While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This score is much more impressive than the place's overall score. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities next most favorable category is long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this category. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 95.06315 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Blue Ridge Rehab Center?
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing score includes a number of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we scored is short-term care, in which this nursing home received a rock bottom score in this area also. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously very concerning. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its abysmal grade in this area, we weren't surprised to discover this nursing home provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
