My mother-in-law went to Bella Terra (formerly Kolob Care & Rehabilitation of St George) a while ago because she had an accident. I was surprisingly impressed with it. Her husband had been there years before when it was a different name. It had been remodeled and smelled good. I thought that they did a really nice job. I really liked the staff. I loved the nursing supervisor and everyone that I worked with. The physical therapy people were great. She had a little accident within physical therapy; she was trying to wheel herself down the hall and a therapist came behind her to help push her and her foot was in the way and her ankle got twisted. I did not think that was anything that they did purposely. The staff was very patient with her. She was not feeling well and not happy sometimes, and they did a really good job of observing her. They would have church group come in on Sundays, and some people came in to perform and sing for the residents. For the situation, they did a really good job. The meals would be the one area that's not the best.

My review is mixed because it is not ALL bad or ALL good. The biggest area of concern that I think people need to be aware of is patient care. 95% of the people that work there are wonderful, care about residents and provide quality care. Like with any industry there are bad apples, but in this type of place bad apples stand out. Some specifics about the caregivers who do NOT do their jobs: Not showering/bathing residents as scheduled, (food in hair and on body, dirty fingernails, body odors) not keeping them in clean clothing (especially for appointments) not positioning them appropriately, sitting in soiled undergarments, not following fall risk protocols etc. Most were great, but the few that didn't do what they were supposed to means that the overall quality of care is poor. This wasn't just a CNA who didn't do their job, but nurses who didn't do their jobs overseeing the CNA and administration that allows it to happen. There were also instances of unprofessional comments/conduct around residents and family members/friends. Specifically, arguing with a resident and arguing between staff, and discussion of personal health information within earshot of other residents/visitors. (again, this was also nurses not just CNA)

I am/was a resident of this facility
The staff was very nice. The bedding was in poor shape. Housekeeping was good. Their Rehab was great! Their food wasn't that good. They need to let the patients have more of a say with what they are having to eat. Choices would be nice. The night staff needs to be more happy. They need larger bed pans!!!

I think the staff is the best part of Kolob. My experience with an elderly family member staying there for two weeks was first class. From the folks cleaning the rooms, the nurses, the receptionists out front and the warm and friendly support staff I knew these folks cared. And we could not have provided any more of a caring environment then they did. The admissions process was excellent and supportive for my family and they were very helpful in explaining all the details. The building was older but the staff and delightful pioneer photos in the hallway were wonderful.

The staff were friendly and very personable with the residents; a few in particular took to caring for my grandfather as if he was family. My grandfather ended up getting violent towards the end and they were patient with him and his needs. The amenities were fairly sparse, but they did have a nice outside area where they could get some sun. The place could have really used some grass in the outside area, but it is a desert climate so I suppose that is to be expected. It was a fairly small building, which actually made the experience a little better. I feel that if it was a larger facility there might have been less emphasis on the individual care due to the larger amount of residents. Mostly it was the staff that made this place great, not necessarily the facilities. Honestly, I think that is more important anyway.
