    Concern about competency of the medical personnel. My mother arrived at four from hospital. They new all day about her arrival yet did not order medication which is critical for her heart condition. She went to the "cardiac unit" doesn't seem specialized yet. Time will tell she may be better off with home health care and assistance for her PT at home. At least she will have medication given when needed.

    The Life Care Center of Sarasota is clean, the food is good, and the grounds are well kept, but the beauty stops there. My mother was there for two days, and on the second day, she left via ambulance after the nurse called 911. They failed to restart my mother's anti-arrhythmic medication, and she went back into A Fib. She passed away the next day due to complications from their medication negligence. The staff does not answer call bells in a timely manner, if the call bell is ever answered. My mother was in bed and desperate to use the bathroom. She was trying to get out of bed, even though she wasn't strong enough to do this. Jason, some sort of therapist came in while this was going on. He lectured her about the dangers of climbing out of bed without assistance and how she could wind up back in the hospital with a broken bone. And then he left her room. He neither assisted her to the bathroom, nor did he send in anyone to answer the call bell to assist her with getting out of bed to the bathroom. An aid washed my mother's face with the same wash cloth she used to wash my mother's butt right after she washed her butt. I spent six or seven hours with my mother each day she was there so that I could provide some care for her. Don't leave your loved one in this facility unattended. I called the facility the night my other was admitted to the hospital to tell them of the admission, and I was told her belongings would be neatly packed up in Life Care boxes and stored. When my sister went in the next day, my mother's belongings were in the room as we left them the day before. The rehab services might be good, but I wouldn't know, since my mother went once.

    The rehab services here are excellent other than that, its pretty bad. I'm actually surprised that this place is still open. No one can answer your questions because they are too busy or they have to leave and that's if you can actually find someone. They are clearly short staffed, weekends are worse. My suggestion would be to keep looking.

    This facility is beautiful and appears to be a nice place for recovery however, most of the nurses do not follow through with the care of the patient. I have left three voice mails for Pam Williams (care Coordinator) and she still has not called me back. No stars for service. 5 stars for cleanliness.

    My mom prays that she will go to sleep and wake in HEAVEN!!! YOU decide if you want to go here

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
