Evergreen Health Care Center
More recent health inspections at Evergreen Health Care Center made by Medicare have determined that the facility is of a “much below average” quality. The reports mention instances of mistreatment and negligence from staff which – together with deficiencies in construction – resulted in the “much below average” total rating.
Resident Mistreatment and Violation of Rights
The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 strictly prevents nursing home staff from engaging in abusive and neglectful behavior. Should any of the rights provided by this act be disrespected, any resident affected can receive compensation, which can be achieved with the help of an experienced nursing home abuse attorney.
The Medicare report for Evergreen Health Care Center noted that policies were not developed preventing abuse or neglect and other crimes that can be committed in and around the facility. Services preventing infections of the urinary tract and bladder were also not provided for certain residents. Resident rights violated included the lack of notification about the different rules and services of the facility as well as financial information such as Medicaid benefits.
Deficiencies in Construction for Safety
Along with these other deficiencies in the treatment of residents, the Medicare report covers construction faults like failing to have exits that are always accessible, properly separated corridors, locatable exit signs, and a fire alarm system that is easily heard throughout the building.
Illinois nursing home negligence attorneys can effectively take care of abuse cases by gaining compensation for ever victimized resident, and regaining respect for their rights from the nursing home. There’s never a good reason for any instances of abuse or neglect to occur, and they should always be brought into the spotlight to prevent them from happening again in the future to any resident.
