  • Madison Pointe Care Center New Port Richey, Florida 34653

    My mom was here a few months ago and they were not bad but now my dad is there and it is terrible. His room mate dropped his pizza on the floor and the help came in after we complained the man needed help and they just picked up the pizza and put it back on his tray for him to eat. This man needed 24/7 help. he looked like he had a stroke. I was told they don't have enough help to take care of people like him My question is why is he here if they can't help him. My dad gets PT in the Am and is left by himself in his room. Why don't they walk him in the hall so he can get stronger and go home? The place smells terrible and no one helps these poor people with their food. Some of them need help and need to be fed but they just put the tray down and leave. I pray for these poor people every night. Someone needs to go in there and not let them know they are coming and see what goes on. The staff can't help if there isn't enough help but the people who owns the place should make sure there is enough help to care for these people like they should be care for.. They take their money so give them the care coming to them.I know that I will never put anyone I know in there again.

  • Heather Hill Healthcare Center New Port Richey, Florida 34653

    My mother fell and had to be taken to the hospital. The administrator did not seem to know any answers to my questions.I had to talk to nursing. It appears that the nursing director runs things. Many times there is only one cna on the hall. When they are short in the kitchen they use paper and the food is cold.

  • Menorah House Boca Raton, Florida 33428

    My brother-in-law was a resident. The staff was not truthful and the administration uncaring about him and his issues. All they cared about was money.

    The medical staff was incompetent and refused to recommend specialists because of the cost. When he was transferred to the hospital (3 times), the hospital told us the medical care at Menorah was woefully lacking.

    The only reason I rated this one star instead of zero is because zero wasn’t an option.

    Do not choose this facility as I am confident you will be extremely unhappy.

  • Carlton Shores Health and Rehabilitation Center Daytona Beach, Florida 32114

    I stayed at this facility after a surgery, for rehab. I left in far worse condition. The aides would answer the bell but say they would be right back and never show up. (not all but most). When you need help to go to the bathroom, it's impossible to wait for the next shift who may or may not have a better NA on duty.

    The food was so bad and unappealing, you either stayed hungry or ordered and had something delivered- which wasn't easy since they lock all the doors very early. When I say the food was "bad" I don't just mean cooked bad. It was old and had a bad smell. The drinks were watered down so all tasted alike. The snacks they say they provide are almost always all gone.

    I complained about bed sores and nothing was done other than 'wound care' giving me a sample size lotion of some sort to put on myself.

    I asked many times to see the doctor assigned to me but only saw him once. The care was by far inadequate. The on staff nurses had far too much to do to attend to anyone who really had issues.

    The facility looks great when doing a tour. Those special little rooms that are decked out are for looks and not used frequently. They're for tours I guess-people looking for that special place for mom.

    I left with a bad infection that could have only come from that facility. I complained to "professionals" who I trusted and they did nothing to help me.

    I will always regret my stay there and I pray for the ones who will be living there the rest of their life there. My advice to anyone looking for long term care or a rehab…keep looking!

  • Sunbelt Health & Rehab Center-Apopka, Inc Apopka, Florida 32703

    Sunbelt nursing home and Rehab in Apopka is one of the worst nursing homes in this area: The lobby smells of urine. Patients lying in their own waste and some with severe bruises on their body that look like abuse which their staff could not explain. Rudest nurses except for 1 that took care of my father. All they do is sit around and talk all day barely checking in on patients who need their help. Yet the Dept of Children and Families DCF does nothing to look into the abuse and SHUT this facility down. My father died days after leaving this facility in worse condition before and the hospital referred us here. Don’t let your loved ones stay in this death camp. Why aren’t,t these sh#tholes regulated by the state to safeguard patients and loved ones. Nursing home negligence and abuse should be punished. We had enough evidence of physical abuse and bruises on our father and have hired a lawyer. Names of the abusers were also collected and will have to respond.

  • Magnolia Health and Rehabilitation Center Sarasota, Florida 34239

    Very uncaring workers. Our longtime friend is in there and sat in wet clothes for 2.5 hours. I asked 8 people for help and they all passed the buck. Today when he was transported from the hospital to Magnolia he fell ( it was an accident) The people who transported him asked a nurse for help and to clean his wounds and she walked away and 1 hour later an aid finally cleaned his wound. They do need better training and where is the head nurse, manager etc. . He also was suppose to have a Cpap for tonight. We were told they has one and they did not. He can die from their mistakes. I think most of the help needs to be fired and better trained people should be working there. They really need to be shut down and all new people hired and they need to be investigated. I really need it to be 0 stars but I can say the place is clean but that's all.

