    My brother was a patient for three years at Island Health. Because our family is 7000 miles away across the Pacific Ocean we chose this facility as Merrit Island was his home. My other brothers sister in law lives in the area and would visit each Friday. She said he was always treated with care, always bathed and clean clothes. Our phone calls each week were always met with kindness and consideration that we were so far away. The staff would go out of their way to be sure that my brother was given the portable phone and that he was aware of who called him. We received copies of dr visits and were kept up to date with his care. The staff were always courteous and would help with any questions. His son would visit from New Jersey and was always impressed that he was well cared for and happy. I can only say from our family a huge thank you for all your facility and staff did to make my brothers last three years of his life content, safe and cared for. He always told us he was in a hotel and everyone was really nice and made him laugh. Much aloha to all of you for taking care of our loved one. we will always be grateful. Aloha, Jeanea

    If I could give no stars that would be better. My Dad chose this facility for his rehab after a hospital stay. This place is infested with spiders and ants. LIKE TONS. There were nests in the hall ways. We brought my dad some medicine for his bed sores, since they weren't treating them at all and it was stolen. They charted that my dad had physical therapy on his last day there before being transferred to hospice. He wasn't coherent that day and couldn't move his legs. We know there was no therapy but they needed to get their money. Complete insurance fraud. We arrived on the last day there and my dad was covered in urine and when we asked for a nurse she said "Go back to the room and wait your turn". Nurse Barbara was awful to us. She talked to us like we were scum. Nurse Cathy was sweet and compassionate. One of the CNA's whispered to us "Get him out of here". This place is horrible. Don't let your loved ones go here. I wouldn't let my dog stay there after knowing what I know now.

    My aunt just died today and they stole almost two hundred dollars from her and the food that she could not eat they would serve it to her I would not send my dog there and not even a loved one. Never saw a doctor and the nurses are a joke.

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
