Federal Government Provides Nursing Homes Ratings

Federal Government Provides Nursing Homes Ratings

Nursing homes in NY opened July 15 for in person visits

The Federal government provides Nursing Homes ratings to assist in the selection process.

Five-stars is the highest rating and one star is the lowest rating.  One-star facilities are deemed to have sufficient staff to meet resident needs.  This includes sufficient staff to administer activities of daily living (ADLs), and provide meals, medications, and necessary treatments.

Five star rating

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provides this “quality rating system” is to provide consumers, their families and caregivers with a readily available comparison of Nursing Homes.

As stated by CMS, the purpose is to “compare nursing homes more easily and to help identify areas about which you may want to ask questions”.

The Nursing Home Reform Act requires that Nursing Homes “must provide . . . the highest practicable . . . well-being” of every resident.

Unfortunately, and all too often with resultant deadly consequences, over 100 New York Nursing Homes have the lowest rating.  We highlight one such facility today:

 

Onondaga Center for Rehabilitation & Nursing

In a recent survey by the New York State Department of Health it was determined that this nursing home did not “ensure sufficient nursing staff to provide nursing services to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental and psychosocial well-being for all 76 residents in the facility.”

This survey documented that Onondaga Center for Rehabilitation & Nursing did not have sufficient staff to meet the needs of residents, “including activities of daily living (ADLs), meals, medications, treatments and activities.”  No-harm was cited.

Nursing home neglect

FROM THE SURVEY

  • A certified nurse aide (CNA) stated that: “most day shift[s] they would work with only 3 CNA's for 35- 40 residents and typically only 1-2 CNA's for the evening shift. They were not able to get residents up in the morning and they would have to wait to get up late, showers did not get done as there was not enough time, there was no turning and positioning and they were not able to get residents toileted at times or not timely.”
  • A registered nurse (RN) stated that: “some treatments on residents were not being completed on multiple occasions as there was one nurse passing medication to 40 residents.” A licensed practical nurse (LPN) added that she “worked every weekend and frequently worked with just herself passing medications to 40 residents. Sometimes there was no time to get treatments done as she was busy getting all the medications passed.”
  • The facility failed to have an RN in the building for nearly two days in February.  (A facility must always have an RN in the building .)

It cannot be overly emphasized that perhaps the number one reason that Nursing Home residents suffer injury, neglect and abuse is due to inadequate staffing.  There is rarely, if ever, an excuse to have insufficient staff in a Nursing Home.
