Hickory Nursing Pavillion
Past reports made by Medicare have labeled Hickory Nursing Pavilion as a “below average” nursing home, after health and staff inspections revealed numerous deficiencies contributing to the final decided rating. In the case of this residence, quality care, pharmacy services and the area’s environment did not meet Medicare standards for residents’ care. Staff were also found not to be spending the necessary average amount of time according to state and national averages, helping to inspire the overall rating.
Care and Pharmacy Deficiencies
According to the Medicare inspections, residents with limited mobility were not given the proper care to ensure that they can get around the Hickory Nursing Pavilion’s property. Pharmaceutical deficiencies included the inability to mark drugs and medications properly, according to professional medical standards. Drug records were also not maintained, which helped allow for unnecessary drugs to appear in drug regimens that were poorly monitored.
Any time a nursing home resident is a victim of even a modicum of abuse or neglect, an elder care attorney should be consulted to represent every resident affected. No resident should have to experience the pains of mistreatment at any time, which is why the 1987 Nursing Home Reform Act was put into action.
Environmental and Staff Shortcomings
Other areas cited as being deficient in the Medicare report included those of the environment and staff. The home area was not ensured to be safe, comfortable and accessible, leaving residents, visitors and staff without a completely risk-free and comfortable atmosphere. RN, LPN, LVN, CAN and Physical Therapy staff were also, according to the report, not spending the state and national average amounts of time with residents.
Any time a nursing home resident is not given the right care and attention, an Illinois nursing home negligence lawyer can represent all of those residents who deserve full compensation for their pains. All too often do nursing homes fail to maintain an environment fit for every resident, and this problem needs to change immediately.
