Dear Ms. L,
"Re: Unsolicited Letter of Commendation and Sincere Appreciation for Selective Personnel at Hampton Court's Nursing and Rehabilitation Center from a former Patient...
As you are aware, I spent a few days rehabilitating there at Hampton Court last month (March 2014) after my cardiac surgery at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center. My experience at Hampton Court produced very positive results health-wise for me because of the special care and services that I received from several very caring, talented professional care givers. Like many other patients, I sincerely appreciated the services and care that I received and this unsolicited letter of appreciation is my way of communicating and acknowledging the same.
The following professional personnel positively impacted my life and experience at Hampton Court. They increased my desire and efforts to speed up my recovery and rehabilitation with encouragement, support and in the delivery of their professional duties, responsibilities and assignments at Hampton Court. Those professionals are: Numerous nurses, therapists, activities dept, dietician and admissions department director.
These identified persons are not only deserving of special commendations, they also deserve special consideration for salary increments for all that they do in patient care, medical service provisions and in improving and saving lives. Please accept this recommendation for the consideration needed to implement this suggestion from a former satisfied patient and thank you again for working with and providing services to me."

To all the caring, giving people at Hampton Court who through all these years made Sandy comfortable and cared.
Thank You and God Bless.
Daughter of resident January 20, 2014
Dear Hampton Court Staff,
On behalf of my mother I would like to thank you for the excellent care you took care of her upon her release from the hospital last Monday, September 9, 2013. During the nine nights that she was at the Hampton Court, I has the opportunity to visit 2 to 3 times daily, and each time was greeted by a kind and concerned member of the Hampton Court staff. When I had questions, the nursing staff including the wonderful nurse Director, the physical therapy staff, the Dietary/Nutrition staff and even the Director of House Keeping talked with me.
The interdisciplinary care team ordered a new mattress and walker for my mother and gave me lessons on how to best assist her. Because of your team, my mother can now stand by herself and with assistance use her walker to walk. I plan to continue working with her home.
Again, thank you for your professionalism and care.
Daughter of patient September 18, 2013
Dear Ms. Z,
My grandmother was a patient in your rehab center this past October after a fall she sustained at home. It is with deep regret that I must tell you she passed away on November 12, 2012. This note is long overdue to you. I wanted to tell you that your staff was awesome to us! Everybody was excellent and so caring to her and me. I was there to visit her every day and met so many great loving people. I wish I could remember everybody by name but I was so preoccupied and upset by her condition that I neglected to make not of everyone's name. A few people stood out to us. Physical Therapy rep C. made a special connection with E. She spoke German/Yiddish with her and always helped her in and out of bed. She was so patient and loving. C. is the best of the best! I must also pay special tribute to her PCA. M. was the only person who could change her diapers. She was outstanding and so kind and gentle. I would not have changed her for a million dollars! She took such excellent care of my grandmother and always with a smile and TLC! I would be remiss if I didn't mention her RN. M. was always on top of everything and always knew what was going on and could always answer all my questions and was never too busy to listen to me or help me. All the nurses were great and you're lucky to have such a vast number of superior performers. Everybody at your facility was friendly and helpful. In the hallways the staff would acknowledge me and say "hello" and not just walk by. It's these little things that mean alot and show that people care, take pride in their work and enjoy where they work. After my grandmother was taken back to the hospital she had to go back to a different rehab and I chose a place in Ft. Lauderdale and the difference was like night and day. Hampton Court was an A+ and the other place could learn alot from you. The only fault I had with Hampton Court was her doctor. I felt he looked at her age and the fact she had a fall and wanted to write her off. The director of nursing was a bit like that too. Luckily my time with them was minimal. When E. was being discharged from the hospital I wanted her to go back to HC but was told that "Per the doctor" she could only come back if I agreed to sign a DNR and she went straight to hospice! As much as I wanted her to go back because of the wonderful day to day care, I was not ready to give up on her. The hospital doctor agreed she was not ready for hospice and had more living to do. She needed rehab and therapy. I also didn't think it wasn't right that a doctor (your doctor) could require a DNR for admission. That is a personal choice and a patient/family decision. I thought this was way out of line. I want to keep this note positive so I will not dwell on that. I would also like to compliment your Social Worker. The Social Worker was very helpful and knowledgeable. The Social Worker was always there to help. I must also mention the Dietary Department rep. F was so patient and caring too! He would always get her chocolate ice cream to eat. She would flirt with him and he was so kind to play along! Ms. Z I apologize for the delay in getting this note off to you-There has been so much to do with my grandmother's passing and emotionally I've not been up to putting my pen to paper and write to you.
Please forward my thanks and gratitude to your wonderful staff. Out family is forever grateful for the exceptional Care we received at HC. Your staff shines brightly and they make HC a 5 Star Facility. I wish you and your staff a Happy New Year and continued success.

