    At one time I was a resident there, I got real sick. I was sent to JFK NORTH HOSPITAL. The Hospital check me out, take blood and remove and replace my Foley catheter. They said I had a severe UTI and found my legs had a bad rush on them. Colin Gordon and Portia Surtain kick me out of Avante of Lake Worth Florida. The Doctor call and talk to them and ask why I had no home. I had no home to back to. If I could I would give this place zero stars.

    I'm a Resident here and at one time it had 5 stars to it name. Today I would say 1 star. I will say this the CNA's and the nurses do a great job. The upper staff needs work bad. The Administrator and the head of the Director of nursing should step down or go somewhere else.

    I have been working here a little over a year and during that time I have been promoted twice. The executive director has an open door policy and gives all of her employees equal opportunities for advancement. I love what I do here at the facility and I think we have a strong dedicated team.

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
