    A close friend's family member was recently staying at this facility for full-time care and was not treated well, leading to what I believe was an early death. A tour of the facility looks like a nice place, but the staff is negligent in their care of patients allowing bedsores to form and not attending to the patients in a timely manner. The doctor is difficult to get a hold of and juggling so many patients that they do not get the attention they deserve. The food is sub-par and downright depressing. I would highly recommend looking at another facility for your loved one.

    If I could possibly rate this place a 0/5 stars, I would do that, as a better representation of the service/care you can expect your loved one to receive at this facility. Starting with the basics: it takes 30 minutes for someone to respond to the call lights for nurses/CNAs. This means that if you are in immediate need of care (e.g. - to use the bathroom, or if you are about to fall, etc.), you are more or less out of luck. This unaddressed issue (which WAS addressed with, but not corrected by the social worker), led to my mother soiling herself. When that happened, it took additional time to get additional staff to help clean her up/change her bedding, which meant that she was sitting in soiled undergarments for as long as that took (sometimes only a few minutes, sometimes 10+ minutes). Ultimately, this situation led to a UTI, and is ongoing, despite being treated with antibiotics. During her 3 week stay at Sabal, my mom experienced such a bad degree of skin breakdown from lack of mobility and the staff neglecting to turn her, that she developed numerous bed sores. This is a further point of irritation because prior to the development of these sores, it took a team of 2 people to take her to use the restroom. I don't find it plausible that the staff overlooked these forming sores as they pulled her pants up and down, perched her on the commode, and then wiped her. Despite them having DIRECT contact with that area, it took a visiting friend's curiosity to investigate why she was in so much pain, and THAT is when the bed sores were discovered. For those who don't know, bed sores do not open overnight. They are preceded by red spots, which then turn purple before opening into sores. This only means one thing: it was most likely noticed, but just not reported...which meant further skin breakdown and the possibility of infection until it was addressed. After it was addressed, the doctor ordered her to be turned every two hours. Twice this last weekend, I was there for 3 hour periods, and had to push the nurse's button to have an attendant come in to turn her, which leads me to believe that when I am not there directly overseeing the situation to make sure that she gets turned, she is either a) not getting turned at the frequency the doctor ordered or b) not getting turned at all. My mom's oral health has also taken a big dip while at Sabal. I do not believe that her teeth have been brushed at all, aside from when I have been there and brushed them, and that, accompanied by poor nutrition, has now lead to fairly severe tooth and gum decay. I have mixed reviews of the wound care "specialists" at Sabal. I highly suggest if your loved one ends up there and needs wound care, that you ask for Lulu. She is actually very good, knowledgeable, and seems really care about the patients. Overall, though, I have been mostly disappointed, especially after receiving phenomenal care at Morton Plant Hospital. Now that mom has deteriorated to such a degree that rehabilitation doesn't appear to be an option, we are trying to work with Hospice to get them involved. I would love to know why it has taken the social worker 5 days to get the Hospice order signed and faxed to the Hospice representative. Both myself AND the Hospice worker followed up with her this morning, and several hours has lapsed with no return call. I did not have a lot of confidence in placing my mother in one of these facilities in the first place, and I am sad to say that pretty much every horror story you hear about from places like this, I have encountered first hand at Sabal Palms. I would not recommend this facility, and in fact would implore others out there looking for care for their loved ones to be aware of some of these things as you go around to tour properties. Ask questions. And don't just ask the staff. Ask the residents. I wish I had.

    I am employed by Sabal and I must say I am damn well pleased! As a employee I must say that after being a CNA for over 15yrs, this healthcare facility, Sabal Palms, is by far the best facility I've worked in, or even walked in for that matter! You walk in the front door and you aren't greeted with foul smells or mean people, but calming aromas and polite smiling faces! At Sabal, we're a family and once you in trust is with yours, they become our family too!

    This facility is top notch when it comes to compassionate care. Everyone one was helpful and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate placing a loved one in their care.

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