Dear Ms. G,
It is with sorrow that I am contacting you regarding the passing of my father. He was a resident of the final 5 months of his life at Hampton Court.
We were very pleased with the professional skilled nursing care that was provided to him in a very respectful and caring way. I would definitely recommend Hampton Court to others and their skilled nursing needs.
Thank you in advance of your efforts.
Son of a patient October 18, 2012
My stepmother, my sisters and I are very comfortable of having our father staying at your facility, at the beginning we all tried to get adjusted to our new lives; having Dad in a nursing home wasn't an easy choice, it was hard for him and for us too.
I am glad that all issues were resolved, we have gotten to know your staff, and they're very caring and loving employees. The new CNA Spanish speaking employee is a blessing for my Dad and the other Spanish speaking residents; we are very pleased with his treatment and care to our father; now my father feels more comfortable of having someone who speaks his language, even though most of your staff speaks a little Spanish.
thanks God and your facility excellent care, my Dad has adjusted very well and we are very satisfied with the quality of care his having there. In regards to the previous letters; disregards them as they were only words from desperate daughters that grew up in a different culture, where parents and grandparents were living at home until they passed away.
When you come from another country, to initiate a new life and getting use to a new culture is not an easy task; even though we have lived here for over 40 years, when it comes to a situation like this we all got frustrated, because we never imagined that our Dad was going to live his last days in a nursing home.
I have a strong faith in God; things happen for a reason; having Dad in a nursing home is "ok" as long as it is "Hampton Courts Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Facility". Thank you again for been there we need it.
Daughter of a patient September 23, 2012
Dear Staff At Hampton Court,
Thanks to you all for taking good care of my mother last month. Both of her daughters live in other states and we were so grateful to all of you for your responsiveness of care. Thanks especially to Admissions and Social Work. the entire family is grateful.
Family of a patient August 12, 2012
This brief letter of accommodation comes to your office two-fold. First to mention how pleased I was with the general services of Hampton' Staff during my rehabilitation stay there a short time ago. I can to your facility very shortly after having had a serious tri-fold surgery. Suffice-to-say, I needed physical assistance both in and out of my bed. Secondly and more specifically your morning shift supervisor recognized my serious condition immediately. In-keeping with her other supervisory responsibilities, whenever time permitted, she gave me my medications and the needed set of instructions timely and promply. When I began to improve, her professional and business-like counseling prepared me for my Physical Therapy. While sending this letter of appreciation to Hampton Court, I feel imperative to let your office know that you do have a very professional, dedicated, and Highly Skilled individual in the person on your staff.

