Alden Terrace of McHenry Rehab Nursing Home
A Medicare rating of “below average” was given to Alden Terrace of McHenry Rehab because of recent inspections. The report lists several reasons for this overall rating, which was given in large part due to the “much below average” results of health inspections. Instances of poor quality care were cited, as well as issues with the respect of resident rights and pharmacy services.
Improper Quality Care
In the Medicare report, necessary care was revealed to have been below Medicare’s standards, with the facility failing to prevent urinary tract and bladder infections with the right services, utilize feeding tubes and other assistors when needed, and provide dental services for every resident.
Instances such as these are unacceptable in any nursing home environment, and any resident who experiences such neglect or mistreatment is perfectly able to receive compensation for it. All that’s needed is the services of an elder care lawyer to put residents and their families at ease.
Pharmacy Service Issues
In addition to quality care being insufficient, pharmacy services were determined in the report to have been unable to keep residents away from drugs that weren’t necessary, and that each individual’s medications were not managed the way they should have been.
Cases of negligence such as this should be given the attention they require by nursing home negligence lawyers, ensuring that further harm to residents is prevented. It can be difficult to come forward, but instances of abuse and neglect anywhere should always be put to a stop as quickly as possible.
