Arthur Nursing Home
The Arthur Home, a retirement community in Arthur, IL, has been cited as “much below average” by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which funds the facility in part. This rating is due to a number of fines, citations and complaints levied against The Arthur Home in recent years. In many cases, this would call for hiring a professional nursing home negligence lawyer.
Not Making the Grade
When it comes to providing their residents with properly stored, cook and serve food, The Arthur Home has, in the past, failed to deliver. Additionally, The Arthur Home has failed to maintain the confidentiality of each of its residents’ personal/medical records, or to hire only staff members without histories of abuse or neglect of their residents.
Nursing home abuse or neglect should never be acceptable when you need care for your loved one. If you suspect mistreatment in a retirement community, don’t hesitate to ask for a little help from the experts — call an Illinois nursing home abuse attorney now.
A History of Carelessness
At times, The Arthur Home has displayed negligence when it comes to the safety of its residents. This includes failure to conduct weekly facility inspections or monthly generator checks, and in one noted incident, failing to check the working order of the emergency alarms in each resident’s room resulted in a preventable injury. This is in addition to previous complaints against The Arthur Home for not adequately ensuring that its nursing home area is free from accident hazards, with no proper supervision on hand to avoid incidents.
When selecting a nursing home, it is of the upmost importance to make sure the facility is properly monitored and routinely inspected. It could be time to consult a nursing home abuse attorney if you believe this is not the case.
