Tamarac, FL Nursing Home Abuse?
We’ve got you covered
What Former Residents and Family Members are Saying About Tamarac Nursing Home Negligence
Tamarac, a suburb located in Broward County, appears to be a quiet, beautiful city to retire in. Unfortunately, reviews of nursing homes in Tamarac are filled with concerns regarding poor care and filthy conditions. As of this original post, Tamarac Rehabilitation & Health Center has an average of 1.5 stars out of 5 on Yelp, with reviewers cautioning others to “stay away.” One reviewer stated that her father had been admitted to Tamarac Rehab to recover from ankle surgery on a Friday. By the following Wednesday, he was “unrecognizable” and the reviewer immediately started the process to have him discharged. The next day, the facility called her to inform her that her father had passed away; he had been force fed solid food, left unattended, and choked on his food.
Other reviewers of Tamarac Rehabilitation & Health Center noted that “the hallways are always crowded with patients [in] wheelchairs yelling and screaming,” and that her brother, a diabetic, was fed the same diet as the other residents. Another family member of a diabetic resident noted that her father’s health plummeted during his stay at this Tamarac nursing home. Numerous requests to provide meals appropriate for diabetics were ignored and staff informed her that her father’s high blood sugar was due to being in a new environment. The reviewer eventually transferred her father to another facility. Despite the negative yelp reviews, Tamarac Rehab enjoys a 4 out of 5 star rating on Medicare’s nursing home compare.
Heartland of Tamarac, another nursing home located in Tamarac, has been criticized by resident families for deplorable conditions. This facility is now called Nspire Healthcare Tamarac. Multiple family members of residents recalled that call lights were rarely answered and the staff are often on their phones or talking and joking amongst themselves and do not help residents. One reviewer observed that during dialysis, patients were left alone in the hallway while the staff spoke amongst themselves in another language, and ignored a patient who was “screaming that they are cold.” Her own mother was seated in a wheelchair for four hours, causing her feet to become swollen.
Assisted living facilities in Tamarac do not seem to offer much better. A review of Atria Tamarac stated that the reviewer’s mother, who suffers from dementia, was often left alone at meal times when she could not understand that she must eat. The reviewer also stated that “[t]hey have a lot of issues administering medication; missing doses, repeated doses, discarding missing doses, etc.” Additionally, HarborChase of Tamarac has faced lawsuits alleging assisted living negligence and preventable falls.
When Can I Bring a Tamarac Nursing Home Neglect Lawsuit?
The reviews of Tamarac Rehabilitation & Health Center, Nspire Healthcare Tamarac, and Atria Tamarac show how vital is it that loved ones of nursing home residents and residents of assisted living facilities remain vigilant regarding possible neglect and abuse on the part of the nursing home or assisted living facility. Ignoring call signs, disregarding dietary restrictions due to health issues such as diabetes, leaving residents in wheelchairs for hours, and mixing up medication are clear signs of negligence. Your loved one’s health, safety, and life should not be jeopardized by a nursing facility that puts profits over care and treatment.
However, simply receiving bad care may not rise to the level of bringing a civil lawsuit. Our Fort Lauderdale nursing home and assisted living negligence attorneys look for a serious injury that corresponds to the facility’s neglect.
Be on the lookout for the below injuries which can lead to a Tamarac nursing home abuse lawsuit for damages or wrongful death.

- Bed sores
