Kaiser sent our sister (early 50s) here for high-oxygen respiratory rehab after a long ICU/hospital stay. She was able to walk short distances on admission and expected to improve to independence at Ft. Van - a sad joke. The facility is drastically understaffed, staff mostly uncaring and uninformed and some untrained in oxygen, atmosphere chaotic and warehouse-like, slow responses to call button (up to an hour). Our sister received no PT at all for 5 days and was forbidden to get out of bed herself, a huge setback. PT ended up being too little too late even though 2 of her therapists were great. An oxygen emergency was bungled by staff clearly not trained in basic oxygen delivery or triage.

Clothes lost in the laundry, low-quality food, etc. The overall negligence in big and small ways led to her precipitous decline and re-admit to ER and ICU.

Non-senior-aged oxygen-dependent people seem to be the last to get help here and that's not OK. Kaiser should offer a better alternative.



Overall -- I was dissatisfied. You come to a SKILLED NURSING CENTER, in a weakened state - some both mentally and physically, Thankfully I still had my wits about me. I was happy -- but very frustrated.

I was there for a month for a badly broken ankle. I was treated respectfully most of the time. The staff and caretakers are overworked and spread thin. You will not get a bedpan or a trip to the bathroom -- until it is an emergency. You will wait 20 minutes or more. Many people could not hold it.

I was told that my bed would be changed while I was showered -makes sense? Well. my bed was not changed at all while I was there. I was there for 28 days.

They are short-handed. People that required more care than I were getting there needs met.

Now shall we talk about food! am out of space -- The food is overcooked and an unskilled person ruins perfectly good ingredients to make slop.

They cannot even do Cherrios right.Oh, you get Cherrios, no milk or sugar!

Daytime care needs help!



Pushing the nurse button for bathroom doesn't work. Just go in your bed. My mom cannot hold her need for toilet for 20 minutes, until someone gets up to see what's up.

Last year my dad was put there, I walked in his room right after the helper dropped off his lunch. Next to his tray of food was 2 containers of urine. So nothing has changed. When people are recovering from strokes, they need help.


I have just finished up doing ...

I have just finished up doing my N.A.C. clinical s here. I will miss the staff as well as the residents. I was amazed to see how much the staff care about the residents. The food looked and smelled amazing. There was a strong effort to make sure all residents had all the fluids they could have or wished to have. The N.A.C. I was with made it a point to ask when ever she was in the room what she could do for the resident to be more comfortable. At NO time was I ever encountered with an unpleasant odor.The staff at Fort Vancouver has changed my way of thinking about convalescent centers or long term care facilities. Thank you for a great experience.


If you are being discharged fr...

If you are being discharged from the hospital and are not ready to go home yet, don't worry about it. At Fort you will receive great care. The staff are sharp and very personable - they really do care about you. While I was there I found out that it is rated 5 stars by Medicare. That's the best possible.

Food and keeping weight on small patients

If your parent is a skinny person who needs to keep weight or needs to gain weight and has any special diet needs, this is not the place at all. The food is AWFUL (the food in the hospital was actually better) and always arrives to the room cold. My mother needed a special dairy free diet, and she has lost a lot of weight in the two weeks there. They make no special effort to make any soy protein shakes or take any effort to try and keep weight on her like the did in the hospital. Be prepared to take food daily to whomever you care for in this facility.

But the physical therapists and the occupational therapists are very good. Some of the care assistants and nurses are really good, some are not as they are in a rush. The place never smelled, and was always clean.

fort vancouver convalscent is a great place to work and a great place to get therapy. they are so ni

I worked at that nursing home and they are so caring I regret having to move from there because the employes are about the best you can have at a nurseing home. nobody ever wants to go to a nursing home they rather be at home, but if you got to ever put a love one in a nursing home the employes try to make them feel welcomed and try to make them smile to help with there recovery so they can go home faster.
