Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
We could not find anything positive to say about this facility. It received a grade of just D for short-term care. Tragically, this ended up being its best grade. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more important for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this place was below average in two of the key staffing metrics we looked at. The nursing home supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
Unfortunately, this facility received really poor government inspection reports in recent years, causing us to give them an F in our inspection category. An F in this category is generally a signal that we found some major red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. When a place has this bad of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Does this page answer your questions about Coronado Nursing Center?
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Nursing grades are mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home was given an abysmal score here also. It received a lowly F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 97.05094 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
