All American Nursing Home
Located in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood, All American Nursing Home provides therapy, nursing care, and hospice care, among other services, to area residents. It can accommodate up to 144 residents, and Medicare has in the past ranked the facility below average for reasons including, but not limited to, lack of policies that protect residents and other safety measures.
Potential for Abuse
Resident complaints as well as Medicare reports have cited All American Nursing Home’s failure to hire only staff members who have no legal history of abusing, neglecting, or mistreating residents in nursing homes. This could be a gross oversight and could lead to problems between residents and staff. Nursing home abuse is all too common—if you suspect it is happening to someone you care about, don’t wait to take action. Contact a nursing home abuse lawyer for help.
When you are in the care of a nursing home, you should have a choice of which doctor(s) you see as well as some say when it comes to your care plan. All American Nursing Home has been reported as failing to let each resident choose his/her own doctor, and Medicare also reported that the facility failed to notify residents’ doctor and family member(s) of a resident’s change of situation within the home, be it injury, decline in health, or a simple room change. A lack of autonomy may be perceived by a resident as nursing home neglect. These should be taken into consideration when thinking about the bigger picture at a facility. If you think something may be wrong with the facility where a loved one is staying, you may want to discuss the matter with a nursing home neglect attorney to assess the situation.
When staying in a nursing home such as All American Nursing Home, residents should of course have access to adequate medical care. Unfortunately, reports from Medicare indicated that the time each resident had to spend with RNs, nurse practitioners, and CNAs was far less than state and national averages. Additionally, in the past, All American Nursing Home was shown to have administered flu shots and pneumonia shots far less than the state and national averages. When it comes to the health of someone you know, missing out on time with medical professionals or vaccinations is unacceptable and can be a sign of nursing home neglect.
