Claremont Rehab & Living Center
Inspections made by Medicare have helped determine that a rating of “below average” is appropriate for Claremont Rehab & Living Center. The health inspection rating itself is “much below average” due to several issues found within the nursing home’s operations, which contributed to the overall “below average” rating given. These ratings are in accordance with Medicare national standards for nursing homes.
Harm to Residents
Nursing home residents should never be put in harm’s way, and if they are in any way, whether through neglect or abuse, elder law attorneys can prevent further instances from occurring ever again. The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 was put into action to protect all nursing home residents from even the possibility of harm.
Several deficiencies listed in Claremont Rehab & Living Center’s Medicare inspection report were shown as causing actual harm to residents, including the failure to develop proper policies for screening employees and training them to ensure they had no histories of abuse, not keeping the property free of accident risks, and inability to make sure that nurse aides working for less than the minimum amount of time had been determined to be competent.
Problems with Fire Safety Systems
Mistreatment of residents doesn’t simply come in the form of direct ignorance or harm inflicted by staff, but also the structure of the building itself. Illinois nursing home lawyers also build a case around the fact that nursing homes might be constructed in such a way that accommodates for fire hazards and other causes for injury.
In the Medicare inspections, it was found that inadequate safety measures were put into the construction of corridors and doors, which allowed for smoke to pass through and did not resist fire long enough. There also was no record of quarterly fire drills conducted in various conditions.
