Fairview Care Center of Joliet

When its reports indicated a staggering number of complaints and incidents, along with a number of health deficiencies significantly higher than national and state averages, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services gave Fairview Care Center of Joliet a “much below average” rating. Between this and its history of fines and payment denials, the center has, in the past, been given a special designation reserved for homes that demonstrate “persistent poor quality of care.”

Inspections and Complaints

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services base their classifications on inspection findings, and in the case of Fairview Care Center of Joliet, their findings haven’t always been favorable. At one point, the number of health deficiencies in this facility was more than six times the Illinois average. The home has also been found to have deficiencies in record-keeping, accident prevention, medication error prevention, residents’ rights, medical care and resident mistreatment.

All incidents and complaints are also reported to Medicare and Medicaid, and in the past, this center has accumulated relatively high numbers of complaints and incidents in short amounts of time. For example, during one 18-month period, the center accumulated four dozen complaints and incidents, including those related to residents’ rights, protecting residents from abuse, hiring staff members with no history of abuse or mistreatment, preventing and healing bed sores, preventing avoidable accidents and preventing medication errors.

Mistreatment, abuse and rights violations are all serious offenses. Always encourage honest communication with a loved one in a home, and if you suspect abuse, contact a nursing home abuse lawyer as soon as possible.

Penalties and Special Focus

As government programs that provide funding, Medicare and Medicaid are entitled to fine nursing homes that don’t meet their standards, or to withhold their funding until they make improvements. This center has in the past, been designated as a “Special Focus Facility.” This distinction is given to nursing homes with a “history of persistent poor care.”

You don’t have to sit back and allow abuse to take place. A nursing home lawyer specializing in abuse and neglect can help you determine when something is seriously wrong.
