Effingham Rehab & Health Care Center
In its most recent Medicare inspections, Effingham Rehab & Health Care Center received an “average” rating. However, the staffing inspection revealed some insufficiencies that garnered a “below average” rating for that section. This was coupled with a “below average” quality measure rating, where other deficiencies were found.
In the Medicare reports, licensed nursing staff at Effingham Rehab & Health Care Center failed to spend more than half of the amount of time spent on residents in the state and national averages. RN and LPN/LVN hours spent on residents also did not meet Medicare standards.
Nursing home employees have a responsibility to provide nothing but the most thorough, effective care for every resident. If any individuals are found to undergo neglect or abuse, Illinois nursing home lawyers can fully restore respect for them, and help them gain full compensation for their pain.
Problems with Quality Measures
Along with the insufficient time spent on residents by various staff, more residents complained of pain than the Illinois and national averages, and more long-stay residents experienced urinary tract infections. A larger number of residents also experienced pressure ulcers.
Nursing homes carry the responsibility to ensure that every resident receives excellent living conditions at all times. Since nursing home residents may not even be aware that they’re being abused or neglected, a nursing home abuse attorney can help the residents’ family and friends find out if a nursing home is allowing for mistreatment, and get the right care for them in the end.
