Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We gave this facility an A in short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are important for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also received favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. This is better than its overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is well below average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the final category, we gave this facility a grade of D for long-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Blair Ridge Health Campus Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: B

In Blair Ridge Health Campus, 7.63% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This is the percent of patients that have had a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers, which are also called bed sores, are often caused by patients not being moved frequently enough. Better nursing care can minimize the number of pressure ulcers sustained by residents in a nursing home.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: F

In Blair Ridge Health Campus, 3.89% of Patients had Serious Falls

This statistic is a measure of the percent of long-term residents who have sustained falls which resulted in major injury. Falls can happen for a variety of reasons, but high rates of major falls may be an indicator of lower levels of patient supervision.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: D

In Blair Ridge Health Campus, 1.96% of Patients had UTIs

This statistic tells you the percentage of long-term patients which suffered from a urinary tract infection. UTI's may be an indication of a facility with lower levels of hygiene. However, this statistic may also be misleading for certain facilities due to different reporting standards for these infections.

Grade: A-minus

In Blair Ridge Health Campus, 13.37% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This tells you the percent of long-term residents who are administered antipsychotic medication. High levels of antipsychotic drug use may mean that a nursing home is using these drugs to subdue residents in situations where such medications are not medically required. Nevertheless, some facilities may need to rely more on these medications due to an increased number of patients suffering from cognitive disorders.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Anxiety Medication

Grade: B-minus

In Blair Ridge Health Campus, 21.6% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This is the percent of patients who were prescribed antianxiety medications. Antianxiety drugs are prescribed to patients suffering from anxiety or depression.

This is a measure of the percentage of long-term care patients who are showing depressive symptoms. Many argue that this is a reasonable measure of patient quality of care.

This is the percentage of patients who received the flu and pneumonia vaccines. Higher vaccination rates should be the norm at this point.

Residents Maintain Autonomy

In Blair Ridge Health Campus, 17.5% Percentage of Residents

This tells you the percent of residents that retained mobility levels over time. Retaining mobility is often a great sign for residents' well-being.

Measures the number of hospitalizations per thousand days of patient care.

Short-term Care: Rehospitalizations

This datapoint measures the number of times residents are rehospitalized per 1,000 days of short-term resident care.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: C

In Blair Ridge Health Campus, 11.23 Percentage of Patients

This metric tracks the number of emergency room visits per thousand days of short-term patient care. Avoiding emergency medical situations is one way to assess patient care during rehabilitation.
