Wonderful the staff were all helpful and knowledgeable in all areas. The staff were continuously checking on me while I waited for my ride. The lady at the front made me feel safe and secure. The people that took care of me were professional and seemed to know more than the girl they called a Nurse. I will always go back to them when I am in Florida even though it is further than the others in my area.

My husband is very satisfied with the care he gets here. He says the nurses go out of their way to make his stay comfortable. He says some patients are not nice to the nurses. He feels like this is uncalled for when the nurses are doing everything they can to help them.

The unit let in children & others to visit patients. Blood droppings were left on the floor and cleaned with paper towels. Never saw bleach for cleaning. My cather was full and spent 6 days in hospital. No one ever checked it. It was infecting my lungs. Truly a unit to stay away from. Thank you, Mike Malley
