My brother is in this facility as I write this. I can not give this facility a favorable rating as there are too many negative experiences to list them all here. (I had to give at least one star to be able to post this review.) From ignoring the patient's cries for help to jerking the nurse's call button from the hand of the patient and throwing it on the floor because the nurse is "too busy to come running every time you want something". The calls are not returned from the social worker, who is "the only person I can get information from", in a timely manner. The patient is asked important questions regarding his care and expected to perform physical therapy while under strong pain medications. But when the patient complains about anything, he is ignored as being not able to accurately identify his needs. The family/care partner is not consulted regarding care or discharge. The nurse in charge only follows orders regardless of the condition of the patient. IE: my brother had a badly inflamed upper arm above the IV port the hospital had installed. He had complained of pain to the nurse who said she couldn't do anything about it because the hospital had ordered it. I showed it to the nurse who said she would have to wait until morning to call the doctor! She ultimately removed it that night, at my insistence, but if I hadn't seen it, my brother would have suffered further injury to his health. I am extremely disappointed in this facility. It is not the first Rehab Center he has been in, and while there are similar, unavoidable occurrences like these at all of them, this one has had an unacceptable amount of negative ones. If you are in the position that we were in, having no other choice but Heartland of Tamarac available to place your loved one into, I recommend that you stay with your family member as much as possible during their stay.

My mom was sent there last week for few days.i am being honest I would not send my dog to that rehab The call button doesn't work, they don't give you your meds unless you ask for them.if your elderly how are they going to remember, to ask about meds,when my moms sugar was 350 nurse wasn't in rush to get her in diabetes meds all I know is this if you want good care for your loved one don't put them there. They have no coffee, tea ,water after 6 pm god forbid your loved one was hungry answer was go to 711 seriously not even tea. hot water..lady in bed next to my mom stayed in bed no one came to check her she didn't move.horrible horrible place.if you want your love one to be sicker then they were before went in. Don't send them there I am being truthful

I do not recommend this facility. My father was here on 3 different occasions in the past few years. Most recently the staff was slow to respond and incompetent. The food is terrible as well. Personal items were stolen from my Dad as well. My father is well aware of his health conditions, is alert and doesn't have memory issues. Thank goodness, because he had to help the staff to be sure the care he was getting would not cause adverse effects.

My wife was in Heartland for rehab. It was a very nice facility with nice people working there. She's been there before and she's comfortable there. They have activities like bingo, cards and physical therapy. They could improve on the quality of the food and a quicker response to the needs of the patients.
