Empowering families to advocate for quality nursing home care


NEWS ALERT: Nursing Homes Added to Federal Watch List for ‘Grotesque’ Abuse


Families for Better Care today announced that two Florida nursing homes were recently added to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Special Focus Facility list—a federal watch list for nursing homes with a “history of serious quality issues.”

The nursing homes are Palm Garden of Winter Haven and University City East in Deland.

“Past inspection reports for each facility reveal grotesque and chronic abuse and neglect of residents,” said Brian Lee, Executive Director of Families for Better Care.  “Families should be aware of the multiple infractions and associated penalties at these watch list nursing homes so they can take appropriate precautions to keep their loved ones safe from harm.”
