Bronzeville Park Nursing Home

With a history of fines, inadequate staffing and harm to its residents, Bronzeville Park Nursing & Living Center was once rated “much below average” by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, from which it receives funding.

In Harm’s Way

During past inspections, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has found numerous deficiencies in this home’s ability to protect its residents. For example, on more than one occasion, this home has failed either to hire people without a history of abuse or neglect, or to report and investigate reports of abuse and neglect. At other times, the home hasn’t given the treatment required to prevent or heal bed sores.

No one in a home should ever have to fear abuse or negligence. If you suspect that someone has been mistreated in a nursing home, they need an advocate. A nursing home abuse lawyer can help.

Imbalanced Staffing

In the past, Bronzeville Park Nursing & Living Center has been reported to host a relatively high number of residents. The report filed by Medicaid indicated that this home had a residency rate more than 250 percent higher than the national average, and indicated also that the amount of attention each resident received suffered. For example, the number of hours that each resident received with a licensed member of the nursing staff was less than half of the Illinois and national averages.

Big nursing homes are only effective if they are adequately staffed. If your loved one isn’t receiving the attention he needs because of overcrowding, a nursing home neglect lawyer can help.

Fined by Medicare

Medicare and Medicaid are federal services, so when a beneficiary of their funding fails to meet their standards, those beneficiaries may be fined. In the past, Bronzeville Park Nursing & Living Center has been fined over $1,000 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