  • Spring Hill Health and Rehabilitation Center Brooksville, Florida 34613

    Bed sheets were not changed. They didn't bathe or even sponge bathe my mother. The food was horrible. The staff was not very attentive. They over-medicated her to the point that she didn't even know that I was there with her. After requesting staff to come to her room. Finally somebody came in to give her narcan. I asked about taking her to an emergency room. They said she will be fine. They insisted that we come to pick her up and she passed away 3 hours later.

  • Life Care Center of Sarasota Sarasota, Florida 34243

    Horrible, absolutely horrible, my husband had no care, rude and uncaring staff, the same food for 3 days in a row (and it wasn't good), he was throwing up and had diarrhea and nobody cared that he was getting dehydrated. Nobody came when called. After I complained and was promised things would change it just got worse. Run, run if you love your relative.

  • Spring Hill Health and Rehabilitation Center Brooksville, Florida 34613

    I urged my wife to take rehab from here following her surgery and that was a mistake. The best, hands down best feature of Spring Hill Rehab is the Therapy staff. The show great care and interest in getting their patients back to health as quickly as possible. They take a personal interest in each patient and are very friendly and kind. They are very professional and I am happy to sing their praises. The nicest person you will meet in the entire facility is the Greeter as you enter. It all goes down hill from there.

    If you are not ready to take an active interest in your own care or that of a loved one, then this place is NOT for you.

    On the medical side, I found you need to ask question of what medications are being given, especially those that were routinely

    used prior to admission. If you ask for anything, specialist appointments etc, follow up. You have no idea how large those cracks are things fall through. Proactive is the keyword and don't let anyone try to intimidate you. On admission you are given a packet of information stating your rights as a patient. You need to read that and if necessary stand up for yourself or your loved one.

    The food is miserable. Typical hospital type food that is cooked for a large volume of people. Visit often and bring in food!

    The halls or corridors have a odor of urine or feces. I never once in the two weeks I walked the halls experienced at fresh, clean or sanitary odor. The room cleaning is limited at best. Someone from housekeeping does come in but beyond changing out the small trash can contents and straightening up the tray, little else is done unless you make a request that the floor is

    swept or moped.

    When my wife was admitted, they automatically booked her in until the maximum day the medcare would expire. Trying to get them to change that date to an earlier one is a difficult task and every obstacle will be placed in your way to prevent it. You can read into that anything you like, but that was my experience. You also need to follow up with any home care or equipment you ask for

    upon discharge.

    After surgery at Oakhill, we were offered a choice of Spring Hill and another facility close by. I wish now I had done my due diligence and made some inquiries. After her release I spoke to 4 different doctors's office and not one of them had a positive word for Spring Hill Rehab. I would urge everyone to do their own homework before putting yourself or a loved one into any facility. They do not refer to this as a Nursing Home but it certainly is a close as you can get.

  • Freedom Square Rehabilitation & Nursing Services Seminole, Florida 33772

    Please don't take your loved ones here. There is literally no nursing care. They are so understaffed. Call buttons are ignored. The night staff is abominable. Physicians are never called when needed. My brother had wounds on his feet. They sent their 'wound nurse' once in a while…who put cream on the wounds and wrapped them. I finally moved him to another facility where a wound DOCTOR saw him. Conclusion: his leg was amputated due to the poor care he received at this rehab center. The rehab staff was great! They tried. If all you need is rehab this may be OK, but watch your loved one carefully if any medical attention is needed. There is none. Beware. We thought we were going to a 'Freedom Square' facility. It is NOT. It is Brookdale…not Freedom Square which has a good reputation for its care.

  • Whitehall Boca Raton Boca Raton, Florida 33433

    The doctor at the hospital talked my mother into using this facility for recuperation from a broken hip. Unfortunately the only good thing here are the therapists. The staff is overworked and unresponsive. You'll never see the doctor or his surrogate, even if you try to set up an appointment. The food is pretty awful and you can wait a half hour for someone to help you to get to or from the bathroom.

