This 65-bed facility is owned by Sunbridge Care Enterprises, LLC. and Genesis Healthcare, Inc. Glenville Center is known also by the legal business name of Sunbridge Glenville Health Care, LLC.

At the time of this post, the facility is rated one out of five stars by Medicare. This low rating is considered “much below average,” and is due to Glenville Center’s results on past health inspections and staffing reports. According to reports submitted by the facility to Medicare, the total number of nurse staff hours per day per resident (meaning how much time a resident is cared for by nurses, CNAs, etc., per day) is two hours and 53 minutes at Glenville Center. This total is almost an hour less than the average time spent with residents by nurse staff across the state of West Virginia: three hours and 47 minutes.

Furthermore, residents only receive care by Registered Nurses (RNs) for approximately 11 minutes a day during the weekends. Glenville Center has an RN turnover rate of 71.4% (the average RN turnover rate in WV being 44.6%. This means that Glenville Center loses and has to re-hire 71.4% of their RN staff every year. Low staff turnover rates at nursing homes are preferred as staff typically have more time to learn residents’ needs and behaviors. Low staff turnover rates also may lead to residents becoming familiar with the staff and feeling comfortable in the facility.

Numerous studies have shown that understaffed nursing homes cause more injuries than adequately staffed facilities.

Deficiencies at Glenville Center for Resident Care Violations

June 23rd, 2021, Inspection at Glenville Center

During an inspection at Glenville Center, inspectors noticed that one of the residents had an injury to his toes on one foot. Inspectors interviewed staff members and reviewed the resident’s records to determine what had caused the injury. Staff were unsure as to how the resident got injured and there were no notes in the records about the injury. Inspectors were unable to inquire about the injury to the resident, as he was non-verbal. The resident was wheelchair bound due to spina bifida, a previous traumatic brain injury (TBI), and paralysis. Inspectors determined that the resident would not have been able to cause the injury to himself due to his inability to move. Consequently, it was found that Glenville Center both failed to prevent a resident from suffering from abuse and/or neglect and failed to timely report the abuse and/or neglect to the proper authorities.
