I was sitting in a wheelchair near the nurses station when the RN Charge Nurse said "another fu--ing train wreck!!! And slammed the new patients chart down on the desk!! Little did she know that the patients daughter was standing right there and heard her ranting and raving!!! The patients daughter talked very nice and was soft-spoken. I talked to her away from the nurses station because she was in tears. The RN Charge Nurse looked in her direction and rolled her eyes. I told her that behavior needed to be reported to the chief clinical director. I told her that whenever I have an issue, (I think his name is David) handles it immediately!! I was with her when she spoke to the chief clinical director. The poor girl was in tears and afraid to leave her father at harmon because of that nurses behavior!!! I told David I heard her say it, everyone heard it! David said he would handle it and I never saw that nurse in the facility again!! He told me he would not tolerate rudeness toward patients or their families and it looks like he meant it!! If I have to go to rehab again, I hope I can find David wherever he may be working now and just go where he is. He was in charge of that whole mess of a facility with all these issues to deal with and he was ALWAYS so nice to me and my roommate. He would check in on us and make sure we were ok before he left at night. And I mean night!! He was there after 7pm about every day. I saw him on weekends there also. I'm not one to praise people unless they are utterly outstanding, excellent with communication, goes out of their way to help someone, etc. David, the chief clinical director when I was at harmon in 2008 is all of these things and more!! You can tell that he genuinely cares about you. Chad the assistant director was outstanding too!! He handled issues right on the spot as well. They made an excellent team because they had the same desire to make harmon medical better for all patients. There are too many negatives on here!! I just wanted to point out two outstanding young men that changed harmon in a very short period of time!! If either David and/or Chad ever see or read these reviews, send me an email and let me know how you are doing and where are you working now!!
Nurses and CNA's are very rude, and neglect their patients. My best friends father was there numerous times. The time before his passing, he had requested to view his own medical records, and they told him NO, he was also diagnosed with MRSA while in the facility, and when I had mentioned to his nurse about a feeding tube for nutritional needs, she said he didn't qualify for one. One of my patients recently said she'd rather die than ever go back to this place! Honestly, with every horror story I've seen and heard regarding this facility, why aren't people reporting this place to the State Board? My patient had said her first day in this facility, 3 people had passed away, others were being left with feces in their briefs for 45 minutes or more after pushing the call button. Something needs to be done about this facility, there are other care givers out there looking for work, if these nurses and CNA's don't want to do their jobs, hire the ones who will, and do it with care. Hope something is done soon!
I'm a daughter of a soon to be patient in this facility. I'm in Texas, however I keep in touch with my mom. When she told me she was going to this facility for rehabilitation; I decided to look up the feedback and quality of service she will be having. Upon reading the feedback and stories of some of the patients I became very concerned and skeptical; eventhough one of my sisters was up there I felt that wasn't enough, because she's very passive. I asked for a temp. leave of abscence from my R.N. job, got us a rental car for my husband (who insisted she'd be fine), and our two teenage boys (only ones left at home out of five) who are totally excited to go to 'Las Vegas'. That being besides the point, when we finally arrived to the facility and ask for my mom, OMG never in the farthest of the most indegenous worlds had I seen such a careless staff, CNA's, R.N.'s, Houskeeping and whatever else it takes to run such a facility. I never identified myself as an R.N. until I asked the doctor on duty to remov my mom from there to another facility. He hesitated at first then I let him know who I was and asked him if he would have his mother in such a dispicable place. Yes your right he said'NO'---I wasn't surprised and the very same evening my mom was moved. Thank God she's better and Hopefully home soon cause she is actually getting her physical therapy.
Do your homework on these 'facilities' it'll be worth it.
A terrible place to be if you are dying, blind & deaf – Recently my father was placed at the Harmon facility, by St. Rose Hospita. My dad is hard of hearing, legally blind and was in extremly ill health, totally relyant on the facility for all of his medical and physical needs.
