My mother was neglected at Horizon Specialty Hospital.She told us this and we could see it because her skin was leathery from being not cared for and bathed. She begged us to just take her out and the nurses acted like they didn't know why.
After discovering her feelings about the place and my family seeing her all dirty - I did some search and do i KNOW WISH I HEEDED THE ADVICE OF THESE REVIEWS!!
My mother had a stroke at Horizon Specialty Hospital and it went unnoticed for WEEKS! They claimed it was medication and she was just fine- yea right!! We requsted diagnosis NUMEROUS times and never got one.. never talked to a doctor or heard ANYTHING.
Do NOT leave your family here!!! If you care about them find somewhere better!!! How can a medical facility see a person with a functioning brain one day and then the next act like a zombie and NOT KNOW IT'S A STROKE??
People need to know about their neglect and lack of care!
this is the worst Specialty Hospital around if you have a loved one here do your best to get them out. They not only don't care about your loved ones it is also a very Dirty place for being a Hospital
Las Vegas, Nev.
Good try Miss RN – Horizon Specialty Hospital is one of the best in Clark County!!
THEY NEED TO BE SHUT DOWN – As a registered nurse in Las Vegas, I was very weary when the case managers at Valley Hospital told me that my mother was going to be sent to a lower lever of care. I have heard poor reviews of Horizon before and was skeptical. Because of mother's diagnosis, I had very few choices of facilities that could accomodate her. I met with the rep at the hospital and he assured me that my mother would be in good hands and that she would see that same doctors she saw at the hospital so I went to tour the building.
The tour was terrible to say the least. I pulled up to see the building to find numerous employees smoking on the sidewalk. One of them even tossed out there cigarette butt and it hit my car. When I went in the building the smell was so horrible I was gagging. I could not sit on the couches in the waiting area because they were soiled and had what appeared to be urine stains on them. After waiting 30 minutes, I was greeted by an Admissions Rep named Melissa. We walked around the building which looked like a scene out of Hostel and smelled like lawn that that had been freshly manuered. She was unable to answer any of my questions that I had about the services they offered (although she claims to be a nurse) and smelled as if she had not showered in days.
Everything about this building is horrible. From the rude and incompetent staff, to the area, to what I observed the nurses doing when they were caring for the patients. Do yourself and your love one a favor and send them to Kindred down the street. My mother went there and got the best care possible. Horizon could take a few pointers from them after they gut the building and get proper staff.
Thank Yoy – Thank you all very much for working hard at being so helpful and making my patient stay at your facility a comfortable experience. I just wanted to recognize and commend you for your efforts, organization and hard work.
GOD BLESS HORIZON SPECIALTY HOSPITAL IN LAS VEGAS – After an especially horrendous hospital experience for my son at another Las Vegas rehab which included facility many thoughtless and uncaring acts resulting in several trips back to ICU, he wisely refused to return to that rehab hospital. I choose not to name it because I don’t know what repercussions may result from that.
I will say, however, that , in my opinion, the hospital’s outward appearance and its name suggesting warm, gentle, kindness, belie it’s level of care. I believe that my son would not have survived there.
It broke my heart to see him treated so callously. I just felt powerless.
I had been re-assured by the liaison from this rehab, who came to see me prior to my sons discharge from the ICU, that their rehab was a great place and “sold” me on it. I guess you could say “my business” was recruited.
I was told that it was one of the best places my son could be – I am sure that there are some dedicated and compassionate people working there.
I am grateful that my son was assertive enough to emphatically refuse to go back there. I didn’t know what to do so I shopped around and was fortunate to find Horizon Specialty Hospital. It isn’t a fancy, well manicured place because the money, it appears, goes to the care of the patients.
After being admitted to Horizon, my son’s health improved daily. He was cared for and loved by the staff. Some of the nurses called him “honey” and “dear”. It was clear that they were in the health care business to help people get well, not to profit from people’s misfortune. With Horizon’s care and a good support group, I saw my son improve rapidly – physically, psychologically and spiritually.
I hope you find this information helpful.
Best Place to Heal – We are from another state and came down to Las Vegas because our son was the victim of a violent crime and, as a result, became a quadriplegic on a vent. After being in ICU for 30 days, our son was initially sent to another rehab on Flamingo by the staff at the ICU.
There were multiple problems caused by the nursing staff at this rehab that sent him back to ICU three times in the next two months... including a surgery that had to be done due to their error, several bouts with pneumonias and infections, and a horrible, huge bed sore on his back that was obviously never looked at or it would never have gotten so huge, and other bed sores and issues perpretrated by an uncaring staff.
We even found him laying in his own feces!!!
It was an absolute nightmare. Our son was scared to death to be returned back to this rehab from the last trip to the ICU and begged us to find another place to put him.
We looked around Las Vegas and checked out other rehab facilities. After careful deliberation, we settled on Horizon Specialty Hospital - Boy are we glad we did ! ! !
We moved our son to Horizon Specialty Hospital 2 months ago. He is treated like family there... spoken to with lots of love and genuine compassion. As a result of the caring staff and the quality of his care there, our son has showed dramatic improvement in all areas of his health... his breathing, his bed sores, the pneumonia and infections, his attitude, etc. We call it "the Get Well Hospital".
If there are any issues whatsoever brought to the attention of the management, they are immediately rectified and the entire staff is brought into a meeting to discuss the issue(s). Our son has never gone back to the ICU since he has been here (unlike the other place that indicated going to and from ICU was a normal event for one in his condition - what a crock!)
Horizon has it all... Case Management, Respiratory Therapy, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, RN's, CNA's, a Pharmacy, and much more, including a caring, compassionate staff and management. There are 2 Doctors on staff who make the rounds daily and are on call 24/7.
We can't say enough about this wonderful place except that if you have a loved one, family or friend, that need a great rehab, Horizon specialty Hospital is your ONLY place to take them !!!
WORST FACILITY IN CLARK COUNTY NEVADA – The hospital is supposed to be a rehabilation hospital. Nothing of the sort. Never a doctor there. I feel the patients are drugged. The hospital is the most dirtiest place in the world. There is never no one in charge there to handle your complaints or concerns about a patient. Most of the employess/nurses are not certified. This place should be closed down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to list a rating to publish this and I don't even give it a one. If you have a loved one there. please get them out and transferred to a real hospital.
