Maple Crest Nursing Home Care Centre
With 86 certified beds, the Maple Crest Care Centre has been found to have a “below average” rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which funds the Belvidere, IL, nursing home, due to numerous complaints and oversights in the home’s facility — this behavior can sometimes call for speedy intervention from an experienced Illinois nursing home negligence lawyer.
Fire Safety Problems
It has been noted in the past that Maple Crest Care Centre has several problems in the building itself, from walls and hallways that aren’t properly fire-proofed to no written plan for emergency evacuation or fire drills. Furthermore, the installed fire alarm system had not been able to be heard throughout the entire facility, and the sprinkler system had not been maintained or supplied with enough water.
Improper safety regulations could possibly be considered negligence, and if you start to believe this to be the case, don’t hesitate to call nursing home abuse attorneys A.S.A.P.
More Issues with the Grounds
Additionally, inspectors have found that the nursing home didn’t safely prepare, cook or serve its food, with unprotected cooking facilities. Maple Crest Care Centre has also failed to implement methods of preventing infection spreading from patient to patient. If this deficiency has affected your loved one, contact a nursing home abuse lawyer before it affects anyone else. Another complaint has been that, on past occasions, staff members have not adhered to their patient’s written plan for care, and has had incidents of avoidable accidents due to improper supervision in recent years.
Accidents, as we all know, happen all the time, but it’s the duty of a nursing home to provide enough management to avoid any accidents that it humanly can. If you believe a loved one hasn’t been safely supervised or neglected at your local nursing home, it may be time to contact skilled Illinois nursing home negligence attorneys to lend a hand.
