Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for short-term care. In forming our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to learn that this facility received a reasonably solid long-term care score in our assessment. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. In the category of long-term care, we assess the amount of services provided by a nursing home, as opposed to more medically-intensive services. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Citrus Health and Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. One of the most significant factors in evaluating inspection reports is deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
Switching gears to our final category, this facility really did not perform well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. In determining our nursing ratings, we weigh both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. To pair with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home also did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This nursing home had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. These metrics pulled down this nursing home's nursing rating significantly.
