East Lake Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is a large government-owned nursing home located in Elkhart, Indiana. This facility was given an overall grade of D, which is a subpar score. This isn't the worse place we found, but we would still be very reluctant to recommend it. Despite all this, one of the few highlights of this facility's profile is its strong inspection rating.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had a long list of deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's second best category turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it was given a C. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. The nursing score weighs a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we graded was long-term care, where this facility received a poor score here also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is definitely very concerning. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.36709 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
