Lowest Rated Palm Beach County Nursing Homes
Unfortunately, not all Palm Beach County nursing homes are created, or operated, equally. While some Palm Beach facilities have earned the coveted 5 star rating from Medicare, sadly, some skilled nursing facilities are poorly rated due to documented resident neglect and poor survey inspections.
From Boca Raton to Jupiter, all the way west to Belle Glade, Palm Beach’s worst nursing homes are spread evenly throughout the county.
Why do nursing home rankings matter? Poorly rated nursing homes consistently cause resident injuries, like bedsores, patient falls and unexplained broken bones. These inexcusable injuries occur more frequently at lower rated facilities.
Medicana Nursing & Rehab Center
Located at 1710 Lake Worth Road in Lake Worth, the Medicana nursing home has a lowly 2 star overall rating with a 1 star Health Inspection rating. This ranks Medicana as one of the county’s worst rated nursing home.
Darcy Hall of Life Care
Darcy Hall is located right off the I-95 exit for Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard. Unfortunately, Darcy Hall has a ‘Below Average’ 2 star Overall Rating with a ‘Much Below Average’ 1 star Health Inspection rating from the federal government website. Specifically for Darcy Hall, the Medicare page has a red hand which warns the visitor that Darcy Hall has been cited for nursing home abuse.
Boulevard Rehabilitation Center
The Boulevard Rehab in Boynton Beach is one of Palm Beach County’s lowest rated nursing homes.
Boulevard Rehab has a 2 star overall rating with a 1 star Health Inspection rating.
ManorCare Health Services Boynton Beach
Coming in as another one of Boynton’s worst rated nursing homes, Manor Care of Boynton Beach has a Below Average and Much Below Average rating from CMS.
Manor Care of Boynton Beach has a 2 star overall rating with a 1 star Health Inspection rating, just like its neighbor to the east, Boulevard Rehab.
Palm Garden of West Palm Beach
Located at 300 Executive Center Drive in West Palm Beach, Palm Garden of West Palm Beach has a 2 star overall rating and a 1 star health inspection rating, making it one of the lowest rated nursing homes in the county.
Conclusion on Palm Beach’s Worst Rated Nursing Homes
Ratings help residents and their families make educated decisions on where to place their aging parent. However, an arbitrary star rating does not mean a facility is perfect, or absolutely terrible. You should always visit long term care facilities and see if you get a good vibe from the caretakers and management. Also, it is important to remember that Palm Beach facility star ratings often change with survey results.
