Concord Nursing & Rehab Center
With a reported history of violations related to abuse, neglect, mistreatment and theft, Concord Nursing & Rehab Center has been rated in the past as “below average.” This rating comes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which also publishes detailed reports explaining past violations, fines and deficiency citations. Despite what the report classified as “much above average” quality measures, this center was also reported for a number of resident treatment and fire safety deficiencies, which ultimately earned its below-average rating.
Quality of Resident Treatment
As reported by Medicare, this center has, in the past, been cited for various resident treatment failures. For example, on more than one occasion, this center was cited for failing to develop, write and implement policies that would forbid and prevent patient abuse, mistreatment, neglect and theft—in one instance, this put the health or safety of patients in immediate jeopardy. The report also notes that in the past, this center has been cited for failing to provide residents with the care they needed to maintain their highest possible well-being.
No one entrusted to the care of a nursing and rehab center should have to worry about their safety or personal well-being. If you suspect that someone you know is dealing with improper treatment from the staff of a home, a nursing home abuse lawyer can help.
Fire Safety Deficiencies
According to the Medicare report, this center has been cited in the past for a relatively high number of fire safety deficiencies—in one report, it had more than four times the national average. These deficiencies included exits that were not accessible at all times, a lack of a written emergency evacuation plan and a lack of properly maintained smoke detectors. These and other safety deficiencies all contributed to the center’s below-average overall rating.
In a poorly prepared nursing home, preventable accidents can turn into tragedies. If a loved one has suffered at the hands of an unsafe facility, a nursing home lawyer can help.
