Eastview Terrace Nursing Home
Medicare has decided that a “below average” rating is suited to Eastview Terrace due to results of past health inspections, with a quality measure rating of “much below average.” Numerous deficiencies in nutrition, diet and building equipment, as well as shortcomings in the facility’s quality measures, were what contributed to the “below average” rating overall.
Health Inspection Results
In the last inspection performed by Medicare at Eastview Terrace, it was discovered that food was not properly cooked and stored, and that a heating system using external venting was not installed. One incident of bedsores being untreated without preventative measures was also reported.
Even the mildest forms of abuse or neglect cannot remain overlooked at any time. Retirement home attorneys can help to make sure that those working in nursing homes are taking perfect care of residents, and if it is found that staff members are not doing their job, every victim of their irresponsible behavior will be sure to receive the best possible compensation.
Quality Measure Deficiencies
Not only do health inspection results show areas of weakness for Eastview Terrace, but so do the quality measure reports. Several areas of data are not available, including the percentage of short-term residents who reported pain, and the number of residents given influenza vaccines. On the other hand, more long-term residents complained of pain than the Illinois and national averages per home. Also, more residents have had symptoms of depression than the state and national averages.
A nursing home has a huge responsibility in caring for residents as much as possible. Any signs of negligence or mistreatment must be addressed and resolved immediately, and this is why a nursing home neglect lawyer is there to represent every nursing home resident affected by inadequate facilities and staff.
