Frankfort Healthcare & Rehab Center
In the past, Medicare and Medicaid inspectors have given Frankfort Healthcare & Rehab Center below average ratings. This 57-bed facility provides nursing and rehab services, but has previously been cited for failing to ensure the environment is safe for residents. Additionally, in comparison to state and national averages, this care center offers far less time with medical staff to patients. There have been quality of life issues as well, with residents at this location reporting higher percentages of depressive symptoms than state and national averages.
Unsafe Living Conditions
Frankfort Healthcare & Rehab Center has previously been cited for not providing three meals at regular times to its residents, and for failing to store, cook, and serve food in a safe, clean way. There have also been reports that this facility has not made sure that the nursing home grounds are free from accident hazards and that staff doesn’t provide supervision that could prevent avoidable accidents. A report from Medicare also noted that this care center has failed to provide rooms large enough for residents to live comfortably. These are all unacceptable, and can be signs of nursing home abuse. You don’t have to tolerate conditions like these. If you or someone you know has been dealing with problems relating to unsafe living conditions at this location, contact a nursing home abuse attorney today.
Lack of Medical Attention
Inspectors have previously noted that Frankfort Healthcare & Rehab Center has failed to make sure that each resident gets an accurate medical assessment from a qualified health professional. Further, staff has neglected to make sure that each resident’s drug regimen is free from any unnecessary medications and reports have indicated that lab services and tests have not been processed in a timely manner in the past. These are all indications that nursing home abuse may be happening. If you suspect that someone you know needs more medical care than they are receiving while in nursing home care, contact a nursing home neglect attorney for more information on how to proceed.
Quality of Life
Frankfort Healthcare and Rehab Center has reported higher rates of depressive symptoms in its patients than the state and national averages, and has also been cited for failure to keep residents free from physical restraints unless it is medically necessary. They have also been reported as failing to reasonably accommodate the needs and preferences of the residents. These are all signs of nursing home neglect. You and your loved ones should not have to settle for sub-par care and living conditions. If you need more information about your case, don’t wait to talk to a nursing home neglect lawyer.
