    My mother stayed at Palm Garden on and off for over 4 years. The staff was extremely attentive, kind and compassionate. When my father became ill and needed long term care without hesitation they accommodated my request to have them together for the last few weeks of his life. Caring for people in the final years of their life is a very difficult job and requires patience and understanding for both the resident and their family. Palm Garden was there for my parent and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing rehab or long term care, they are the best!

    I have worked at Palm Garden of Clearwater for the past 8 years. I have had the pleasure to meet so many great guest and families. I am really excited with the fantastic news of adding new private rooms for our rehab guests. Come visit and tour our newly renovated building. It is absolutely stunning!

    Run!!!!! Do not put your loved one in here. Run away now. Had the most horrible experience with my dad in here. Called 911 to get him to the hospital if we left him in there he would probably be dead now. You can contact me. I'll be surprised if they leave this up here. Thank God the roommate for my dad was able to talk. This place should be shut down. My hand to God I'm telling the truth.

    I loved the nurses aides, they truly work hard and are sweet to the patients. I am extremely dissatisfied with the level of care my grandmother received beyond that. She was transferred there after a hospital stay because they said they could care for her. They let her refuse therapy and in one day transferred her to another facility after my Grandfather left from visiting her. They didn't even give him the courtesy of a phone call letting him know she was being moved. Every thing was done underhanded and extremely unprofessionally.

    My mother has been there for almost a year and I couldn't be happier with the care. I have been a nurse for 40 years and have been in and out of dozens of rehab and long term care facilties both in Florida and in the Boston, MA area. Palm Garden is, by far, the best.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
