    This has been a really great experience. Therapy was excellent I received great care. Through my efforts and their help I was able to achieve my goal to get back home before 20 days! I made a complete turn around. Over all I like my stay here.

    My father was here for 6 weeks - during that time, the care and services provided to him and our family were outstanding. Exceptional care was provided by housekeeping, dietary, maintenance, the drivers, the therapists, the nursing staff, the medical team, and the administrators. If we had concerns, we were listened to and the issues resolved quickly and to our satisfaction. I did not meet one person on staff that was not dedicated to his/her job and the success of the patients.

    My wife had a full hip replacement surgery due to an accident and needed additional nursing and therapy following her surgery. We decided to place her at Life Care Center of Salt Lake City and have been very pleased with the care she received. She stayed for 9 days and during that time her healing was remarkable. Philip was the charge nurse who worked nights; Dechen was the charge nurse during days. They were both terrific! They're competent, caring, personable, and engaged. The CNAs were so happy and helpful, especially Steve. And the therapists, Jill, Eric, Rebecca, and Gina worked magic. They were patient, persistent, coaching, encouraging, awesome. I can't thank them enough! The facility is clean and well-kept. Downsides? The food was bland (not surprising). And they lock the door at 7:00pm and don't answer the call box to gain access, so make sure you (re)gain access by 7:00pm. I would definitely have additional family members cared for by Life Care Center of Salt Lake City.

    Very caring CNAs and nurses. I would put my family here with the present staff. However I didn't give it 5 stars because many of the staff are late to their shifts without any repercussion and they often run out of supplies. I also feel the executives there care more about money than people. They often get residents that should not be at that facility and yet they are cause the insurance will pay. Everyone needs to wake up and realize we all could end up at a facility. How would you want to be treated!

    Nursing care and oversight and patient progress via therapies are top notch based on patient and family members feedback.

Compare The Number of Problems

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
