Hillcrest Retirement Village
In the past, Medicare has given a “below average” rating to Hillcrest Retirement Village because of numerous inadequacies in resident care, including dishonoring of their rights and environmental deficiencies. All of these faults together resulted in both the health inspection and staffing inspection receiving “below average” ratings, which contributed to the overall rating. One of the complaints which appeared on the report caused actual harm to residents.
Disrespect for Resident Rights
All nursing home resident rights are protected by the Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987, and all nursing homes are required to meet the standards presented in it, along with Medicare’s. If for any reason a nursing home fails to meet these requirements, an Illinois nursing home negligence attorney can represent all residents injured either emotionally or physically for full compensation.
The noted inadequacies in the report included the failure to provide necessary care for residents in order for them to live the highest quality of life, not giving residents proper notice of their rights as well as nursing home rules and services. Residents were also not able to easily view results of nursing home inspections.
In the Medicare report, Hillcrest Retirement Village was cited for not ensuring a risk-free environment, free of risks to residents. A solid program preventing the spread of infection was also not implemented, and the room space requirements for residents were not met. One administrative deficiency was noted, citing administrators for not making sure that all nurse aides are qualified.
Any time it is discovered that a nursing home facility is not providing the best possible living environment for residents, elder law attorneys are there to help make sure that they meet Medicare standards, awarding compensation to all residents who experienced mistreatment of any kind.
