The facility is also placed in the superior 10% of nursing homes in terms of staff vaccination. The staff up-to-date vaccination rate is a commendable 75.1%, impressively higher than the state's average of 20.2%.

I wrked at this facility N I must say it's one of thee worst I've ever been to for the simple fact that they hide n try to cover up the truth about the things that take place in this building it should be shut down nothing is up to date u cnt even get a report sheet to report anything !!!!! This place is a fraud
Horrible place, My mother was here after a hospital stay. She got C-diff, was not treated for an open wound (she was diabetic)until I had them take care of it. They did not get tests done she needed to have done. You can tell staff does not care. The only reason I placed her here was that they had a good rating online. Staff does not care and it shows. She died here right before I could get her into another facility. Please do not put your loved ones in here. Since, my mom died, I have heard from others in the medical field that have dealt with this facility that it is horrible. I believe them!
I arrived via ambulance to Safety Harbor not knowing what to expect. Being mentally & physically exhausted from the death of my wife a few months earlier, I went into isolation and didn’t leave my Apt except a couple days a week to go to 7-11. I lost 45 lbs in 2 months. Couldn’t eat or sleep. Also, I fell onto the concrete and broke my right arm and shoulder. My options were a total shoulder replacement or Physical Therapy. A long shot they said. I chose P/TRehab and I’m so happy I did. My therapeutic team got me into a program which had me lifting my arm to my head! Mentally my brain wasn’t working. I was grieving and needed care. Rhiannon Combs our Social Worker’s door was always open. I felt a SPECIAL TRUST. Sharing with her. The Nurses, the Activities Director and CNA’s were consistently caring and knowledgeable. All with a smile.Michael K.
My MIL was admitted to The Consulate Of Saftey Harbor for rehab do to stroke durning the middle of a pandemic.I can not speak highly enough of this facility and their staff! Everyone from the Admissions, to the Receptionist, to the CNA's, Nursing Staff, Therapists, Social Services, and even Billing! Working together diligently, and with consistent compassion and care they made sure she was well looked after and striving for progress.Communication between the facility and our family was open and honest with expectations of her recovery always being realistic.While our visits weren't able to be face to face due to Covid-19, the staff did everything they could to accommodate! We are beyond pleased with our experience with the Consulate Of Safety Harbor and find comfort in knowing that if we ever needed their assistance again, they are well equipped to provide exceptional care!
Pros and Cons of this place:Pro- lots of in house specialtiesCon- they don't like you to get outside doctorsPro- foods included And the choices sound good but...Con- it's cold and gross- most of the time.. sometimes it is surprising and delicious.Pro- only two patients to a roomCon- rooms are cluttered- and dirty- the floors, the walls, the ac units, dressers inside and out, closets don't look like they have been cleaned ever- in fact the door is falling off in our room and a few others on the same hallway.Pro- lots of friendly staffCon- lots of un-friendly staff! In fact some rude nurse on the afternoon shift. Told a lady to "just sit down and wait" at the nurses station. Many of the aides walk around with ear buds in (I'd be fired from my job if I did that!) some of the nurses just seem like they don't care... which is sad cause they choose to work here.Pro- PT staff is very nice and some of the best therapy we have gotten in facilitiesCon- wish the aide would let us do more- like the therapy people doPro- the entrance/lobby is so pretty- Well decoratedCon- the resident rooms are not... In fact they are gross- see above. The hallways often Smell if urine or feces- yuck.Pro- there are lots of good activities for residents/us to get involved inCon- I can't really think of anything.Pro- smoking facilityCon- you can only smoke at certain times and it takes a lifetime for the "smoke aids" to show up. They are continually paging for the "smoke aid" to go to the patio. As a smoker- this is just awful to wait for.Pro- lots of people working during the dayCon- lots of people "working" aka standing around at the nurses station talking- and not paying attention, greeting us, making us feel ignored when we come to ask a question... night time is another story- ghost town.Overall- This place has lots it can improve on- but not the worst I've been in/to. Has a lot of potential if the staff seemed to care more!
The staff is very caring and responsive the place is extremely clean and is kept that way their timely and responding to your request the director is always available if you can't get satisfaction from the staff the nursing staff is absolutely wonderful and the food is not bad considering all things it's not a five-star restaurant and is probably not some place that you wanted to take a date but it's pretty good food all in all they could use better cable they do allow your family to come and visit and you can kind of dress up your room as you see fit and all in all it's a pretty good place to be.
I would like to thank all of the staff at Consulate of Safety Harbor for their continued dedication and great care they have provided to my mother over the past years! My mother was admitted last year and needed rehab after her hip surgery. She did so well with her rehab and was able to go home!! She was able to go home and was independent for several months. She developed other deficiencies due to her age and asked to return to her friends as Consulate of Safety Harbor! I really was grateful of the relationships developed during her stay and the homelike atmosphere she felt while she remains a long term care resident at the center.
When my sister first came to this facility, I was impressed with the caring staff. While the staff was pleasant and friendly, the care was not adequate. My sister.left to go to the hospital, in a worsened condition. The food was terrible. She developed a severe hematoma on one arm. From multiple sticks to draw blood.. . They placed a catheter in, and sent her to the hospital where they discovered it had been placed wrong causing a massive UTI.Z We immediately began to seek another facility. Never, ever would I recommend this wretched facility.
I cant say enough about this place you have some good nurses that try there best but the other half smh. My husband has to wait 2-4 hours before being checked upon for help, they always forget his tray, had some scar tissue now has opened back up to a wound sore, has had other residents attach him no one is really watching these people they wondering in others rooms, you complain nothing is done about it. They forget to refill patients meds which have caused harm and the list goes on. I want to switch but theres not many that accepts him because of his needs im just at a crossroads right now its hurts to see people in these facilities not being taken care of. Never thought it would be your loved one these people dont care its a paycheck please if your love one is in one check on them everday. Places like this are killing people. 😢
This facility had the lowest staff attention I have ever seen in a facility. I wanted to cry just how depressed I was feeling walking the hallways. But the worst was the dog food I had to watch these people eat like it was steak because they were either that hungry or didn't know the difference.
We've been to many nursing homes and this is by far the worst, at least 30 minute wait time when you press the call button when the call button is actually accessible for the patient, constantly getting bed sores always short-staffed. While there my family member fell and the hospital said she had been laying on the floor so long her internal body temperature dropped to hypothermic levels. They also assured us they would get the Medicaid taking care of quickly that was a lie, it took 3 months. The worst part is having to actually trained nurses to do their job to take care of our family member. If you bring a family member here be prepared to be there 24/7 and to do 90% of the care yourself. Also the hallway smell like pee so bad, due to poor care of patients.
