Beware!!!! I am truly disappointed with the care that was given to my brother at Kindred of Hollywood. He is definitely a victim of iatrogenesis because of the pure negligence of this facility. His feeding was cut in half, which resulted in him losing a considerable amount of weight. He became even more weak and more infection prone. You would think that providing patient care to rehabilitate those who are truly in the need would take precedence, but not here. When it comes to the staff, they lack professionalism and were often negligent to my ailing brother. I often found myself requesting repeatedly to get someone just to clean him. The air conditioning system in his room was nonfunctioning for almost two weeks. The social worker that was assigned to my brother lacked empathy and concern. She didn't follow-up on his paper work, and I had to enlist other family members to cross check her work. I once waited for two hours at the nursing desk and received no assistance as I couldn't find one nurse on the floor.
Their sole interest is to use up all available Medicare and/or Medicaid funds, and once this happens they will go every which way to discharge you. In fact, my brother was supposed to be at Kindred temporarily, but they made every excuse to avoid getting him placed somewhere closer to home. However, once his funds were exhausted, now there was some urgency to get him out their door. He was basically discharged because his Medicare funds were depleted and for no other reason. At the time of discharge, he had multiple bed sores from their lack of moving him. He would not open his eyes or respond to others, but as soon as he left, everything went for the better. His condition improved almost immediately. Basically, him leaving was more of a blessing than a curse. It was obvious that my brother's care was in adequate. I would never advise anyone to admit themselves or their loved one in this disaster of a facility called Kindred of Hollywood.
Horrible experience. Wish I would have known more about this facility before they transferred him there, where he passed a week later. He was on the 3rd floor where you could never find anyone at the desk or walking around if you needed help. They were very rude and unfriendly and if you asked them for anything it was as if you were bothering them. There was a sign specifically saying not to perform BP checks on his arms yet the nurse attempted several times before we caught them. We would come first thing in the mornings and he would look so uncomfortable and would say nobody had been in the room to help move him.

I have worked in the healthcare field for many years - I have worked around Kindred Hospital for about as long - I also work for them in the 90 s,
There care efforts are outstanding and can provide great care due to smaller facilities.
Personally 1 of my friends was in a motorcycle accident and he was transferred to Kindred Hospital Hollywood for wound care. He had developed a very bad bed sore at a local hospital. They healed his would and was then able to leave their facility to continue his rehab.