  • Stratford Court of Boca Raton Boca Raton, Florida 33433

    My mother was there for a month over the 2-17 holiday period. The therapists were great but the nursing staff was awful. You could never speak to the docutor of physicians assistant The aides all spoke with heavy accents and my mother who has a hearing problem could not understand them. They would speak Creole to each other around the patients which was very confusing to people with hearing problems.. There was little effort to make sure she understood anything that was going on. The food was mediocre at best. The aides would sometimes wait 15-20 minutes when she or her roomate would ring the buzzer and needed to go to the restroom. The place is understaffed and the staff they do have is not very good.

  • Tuskawilla Nursing and Rehab Center Winter Springs, Florida 32708

    The rehab is pretty outside but when you enter the place the people are rude starting with the blonde hair receptionist…The cna's and nurses are cold and rude…They have the residents sitting at the nurses station for hours….One old lady was sitting there smelling like 2 day old pre and poop…You walk past her and the smell will have you stomach turning inside out and upsided down…The take your personal belongings and give them to other people to use…They throw everything in boxes and tape them even if it is food that will spoil and the bugs was in the bag…They put poop in clothes in plastic bags and put them in a box and tape it…How do you treat the people's property like that?If you know like I know run pass that place and keep on going…I would not put my dog with those people to take care of….Don't go by the rating of the state it is not true you will see when you put your love one in the place that you made a mistake…Most of these places are just in it for the money and don't pay good so the service is terrible..How do you send a resident out for care and they lose them and don't know where they are….Then you call the residents family to ask where transportation drop them off at….Then had to call the transportation company to find the resident…All those people should be fired including the director of nursing sitting at a nice desk and no clue how the place is being ran….Things have to get better for the people that are in that smelly hell hole….The state should take the owners licences to run these places….Take the residents money and allow them to be treated like crap…God bless those poor people because they need help in getting out of that hell hole…They all have to answer to God one day…The elderly should be treated right because you never know how long your love one will be around…Last but not least my in laws make visits in the morning and they really got to see what that place was really like left on the toilet for along time….Left in poop and need to be changed…I received a call at work to be told about the place not being clean and you have to beg someone to take the resident off of the toilet…All about money not treating the people with respect….

  • Wave Crest Health and Rehabilitation Center Melbourne, Florida 32901

    I was there to get an orientation for my class because we're doing clinical class on Saturday. As far as I can tell it's an little more up lifting then the other LTF I have been to and they can been a little depressing at times but that's on of the reason I'm getting into healthcare because I do CARE.

  • Regents Park of Winter Park Winter Park, Florida 32792

    I am very upset with this place. My mother has been there 7 days, she has yet to get a shower. I called and asked about this to the social worker, she assured me she would get her a shower, 24 hours later and still no shower. My mother asked Sunday if she could get a shower, she was told that she can have a shower on Wednesday or Saturday, she wasn't offered a shower either of those days, tomorrow will be 8 days….WEDNESDAY maybe she'll get a shower then? There is a dead cockroach in the corner that has been there since she got there, I suspect it will still be there after she leaves. Their "diabetic meals" come with a dessert and no it's not sugar free. I was told that they cut the sugar back by omitting whip cream if it comes on the dessert. The room my mom is in gets very cold at night because the other patient gets hot at night. There's a note on the thermostat that says "do not touch", I guess the other patient's comfort is more important than my mom's? She can't sleep because she's so cold, so I asked the social worker if she could change rooms, she said that was not a problem and that she would move her tonight if not first thing in the morning. It's 2:00 pm the next day, and she still hasn't been moved. I called to get her discharged as I am done playing with these people and now no one will answer at the nurse's station or at the social worker's desk. When she calls for someone to come help her they take their time strolling in…10 min in fact, I timed it myself. If anyone ever has an emergency they might die before someone comes in. When I went to visit on Sunday there was a man outside sleeping hunched over in his wheelchair, no one around keeping an eye on him. When I left later he was still there in the same position. I think there are a lot of people working there, but not a lot of people working. I expect my mother to be treated with the same respect and care they would expect for their mothers and if this is the way they treat their mothers then no mother should go there! Be wary of this place, do your research, and don't let the hospital suggest a place to you, I made that mistake and now my mother is suffering for it.
