Fayette County Hospital
Located in Vandalia, Illinois, Fayette County Hospital provides space for 85 residents to receive nursing care. In the past, Medicare and Medicaid inspectors have given it average ratings. There have been reports of physically restraining patients, pharmacy service inadequacies, and Fayette County Hospital has a rate much higher than the national and state averages of patients who experience pressure ulcers, or bed sores.
Risk of Infection
Compared to the state and national averages, Fayette County Hospital has much higher rates of patients who have urinary tract infections and patients who have or have had a catheter inserted and left in their bladder. These are conditions that can be severely uncomfortable and painful for residents, and can be a sign of nursing home neglect. If you think your loved ones aren’t getting the attention they need, contact a nursing home neglect attorney for a consultation on the case.
In previous Medicare and Medicaid reports, Fayette County Hospital was shown to have higher than average rates of residents who experienced pressure ulcers, or bed sores. There have also been instances of patients reporting moderate to severe pain. These two things can be signs of nursing home abuse, a condition that no one should have to experience. When your loved ones aren’t getting the care they deserve, it can be distressing and confusing to know what to do. Talking with a nursing home abuse lawyer can shed some light on your situation.
Mistakes with Medicine
Past reports from Medicare and Medicaid inspectors have shown that Fayette County Hospital has failed to make sure that each resident is only taking the necessary medications and that each resident’s entire prescription regimen is being monitored to ensure the patient achieves healthy well-being. Additionally, this facility has failed to maintain drug records and properly label drugs according to professional standards. These types of issues can be chalked up to nursing home abuse, as medications are a serious part of a person’s health. Your relatives and loved ones shouldn’t be concerned that they are taking too many or the wrong medications. If you believe someone you know has experienced problems with their medicine while staying at this facility, contact a nursing home abuse attorney for advice on what to do next.
