Alden Northmoor Rehab & HCC
Recent Medicare reports state that Alden Northmoor Rehab & HCC is of “below average” quality according to Medicare standards. The health inspections resulted in a rating of “below average” as well, along with a “below average” quality measure rating. Several deficiencies in care for residents, including those in the areas of resident rights and nutrition and diet, were responsible for the final rating, as well as other deficiencies.
Problems with Resident Care
Residents with special needs were not given the right care, according to the report, with injections, colostomies, respiratory care and other treatments not administered. It was also reported that Northmoor Rehab & HCC residents, their doctors and families were not notified of any changes made to their living situation. Individuals’ needs and preferences were also not accommodated for properly, and both dignity and respect were not preserved.
If it’s ever learned that a nursing home resident is undergoing abuse or neglect from irresponsible staff, a nursing home abuse lawyer can build his or her case so it doesn’t continue, and allow for ample compensation. The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 was created specifically to ensure every resident has a clear set of rights, and if they are violated action should be taken immediately.
Nutrition, Diet and Pharmacy Service Issues
The Medicare inspection report listed a number of deficiencies in the nutrition residents received, as it was found that nutritional food was not prepared properly in the right conditions. Licensed pharmacists were also discovered not to have reviewed each and every resident’s medications.
Any time a resident is not found to be given the right treatment and respect at a nursing home, Illinois nursing home abuse attorneys are available to represent them so that they’re finally heard.
