Coastal View Healthcare Center
This place is very difficult to assign how many stars to rate it. The staff and management are some of the finest you could ask for. The rooms are nice and well equipped for personal needs.. As far as facility and staff it deserves more than 5 stars. But unfortunately you have to eat while you reside here. This is where you wish you could rate ZERO STARS. Here the chef and managements hands are not only tied but amputated. In my research over the years, it appears the owners of the facility signed a contract with a subpar food distributor that I believe they own as well. No reputable hospital or nursing facility would ever sign a contract for food. Only in a free market world can you get competitive bids for the highest quality of food,Instead here you get powdered eggs, powdered or dehydrated potatoes and at least 5-7 meals a week you would expect in a POW camp. There are great purveyors in the area that have excellent quality and service many hospitals and care facilities.Here are owners who put "profit ahead of people". So if you have a love one you are contemplating about putting here, my recommendation is give them extra money for delivered food or take them out for meals several times a week.If the owners ever came here and ate every meal they served for one week, the quality and selection would change in a nanosecond.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
