Berkeley Nursing & Rehab Center

According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, in the past, Berkeley Nursing & Rehab Center has been rated as “below average” when compared to other nursing homes. This rating is determined and published by Medicare, which helps fund the center. It was the result of relatively high numbers of health, fire safety and other deficiencies, as well as resident complaints, incidents and a “much below average” staffing rating.

Deficiencies, Complaints and Incidents

In the past, Berkeley Nursing & Rehab Center has been reported for a variety of fire safety, administrative, environmental, residents rights, pharmacy service and other deficiencies. Environmental deficiencies include hazards that could lead to preventable accidents. Fire safety deficiencies are quantified and rated against other nursing homes—according to the report filed by Medicare, this nursing home has, in the past, had four times the national average number of fire safety deficiencies. The report also cited deficiencies in administrative record-keeping, the rate of medication errors, safe food practices, bed sore treatment and the development of policies that prevent abuse, neglect, mistreatment and theft.

You should never have to worry that a nursing home is an unsafe place. If you know someone that has been injured or abused, an experienced nursing home lawyer can help.

Staffing Rating

According to the report filed by Medicare, Berkeley Nursing & Rehab Center has, in the past, earned a “much below average” staffing rating. The amount of time that each resident was allotted with staff members was reported as lower than the national average in every category, and below the Illinois average in almost every category. For example, despite having 40 percent fewer residents than the Illinois average, Berkeley Nursing & Rehab Center residents received less than half as much time with an RN.
