Short-term Care Quality
Even though we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we awarded it a grade of B- for short-term care. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. One of this place's strengths is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its patients. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that it performed respectably with 48 percent of its patients returning home.
We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the facility's nurse staffing. This facility averages just 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is not an impressive total. Finally, we also baked some quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. This place was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are typically good indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.
Does this page answer your questions about Sunny Ridge Rehabilitation Center?
Among this place's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection rating. More often than not, this indicates we found some red flags on the nursing home's inspections. For nursing homes with poor inspection scores, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility was assessed 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines amounting to more than $100,000. This generally indicates that a nursing home's poor track record spanned multiple years.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final area, this facility really did not perform well here either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. We were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 83.22148 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.7 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
