Miami has four 1-star facilities which rank as Miami’s worst nursing homes. These facilities, Gardens Care Center, Regents Park at Aventura, Harbor Beach Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and Coral Reef Subacute Care Center, all have received 1 star ratings from Medicare’s Care Compare tool, as of the date of this post. This one star designation indicates a “much below average” nursing home rating. As of this post, there are only four facilities that rank this low in Miami. However, it is important to note that ratings change frequently, and ratings are only current as of this post.
Our Miami nursing home abuse attorneys explain the poor rating of Miami’s worst nursing facilities.
How Medicare Rates Miami Nursing Homes
The Federal Government understands that consumers have a hard time choosing nursing homes. In order to objectively rate facilities, Medicare utilizes a 5 star rating system, with 5 stars being the best, and 1 star representing the worst rated nursing homes. Medicare formulates its 5 star rating system based on the individual nursing home’s past health inspections and cited deficiencies, the nursing home’s staffing numbers, and the quality measures at the facility, which track resident care data and adverse incidents.
Below are the 1 star facilities which currently rank as Miami’s worst nursing homes.
Coral Reef Subacute Care Center LLC
Located at 9869 SW 152nd Street Miami, FL 33157, Coral Reef Subacute Care Center has a ‘much below average’ rating from Medicare. Further, the Richmond Heights facility has a red hand next to it on Medicare’s site. This means that Coral Reef Subacute has specifically been cited by a state agency for nursing home abuse.
In addition to the low rating from CMS, Coral Reef Subacute has been sued in civil lawsuits alleging resident falls, skin breakdown, and wrongful death.
Regents Park at Aventura
Regents Park is a nursing home located at 18905 NE 25th Ave in Aventura in northern Miami-Dade County. The facility also has a 1 star rating from Medicare.
In a recent inspection, Regents Park at Aventura was cited for resident care violations. Some of these citations include failing to supervise wander-prone residents, resulting in elopement. Elopement is when a resident who is cognitively, physically, mentally, emotionally and/or chemically impaired wanders away, runs away, or escapes.
Investigators also interviewed a resident who was alert enough to communicate. The resident explained that Regents Park staff do not respond timely when resident’s push their call bells. “Resident #146 stated, They have a problem with staff, they don’t have enough.” As a result, the resident sat in an adult diaper full of feces.
Gardens Care Center
Gardens Care Center is a large skilled nursing facility located at 190 NE 191st Street Miami, FL 33161. The facility has also been called Cross Gardens Care Center. This 1 star Miami nursing home also has a red hand next to it on Medicare’s site, indicating that Gardens Care Center has been cited for nursing home abuse.
Similar to the above facilities, in addition to agency citation, there have been injury and wrongful death lawsuits filed against Gardens Care Center, alleging poor resident care.
Harbor Beach Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
Harbor Beach Nursing and Rehab is located at 1615 Miami Rd in Fort Lauderdale, just north of Miami. Harbor Beach is the last of the 1 star facilities in the Miami metro area. Harbor Beach nursing home has been sued for bed sores and wrongful death, and operates under the legal licensee 1615 Miami Road Operations LLC. A recent health inspection at Harbor Beach resulted in a 22 page list of citations, including those for medication errors, elopement violations, and failure to provide appropriate nutrition monitoring, resulting in weight loss.
