Finnie Good Shepherd Nursing Home

A Medicare and Medicaid participant, Finnie Good Shepherd has previously been given much below average ratings from Medicare and Medicaid inspectors. It has been cited for issues relating to the quality of care residents receive, as well as failure to store, cook, and serve food in a safe, clean way. Additionally, Finnie Good Shepherd N H has been issued citations for the lack of safety and privacy offered to residents.

Staffing Shortages

In previous reports, Medicare noted that Finnie Good Shepherd N H failed to hire only staff with no legal history of neglecting, abusing, or mistreating residents. Additionally, there was not an RN on staff for at least 8 hours per day, 7 days a week. Another possible sign of nursing home neglect, residents had spent far less time with licensed medical staff each day than the state and national averages. If you think someone you know may have suffered from a lack of care while in this facility, you should contact a nursing home neglect lawyer for more information.

Unsafe Food

This facility has been cited in the past for failing to provide food that had been stored, cooked, and served in a safe and clean way. Nursing home care residents should not be subjected to sub-par living conditions like these. When it comes to your loved ones receiving inadequate care like this, it’s hard not to wonder if there have been other instances of nursing home abuse during their stay. If you have reason to believe there is a problem, talk with a nursing home abuse attorney to see what your options are.

Potential Dangers

It has been noted that in the past, Finnie Good Shepherd N H has failed to make sure that the facility’s common areas are free from hazards that could cause accidents or risks to residents’ health, as well as failed to provide supervision that could have prevented avoidable accidents. Additionally, reports have stated that the care facility did not maintain drug records and label drugs to professional standards. Both of these can be signs of nursing home neglect, and can have serious consequences. Make sure that those you know in the care of nursing homes receive the best attention; contact a nursing home abuse lawyer if you think they haven’t been.
