Lemont Nursing & Rehab Center
Lemont Nursing & Rehab Center is a nursing care facility located in the suburbs of Chicago. It has room for up to 158 residents, and is a Medicare and Medicaid participant. In the past, inspectors from Medicare have rated this facility below average. Previously, the nursing home failed to keep residents free from physical restraints unless medically necessary. Another inspector cited the facility for failing to make sure that the nursing home grounds are free from accident hazards and risks that would cause preventable accidents. Finally, reports showed that this facility offered much less time for residents to spend with licensed nursing staff per day when compared to state and national averages.
According to the Nursing Home Care Act, residents in nursing homes are not allowed to be physically or medicinally restrained, unless it is deemed necessary to provide medical care. Unfortunately, some nursing homes do not follow these rules as much as they should. This nursing home was cited for failing to keep residents free of physical restraints unless medically necessary, which could be an indication of abuse elsewhere in the facility as well. If you or someone you know has experienced nursing home abuse, or you suspect this is happening to someone you love, don’t hesitate to contact a nursing home abuse lawyer for help fixing the problem.
Safe Nursing Home Grounds
Another citation on previous reports from this nursing home indicated that the facility failed to ensure that the nursing home area was free of accident hazards and safety risks, and failed to provide proper resident supervision that could prevent accidents. Failing to do this may be a sign of neglect, an indication that there is a lacking in care when it comes to maintaining an optimally safe environment for residents. If you have dealt with this sort of situation or know someone who has been injured due to a nursing home’s failure to maintain safety, talk to a nursing home neglect attorney about your rights.
This nursing home has also, in the past, been cited for offering residents less time with licensed nursing staff when compared to the state and national averages. When staying in a nursing home, residents should be able to have access to an adequate amount of time with medical professionals. Offering less time can be an indication that staff is overworked or that there is not enough staff on hand to meet the needs of the facility, which can both lead to nursing home neglect. Don’t let your loved ones settle for subpar care conditions. If you think that someone you know needs more time offered with nursing staff, contact a nursing home neglect lawyer for help.
