    I had a knee replacement scheduled for August 11th and decided to visit LCCE the week prior to my anticipated admission because I understood they provided rehab services in this area. The facility showed very nicely and the Director of Admissions said they had about a dozen dedicated rooms in the rehab section I was shown. The following day I notified the admissions office I would arrive on the 14th, a date I later confirmed with the admissions office. I also confirmed this the morning of the 14th. I did arrive the morning of the 14th as planned and was very carefully placed in a wheelchair and rolled through the dedicated rehab area that I was shown to what appeared to be the long-term care portion of the facility. Upon arrival the room was clean but not set up for knee replacement rehab. While it did have a proper hospital bed it did not have a proper reclainer chair, shower or proper assist bars for the toilet, three essential items for knee replacement rehab. While the bathroom deficiencies were not noted immediately, I did point out that the room did not have a recliner. I was told that this type of room did not have a recliner. I pressed the issue and they did deliver a recliner however, once I got in it it was so low to the floor that I could not get out of it. They did deliver another but it looked like a used household reclainer, not rehab grade. I was impressed that they were able to deliver lunch quickly and seemed to go out of their way. After the second chair was delivered we waited all afternoon for some sort of orientation, even after requesting that the director of admissions visit with us. I also directed several questions to staff with no follow-up answers. Sometime late afternoon I was told that they were trying to change the room but would not have an answer until the following day. On at least two occasions staff came in to take vitals but got distracted and left without getting them. The general staff were, I believe nice people, but concluded that they were ill trained for their respective positions. I could understand they may have not had a planned discharge, but the fact they didn't or wouldn't come to my room to discuss my situation was very irresponsible as I was told by the Director of Admissions that they had rehab rooms available. In the end, it felt like bait and switch and watching how they were conducting nursing and custodial services, I simply lost all confidence in the facility and I checked out the follow morning.

    My brother had ankle replacement surgery in 1/2017. Yes! Ankle replacement surgery in Naples. This facility was the only place I could get him a private room covered by medicare. This was the first such case they had and went out of their way to research care for recovery. Top drawer nursing and PT care. Food certainly not gormet, but good variety and quality. Also, ice cream parlor open every day from 2:00P to 3:00P. Free for patients and $1.00 for guests.

    I was in Life Care center of Estero for rehab for a hip replacement. The experience was horrifying. To make a long story short...I had to find the nurse and tell her I was leaving. She told me I couldn't until released by a doctor. Never saw a nurse or doctor in the 3 days I was there. No doctor was available to see me. I told her I was leaving and why. She rudely told me I would have to pay the bill myself. Medicare would not pay if I left without a doctor's release. Fortunately, I had my sister with me and she and her friend helped me leave. I found out SHE LIED TO ME ABOUT MEDICARE. I call the place " little house of horrors. I was so happy to be home and get excellent home therapy.

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
