The state of Florida and the federal government have a legal responsibility for monitoring every nursing home. These agencies have the authority to impose monetary penalties or hold payment from Medicare if the nursing facility violates rules and regulations. Typically, the more serious the violation, the higher the monetary fines, especially if neglect or abuse caused harm or could have caused harm to a resident.
The nursing home received seven complaints over the last three years that resulted in a violation citation. Additional information concerning the facility can be reviewed on the comprehensive Florida Adult Protective Services Website.

- Failure to Ensure There Is a Pest Control Program to Prevent/Deal with Mice, Insects, or Other Pests – citation #F925 date April 8, 2019
The state investigators determined that the nursing home “failed to maintain an effective pest control program and failed to ensure a clean and sanitary environment for [one resident room].” The state survey observed meal trays in resident’s rooms and saw “multiple small black insects crawling on the left-over food particles and beverages.”
The “small insects were also crawling down the ‘over bed’ table to the floor and the wall. A trail of small insects exited the residents’ room.” A Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) “pointed out the presence of more small black insects.” The Director of Housekeeping stated that “he had not been made aware of the observed concerns.”
In a separate summary statement of deficiencies dated November 20, 2018, the facility “failed to ensure the environment was free from pests, related to roaches, identified in two (East Hall and West Hall) of six nursing unit hallway areas and [two rooms].”
One resident stated “a few days ago, there was a roach in his room. He tried to put his shoes on when he was getting out of bed, and there was a roach under his shoe. He squished it with the shoe.”
A separate resident said, “she has seen roaches around [indicating that] they spray, but the roaches still come in. They come out at nighttime.”
In a third summary statement of deficiencies dated May 5, 2017, it was determined that the facility “failed to maintain an effective pest control program as evidenced by documented proof of sightings of roaches and rats throughout all units in the facility to include resident rooms.”
The survey team conducted an initial tour of the facility. One resident said that “they saw bug and rodent activity in her room recently [saying] ‘yes, over in that corner and on top of the table.’ She pointed out to the far corner across from her bed and the corner next to the roommate’s bed.”
The Maintenance Director “confirmed that they had reports of sightings of rats, and he personally has not seen a rat or rat droppings in the building.”
