I feel very discouraged after reading some of these reviews. I hope everyone reading this will look at the big picture and realize these comments were made 2 years ago. A lot of good things can come about in 2 years. My sister just passed away at sandpiper after a long battle with dementia. I spent the last 3 days at her bedside and I couldn't help but feel guilty for not being there more often even though she didn't know who I was when I did visit. I worried she felt lonely but after spending those last days with her, I was blessed to realize just how amazing the staff really is and how much they loved her. They made a nursing home feel like a loving home. I wasn't going to mention names but I've always been a person who believes good work should be appreciated. One of the night nurses, Erin was by far the best nurse I've ever met. Her level of compassion is unmeasurable.

Deseret Nursing & Rehabilitation At Wichita
My mother broke her femur in February. I could not get a local hospital to listen and remove her from a medicene that she was allergic too. The first Rehab she went too left her lay in bed for four weeks causing two hemotomas and her surgery had to be redone. She was placed on a second medicene that caused incontenince, and continued on the med that she was allergic too. All the while the first Skilled nursing facility lied to me. At least at Deseret, they listened, they removed the negative medicene, they balanced her diabetes, they had her out of bed, bed sores healed, and walking again. I have not found it dirty, or smelling any worse than any other Skilled nursing facility in town. The staff has been caring, professional, and on board with the treatment plan . It is not new or pretty but well worth the healing experience and investment.

Avita Health & Rehab At Reeds Cove
Rhis place was okay to work at until the residents get tired of you, and they will do and say anything to get you fired. It's supposed to be 2 aides a nurse, and a Med aide. Usually they run short staff and are forced to do dangerous things like using a Hoyer lift all by ourselves and transferring residents with faulty equipment. The pay is okay..until you see and experience all that is required of you. I would not recommend this facility to a friend as a place to work and would not recommend as a facility to send your family to. There usually is not enough staff to ensure each resident gets the care they deserve and pay for. They have no working pagers either. No way to efficiently pass ice water, ect..the list goes on and on of problems with this facility. Steer clear!

The staff seems pretty nice but really are not trained very well. The center is pretty but that is about it. There are a couple of nurses that are decent but some that need to move on. The food is heat and serve. Not a homemade taste. When I first got here I was suppose to have my pain medicine at 6:30 but didn't get it till midnight. I am trying to give this place a fair evaluation. They do allow you to bring your animals up to visit. I did like that. I miss my dogs very bad!! If someone is very ill then I don't think it would be a good choice. If they can fend for themselves then it is ok. I hope this helps.

Avita Health & Rehab At Reeds Cove
Our family was very nervous when we were told my dad needed to go to a skilled rehab facility. We were expecting a typical nursing home that smelled and was dark halls. This place was absolutely the opposite! From the second we walked in until the day he went home, we were in awe of how impressive it was. From the beautiful building to the caring staff - it was great. Could not be more impressed. This experience has completely changed how I see nursing homes. GREAT job Reeds Cove! Dad loved the therapy, the food, the employees, his room - everything! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.

Reeds Cove has many staff members who are kind and caring to residents and their families. Care plan conferences are held to ensure everyone has an opportunity to provide input regarding their care and/or concerns. Also the DON encourages staff, residents and families to openly voice concerns.

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.
