    Before I admitted my husband into Palmetto Care I checked various facilities including Palmetto Care and at first l was hesitant to put him in this facility. I was not please with what l saw and how the facility condition was at ALL!! Weeks passed by and l finally had to make a decision where to place my husband, the social worker where my husband was at the time told me to go back and check Palmetto Care, she explained that a new administrator was in that he was making positive changes. I was still hesitant, but I checked it once again and I'm so very pleased to say. IT WAS AND IS THE BEST DECISION I'VE MADE. In such a short time the facility has done a 360 to the BEST!! From the cleanliness to the whole atmosphere. Mr. Jose Suarez has been a blessing in the sky and for Palmetto Care. I am pleased to say that my husband admit-ion was very smooth, Ms.Africa made it easy, she works with you step by step making you feel at ease. And always there for you if you have any concern, I am very thankful for all she did to help us with all the process. I would like to say that staff in itself is wonderful, there is no perfection to anything , but I see that the administration is trying it's BEST to be. My husband has many neurological problems and needs to go often to his doctors (neurologists), Belia, is always there when l need to make arrangements with transportation and the doctor visit. She's truly care for all the patients needs and goes beyond her call of duties. I go every day to be with my husband after work on the week days and during the day on the weekends. So I am able to see ALL the different function in this facility. My husband and I like to sit in the dinning area we eat our dinner together every day. While we sit there l see all the wonderful thing all the ladies in the kitchen do to make sure all their patients have their meals on time. I am impressed to how much they know ALL their patients name and their diets. It's incredible to see that. The nurses in Palmetto Care are very diligent in administering their patients medication and needs, I also see how they care for them. Working in Long Term Facility is not an easy job. It takes mush love and compaction to work with these patients. Thanks to the help of the CNA the nurses are able to do so. CNA, work is not an easy work...they do a lot for the nurses, and patients. They are the eyes of nurses, they make sure to inform the nurse if the patients showing changes in their health or demeanor. Their job is more than just changing pampers,bathing and changing bed, they truly care for the patients. I see how they treat them with love and respect as if they were their own family. Like in any place or position there is always room for improvement. Since New Administration the cleanliness of the facility has done a 360 to the better! The halls, and dinning areas are impeccable, as well as the activity areas and patios area. Every time l have a concern Moises always address the issue with professionalism. The rooms are still in need of improvement! I am very please to see how hard maintenance been fixing and repairing certain areas. I've noticed that some rooms have been up dated, they still need to continue with these updates to the rest of the rooms and facility. Most of these patients need to feel that they are cared, loved and respected. And simply by up dating their surrounding (rooms); better beds, replacing TV's that look more like monitor than a TV and a coat of paint you are making them feel that they are cared for, that their lives mean to someone. Palmetto Care, is a facility that can make this happen. The goal to this facility should be to make sure patients feel that they are cared for and that they are wanted specially in the last phase of their lives. Since the new activity director Patricia and assistant Tania I've seen a difference not only in my husband, but in other patients they now enjoy going to the activities! They didn't like going there before. Patio area is in need of TLC, some paint, plants, Umbrellas so the parents can sit outside.

    I'm very pleased to post this review for Palmetto Care Center. My mother is been living in this facility for a few months now. I made the right decision is choosing this place for her over a few others. It is a very clean, organized and very well equipped center. They maintain enough employees working so all the patients received the right treatments and required attention. The administrator Mr. Jose Suarez is always reachable, kind and very profesional with staff, patients and patients' family. Dr. Carlos Vallejo who is my mother's doctor is a great doctor. The Director of Nursing Ms. Rosa Albert is also very caring. The CNA and all staff are very caring, considerate and respectful with patients and families. I would like to mention The nurses, Mr. Michael Verga, Mr. Francisco Hernandez, Ms. Yadira Blanco for being very caring and attentive with patients and families. I would also like to thanks the social service rep. Ms. Betty Pascua for her great work, as well as admission reps. Mr. Maritza Fernandez and Ms. Africa Pena who made my mothers admission process easy. The Dietary Ms. Yolanda Ow is great too. The CNAs Ms. Nidia Rodriguez and Ms. Antonia Robert are very caring with the patients. Mr. Joel Olivares and Ms. Alarcon in charge of Wound Care are excellent. Mr. Alex Salim, Physical Therapist was very profesional and gave my mother a great treatment during her therapy sessions. I will definitely recommend this facility as rehab center as well as living facility to any one who is looking for a great place for their loved ones.

    Nursing staff is the best & they really care! During hurricane Irma, even though they had their own families to take care of, they were there to take care of patients first!

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.
