Elmwood Nursing & Rehab Center
Medicare has labeled Elmwood Nursing & Rehab Center as a “below average” facility. Health inspections gave the home a rating of “much below average,” with deficiencies including mistreatment of residents, dishonoring of their rights and overall resident care that did not meet Medicare standards. This nursing home is subject to more frequent inspections as a result of consistently poor quality inspections, and can be considered a Special Focus Facility.
Resident Mistreatment and Care Deficiencies
Residents always deserve the best treatment under professional care. Any instances of neglect or abusive behavior are entirely unacceptable and need to receive immediate attention. They shouldn’t be overlooked, as residents can sometimes be unaware that they’re being mistreated at all. This is why nursing home abuse attorneys are crucial in helping end it before it can become even more serious.
The reports made by Medicare revealed that policies protecting residents from instances of neglect and abuse were not put into effect and that residents were not provided the best care that ensured their highest wellbeing. Residents who required extra assistance were also not provided for sufficiently.
Other Deficiencies Reported
Other instances where residents were not correctly cared for involved neglectful behavior among staff members. One of these deficiencies included not providing injections, ureostomy, colostomy, ileostomy and respiratory care for those requiring them. In a couple of instances, specialized rehabilitative services were not utilized as per individuals’ care plans.
Deficiencies such as these are why having an Illinois nursing home negligence attorney fighting alongside your friends and loved ones is important in cases of mistreatment. Any resident experiencing improper care has the right to receive compensation in full as well as see those responsible for the abuse respect every resident’s right, as provided in the Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987.
