Lakewood Nursing & Rehabilitation Center

Because of numerous deficiencies, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has given Lakewood Nursing & Rehabilitation Center a rating of “below average.” Deficiencies in the areas of quality care and environment, as well as others, were the reasons why Medicare chose to apply this rating. In spite of the “above average” quality measure rating, this facility’s inadequacies still culminated in the poor overall rating.

Deficiencies in Resident Care

The Nursing Home Reform Act of 1987 maintains that nursing home residents have a list of individual rights. Nursing home facilities in violation of resident rights require immediate exposure. Nursing home abuse lawyers are available to investigate all cases of abuse or neglect. If you are aware of nursing home employees misusing their authority, contact an attorney for representation before the situation progresses.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services past reports indicate that Lakewood Nursing & Rehabilitation Center has failed to properly provide for residents. The Medicare report states that staff did not follow individually developed care plans, treat and prevent bedsores, or give residents reasonable accommodation for their specific living requirements.

Other Shortcomings

Health inspectors who visited the Lakewood Nursing & Rehab Center facility also discovered several other deficiencies. The report notes that staff did not ensure an accident-free environment, which actually caused harm to individuals in one instance. The report also mentions that the facility failed to provide housekeeping and maintenance services for residents, as well as possess a working infection prevention program. Administrators were also at fault, neglecting to set up a group for continual quality assessment that prevents and corrects deficiencies.

When you are aware of nursing home abuse or neglect taking place, it’s necessary to bring attention to the issues as soon as possible. Continuous mistreatment of residents will never improve without outside intervention, which is why an Illinois nursing home lawyer is the next step toward compensation. Nursing homes carry a strict responsibility to provide the most optimal care for every resident, and a facility that fails to meet Medicare standards requires reformation.
