    Everything written by owner is totally B.S. . Only thing positive about this facility is some of the aides who left it, some of the nursing staff and the rehab dept. Regarding food only the grits served are acceptableThe medical staff, with the exception of one PA from Cuba, are Inadequate sometimes incompetent. They prescribe meds without examination guessing at dx..( frequently incorrect) Medical staff ignore the requests of patients/physical therapists recommendations for physician consultations.

    To whom it may concern, on the behalf of my concerns for a patient/the patients at Fort Pierce Health Care whom are suppose to serve "24hour skilled nursing care, care for medically complex patients, Alzheimer's and dementia care, long-term care services, a discharge planning program, physical, occupational and speech therapies, comprehensive post- acute care and short term rehab" with a mission of core value stating compassion, honesty , respect, integrity and passion. It all sounds good but is it really good ? No doubt! Fort Pierce Health Care compassion is to show deep awareness of the suffering of another and alleviate it in their words. Truth be told the only compassion you'll be shown is when your love one is gone from that facility and is no longer because they're killing them slowly from falls, lack of therapy to initially get well. But you have to deal with that burden now because that's the only option your love one have after a decade. Fort Pierce Health Care honesty is suppose to be the quality of being fair and truthful , yet when things happen there it is thrown under the rug when spoken to before getting down to the bottom of an issue with your love one. Respect is also suppose to be a high regard and esteem for others. A high regard and respect for others wouldn't be stealing patients clothing or other belongings from their rooms or putting them in bed improperly, having ants or other insects in their rooms etc. Integrity is suppose to be doing their job to the best of their ability even when no one is looking but Fort Pierce Health Care will try to get away with things at the best of their ability if you're a easy target and seen as a pushover. Their Passion is "strong enthusiasm and devotion to their mission but they're failing their own mission and guidelines. I, Willnesha Williams is the POA of a patient at Fort Pierce Health Care where she has been for a decade or more . Since becoming her POA after her daughter passing in 2011 I can account for several falls , ants found in her room and on her and DCF/ elderly abuse being . As of 2017, she have fallen 2 times . One of those times was in April during transport using the hoyer lift where she was rushed to the hospital, admitted to ICU with bleeding on the brain and multiple staples. They were glad to admit that they use that same hoyer lift on another patient directly after her incident and nothing went wrong. A month later they allowed her to fall again getting her into the wheel chair where she once again had to stay at the hospital with a knot on her head. We are talking about a 72 year old woman here, whom has had strokes in the passed and has little mobility because she only have one leg and suffers complications and after affects from those strokes years ago. 1 leg was amputated years ago; today August 7,2017 she suppose to had a procedure done for a artery blockage Prior to getting her to the doctor that was going to prepare her for this procedure the doctor(DR.DEMIJA at Fort Pierce Health Care gave me mouth about speaking for her. She was in so much pain , leg was completely black and crumpled( shoudn't be if she was receiving physical therapy as they(per FPHC) said)... This procedure could not be done because her surgeon said once he got back their he realize how bad the leg was messed up and the vein, whereas it cant be straighten out. If it cant be straighten out him going in was either 1. Going to cause her to bleed to death because he need to go throw the groin but can hold enough pressure due to the leg being stuck in the position as of lack of care. 2. Amputate that leg and he doesn't want to do that right now unless she develops a sore since taking a risk of putting her under anesthesia will cause complications due to her past history and age. It's really sad that she now has to suffer in pain given only aspirin or pain meds because a facility we entrusted did not do their job in giving physical therapy so her leg is stuck in a position. She's basically already dead to those at FPHC that are suppose to care for her.

    Really bad smell everywhere, very rud nurses and people working. My father has been there for a lil more than a month and still not having a schedule rehab plan yet. They have to practice dialysis to him but they don't do it at their place, so they have to send him somewhere else to do it, well, they couldn't get the purse for patient to get him on time so he missed his appointment, then it happened again 2 days after, finally they have to send him to the ER because his situation was critical......almost passed......

    Gave it 1 star because that's the least you can give to be able to rate it. Mother had wound vac that the staff couldn't seem to take care of. Dirty silverware, dirty floors, horrendous smell in bathroom and a general feel of visiting a dog pound. Patients wandering halls barefoot, in wheelchairs and shuffling around. Took her out and would never send anyone there.

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
