My mom was there for rehab after having pneumonia and "graduating" from a long term acute care facility where she was for several months. She was at Boynton to get strength back to begin to walk again. At admission, she could not get out of bed, had just gotten off a ventilator, had many medications that needed to be administered, was a heavy woman, and was anxious. She needed caring folks around her and skilled, competent nursing. Unfortunately, that is not what received. Overall, nursing staff is not concerned with patients at all, though there are a coveted few that do, and you feel elated when they are there. They particularly despise heavy people, as it requires 2 people to get one out of bed into a wheel chair, and the rehab is really not "set up" to do this....they must borrow people to help, and the second person is almost always annoyed. To ensure her safety, it required us as the family to have someone there until bed time, and then we ultimately hired a private nurse to watch over mom during the night.. Even so, danger was always present. We had to watch for medication mix ups or negligence at all times, and still encountered that while we were present. In addition, though in the end, physical/occupational/speech therapists did wonders for mom....she amazingly walked out of there with a walker...the first PT/OT team was just bad, threatening my dad every day to "release" her as she was not working hard enough. Turns out she was on the wrong meds, which caused her to be woozy and exhausted. We told PT/OT that this was happening, but, like the nursing staff, they did not seem to care. but Once we got mom on the right meds, which was a feat due to the doctor they contract with actually "firing" us because we asked him too many questions during my mom's medication debacle (not kidding....though we then got a physicians assistant from the other contracted doctor who saw her and was easier to deal with....never saw doctor though) and we replaced the derisive PT/OT team, she began an amazing recovery! Her new PT/OT team had faith in her and she rallied. She as like herself again! Our family got used to having to be there every day...my sister moved from the northeast to be there, and being there allowed her to bing several issues to the administrations attention, including a blood clot in moms arm which went undetected by the staff. In the end, Mom made a wonderful recovery, and is home and walking stairs now, after a full 6 months of being in hospital and rehab. Do I think Boynton is a good rehab? I gave it a 3. If you are protecting your loved one 24/7 and not trusting the nursing staff (and be prepared to constantly manage them/argue with them, as they don't respect families either) If you create a personal relationship with the director and the head nurse (I suggest a meeting and then constant follow up), If you make sure to get the "right" physical therapy team that is caring and non-judgmental (which means creating a relationship with the head of the department...she is very nice) If you get the contracted doctor with the Physicians Assistant who will be accessible to you and not the other who will "fire you" for trying to contact him, If you triple check on everything, from transportation to outside doctors appointments to medication to appropriate food....well then, yes...your loved one can recover at Boyton. But boy, it's an overwhelming burden on the family, as you become the Advocate/Manager/Diagnostician/Protector of your loved one. Is this unique? Probably not. I have been told that Boyton is considered one of the better rehabs in the area by outside nurses, which suggests a sad state of affairs in South Florida. But, if you do all I recommend, your loved may recover., like mine did.Without constant vigilence, however, they may not make it out.
