Caseyville Nursing & Rehab Center
Offering rehabilitation services as well as nursing home care, Caseyville Nursing and Rehab Center has been rated much below average by Medicare and Medicaid Service inspectors in the past. Infractions included failing to hire a social worker, failing to keep each resident’s medical and personal records private, and failing to provide the necessary care to ensure a high quality of life for its residents.
Caseyville Nursing and Rehab Center has been cited in the past for failing to keep residents free from physical restraints, unless needed for medical treatment. While restraints can be necessary and helpful at times, such as after a resident undergoes surgery and needs to keep still to prevent injury, improper usage can be a sign of nursing home abuse. If you think your loved one has experienced improper usage of physical restraints, contact a nursing home abuse attorney to discuss the case at hand. This facility was also in the past cited for lacking a policy that prevents mistreatment, neglect, or abuse of residents and theft of resident property.
Previous reports from Medicare have shown that residents report higher rates of having depressive symptoms, and Caseyville Nursing and Rehab Center also shows higher than the national average of residents who lose too much weight. Some residents also experienced new or worsened pressure ulcers, or bedsores, while in the care of this facility. These are all signs of nursing home neglect and should not be accepted when you are choosing a place for your loved one to receive care. In the event that someone you know has been a victim of neglect, a nursing home neglect lawyer can help you navigate the situation.
This nursing home has been rated much below average when it comes to staffing. The total number of staff hours for each resident, as well as the time offered with an RN, an LPN/LVN, a CNA, and physical therapy staff, were well below the national average of time offered. Combined with other factors, a facility being short-staffed can lead to nursing home abuse, as staff may feel overworked and overstressed. Your loved ones shouldn’t have to accept sub-par care—contact a nursing home abuse attorney if you think there may be a problem.
