Blue Point Nursing & Rehabilitation Center | Maryland Lawyers

Blue Point Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is in Mount Washington not far from Sinai Hospital.

Blue Point has 125 beds and has an occupancy rate of about 85.6%. It earned its Medicare and Medicaid certification in 2002. The center only received one star on its last health inspections test, which looks at how well they complied with the standard for food preparation and health-related activities.

The areas of concern were housekeeping services and ensuring that each resident was receiving an accurate assessment by a health professional. However, the facility received five out of five stars in the quality measures category, which looks at the percentage of residents who got the care that they were recommended to get.

Lastly, Blue Point Nursing was noted to have many fire deficiencies by the National Fire Protection Agency, failing in the categories of weekly/monthly testing of generators, adequate water supply for the sprinkler system, and approved the installation of fire alarm systems. This is concerning because many of the residents are likely to need assistance in the event of a fire emergency and fire alarm systems are key to being alerted as soon as possible about a potential fire.

What does fire have to do with nursing home lawsuits? Setting aside the issue that our lawyers do see nursing home fire cases, you will find that nursing homes that make mistakes on non-safety issues also make mistakes with safety issues that lead to claims.

We have not found any cases filed against Blue Point Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, but the facility has paid one fine in the past three years, for $296,000.
