Oak Lawn Respiratory & Rehab
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Oak Lawn Respiratory & Rehab has, in the past, been cited for a wide variety of violations that all contributed to an overall “much below average” rating. These violations, compiled and detailed in a report published by Medicare, include environmental, pharmacy service, resident rights and quality care deficiencies.
Quality of Resident Care
A highly influential factor on this home’s “much below average” rating is reports of resident complaints and incidents. As reported by Medicare, many of the past complaints levied against this home have been related to the quality of care residents received. For example, on multiple occasions, this home reportedly failed to give residents the services and care that they needed to maintain their highest well being. On multiple occasions, residents were not receiving the proper treatment to prevent and heal bedsores, resulting in varying degrees of actual physical harm. At other times, this home reportedly failed to meet professional standards of quality.
No nursing home resident should ever be a victim of inadequate care. If a loved one has been injured or habitually neglected, you should seek help from a nursing home negligence attorney with experience.
According to the report published by Medicare, the staffing at Oak Lawn Respiratory & Rehab has, in the past, been below average. The report specifies, however, that health inspections have yielded even less desirable results, marring this home with a “much below average” health inspection rating. The number of health deficiencies in this home, as reported in the past by Medicare, have been more than twice the national and Illinois averages at the time.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home who has become sick or injured because of poor conditions, you shouldn’t let it slide—a nursing home lawyer can hold those responsible accountable.
