Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
While we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it an A for our short-term care rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade, which could have been even worse without this grade. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
We awarded this facility a C for our inspections rating. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent danger to patient health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Does this page answer your questions about Canterbury Center?
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing score consists of many components, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this statistic. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a resident even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
