Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the place's overall grade. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest category is short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are vital for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about El Dorado Care & Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. When determining a facility's nursing score, we look at the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below average. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the last category we assessed. In this area, we gave this nursing home a D. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.9899 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
