Nursing Home Rating

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ("CMS") compile and provide data and ratings for Medicare-certified skilled nursing facilities in the United States, and the rating and data are an important data point when assessing long-term care facilities.

Broward Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has an overall rating from the CMS of four stars or "above average." The rating is based on the facility's performance in three categories: health inspections, staffing, and quality of resident care measures.

Health Inspections

The facility received a rating of three stars or "average" on its health inspection results. The rating is based on current inspections, the two prior inspections, three years of complaint inspections, and three years of infection control inspections.

The center has received six health citations compared to a national average of 8.3. The citations were in the following categories:

  • Quality of life and care deficiencies
  • Resident rights deficiencies
  • Nutrition and dietary deficiencies
  • Pharmacy service deficiencies

Each of the deficiencies received a rating of 2 or "minimal harm."

The facility has had zero complaint inspections or infection control inspections in the last three years.

Staffing

The facility received a staffing rating of four stars or "above average." It exceeds the state and national average in total number of licensed nurse staff hours per resident per day. The average in Florida is 1 hour and 41 minutes and Broward Nursing and Rehabilitation Center's results are 2 hours and 8 minutes. The higher average is because of more LPN/LVN care time, while RN hours per resident per day falls slightly below the state and national averages.

Broward Nursing and Rehabilitation Center also exceeds the state and national averages for nurse aid hours per resident per day but falls below the averages for physical therapist staff hours.

Quality of Resident Care

The center received a rating of three stars or "average," but the ratings were notably different depending on the type of care:

  • Short-stay quality of resident care received only two stars
  • Long-stay quality of resident care received four stars

Key metrics lowing the quality of resident care rating for short-stays were (1) higher percentage of short-stay patients with pressure ulcers/pressure injuries that are new or worsened; (2) lower percentage of short-stay residents who improved in their ability to move around on their own; and (3) significantly lower percentage of residents who needed and received flu and pneumonia vaccinations.

The rating for long-stay quality of resident care was positively impacted by (1) a lower number of resident outpatient ER visits; (2) lower percentage of residents experiencing falls; (3) lower percentage of residents with worsened ability to move independently; and (4) lower percentage of residents whose need for assistance with daily activities increased.

What People Say About Us

"Jason and his team are responsive and communicate very well. Jason helped me to get the benefits that I qualified for much faster than expected. I would recommend him highly. My case seemed complicated to me, but Jason explained everything in detail and made everything go quite smoothly. I interviewed several elderlaw attorneys prior to choosing Jason Neufeld."

"Quick turn around time for appointments, great response time, very thorough, never rushed through and soooo easy to do business with over the internet! Read the website info, very very helpful!"

“The attorney Jason and his team are amazing at planning and execution. Me and my family would not trust anyone else with our estate planning needs.”

“I've been very impressed! A friend referred me and I've experienced nothing but perfect service and professionalism. I am extremely grateful!”

“A strong recommendation for Jason Neufeld and his Elder Law firm - very professional, patient, reliable, and experienced. When my father fell terminally ill, I became responsible for his assets and finances overnight, including the daunting task to qualify him for Medicaid. I interviewed several elder law firms but was most impressed by Jason’s client approach and practices. Throughout the process, Jason and his team provided clear guidance and support to successfully complete all the new and complex tasks required as a POA, and more importantly he enabled us to quickly achieve our goals related to Medicaid and estate planning. His fees are more than reasonable for the level of due diligence and support we received.”
