My mother has been at this facility for only 24 hours and will be there only for a very short time. The staff is wonderful; however, the physical plant is in a state of utter disrepair. Broken air conditioner in her room, closet with brackets for a rod to hang clothes on...but no rod. Covering for the above-the-bed light spontaneously falling off, nearly hitting her in the head. Bedside commode missing pieces so that it has cut her thighs when she has used it. But the worst is that an aide came into her room to take the shower chair from her bathroom for another patient to use, and I watched as she carried it directly from my mother's room into another patient's room-no disinfecting whatsoever. As a nurse, I was appalled to see this break in basic contamination prevention. I will be calling ACHA to report the the unsafe physical plant at this facility.

    Please do NOT place your family member here if they have dementia issues or are a fall risk. In the 5 weeks she was there, two separate times,she fell, the second time breaking her hip. The nurses are nice but VERY short staffed at night

    As my father’s Parkinson’s progressed my mother was unable to care for him. As a result, he was placed into Riviera Palms because it was close enough Mom could visit daily.
    At first glance, the nursing staff seemed nice and professional, and the facility seemed to be a good place to entrust a loved one, but the longer he was in their care we realized it is not at all what it seemed. Within a few months problems with his care became apparent. He was not receiving the proper care for his condition at all and the nurses/aides were slow to react when needed. Dad had a drastic weight loss after being in their care. After questioning them, the staff was very rude to my mom and have gone out of their way to make her feel uncomfortable when she visited. We removed my father!

    Response: I have also had problems with the staff and their inability to properly care for my father. When he uses the call light they take their time answering and then hand him an urinal instead of assisting him to the bathroom, as he requests. I moved him as well.

    Response: My mom was there under 2 weeks, staff was @#$% off that she wandered around (dementia) someone stole ALL NEW CLOTHES I got her for admission & the Director had me sign that I was receiving all her things back (that they were in laundry-- everything she owned???) & that he would bring it to the house, which never happened! Then they sent her home with me in old sweat pants & velour top, NOT EVEN AN AXULT DIAPER OR UNDERWEAR ON!!! WOULDN'T return calls from myself or my daughter...
