    My brother has been a patient at Life Care of Port St. Lucie for a little over a week. We are impressed with the cleanliness, the food quality, and most of all, the attentiveness of all of the staff. Every request that my family has made has been done cheerfully and efficiently. The wound care that he has been getting is exceptional, and after his upcoming surgery, he will be returning to Life Care for Rehab. I completely trust that the staff there have my family's best interest at heart.

    My 100 year old Dad is there and said the staff is attentive and very nice. After two days of theropy he is 70% better than when he went in. I read reviews and it looks like the few bad reviews are from people who have not stayed there, and only wrote what someone told them. Look people, no one is excited to be in rehab and would rather be some other place so they complain. Try doing rehab at home ans see the complaints you get ??????

Compare The Number of Problems

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
