Although we were not high on this nursing home's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category scores was in the category of long-term care. This ended up being its second best category. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. Long-term care grades are important for individuals looking for personal care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 75.63636 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be several points below what we were hoping for. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Curis at Lynchburg Nursing & Rehabilitation Center?
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. The nursing category is based on many factors, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is a very low figure. Finally, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the last area, this nursing home did not fare very well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most critical for folks requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its abysmal rating in this category, we were not shocked to discover this facility provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
