The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have given East Haven Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in the Bronx, NY its lowest rating (one out of five stars) due to below average findings in three categories: 1) health inspections, 2) nursing home staffing and 3) quality measures. Based on a June 15, 2009 survey, the Bronx facility was found to have failed to provide each resident with the highest quality of life possible, failed to provide professional services in accordance with each resident’s written care plan, and failed to meet a professional standard of quality.
More specifically, the Bronx facility failed to monitor resident’s bowel status to prevent fecal impaction, which resulted in actual harm to the resident.
