My dear sister in law had a terrible accident and suffered sever injuries. After being at the hospital she was moved to this facility. At first glance it seemed nice and clean. After visiting with her several times I could see problems with the room not being very clean, maybe a shortage of housekeeping? In addition, they knew they needed to change the bandages on her wounds yet they did not, she now has an infection. Be careful of these places, they may look clean and the people may smile a lot but the care is sub standard.

I noticed packets of white sugar on the table (patient is diabetic). I questioned the nurse about this, and she said they are not strict about such matters. I said very firmly that he is diabetic, and he needs to not be getting stuff like that. She said she would say something to the kitchen. But they knew he was diabetic when he was admitted, and for a week now, they have been working against his blood sugar levels. After that, I thought I better check about the sodium restrictions he is supposed to be on. So today, on the phone, I questioned whether or not he was on a restricted sodium diet at all. When he left Penrose Hospital before being transferred to this facility, we were told by the nutritionist there and his doctors that it was essential he be on a restricted sodium diet, no more than 2000 milligrams of sodium per day, no more than 150 milligrams of sodium per serving of food. He has been for the last several days blowing up like a balloon holding water at an alarming rate. The nurse told me they can't count every gram of sodium there (!). She said he is on a "no-added-salt diet." I was furious and told her that low sodium and no-added-salt are worlds apart!! That a gravy or soup might exceed his limit of sodium without any added salt! She said I could talk with the kitchen staff tomorrow. I asked how much sodium was in the gravy that he was served with dinner yesterday, and she could not tell me. I told her that if they cannot provide him with a low-sodium diet, that he needs to not be there! I am horrified. They are making him worse. They had no right to admit him if they could not follow his dietary restrictions as laid out on the cardiac care unit at Penrose -- restrictions given for after he left the hospital. I don't know what to do. They are "helping" him to "exercise" while overloading his already compromised valve with fluids due to un-monitored and un-restricted sodium levels! This is a recipe for disaster.

My father came to the facility for rehab in speech, OT AND PT, the staff was over the top and my father made great progress. Unfortunately his medical condition turned from therapy to direct in patient care. The hightest quality of dignity and respect and over the top care was given to my father and the entire family. We would recommand this facility to anybody. Can't say enough about the facility,

I had a relative stay here after a knee replacement and it was terrible! The physical therapist was great but the nursing staff was terrible! The doctor didn't communicate with the nurse about turning off the oxygen and about getting the paitent off pain meds. When talking to the nurse about reducing the nurse would not do it. Even the paitent kept telling them there was no need for the pain meds cause the pain was at. 2 they continued to give the meds. The nurse staff does not listen to the paitent and don't pay attention to what the paitent is eating or ordering. This caused a lot of discomfort for the paitent going from being constipated to throwing up and diarrhea. I would never recommend this facility to anyone.

I'd like to express how disappointed I am in how overworked and understaffed they are here at Centennial. My friend had a CNA by the name of Ron, who seemed to be working one entire wing of the 3rd floor by himself most days she was there. I stood in the hallway watching while a lady by the name of Melissa stood watching as he went from one call light to another on both sides of the hallway. There were no other CNAs in the area for twenty five minutes as he ran from room to room. I did see a nurse go in to help him with patients but no one else was around. Where are the staff? Ron was very professional, not saying anything bad about anyone, even when I asked if he was the only CNA on the floor. He is a gem in this place! He loves his work and never once has anything negative to say about his co workers or patients, unlike the others we dealt with. My friend loves the food and the ones who come up from the kitchen each day to serve, including Sam and Rachel! The room is wonderful, and the place is great, just extremely understaffed. I hope that changes when we are back next month.

I visited this facility

The Center at Centennial was a beautiful facility, but I was not impressed by the individual patient care. They seemed to be lacking in staff to do what needed to be done. The caregivers were friendly, and when asked for help they would provide it. The building and the rooms were beautiful. I wasn’t happy with the food. The building was new, spacious, and bright. It had beautiful surroundings.

The physical and occupational staff are fantastic, however the nursing staff is horrible. Meals are always served 30-60 minutes late and are not warm by the time they arrive. Meals often come without a beverage or condiments (no place on menu for condiment selection). Call lights are not answered promptly. Scheduled for 2 showers a week, but only get one. Early in stay there was no attempt to get patient dressed, just left her in a hospital gown (clothes were available to wear).

My mother is on her third stay at Center at Centennial and it's always first on her request list. They take excellent care of their patients and the PT department is outstanding. The food is stellar and she looks forward to seeing what they will bring each meal. I highly recommend this place. She can even visit with her dog in the lobby. There is always something to do.

I am a past client of this provider

My mom was discharged from the hospital after a leg amputation. She went into Center at Centennial for rehab. It's a fully equipped rehabilitation hospital and the care that my mother got was top-notch. We couldn't have asked for a better care. The physical and occupational therapists who worked with her prosthetics during the rehab were great. It's a clean facility and they were accommodating. You can even bring in your pets into the lobby area for them to visit. Mom happened to be there during Thanksgiving. We didn't want her to feel bad so they allowed us to bring in all of our food and friends and family in on a banquet table and spent our Thanksgiving there. So that was great. They were also very good about informing us of her health and everything that was going on. We were there regularly and nobody had a complaint or a concern. I think she would have liked to stay longer. I would highly recommend this place.

My mother was a patient at this Rehabilitation facility for five weeks. She suffered a fractured C6 vertebrae in her neck and had bleeding on the brain due to a fall she sustained. The nurses and doctors gave her the best of care. Everyone that she (we) came in contact with were all professional and knoweledgable and caring when dealing with my mother. She never ever felt ignored or forgotten. Someone was always checking on her and making sure that she was comfortable, water bottle filled and her pillows fluffed and that she was comfy. We couldn't believe how well she recovered and how well she did through the guideance of her physical therapist and everyone working with her to get her where she could be home to begin her home therapy and begin to return to her normal routine. I would recommend the Center at Centennial to anyone who needs additional time to heal, to rehabilitate, and to get that one on one attention that is so vital to one's recovery time. The Center at Centennial provided holiday cheer, fun activities, games and the like to help keep their paiients active, involved and thinking; making their stay seem shorter than it actually was. It was like walking into a Five-Star Hotel. They made my mother feel important and how they treated her made her feel like a human and not just another problem for them. The nursing staff is bar none! I would recommend the Center at Centennial to anyone who needed additional time to heal and that person was quite not ready to go home and be be themselves. My mother attributes her achievements in getting around and doing the things she does to the therapists there at the Center. They truly kept her motivated and encouraged and yet were gentle in their manners towards her. It was if they couldn't do enough to accomodate her needs. And, as a bonus, the Center has a view from almost any room you were in! Beautiful Colorado right out your window!