While in this facility, and about a day before being sent to Desert Sprins Hospital, his gold wedding band was taken off his hand. I tried in every way possible to plead with this facility for the return of his ring, but it was not! To add insult to injury my mother was hospitalized and remains hospitalized, we have not yet been able to tell her of our farthers passing, let alone the fact that someone from this facility stole his wedding ring.
If you have a loved one sent here, please make certain that all jewlery and personal items are removed and taken home. I am not saying the nurses were bad, they were not, but clearly someone who had access to his room should be held accountable for this devistating act of theft.
THANK YOU IS NOT ENOUGH! – After recieving a three way by-pass surgery at a local hospital, I was sent to Harmon Rehab to get stronger. Last year, I watched my brother battle for almost 12 months, in and out of different hospitals, rehabs, (Harmon wasn't one of them). The kind of care he recieved was just awful! I remember arguing with nurses who insisted on wanting to give him Blood pressure meds even when they had just checked it and saw it was already low. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.
After almost a year, sadly my brother succumed to diabetic complications. I will never forget all the pain my family and I saw him go through. So when I discovered I would need by-pass surgery, possibly going through what he did weighed heavily on my mind. Only by the grace of God and very ataquate healh care professionals at the hospital and at Harmon Medical, I was able to make a full recovery.
The Harmon Rehab facility has greatly improved with caring medical staff, clean facility, food, and therapy of all types. All the caregivers who are there now put my mind at ease and helped me to a speedy recovery. I would like to recognize some of the nurses, CNA's, staff and doctors.
Dr. L. Tbaldi, Dr. Din, Nurses Bryan, Elsie, Seon Kim, Mel, Tiana, Raquel, Respiratory Darryl, Sue, Bonnie.
If I have forgot anyone, please forgive me. I will never forget the great and compassinate care I recieved. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough, but it comes from my heart. A. Mercer.
Rehab HA!!! – This was one of the worst placees I have ever seen. My mom went there for rehab. What a joke!!! She was supposed to have rehab daily but they didn't even get her out of bed. We discovered after she was transferred from there that she had developed a pressure sore from not being moved. Some Rehab huh? She called me in the middle of the night because she was in so much pain and the staff there was yelling at her. Telling her she was a big baby and that there were other people there in just as much pain that were not making as much noise. She needs to be quiet or she will wake everyone up. Don't send anyone you love there or even your worst enemy. I could see if it were an isolated incident but it happened a couple of times.
Thank you everyone – it was a very scary time for our family and the staff at Harman put us at ease. My father is not the easiest patient and yet they worked with him and made him feel like a king. I was even surprised at the food. Dad enjoyed his daily grilled cheese sandwich. The physical therapist got dad up and moving again. Thank you all.
Complete, total care – I had surgery at one of the bigger hospitals in town, as part of my recovery I was sent to Harmon. Everyone that I have dealt with at Harmon was attentive to my needs unlike the experience I had at the other hospital. They listened to what I had to say and made me feel at home. All of my caregivers treated me like I was a person and not just a room or chart number. My family was always accommodated and treated with respect. The rehab folks there were very good and pushed me to get better. Because of the great care I received from all of my nurses and docs I was able to go home much sooner than expected. I have no complaints about this hospital. As much as I hope I never have to be in any hospital again, if I had to, I would choose Harmon as the place to go.
Death Care Not Health Care – This place needs to be investigated by the appropriate boards. My mother was held captive here for several weeks. They do not provide rehab, they are nasty, and should be shut down. It's nearly impossible to see a real doctor, and even the doctor admitted that this place is a travesty. If you have loved ones, you must help them escape!
I wouldn't send my worst enemy here – My mother was there and everytime she turned on her light she would wait hours for someone to give her care. I watched nurses come in and turn right back around without helping her. One evening a nurse walked in and actually said "oh it's this bitch again" and then he left without help. They didn't tell us about appointments they had scheduled. They wouldn't give her the pain medication she was supposed to have. They wouldn't even give her the meals she should have been getting. One evening she started asking for pain meds around 6 in theevening. She was finally given her medication at 8:30. No one ever bathed her and she only had her sheets changed one time. It was the most horrible thing that I have ever seen as far as care giving.
