    Currently I am a resident in this facility and I have had a great experience so far. I have been to 6 different facilities and never had an experience like this one. The therapy department Fort Pierce Health Care taught me how stand something I have never done before. I am now to a point I never dreamed that I would be. I would recommend this facility to anyone that needs therapy in the community. My mission was to find a rehab that could benefit me and help me reach my goal. Fort Pierce Health Care has helped me achieve this goal. I have walked more than I ever have thanks Kerline and Ralph and the rehab team. They have taught me things I never knew I could do since my injury. Ben makes sure his staff motivates patients to not give up and that makes everyday fun when you come to therapy and that is a plus. The nursing staff is very helpful and kind especially Stanley and Nioca, they are my favorite. They are on-time with medications and fulfill patients needs in a timely manner. Also the nursing team takes care of needs promptly and deserves 5 stars!! The facility is a nice facility to bring your loves ones, there are people that work here that really care and will make sure your love ones are safe and really taken care of. I am speaking as a current patient in the facility.

    They never transfer you the phone over your family in that place. They never let you know how is everything going with the rehab of the patients, they are careless. Is going from bad to worst this nightmare place. 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......they are also thieves!getting paid my father disability and didn't tell me!

    I have been here a week now and I admit I was apprehensive about this nursing home. However as I got to know the nurses and workers things have improved. All you have to do is speak up to the right people and issues will be resolved. I find this nursing home the right place to come to rehab.

    Absolutely unprofessional and will be reported to corporate office immediately. I am not the one to play with rude and disrespectful personnel that is suppose to be a professional establishment for the public.

    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.

Compare The Number of Problems

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
