Claridge Healthcare Center
After numerous health inspections with an overall rating of “much below average,” Claridge Healthcare Center has an overall rating of “below average” in its past Medicare profile. The reasons for these ratings include deficiencies in treatment of residents, as well as those in environmental and administrative quality. Other instances of abuse and neglect have also contributed to the “below average” rating.
The Medicare reports state that this facility has failed to hire only staff members with a clean record devoid of any abuse or neglect, and policies were not adequately developed that prevent mistreatment of any kind from occurring among residents, as well as other criminal activity. Inspectors also found that the facility did not provide adequate nutrition in its meals.
The 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act has worked to preserve necessary rights for nursing home residents, and if residents are not having their rights honored fully, a nursing home negligence attorney can represent them to earn them proper compensation.
Administrative and Environmental Faults
Some of the complaints reported in the health inspection regarding environmental quality included uncomfortable sound levels, hazardous areas and the lack of an infection prevention program. Some of the administrative deficiencies reported included the incorrect training of employees for emergency situations, and administrators also failed to perform assessments of the facility and deal with deficiencies on a quarterly basis.
If any kind of mistreatment is present at any nursing home, all affected residents can have their rights respected the way they should be by bringing irresponsible nursing homes to justice. Nursing home lawyers are always there to keep loved ones safe and happy when in need of quality assisted living.
