The care and attention my mother received was beyond what your staff was required to give a patient. On two separate occasions when we came to visit my mother, there was one of your employees holding my mother’s hand and comforting her. My family and I were so impressed.
Other positive qualities we observed in your staff include timely information provided to us by your administrative staff, excellent care provided by the nurses, therapists and all of the support folks, and the level of cleanliness of the facility.
Thank you,Tom, family member of patient
This place is the best nursing center. I was so happy to find it after the two prior ones I visited. Thank you to all the staff for the care they gave to my dad. If we ever need to rehabilitate again, we will definitely be back.
Words just can’t quite express how much everyone at Beachside has provided comfort as well as care that contributed to my recovery.
I recommend Beachside to not only my primary physician but everyone I talk to.
People who need help and who want to get well, would want only Beachside to be there for them, encouraging them.
From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank each and every one of you for the tender, loving, extra-special care you gave Doug. Thank you for the personalized support and care.
The love and concern that was shared with me today and during the past few days has touched my heart. You have taken good care of Dad for the past eight years. He made so many friends. He was surrounded with love and care. I will never forget you. Thanks!
I’m suspicious that this facility has only 3 stars. My mom has had the misfortune of having to require care post-hospital twice. The first time she was here for 2 months. We anticipate her stay to be only 3-4 weeks this time. The first time I was given a list of nursing homes. I visited about 12 of them in one day. This one stood out above the rest for the following reasons: cleanliness (I immediately noticed this when I walked in), the patients appeared to be happy and well cared for (nobody was left in wheelchairs sleeping in the hallways looking neglected like other facilities), many of the staff has been there over 10 years (some past 20 years!) which translated to the quality of the care and compassion they have for their patients.Because this is a critical factor to me, I have to point out that the staff is on top of everything. They are responsive to requests and inquiries and their communication with my mom and me couldn’t have been better.For my mom’s second post-hospital care, she didn’t hesitate coming back here. Many of the staff have told her “I remember you” from her stay here 6 years ago. That says a lot about how much the people here care.The facility was remodeled after my mom’s first stay here. So my comments are based on the facility then. It is even nicer, but more importantly just as good in quality and cleanliness as before.If there is any doubt about this facility I highly recommend visiting in person to talk with the staff and to tour the facility yourself after you’ve visited the other ones in the area. It’s an important decision to make for your loved one. There are so few good quality care facilities out there. Beachside is one we recommend without hesitation.
I’m amazed with the staff. I’ve visited and worked in nursing facilities. My mother 95 is getting warm and good care while having therapy after a partial hip replacement. My mother was an RN and is usually critical of facilities. She keeps saying Beachside is nice and clean. It is. They have a very nice patio that allows you to enjoy the ocean breeze. This is used a lot for visiting. The staff is conscientious and caring. At the same time they take time to get to know the patients and bring joy to their life. The place is well maintained. This place was highly recommended by professionals.
This place is great they really treat the patients well. Very clean and friendly they want to get you well and on your way. You never want to need to be in one but if something bad happened I would hope they had a bed for me. From the top down, most of the staff are the best in their field. I was in here a year ago and my aunt is in hear now. 90% of the same staff are still there. This place really cares for their patients.
My 79-year-old mother, Marta, recently had muscle repair surgery on her right leg, that required skilled rehabilitation. She was sent to Beachside Nursing Center in Huntington Beach. She had been a patient there before for an injured leg. As an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) for 40 years, I have been to hundreds of skilled nursing facilities, providing patient care and transportation to and from them. I use to say to myself, “would I put my mother in these facilities if needed”. Most of them I would have to say no because of the poor care patients received, and the below standard overall appearance of these facilities, as well as the below standard of professionalism I have witnessed from the staff(s) . Having said that, I take GREAT PLEASURE giving Beachside Nursing Center the most excellent rating possible for any Nursing Center in Southern California. I have witnessed the most professional group of skilled persons, from the administrative staff on down to the maintenance staff. The social workers made sure that she received the best care, during her stay, and post-discharge. The nursing staff were amazing in her medical care. The CNA’s were always very attentive to her needs. They made her feel very comfortable, at a time when she was scared. They gave excellent compassionate care at all times. During her post-surgical recovery, a wound care nurse noticed her incision site becoming infective. Had it not been for her sending my mother back to the surgeon immediately, the infection might have spread into her bones and other vital organs causing serious illness or death. The Director of Nursing, and the RNs/LVNs supervised her overall health care, and in my honest opinion they were better than RNs I have seen at hospitals. By far they have set and exceeded the bar in nursing excellence. The Physical Therapists did an excellent job of of taking her through all the exercises to help strengthen her leg, and to be able to walk with a walker during the healing process. The maintenance, laundry cooks, and housekeeping staff were all great. The facility is clean at all times, never any of the “typical odors” you encounter in most other facilities, and the appearance is very beautiful inside and out (patio area).I think that my community is very fortunate to have a nursing facility such as Beachside, that has such a dedicated staff of professionals that gives you great, loving care for your short term care needs. I as well as my mother, Marta want to thank and give our love to all of you from our hearts……
