    My dad just spent a week at Life Care Center of Punta Gorda, and we were both very happy with their professional and friendly staff, the facility, and the food. LLC is bright and clean. You can eat in your room or in the dining room, which is also light and airy. There is a small library with a fish tank, and a central outdoor courtyard. The nursing and physical therapy staff were professional and friendly. In general, the staff at LLC acted more professionally, and LLC was cleaner than what we encountered at the hospital here in Punta Gorda. A giant thank you to Craig, Hope, Janette, and Tina who all cared for or fed my dad; Crystal the caseworker who answered all my questions about life after discharge; the PT staff who gave dad extra time in the weight room, and Ilyana and the other delightful ladies at the front desk. My only suggestion is that admission and discharge are bewildering to the patient and family. A checklist or short letter about what to expect on both ends (did the list of meds come from the hospital, how does home healthcare work, etc) would be fantastic.

    My mother has been at this facility for over 4 years. Each time I've left I feel she is well takin care of.

    I really feel the staff Here truly cares, thet took great care of my mom and we're compassionate. I would recommend this facility completely. My only reason for 4 stars is they do not communicate well with patients family. They should have a family guide to give out to family when their loved one enters. Every time I wanted an update I had to find the nurse for one question, then go ask pt staff for another question and case managers job is insurance and discharge. It would be helpful to have a welcome packet letting us know there is a family care meeting at various intervals and who and when to get information from staff about rehab progress and such. Thank you to the facility for your awesome loving and compassionate staff.

    They fraction all the care to different department so there is no one individual to register your complains or concerns with. If you loved one is not getting there medication or it is being administered incorrectly, it is up to the family member to go the nurse on that particular shift to complain. Between compartmentalizing the management and care, coupled with vacations, time off, changing shifts and employees; you never see the same people twice. It is an impossible management situation. They start you off with a case worker and monthly meetings, but you never see the same people twice and no one every knows who was at the last meeting or what was said or agreed to. Everything is for optics and not the patients actual 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
