Registered Staff Hours
We really weren't high on this facility's overall scores or its category scores. We gave it a just D in nursing and that turned out to be its highest grade. We looked at the levels of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the area of short-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in that category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Based on its poor rating in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home.
Does this page answer your questions about Continental Care and Rehabilitation?
We wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection score where it received an F. This typically means we found some red flags on the government inspections. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the next area, this facility really did not fare very well in this category either. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 77.14286 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be several points lower than average. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
