Brightview Care Center
Despite an above-average track record of fire safety, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services once found deficiencies in this nursing home serious enough to merit a “below average” rating.
Following Safety Precautions
During one of its usual inspections, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services once found that this nursing home was not taking adequate precautions to protect the well-being of its residents. For example, the study shows that the nursing home did not have an infection control program, and that residents were not adequately safe from “serious medication errors.” These deficiencies were deemed corrected at a later date.
When nursing homes don’t perform due diligence, your loved ones can pay the price. A preventable medication error or infection can have devastating consequences. If you think that someone you care about was a victim of this type of negligence, contact a nursing home neglect lawyer for help.
Staffing and Residency
According to the Medicaid report, Brightview Care Center has had a number of residents higher than the national and Illinois averages. The number of RN hours each resident receives per day was, in turn, found to be lower than national and Illinois averages. Despite the variety of rehabilitative services this home provides, the average time each resident was allotted to spend with a physical therapy staff member was only 1 minute per day.
Seniors need consistent care from trained professionals, and no substitution will do when their health is at stake. An attorney of elder law can help you determine if your loved one is receiving adequate attention.
