NOT FOR YOUR LOVE ONE

Rose Garden Fort Myers unit. If you want a loving caring place for your loved ones with adequate medical care in my opinion the Rose garden is not the place. The following is my opinion of the experience of the worst year of my life in 68 years. This is from [dates removed]. I have had several bad years in my lifetime. But this time that I spent at the Rose garden has been the worst year of my life ever. A little bit about myself I am retired US Air Force Master Sergeant Medic worked 11 years in Emergency Rooms. So, I know a lot about Medicine. This place does not provide adequate medical care in my opinion. They cannot even give a shot or take a simple blood sugar for a diabetic. [name removed] is the so-called charge nurse. She is an LVN licensed vocational nurse aka licensed practical nurse LPN not A RN registered nurse she does not have the education. On several occasions she has embarrassed me by telling me that I stink in front of other staff and in front of other residents. I do have cancer, and this causes a particular odor and she's insulting me and making me feel bad. When I first became a resident [name removed] lied to me and my family. She told us that C pap machines were not allowed at all. After researching it the state law says that with a physician’s order C pap machines are to be allowed in all assisted living facilities. I got a letter from my VA doctor stating that I was to be able to use my C pap machine. [name removed] decided that this letter was not good enough and would and denied me the use of my C pap machine. I have severe sleep apnea and I'm five times more likely to die in my sleep than a person without severe sleep apnea. I do not get deep sleep or REM sleep and I have been deprived of it for a whole year because of [name removed]'s actions. I put in a complaint with The Agency for Healthcare Administration AHCA and this really made her mad. Her aggressive behavior even showed more. I got a letter from my doctor stating that I was to administer my own insulin because I'm a diabetic. She did not like me doing this and at her first opportunity she stopped me from administering my own insulin. In doing so I had to hire a home health nurse RN registered nurse to come in and give me insulin injections. She had a nurse practitioner overwrite a doctor's order and changed my insulin from twice a day to once a day and changed the amount that I was receiving. This caused me to have higher blood sugar averages and changed my A1C dramatically. She is overstepping her bounds as an LVN. This was also in my acca complaint. By doing this it also took away my testing supplies so if I was getting into a condition where I was severely low, I could go into a diabetic coma due to her actions. I do not detect severe slow lows until I'm under 60% which is quite low for blood sugars. If you run out of a medication on a Friday afternoon you will not receive that medication until sometime on Monday. This has happened to me several times. They should be able to get the medications on the weekend instead of letting residents do without important medications. They need to establish a protocol to do this . Some other medications nowadays have adverse effects even if you stop taking him for one or two days they should not it jeopardize patients health in this way.

UNACCEPTABLE CARE

My Mom was a resident here. The worst mistake of my life. MOST of The STAFF THAT CARED are gone. It's for independents only, because there is very little assistance. My husband says he hopes no one ever asks his opinion of this place. The majority of her belongings began to disappear, I caught one staff member in the act of the theft. Her brand new set of towels that my husband purchased for her are gone. She caught COVID-19 from her roommate. Her physician wrote her a prescription for an "all natural" supplement, NRF2, listed in the Physicians Desk Reference, just like Vitamin D. Which, when she was getting it helped immensely!! Then she started having the falls. No one ever notified me that she was out of the 'prescribed' supplement, until I called the company & was informed no product had been shipped since February. Then because of all those falls she was labeled as needing Maximum Assistance, disqualifying her for a much desired ASL Facility. IF THEY DON'T FOLLOW DOCTOR's ORDERS, What else won't they do? TOTALLY UNNECESSARY & UNACCEPTABLE CARE!!!

A good place for Dad

This was the first place I had my dad. It was not perfect but it was better than others I have seen in the area. The staff was good , activities were good. It was a clean place. The staff was helpful and they were very responsive. The only reason he left is because he got an infection. I would move him back there if I could.