I am grateful to you and your Staff for providing not only excellent patient care, but an environment where my Dad as sick as he was felt loved and content. During such a trying time, I appreciate that you went above and beyond to get us through well. Your kindness and support made a positive difference in our experience at Hampton Court.
~Daughter of patient 2011
To the Staff at Hampton Court,
I just wanted to send this note of gratitude for taking care of my mom during her stay. She has come a long way since her return home but still has a long way to go before she can go shopping. She still talks about how good you all treated her. I also want to thank you for helping my dad.
~Daughter & family of patient
I know my dad was only a resident there for a few days, but he was really beginning to get into the swing of things. He couldn't get enough therapy and tried his hardest to get those little chicken legs back to work. We just never know what the future holds and it as just his turn to go. I just wanted to thank everyone for their kindness and compassion toward not just my dad but for every resident of your facility. I walked the halls and grounds and saw sincere caring from every member of your Staff, from groundskeepers, housekeeping, kitchen help, up to nurses, Staff and owner. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I will miss my dad terribly, but will always have found memories of his short time at Hampton Court.
~Daughter of patient 7-31-11
Dear Ms. S
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your wonderful staff for my stay at Hampton Court between May 6th and May 14th, 2011. I must admit that initially I had some strong reservations about transitioning from Aventura Hospital to a rehabilitation facility, based mostly on my own preconceived notions that proved to be totally incorrect. I had also convinced myself that I wouldn't have to be there for more than two or three days at most. instead, after the first couple of days. I totally understood why I needed to be there-the focused level of care and rehabilitation I required during my stay would have been impossible to replicate had I gone straight home.
As part of my preconceived notions, I was seriously worried as to who I was going to have to share a room with. I don't know if it was by design of coincidence, but you were able to pair me with a fellow knee-replacement patient who not only had his right knee done as well (albeit by a different surgeon) but also, (and this is by very strange coincidence), shares many same interests and activities as well as many of our same friends. His son and I actually work out together at the same gym...talk about a small world. So, in addition I have to thank Hampton Court for establishing a great new friendship.
Most importantly however and my reason for writing is to commend you and your staff for the exceptional level of professionalism and care during my stay. I wish I could remember everyone by name, as I certainly don't want to leave anyone out, but "L" and "R" were great as were the whole staff in Rehab, including "C" and "S", without whom I couldn't have made the progress I did during my stay. I also have to say how impressed I was with your level of planning and advanced arrangements for home care after my release from Hampton Court, including delivery of a CPM machine the very same day of my release as well as delivery of a walker and medications.
While I certainly hope not to have another surgery any time soon, I know that if and when I do, Hampton Court will definitely be my choice for post-operative recovery. Also, to the extent you ever need patient references, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you again for everything you did for me.
To: All the Staff of the Rehabilitation Dept.
I want to thank each and every one for the excellent professional treatment in both the Physical & Occupational Therapy. You were caring and I commend you All!!
Hello Ms. S, Mr. T, and Ms. N:
Forgive me for the delay in sending this note; I wanted to send you my thanks for looking out for my Dad. he has had a roller-coaster ride of events since his surgery in January. In the last few weeks he had a couple of troubling events but as a team you resolved these issues and I know he is on the road to recovery. Please accept my thanks and gratitude for the difficult taks you have in your jobs. I want to commend T, my Dad's nurse he has had many times; I believe T's expertise has kept my Dad stable and in the mode of recovery. Mr. T I must commend you for your calmness and dedication you have to my Dad, the other clients (and clients' family), and your staff. You were very kind to listen to my concerns on Thursday (2/24) morning. I believe you made a difference in my Dad's care, our confidence, and provided the reassurance we needed as a family. Thank you all again, I hope to see you again in the next few weeks.
~Patient's daughter 4-6-11

Thank you! For everything each of you has done to make the past eleven months of my sister's and my lives more enjoyable, bearable and even at times, fun! She and I have been given the wonderful opportunity to spend the last months of her life together, cherishing childhood memories and having family around us. We truly are thankful for all of the many kindnesses shown us by the Staff and Administration of Hampton Court. We were unable to care for ourselves, but everyone attended to our needs with such care and concern that we can only say "Thank You", "Thank You", Thank You".

~Family of a patient 12-20-10
On behalf of the entire family we wish to express our deepest gratitude for the exceptional care that you extended to our father and grandfather. Even though his last year was difficult, we firmly believe that the dedicated, skilled and compassionate care of the CNA's, Nursing and all Department Staff at Hampton Court extended his life so that he could be with us as long as he possibly could. He was a strong individual and GOD and Family were always his priority and that is evident in your philosophy as well. Even though we don't wish to see them suffer, the final separation is heart-wrenching and I'm sure your staff feels that to some extent as well. you all were a big part of our lives this past year and we just wanted you to know how much we appreciate not only what you did for him but all the hard work you do on a daily basis. God bless you & your staff.
