Lexington of Streamwood Nursing Home

There is a rating system for nursing homes which has been implemented by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It was created to accurately inform the public of every facility’s quality of care. Medicare has given Lexington of Streamwood a “below average” rating because of deficiencies found during health inspections. Although the staffing and quality measure ratings were both “average,” the health inspection largely contributed to the overall inadequate rating. Deficiencies were discovered in resident care and assessment as well as the environment of the facility.

Quality of Resident Care

Past Medicare reports for Lexington of Streamwood state that nursing staff failed to provide activities for residents that successfully met their needs and personal interests. The facility also neglected to provide special services such as injections, respiratory care and colostomy. The home did not hire a qualified dietician and, partially as a result, adequate nutritional menus were absent. Food was also reportedly not properly prepared, served or stored.

Deficiencies such as these qualify as neglect, which a nursing home attorney can help extinguish. If you believe that a nursing home fails to meet the quality standards that the Federal Nursing Home Reform Act established, compensation is available to all harmed residents.

Environmental Faults

The overall environment of Lexington of Streamwood was also inspected, which Medicare determined had not provided housekeeping or maintenance for occupants. Staff failed to dispose of garbage correctly, as well, and there was no infection prevention program present. Certain areas of the building did not contain fire-resistant construction materials or an effective extinguishing system.

Nursing home facilities that fail to keep up a quality environment require immediate improvement. Residents—or their friends or loved ones—should discuss any negligence or abuse with a nursing home lawyer. You can receive the attention you need while helping ensure that the nursing home undergoes necessary scrutiny.
