    My grandmother was here for therapy and loved it! She did physical therapy and raved about the speech therapist- I think Jenna was her name. Her room was on one of the top floors and was a private room. Her nurse was always the same, and was great at talking to my grandmother through some of her anxiety. All the staff were very friendly and helpful- I had the pleasure of meeting the administrator, some of the nurses, and cnas while I visited from out a town. Would recommend this place to others for everything they did for my grandmother.

    I've had both my grandmother and grandfather here. I was so please with all the staff that cared for him. My grandmother was here on the third floor and she loved every minute of it. She couldn't stop saying how great the food was! I would recommend this facility to everyone.

    They received my mother (78) without a release from the hospital. Accepted with out my knowledge as POA. After a nurse learned this a day later on night shift, called my cell. Next day I learned they would only keep her in a diaper and leave her in bed. They told her she had to walk at least 10 feet before she could use the restroom. Did they not know she hadn't walked for over 15 years and only do simple transfers. Refused her electric wheelchair to assist her. After a week and just locking her in her room, screaming with pain when I had negotiated using the stool previously, I made them sit her on the toilet and she gave birth to the largest stool they had ever seen. The next day she had pneumonia and mover to the hospital with sepsis and DIED shortly after. Not staffed properly or able to provide "humane" care for patients.

    This is a horrible place to keep your loved one. The nurses are fine but the administrator is awful. I have a sister (48) there now, whom is severely overweight and has severe lymphodema. This place had all the info about her size and the things she would need, bigger commode and a bed that would elevate her legs above her heart to help with the lymphodema. My sister has her own wheelchair and her own flexing touch, which is for the lymphodema. They state they have lymphodema care there. With knowing everything about her and the needs, they said no problem and accepted her. Right during the transition to this place, they got a new administrator whom is awful! The nurses are just fine but the administrator does not care about the patients or their safety. My sister has been there since January and this administrator would not order the commode and has refused to get her the bed she needs. It is now April and they just now got the commode! All this time, the administrator had it so my sister would have to lay on her side with a chuck pad behind her so she could try to have a bowel movement. Over time, she just recently ended up in the hospital because she had gotten so constipated from not being able to sit up to use the bathroom. My family has had meetings with the administration and the administrator still refuses to get her the bed my sister needs. Her lymphodema has gotten so much worse because they have done no lymphodema therapy and not being able to get her legs up to where they are suppose to be. They have not used her flexy touch one time on her since she has been there. Even in her hospital records, she has been diagnosed with lymphodemia and that she needs a bed to get her legs above her heart. Yet the administrator continues to ignore the instructions. At their last residents meeting for any grievances, many patients complained about this administrator and yet nothing is done. The bed they have for my sister is a high bed, it does not lower. She is 5"9 and her feet can not touch the ground even when sitting on the bed. She has almost fallen trying to get out and onto this bed, a handful of times, last night being one of them. She talked to the administrator and all she said to my sister is, "we are not discussing the bed". Do NOT put your loved one in here! The administrator cares nothing about the patients nor their safety or following instructions from the doctors. They just want the money without providing what they need. I would give this place no stars if I could.

    This center should be on a top ten list. The team and residents all treat eachother as family. The food has improved with a fantastic new staff. They all take the time to hear your opinions and concerns also are quick to make decisions even under critical matters. I'm greeted by all who pass me with the most friendly smiles and hellos! I recommend the Rehabilitation Center Of Des Moines to you all reading! ?

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.
