Boca Raton Rehab Cited for Violations by State of Florida
A random, unannounced re-certification AHCA survey was performed at the Boca Raton Rehab nursing home on 8/25/16 which resulted in 17 pages worth of violations. State surveyors cited Boca Raton Rehabilitation Center for the following resident care violations:
- Failing to follow special dietary orders for a resident at risk for choking in the nursing home.
- Failing to monitor a resident’s medication administration, resulting in medication mistakes.
- Failing to accurately chart in the resident’s records.
- Failing to register employees for required background checks.
It is unclear which of these violations, if any, resulted in harm to residents. However, the lengthy citation issued by the State of Florida may be used in subsequent lawsuits against the facility.
