Coral Reef Subacute Care Center Staff Members
Coral Reef Subacute Care Center is run by a team of dedicated and compassionate caregivers. Assigned concierges anticipate patient needs and work diligently to exceed expectations. The caregivers observe high levels of professionalism, creating a kind and loving environment that fosters the patients' well-being.
According to the Medicare.gov rating—a care quality rating conducted on nursing homes participating in Medicare—the center has a 1-star rating overall. The government compiles data from three sources—staffing, health inspections, and resident care quality—to determine the quality of a nursing home's services.
A star rating between 1 and 5 stars is calculated individually for staffing, health inspections, and quality of resident care, as well as for an overall score. Generally, these ratings help patients and their loved ones who are in the process of selecting a nursing home to narrow down their options and settle for those with better scores.
It is important to note that the current star ratings reflect data collected prior to when CareRite Centers assumed ownership of this nursing facility.
Every year, state inspectors carry out health and safety inspections in nursing homes to assess their compliance with Medicaid and Medicare regulations. The assessments may also result from a resident’s or another person's complaint or after the facility reports an incident.
The center has a health inspections rating of 1 star, which is based on:
- Most recent and two prior inspections
- Three years of inspections on infection control
- Three years of inspections on complaints
The most recent health and infection control inspections listed on the website were conducted prior to the change of ownership. There were no complaints reported in 2021.
The staffing rating depends on the staff-to-residents ratio. The more the staff, the higher the ratio. The calculation is based on two measures: the registered nurse hours per resident per day and the overall nurse staffing hours (including that of nurse aides, licensed practical nurses, and registered nurses) per resident per day.
Coral Reef Subacute Care Center has a registered nurse staffing rating of 4 stars and an overall staffing rating of 3 stars. The website does not indicate whether the most recent data is from before or after the change of ownership.
Quality of Resident Care
The resident care quality rating is based on a select set of clinical data measures. The overall rating considers the short-stay care quality (for those who spend 100 days or less in the care facility) and the long-stay care quality (for those who stay 101 days or longer).
The center has a long-stay quality rating of 2 stars, while the short-stay rating is 1 star. Overall, the institution rates 1 star for the overall quality of resident care.
With the new owner and management in place, keep an eye on this property for updated scores. The majority of the data with regard to resident care was gathered in the months prior to the acquisition.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who regulates nursing homes?
The government regulates nursing homes through Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). However, state survey agencies conduct inspections on behalf of CMS for compliance. Some of their areas of interest include quality of resident care, staffing, and hygiene, among others.
How can I find an ideal nursing home?
Nursing homes are a vital part of America as the population ages. They provide great relief to ailing elders or family members who would like to have their frail and aging loved ones receive specialized medical care and assistance with the activities of daily living in a home-like environment. Hence, finding an ideal nursing home that meets these needs is essential for their well-being. Before beginning your search, you need to identify the specific services you need and how often you need them. Once you know exactly what you need, you can search online for nursing homes that meet your requirements.
Alternatively, you can request referrals from family and friends and then search for the recommended centers to find more information. However, before settling on a home, it's crucial to make a physical visit to see the facility and its staff to determine if it is the right fit.
What features should I search for in a nursing home?
There are several things to consider when evaluating different nursing homes. Examples include:
• Admission requirements
• Availability of beds and services
• Fees and financing options
• Patient needs assessment procedures
• Staff qualifications and experience
• Facility appearance and conditions
• Amenities available
• Medication and healthcare services offered
• Visiting hours and access to phones
• Compliance with licensing requirements
• Social and recreational activities
• Policy for medical emergencies
• Medicare.gov rating
• Medicare and/or Medicaid accepted, if applicable
In addition to the above issues, you should also examine the general atmosphere in the institution. For example, if the staff look upbeat and residents happy, that could indicate the home provides quality care.
