    My mother was transferred to this facility, from the hospital she was at, for rehab, after being treated for congestive heart failure. I was shocked when I came to visit her. I heard her yelling down the hall. The place had central heat that had the temperature hanging near 90. My mother was sweating and had her clothes off. They told me that they would have to make a call to see if they can get permission to turn the heat down but didn't know how long it would take. She was supposed to be on oxygen. They claimed they didn't know this. They also didn't give her any water and didn't respond to her pushing the call button. I observed most of the rooms with the call light on. They couldn't even find the nurse that was supposed to be handling that section. The bed she was in was very narrow with no side rails, which she should have had, being she's a fall risk. The staff seemed very unorganized. I signed her out and am now struggling to care for her. I have filed an abuse report with Blue Ridge. Hopefully they can get their act together before someone dies. Anyone with a heart condition should not be exposed to a hot environment. I'm sure a majority of their patients have heart trouble. If you care for your loved one DON'T take them to this facility!!!

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
