Presidential Nursing Pavilion

Presidential Pavilion, a for-profit nursing home in Illinois, provides long term residential care for patients, including those utilizing Medicare and Medicaid. As such, the 328 bed facility must follow strict regulations designed to govern the care of residents.

Responsibilities of a Nursing Home

Since 1987, the Nursing Home Reform Act has required quality care and an absence of abuse and neglect from nursing homes. If a resident, or their family member, feels that they have received substandard care, been neglected or abused, it is important that a nursing home attorney be contacted as soon as possible in order to arrange compensation.

Hiring Competent Staff

Nursing homes are responsible for hiring only those people who do not have a legal history of mistreating, neglecting or abusing residents. They are also required to both investigate and report any incidents of neglect, mistreatment or abuse of residents. Residents who have been subjected to any of the above conditions are urged to contact an Illinois nursing home abuse lawyer quickly as a sizable settlement is possible.

Quality of Care

The level of care a resident receives is tied directly to their long term health. Bed sores are a common side effect of patients who are bedridden. Special treatment is necessary in order to both prevent such sores as well as treat them once they have been formed. Inadequate care by the nursing home of these sores must be addressed immediately to reduce the likelihood of further complications.

Private and Confidential

A resident’s medical and nursing care records must be kept private and confidential in order to protect their well-being. Sloppy record keeping can lead to oversights. Residents can sometimes receive injuries as a result. If this is the case, it is imperative that a nursing home negligence attorney be contacted as soon as possible.

Inspections

During their inspections, Presidential Pavilion has been cited a total of 18 times. This is several times higher than both the state and national average. A past inspection found the nursing home did not provide an environment that was free of hazards and risks likely to cause falls.
