    The facility is clean and well maintained. The therapy is AWESOME! The majority of the CNA's are WONDERFUL - there just aren't enough of them! They are seriously overloaded with too many patients per Aide. It wouldn't be so bad if the nurses would lend a little teamwork and help those girls out.!!! Other than that and being homesick, my father was content with the stay. He said that even the food was pretty good - most days.

    Mother in law spent last several months of her life here. Very clean, up to date facility. Caring staff.

    Rehabilitation facilities are not 5 star hotels. They provide essential services. People who complain about meals and service sometimes expect "Grand Hotel" accommodations along with valets, maids, et al. Somethings to consider, most patients are suffering, which does not put them in good humor nor does it give them patience. I admit some rehabs are better than others. Emerald Healthcare in Port Saint Lucie provided my 91 year old mother with outstanding care. Did she complain? Yes, however, she was in pain, and uncomfortable due to her illness....not due to the care she was receiving. Once her health stabilized (she gained 10 pounds - from 81 lbs. to 91 lbs.!!! in 3 weeks), she realized how caring most of the staff members were and their dedication to her well-being. I give it a 5 out of 5 rating for excellence. Follow-through when my Mom transferred to an assisted living facility was fantastic! The Emerald Healthcare staff communicated and sent necessary records so the transfer was seamless and trouble-free.

    My mother was there 2 years ago for rehab. It became clear recently that she needed 24/7 care and Emerald was the only place she wanted to wanted to go. Her first meal was a baked sweet potato that she had been craving and roast pork. She loves sitting in the dining room looking out the window seeing palm trees swaying. She has been in several(7) rehabs and she requested to return to Emerald for long term care. Is it perfect, no, her aides are attentive. Nurses, they could use a few more, Doctors could better communicate. It is clean, the food is great(according to my mother), she is happy there. We are happy knowing that their team knows what her wishes are and cares for her.

    My mom has been here since 2008. They are wonderful here and take very good care of my mom. The facility is clean, food is good and the CNAs, Nurses and all Staff are very nice too. It is a comfort to know this because to work in a facility like this can be such a thankless job. Good Folks!!!

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
