every hour.! That is the last I saw him awake. Should not have happened this way. Hospice is good when people are dying but not for normal nursing care! He moved back because he trusted that he would get the same care which was not skilled nursing care. He still had 45 days left on Medicare to stay in the rehab at Life Care to get much more stronger before moving back into his apt. They gave him unproffessional opinions and did not look out for his well being. It was unsafe and was definitely not the care he needed to be basically on his own at the Bridge Assisted Living. He would still be here if not given information that was not in his best interest at Life Care. If you have a loved one in Life Care you have to watch carefully and make sure everything is agreed upon with your loved one needs to have family members input and know exactly what is being said and done with the care they should be getting. Hope this saves someone else's mom or dad.

    My mother spent ten days in this facility (it was supposed to be for short-term rehabilitation). The physical therapists and occupational therapists were professional, knowledgeable, and supportive. However, in every other respect, the care she recieved there was shockingly bad and deplorable. The sanitation and hygiene was terrible (NO handwashing, infection controls, universal precautions, etc), the staff was burnt-out, discourteous, rude, and failed to follow basic protocols. Response time was terrible (after calling for a nurse, she could easily wait 30-90 minutes for a response). The medical care was terrible. The staff was generally unprofessional, unkind, and unmotivated. I deeply regret having taken a loved one here.

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
