Center Home for Hispanic Elderly
Medicare rated Center Home for Hispanic Elderly as “much below average” as a result of its equally “much below average” health inspection rating. Despite its “average” staffing rating and good quality measure rating, a list of shortcomings contributed to the final decided rating. A couple of these deficiencies even put residents at immediate risk for harm.
Lack of Quality Care
In the health inspection performed by Medicare, staff members at Center Home for Hispanic Elderly were noted as failing to ensure each resident received proper nutrition in their diets, and residents were not given the necessary care to allow them to live most comfortably. Residents were also found not to have been fully informed regarding their own health and treatments.
Deficiencies such as these are why residents can benefit from having an elder law attorney by their side. Full compensation can be easily awarded if any neglect or abuse is discovered to be occurring at any nursing home, as each and every resident has many rights provided for them by the 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act.
Problems with Pharmacy and Environment
The inspection also revealed a number of other deficiencies, which included not keeping medication errors to less than a 5% rate, not making sure that medication regimens did not contain unnecessary drugs, and creating a risk-free environment free of possible accidents.
