Resident Treatment Failures
The residents of Berkshire Nursing & Rehab Center have been shown to have been given improper treatment, according to Medicare’s report. Staff failed to report acts of abuse and neglect or develop anti-abuse policies. Residents were also revealed to suffer from bed sores and those with the need for extra help with daily tasks went unassisted.
Resident rights are protected by the 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act, preventing nursing home from practicing abuse and neglect. If you know of a nursing home that is allowing mistreatment to occur among residents, retirement home attorneys will fight with you to help affected residents receive their compensation.
Pharmacy Services and Nutritional Deficiencies
Resident mistreatment and improper quality care were also accompanied on the Medicare report by other issues, including the insufficient storing and cleaning methods for food, and the lack of properly labeled medications and drug records.
The lack of respect nursing home residents can receive at nursing homes is disturbing, and if you have loved ones living in the company of abusive or negligent staff, they can be represented the way they deserve to be by elder law attorneys.
