Highland Park Nursing & Rehab
In past Medicare reports, Highland Park Nursing & Rehab has been given a “below average” rating because of its failure to meet Medicare standards. The shortcomings involved resident mistreatment and violation of rights, as well as dietary and environmental deficiencies. All of the problems found with this home led to the “below average” overall rating issued. If you or anyone you love has had to suffer through any neglectful or abusive behavior from nursing home staff, all residents who have experienced this can be compensated for with the assistance of an elder care attorney.
Resident Care Issues
Nursing home residents should always be able to rely on their residence for the best care available. If that care is lacking in any way, a nursing home neglect lawyer can see to it that rights are restored and that this kind of mistreatment never occurs again.
Problems with resident care have been reported in Medicare’s inspections at Highland Park Nursing & Rehab, with specific deficiencies including the inability to keep residents free from physical restraint who didn’t need it, and to provide professional care in accordance with patients’ plans in order to ensure their highest wellbeing. Residents who required extra assistance with basic tasks, including eating and drinking and personal hygiene, did not receive it.
Dietary and Environmental Issues
Further instances of deficiency at Highland Park Nursing & Rehab included not providing residents with three meals a day, or providing bedtime snacks. The nursing home itself was found not to be in an accident-free area, with little supervision present where risks were present. An infection prevention program was also not put into action. Administrators were also not found to post information about nurse staff on a daily basis.
If, at any time, a nursing home is discovered to provide inadequate care for any resident, all of those negatively affected are entitled to full compensation for their inconveniences and pain. It can be challenging to muster the courage to speak up about abuse or neglect taking place at nursing homes, but it must be addressed and stopped. That is why elder care lawyers are available to help residents win any and all cases of abuse.
