Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Arguably the most significant 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 in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had too many deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest category was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. In computing our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is considered to be a reliable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Sunnybrook Rehabilitation Center?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. There are many criteria within this area. Most of these criteria relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in that category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.59514 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
