The Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration conducted an unannounced complaint survey at Consulate Health Care of North Fort Myers, which is located at 991 Pondella Road, North Fort Myers, Florida 33903, on June 8th and June 9th, 2016. Consulate Health Care of North Fort Myers is a 120 bed for-profit nursing home. Since 2011, this nursing home has been fined $25,000.00 by the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration for violations of state and federal law.
This most recent complaint investigation resulted in the citation of deficiencies related to resident assessments (F Tag 272), failing to provide services that meet professional standards (F Tag 281), failing to provide necessary care for resident well-being (F Tag 309), failing to ensure that the environment remains free of accident hazards (F Tag 323) and failing to ensure that residents receive adequate and appropriate health care and protective and support services (N 201).
Violations of the type referenced above may lead to nursing home residents suffering serious harm through neglect and abuse. Bed sores, falls with fractures, choking incidents, aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition, dehydration, infections and wrongful death.
