Granite Nursing & Rehabilitation

Providing nursing care and rehabilitation for up to 86 residents, Granite Nursing & Rehabilitation in Granite City, Illinois has previously earned below average ratings from Medicare. In the past, it has been cited for failing to give residents proper treatment for preventing and caring for bed sores and infection. They have also been cited for failing to keep the rate of medication errors such as giving the wrong drug, the wrong dose, or administering medication at the wrong time, less than five percent. Finally, this facility reports significantly lower amounts of time with RNs available to residents than the average amount of time in the state and country.

Lack of Infection Prevention

Nursing homes should be places where residents can expect quality care, and that includes staying free of infection and injury while they are staying there. Unfortunately, Granite Nursing & Rehabilitation has been cited for failing to provide proper treatment for bed sores, including prevention techniques as well as providing care for existing bed sores. This could be an indication of potential nursing home neglect, a serious infraction as bed sores can lead to tragic and painful outcomes if they are left untreated. If someone you know has been affected by untreated bed sores as a result of lacking care at a nursing facility, you may want to consider talking to a nursing home neglect attorney for advice on what you can do about it.

Frequent Medication Errors

State guidelines specify that the acceptable rate of medication errors should be less than five percent. Medication errors include residents being given the wrong dose, the wrong drug, or the right drug/dose at the wrong time, and in the past, this facility has been cited for not keeping their rate of errors below five percent. Since medication errors can have grave consequences, it is essential for nursing homes to maintain lower rates of error. If someone you love has had issues with receiving the wrong medication or any other medication error, contact a nursing home abuse lawyer for help. Medication errors can be a sign of nursing home abuse, as they may demonstrate a lack of proper medical care, and they should be taken very seriously.

Understaffing Issues

Compared to the state and national averages, Granite Nursing & Rehabilitation reports less time with RNs available for residents. The national average is 48 minutes per day available for residents to spend with RNs, and the Illinois average is 54 minutes—this facility reports nearly half, with only 30 minutes for residents to spend with RNs each day. Proper staffing measures are imperative to ensure that residents in nursing homes are adequately cared for, and when there is not enough time available for residents to spend with medical professionals, it can be a sign of nursing home neglect. Contact a nursing home neglect lawyer for help.
