Briar Place Nursing Home
More recent inspections of Briar Place have earned it a rating of “average” by Medicare standards, but while the health inspection’s “average” rating and quality measure rating of “much above average” met these requirements, the establishment’s staffing rating of “much below average” did not. Here are the reasons for the low rating in this area, along with some of the deficiencies found in the health inspection.
Nursing home staff should always be at their best, providing the care every resident requires with kindness and understanding. Sometimes abuse and negligence occur, where residents don’t receive the attention they not only deserve, but also need. When this happens, an elder attorney can ensure that they are represented the right way and given more than ample compensation.
The staff working at Briar Place have been cited as “much below average” in their quality of care. RN and CNA staff members have, according to the Medicare report, spent on average half the state and national average amount of time on residents. Physical therapy staff time spent was even less than half the state and national averages.
In the healthcare inspections, the Medicare report states that Briar Place failed to provide the right treatment and services, special treatments such as feeding tubes, and properly prepared food. There also didn’t appear to be a program to help eliminate the threat of infection, and areas were not viewed as safe, clean and comfortable for inhabitants.
In cases of and neglect in nursing homes, it can be hard to admit that there’s a problem when you’re unsure of how to handle it. Illinois nursing home lawyers can keep residents from enduring long periods of suffering by bringing light to the situation and effectively ending the abuse, with the victims fully compensated.
