Heartland of Lauderhill was randomly inspected by Florida’s Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) on January 26, 2017. The state surveys found multiple deficiencies in the care provided by Heartland Lauderhill staff, including but not limited to:
- Dignity and respect of individuality of Heartland Lauderhill residents;
- Housekeeping, maintenance and cleanliness;
- Food storage and food safety;
- Medication errors;
- A resident’s right to have adequate and appropriate health care;
