Avenue Care Nursing & Rehab Center
Due to recent deficiencies found in health inspections, Medicare has rated Avenue Care Nursing & Rehab Center as “below average.” Although the health inspection rating was “average” and the quality rating was “above average,” the “much below average” staffing rating was what determined the “below average” ranking. The quality of staff did not meet Medicare standards, failing to meet Illinois and national averages when it comes to giving residents the proper attention.
RN Staffing Deficiencies
The Medicare report stated that the RN staff at Avenue Care Nursing & Rehab Center had not met the national and Illinois averages of spent time with residents on a daily basis. With more residents than both the national and Illinois averages, RNs failed to spend half the average time with residents each day. CNA staff also only spent just over half the average expected time with residents.
In the event of neglect, elder care lawyers can ensure that either the nursing home staff responsible meet resident requirements (as per the 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act) or they can compensate for residents who have been abused or neglected under their care.
A couple of other deficiencies were found, according to the Medicare reports, including the failure to provide proper care for residents that would be able to enhance their overall wellbeing, and the inability to provide an accident-free environment.
If there is ever a time when a nursing home resident becomes a victim of abusive or negligent behavior, an Illinois nursing home lawyer can allow comfort and peace to take its place. There is always an opportunity for full compensation in every case of mistreatment.
