Northwoods Nursing Home Care Centre

Northwoods Care Centre is a nursing home facility located in the state of Illinois.  All types of nursing homes must follow certain guidelines for the protection of their patients.

Understanding Nursing Home Requirements

It is the responsibility and mandate of nursing homes to keep their residents safe and healthy according to the Nursing Home Act of 1987.  They need qualified professionals, such as nurses, doctors and therapists, to provide safe, quality care for their patients.

If you or your nursing home relative has suffered from abuse, mistreatment or neglect at the hands of nursing home personnel, a retirement home attorney can help with your case.  If you want to ensure justice and proper treatment for yourself or your loved one, elder law lawyers are your best option.

Medicare Ratings

The Center for Medicare rates nursing homes according to their adherence with government codes for nursing home care.  When nursing home facilities have violations involving the health, safety and well being of their patients, the facilities receive a low rating and may be subject to fines, depending on the severity and pervasiveness of the violations.  The Medicare ratings are based on inspections made by the Center for Medicare as well as complaints made against a nursing home.

Reported Inadequacies

In the past, Medicare inspectors found some instances of wrongful or inappropriate care at Northwoods Care Centre in the areas of nutrition, cleanliness, environmental and fire safety.  The problems found by Medicare staff included:

  • Failure to provide total personal care to all residents who needed it
  • Failure to provide the social services each resident needed to achieve the highest quality of life.
  • Failure to give proper care to residents using feeding tubes to avoid possible aspiration pneumonia and other health conditions.
  • Failure to adhere with proper fire safety building codes
