    My mother in law went here for therapy after a major surgery. She was not only mistreated, but neglected. I was so angry that they put me in touch with their facility director. Long story short I had to look into filing a law suit before it got their attention. I was otherwise ignored. We (her family) ended up removing her from the facility. If you have a loved one who needs care DO NOT send them to Life Care Center in Pueblo! Awful, horrible facility!

    The physical therapy with Romeo and his co- workets in PT was the absolute best my husband could receive. They were truly caring and had the residents best interests in mind. The medical care was mediocre. There were some nurses who truly cared about the residents, but others were just earning there paychecks. One nurse told a patient she was not allowed to touch patients. My husband's hygiene was a huge concern and depended on who was assigned to him. He had dried feces on him and his bed. When these concerns were brought to the director's attention, they seemed to be ignored. The good nurses and CNA's were overworked and the lazy ones were rewarded for not doing there jobs. Also, when my husband became very ill, the facility doctor did not make the time to check him and he had to go to the emergency room and was admitted into MICU. I recently found out that an employee broke the HIPA rules by sharing medical and therapy information to family members. To those nurses and CNA's, the Social Worker and Romeo and the physical therapists, I am grateful. I would not recommend this facility for a loved one.

    Well my mom went into the facility after knee replacement, and left within 24 hours she came home, due to the staffing not giving her pain meds on time waiting untill the next day, when should have had them every 4 hours or so, would not let her shower cause she was not on a list, waited a few hours for water to drink. The therphy lady was rude and demanding telling her that she was going to do what she says. The day she went in i was there over 3 hours, and the poor lady across the hall screamed for somebody to go help her, not one person went into that room nor did i see a nurse on that hall except the therphy lady and she did nothing at all. I finally walked down the hall to get a nurse and while walking down to the nursing station i seen one person laying on the floor in their room half naked, i tell the nurse about the lady screaming for help she rolled her eyes and walked away from me but finally went to check on her about 15 min later. Its a beautiful place but the health care people freaking suck. Rude and unfriendly looks like they might be understaffed and they just dont care. Im not saying this to be an ass but i dont want other peoples family member to be in a place like that. Then to boot one staff member tells my mom i dont know why they sent u here our physical theraphy sucks here. There might be good care in other parts of the facility but where my mom was it was horrible. Just thought i would share our expireance there.

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
