The Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration recently added an area nursing home to its “Watch List.” Brookdale Palmer Ranch Skilled Nursing Facility is located at 5111 Palmer Ranch Parkway in Sarasota, Florida. In November, 2014, this facility was cited for, among other things, failing to obtain and implement physician’s orders for immediate resident care, failing to conduct accurate assessments of resident health conditions, failing to provide services to residents that meet professional standards of care, and failing to provide care and services to residents to allow them to obtain their highest practicable well-being.
Residents of Florida nursing homes have rights, including the right to be free from abuse and neglect. Under Florida law, the denial of necessary care to a nursing home resident is defined as and constitutes both the “abuse” and “neglect” of that vulnerable adult. if you believe a family member has become the victim of nursing home or assisted living facility abuse and neglect, I provide a free consultation to discuss the claim and explain the process. Our fees and costs are contingent upon making a successful recovery against the nursing home corporation. James Keim, Attorney at Law. (941) 485-7600.
