About Freeport Rehab & Health Care Center
Serving residents in Freeport and its surrounding areas, this 143-bed facility provides rehabilitation services, in-house dialysis, a fitness center, nursing care, and hospice care. The facility has been cited for failure to notify residents, their doctors, and their families of changes in the resident’s situation, and for failing to properly manage each resident’s personal money. They have also failed to upkeep a safe living environment. Finally, reports have noted the facility’s much-lower than state and national average rate of vaccinating residents with the flu and pneumonia vaccines.
In previous reports, Medicare inspectors have noted Freeport Rehab & Health Care Center’s lack of proper holding, securing, and managing of residents’ money that is deposited within the nursing home. They have also failed to immediately inform residents, their doctors, and their families of changes to the resident’s situation at the home. They have also, in the past, failed to follow procedures for transferring residents’ funds to the appropriate party following the residents’ deaths. These oversights can be an indication that there is nursing home neglect elsewhere in the facility. No one should have to wonder what is happening or what will happen to them or their personal funds while they are staying in a nursing home. If this has happened to you or someone you love, don’t hesitate to contact a nursing home neglect lawyer for help.
Unsafe Facility Grounds
Freeport Rehab & Health Care Center has previously failed to make sure that the grounds and common areas are free from accident hazards, and have neglected to provide supervision that could prevent avoidable accidents. Additionally, they have not instituted policies that investigate, control, and prevent infection from spreading. Not maintaining a safe facility is a sign of nursing home abuse. When these symptoms are present, it is likely that they are not the only things lacking in terms of care. If you suspect someone you know is dealing with an unsafe environment, call a nursing home abuse attorney for information on how to proceed with your case.
Failure to Immunize
Obviously, maintaining optimal health for residents should be a priority in any medical facility. Freeport Rehab & Health Care Center has reported numbers far lower than the state and national averages for immunizing its residents for the flu and for pneumonia. If a nursing home is failing to provide adequate immunizations for its residents, there could be other areas in the home that also need improvement. Not providing access to medical care such as this could be a sign of nursing home neglect elsewhere, so it’s important not to dismiss it as an innocent oversight. If you or someone you love hasn’t been receiving the appropriate care while in the hands of this location, contact a nursing home neglect attorney to find out what you can do about it.
