    My father in-law had a major stroke and was transferred here from Jupiter Rehab. His situation was a little different than some as he had some decision making problems as a result of the stroke. He was mentally competent to an extent and could hold a conversation but when it came to making long term care decisions for himself and as well remembering anything on the short term it was pretty bad. Also to show how competent he was he called the police twice in Jupiter rehab because he believed that the staff and my husband were poisoning his food. He also claimed that my husband was "abusing the elderly" which was also proven to be false as we met with a case worker from DCF because of his outlandish claims. We came in and asked for an emergency psych evaluation which was suggested by the social workers here but my husbands dad was not seen by any doctors for two weeks. My father-in-law was trying to leave to go home on multiple occasions without medical clearance. To my knowledge the emergency psych evaluation was never done and the doctor that was on staff finally saw my husbands dad and after one visit with him released him to go home because his father told the doctor he would have someone there 24 hours a day to care for him at his home in Georgia where he actually does not have anyone there to care for him but a 70+ year old lady friend who cannot lift him should he fall out of his wheelchair or off the toilette. My husbands father is paralyzed on the right side of his body and believes he can go home and drive a car...scary right? After all was said and done and we fought hard to make sure my husbands father was not released into this bad situation. Come to find out, at least one of the social workers was going behind our back like a high school teenager telling his father what was happening, she told him of the emergency psych evaluation, as well as the Dr. who wrote an initial letter stating that he deemed my husbands father mentally incompetent to make long term care decisions. This dr. Was a friend of the family and had met and spoke to my husbands father at length. He was also the head of the ER at Daytona Medical for many years and now works as an Emergency Room Dr. In Tampa. I would trust his word over the "Dr." they had see my father-in-law at Darcy Hall. But none of that matters as the social workers later called us to tell us that they could not use the letter from the Dr. who deemed him incompetent because it was "a family friend" (even though it was their idea in the first place). Do you think that this Dr. would risk his medical license by stating anything untrue? He is a man of the utmost integrity and knowledge and his resume, position, and accreditation's are there to prove it. The whole situation was sickening. We were called by the social workers to let my husband know that his father did not want to see him and we thought that the social workers were trying to help us for the best good of my father-in-law but come to find out they didn't really care. They didn't give my father-in-law any follow up care information or phone numbers should he want to schedule a home healthcare aide or any i home therapy...very sad and disappointed with the way the people at Darcy Hall handled this situation. I feel like they just wanted to release him because they didn't want to have to deal with any of it. So now my father-in-law is back at his home in Georgia that does not have a kitchen or a bathroom that is wheel chair accessible and frail older women who is "checking on him" and bringing him fast food to eat everyday instead of getting the care he needs to make him stronger. I hope and pray that he is okay but my instinct tells me that he will be back in the hospital in a few weeks. So BEWARE of this place and really any place like it. These people don't really care about what's right and good for the patient. They are just there to do a job and get paid. Very very sad!!

    I was thrown out into the streets with nowhere to go. I was not given an explanation at all. I came back in time for curfew. I signed out for the first time in three or four days as both of my feet hurt. I'm currently in the hospital for the second time since being tossed out. I have a serious infection. Also to they threw me out with none of my medication. Just cut off from my meds just like that with a snap of their fingers. All because a detective came to visit me and wouldn't have returned as I had dealt with the situation. My brother is a law enforcement officer with the Sheriff's Dept. Because according to my husband this is what was told to him regarding them just tossing an older lady, me, out into the streets knowing I hadn't anywhere to go and it was dark outside. 11:00 pm. I've contacted attorneys because I know my rights. Also it's very dangerous to stop a patient's meds some of which can cause seizures which I had and have a broken nose as a result and a huge abrasion on my face. It's healing now but I went to through horrific pain being displaced by these people. Quite a few of them I got along with. But a great deal of the nurses hadn't any understanding of a patient's pain and completely ignorant of pain management and mental illness. One of the newer patient's offered my husband hardcore pain pills such as oxycontin and I reported this and nothing was done. Nothing. Stay far away from this place. It may look pretty but make sure your loved one has their own doctor to look out for them.

    A relative was recently transferred to Darcy Hall from the hospital following an aneurysm. He was making very good progress when he arrived at Darcy. At Darcy the only thing he received was neglect. His IV fluid was not monitored as he was virtually drowning, and he got bed sores. Had his brother not discovered this, he may not have survived. Thanks to Darcy, he had a major setback.

    My family really appreciate the level of care and love that my mother in law Mae Anna Harris received when she lived at Darcy Hall, from the time she was admitted all the way to her passing they made us feel like family and was professional about her care, and the Nursing staff the best, also all staff member from the front of the house to the kitchen made my family feel like we were at home.

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
