Lake Cook Terrace Nursing Center

Once rated “much below average” in a report filed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Lake Cook Terrace Nursing Center has been cited in the past for deficiencies in its environment, quality care, resident rights and fire safety. This center has also been cited specifically for issues related to abuse and neglect, resident dignity and inadequate infection control. All of these issues contribute to the “much below average” rating, which was determined and published by Medicare and Medicaid, which help fund the center.

Inspections, Infections and Complaints

In addition to a total number of fire deficiencies more than four times the national average, this center has previously been cited for a variety of safety and resident well-being violations. For example, at one point, the center was cited for failing to institute a program for investigating, controlling and preventing the spread of infection—this failure placed the safety and health of some residents in immediate jeopardy. According to the Medicare reports, this failure was repeated months later, though the consequences were not as severe.

Lake Cook Terrace Nursing Center has been cited for other issues, as well. For example, the center was found to be failing to provide care that respected the individuality and dignity of its residents. It was also found that the center had either failed to hire staff without a legal history of abuse, or had failed to report and investigate allegations of abuse, neglect or mistreatment.

You can’t always count on a nursing home to effectively police its own staff. Always maintain and open, honest dialogue with your loved ones in nursing homes, and if you learn of abuse or neglect, contact a nursing home lawyer for help.

Quality Measures

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services also collects data on the overall well-being of residents, then reports the results. Lake Cook Terrace Nursing Center has, in the past, earned a “below average” rating for these quality measures. For example, at the time of the report, the percentage of long-term residents with depressive symptoms was more than twice the national and Illinois averages. The percentage of long-stay residents who were physically restrained was also twice the national average. These and other statistical findings helped contribute to the center’s overall “much below average” rating.

If you know a loved one suffering in a nursing home and not getting the help they need, they could be suffering from neglect. A nursing home negligence attorney can help you assess the situation and plan your next step.
