Claridge House Nursing & Rehabilitation Center Inspections and Survey Results
The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) will periodically inspect long term care facilities like the Claridge House Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. Recent inspection results for Claridge House Nursing & Rehabilitation Center show that deficiencies have been found at the facility:
Standard Statement of Deficiencies Dated 7/27/2018
In a 102-page report, the AHCA found several violations. In an unannounced visit, the AHCA found that the facility failed to provide clothing for a resident who had been admitted in a hospital gown. Although a friend was supposed to bring the resident clothes, the friend never did. The facility did not make any attempt to find the resident alternative clothing.
A resident also claimed that an aide would consistently take food away from her while she was eating. Although the resident reported this to several staff members, including a nurse. The AHCA found that this complaint had not been documented.
Other violations included failure to provide adequate care for residents based on an observation that one patient had not been cleaned and changed, and the privacy curtains around her bed were stained with feces. Another observation noted that several male patients were at risk for accidents and injuries related to shaving devices.
Fire/Life/Safety Statement of Deficiencies Dated 7/26/2018
The AHCA found that the facility did not conduct fire sprinkler testing and maintenance as required. Smoke/fire doors were also not maintained as they contained gaps, which would put all of the residents and staff at risk in the event of a fire.
Standard Statement of Deficiencies Dated 7/27/2017
Multiple violations, including: posting signs that stated instructions not to shave a patient and that he was legally blind, allegations that a nurse was rude to a resident and threatened to kick her out of her room, and dietary preferences not being taken into account resulting in significant weight loss.
Fire/Life/Safety Statement of Deficiencies Dated 7/26/2017
The emergency power supply systems had not been tested and maintained as required. Power strips and outlets were used for purposes other than for patient-care-related devices, therefore posing a danger to patients.
Complaint regarding Deficiencies Dated 6/1/2017
The AHCA found that a patient who was severely underweight when admitted, and whose family had agreed to insert a PICC line had not received the PICC line in a timely manner. His doctor had also ordered IV fluids which he did not receive.
Standard Statement of Deficiencies Dated 9/22/2016
Multiple violations were found, including failure to provide a surety bond in an amount equal to that of the total amount of residents’ funds. In addition, residents that required assistance eating were referred to as “feeders,” which the AHCA found was in violation of a resident’s right to be treated with dignity. Several rooms were also found to be in disrepair, with one patient’s bed’s side rails situated underneath his bed after they had fallen off twice. For other patients, the bed rails had been removed without the patient’s consent. The surveyor also noted that the facility did not provide signs as required outside rooms for patients at risk for further infection due to infected wounds.

Fire/Life/Safety Statement of Deficiencies Dated 6/16/2015
A surveyor noted that doors did not latch properly as required and there were no door locking plans for special-needs patients who would need specialized care in emergency situations.\
