Overall RatingsChestnut Ridge Nsg & Rehab Ctr is a nursing home that regrettably counts among the lowest tier of such facilities in several categories. Its overall rating is a mere 1-star, the lowest possible rating, placing it in the bottom 20% of all nursing homes based on overall performance. This rating is also notably below the state average. Similarly, its health inspection rating is also a disappointing 1-star - the lowest achievable, leaving it languishing in the bottom 10% bracket in terms of health inspection ratings, a performance that is, again, subpar compared to the state average. Furthermore, the center's quality rating stands at a below-average 2-stars, the second lowest possible, situating it in the bottom 20% of facilities in terms of quality rating, once more underperforming the state average.
Staff RatingsChestnut Ridge Nsg & Rehab Ctr is a nursing home that scores a worrying 1-star staff rating, the lowest possible score, and is within the bottom 10% of all facilities concerning nursing aid staffing hours per resident per day - it offers only 1.47 hours, considerably less than the state average of 1.97 hours. However, this facility rises impressively to the top 20% in its provision of Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) staffing hours, with per resident per day figures of 1.13 hours, exceeding the state's average of 1.03 hours. Unfortunately, it slips back to the lower 30% bracket in terms of Registered Nurse (RN) staffing hours, offering just 0.36 hours, less than the state average of 0.45 hours. Despite this, Chestnut Ridge manages to ascend to the top half of all facilities for licensed staffing hours per day for each resident, with a figure of 1.48 hours, equal to the state average. Moreover, it is within the top 40% of facilities presenting physical therapist staffing hours per resident per day. With a figure of 0.08 hours, this exceeds the state's average of 0.05 hours.
Covid DataChestnut Ridge Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is notably below par in terms of its vaccination rates for both residents and staff. It falls in the lowest decile of all facilities when it comes to up-to-date vaccinations for residents, exhibiting a startling rate of 0.0%, a stark contrast to the state average which stands at 59.9%. This means zero percent of its residents are up to date with the latest vaccines. Along the similar lines, the vaccination rate of the staff is deeply concerning, falling in the bottom quintile of all facilities. Merely 3.1% of its staff is up to date with the latest vaccinations, which stands significantly below the state average of 19.8%. Such disappointing statistics reflect a dire need for increased efforts towards comprehensive immunization.
Quality MeasuresThe Chestnut Ridge Nsg & Rehab Ctr, a nursing home graded with a 2-star quality measure rating, has shown some areas of concern and a room for improvement. This facility falls in the bottom 30% where the need for help with daily activities has increased for 20.13% of the residents, a figure notably higher than the state's rate of 16.86%. Furthermore, it belongs to the lower 20% of all care homes due to the higher incidence of ulcers, found in 12.82% of its residents, surpassed the state average of 10.68%. Additionally, a worrying 33.05% of residents witnessed a worsening in their ability of independent movement, putting the home in the bottom 10% of facilities; this is a significant worrying comparison to a lesser state percentage at 17.53%. Nevertheless, the facility has shown some strengths; it ranks in the top 30% in terms of its lower rate of residents suffering from major injury due to falls at 1.85%, lower than the state's upper figure of 3.4%, and it claims a spot in the top 20% in terms of depressive symptom occurrence, which, impressively, is at zero, compared to the state's higher figure of 4.96%.
Emergency and Hospitalization Quality MeasuresThe Chestnut Ridge Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is quantitatively analysis as performing below average in several key areas compared to state norms. Scrutinizing their hospitalization rates, the facility's 2.07 hospitalizations per 1000 days fall in the bottom 40% percentile of nursing homes and is higher than the state's average of 1.78. Their outpatient emergency department per 1,000 days stands at 0.82, fortunately placing the home in the top half of facilities, despite the state's higher figure of 1.16. In terms of outpatient emergency department visits for short-stay residents, Chestnut Ridge's rate is 13.56. This percentage not only surpasses the state mean of 12.21, but lands the home in the bottom 40% of facilities. Furthermore, with a 26.27 percentage of short-stay residents being rehospitalized after a nursing home admission, the center finds itself in the bottom 30% of facilities, exceeding the state average of 22.62.

My dad was there for 13 days for rehab following a hip fracture. Because of Covid, we were not allowed to visit. We tried calling on numerous occassions to speak to him with no one answering most of the time and being told that the cordless did not reach his room by a nurse on one occassion. We left messages for the administrator to call and she never did. In that short time, my dad developed pneumonia, sever urinary tract infection, and pressure sore. We did not even know that he was ill until the facility called to say he was being sent back to the hospital. The urinary tract infection was so severe because in that time they had not changed his catheter once. After a week's stay in the hospital, he died ten days later in hospice care.
Terrible. If you care about your loved one at all do not send them here! My grandma spent one night there and wet herself and had to lay in her urine all night. She hit her called light multiple times and even yelled out for help, and no one came to assist her until the morning. She also said she could hear other patients calling out as well.
This place should be shut down the only people that care are the p/t and a few nurses if you press ur buzzer for a nurse to come well you have a 5/10 min waite while the nurses walk right by at night a nurse puts her hand down your pants i told her to get the F out of my room of we're gonna have problems she left and I checked out the next day
I would rather give no stars. My friends dad was there. He was there temp so she could get a break from hospice care at home. He was paralyzed on one side and needed assistance to eat. They w would bring his food tray in, plunk it down, and leave. Then come back, look at it, say I guess you weren't hungry and take it away. He could not feed himself without assistance!!!! They would put water on the tray in his paralysed side and leave.
They rejected my wife for admittance but to their credit, they never promised anything in the first place which I can accept. Not true was the case with Chelsea Park in Dahlonega. They promised a decision the same day then failed to respond and ran away from phone messages never returned.Yeah, that's a good business plan! Not.
This place dont deserve one star..my mom was put here for rehab from a stroke. I was told that they would email or call me on her progress that never happened I would call and call put on hold for hours leave messages no call backs. They would yell at her..she couldn't talk..no baths no washing her hair she had the same clothes on all week.plus they never gave her water. She would call them they never came my step dad would have to go to front door and get someone dont think they fed her much either .. these people are rude and non caring abusive. They called me said your mother just died we get there not a kind word no sorry just cold !!
When we checked my mom out, they gave us the wrong meds to send her home with. Came to find out they were taking someone else's medication and giving it to others. People were screaming and nobody checked on them and one lady at the front was EXTREMELY RUDE. Don't send people there. Very dirty, gives wrong meds and doesn't care about patients.
Do not send a loved one here. Make sure to read reviews including those of Medicare and State inspections, those will scare you. They do not give meds, sent my mom home in urine, the nurses have no idea what's going on with their patients, it takes a minimum of four hours to check on their patients after they start their shift, etc. One star is generous, I wish negatives were available.
