Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second most favorable category was its short-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. In crafting these short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Citrus Nursing Center?
This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing score weighs many datapoints, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This statistic is far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this nursing home a D in that area. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
