Ambassador Nursing & Rehab Center
Despite above-average ratings based on assessments from this nursing home’s residents, below-average ratings in staffing and health inspection have earned this Chicago nursing home an overall “below average” rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the past.
Building and Structural Deficiencies
In a previous survey of the Ambassador Nursing & Rehab Center, inspectors found a series of deficiencies on the premises that, despite representing a minimal risk of harm, may have affected what they found to be many of the home’s residents. For example, inspectors determined that the building did not have properly maintained automatic sprinklers, properly installed heating and ventilation systems or a fire alarm system that residents and staff could hear throughout the entire facility. The home was found to have a total number of fire safety deficiencies that is twice the national average. These and other deficiencies were later remedied.
Negligence is a serious infraction that puts residents at risk. When a home doesn’t properly maintain its facilities, it can result in avoidable accidents that cause lasting harm to its residents. A nursing home negligence lawyer can help you determine if a loved one has been victimized by carelessness.
Another inspection found that some residents were inadequately protected from abuse and physical punishment, putting their health and safety at immediate risk.
No one entrusted to the care of a home should be a victim of nursing home abuse. An experienced nursing home abuse lawyer in Chicago can help you identify whether or not your loved one has been abused, neglected or otherwise placed in harm’s way.
